Noise levels are down from 78 to 69dB(A), which equates to a 50% reduction. Visibility has been boosted by a single piece curved windscreen which is kept clean by four wipers clearing 92% of the glass area. The cab itself is 90mm longer which has also meant the fuel tank capacity can be increased. Improved air flow with a climate control option as well as new digital displays are also part of the new accommodation.
A redesigned chassis means a number of models get a lift boost, for example the 538-60 can handle 200kg more than its predecessor.
