In a statement, the company said that: “The net result is a more productive, more durable, more efficient machine that is comfortable to operate and can take on the toughest jobs in a range of heavy construction and mining applications”.

Powering the new 390D L is the 18 litre diesel engine, which is EU Stage IIIA and US EPA Tier 3 compliant and rated at 523 hp (390 kW).

The C18 features advanced electronic control, precise fuel delivery and refined air management for optimum performance, fuel efficiency and
emissions control. Its maximum lift capacity is 28 tonnes, up from the 24 tonnes of the 385C L.
