Spend less time carrying out maintenance. A 50-hour greasing interval, easily accessed service points and wide-opening engine hood all help to keep uptime to a maximum. With auto engine shutdown, hours not worked are not recorded, keeping your machine efficient for longer while reducing maintenance costs. The patented multifunction hydraulic oil filter provides outstanding protection to the hydraulic system.

Experience enhanced stability, breakout force, tear-out force, and lifting capacity with the ECR40. Achieve quick cycle times, even in challenging applications and with heavy loads. The high system pressure ensures impressive tractive force for climbing gradients or navigating rough terrain.
