The load capacity on the two 6.0m models has been increased by 100kg, boosting the maximum lift capacity of the 633 to 3.3t and the 636 3.7t. The maximum lift capacity of the 7.0m 737 is up by 200kg to 3.7t.

The lift capacity of the 7.0m/4.2t 742 and 9.1m/3.5t 935 remains unchanged, but all models have new transmissions. The standard box on the 633, 737 and 935 is a manual shifting four forward/three reverse version, with the option of a six forward/three reverse semi-automatic transmission. The top speed on both 34km/hr.

Standard on the 636 and 742 is a six forward/three reverse transmission (max. 40km/hr), which is fully automatic through the forward speeds, and can also be operated semi-automatically through gears four, five and six.

Other new features on the revised Farmlifts include automatic steering alignment, which eliminates the need to ensure the front and rear wheels are aligned before changing steering modes. A tilting and telescopic steering column is now standard on the 636 and 742 (optional on the 633, 737 and 935).

Other new options include an auxiliary pressure release switch (located on the front light support bracket), which simplifies the connection of attachments that require auxiliary hydraulic power. Also, all models are available with two fully integrated automatic lubrication systems, and in the cab, all Farmlifts can be specified with a heated and pneumatically-cushioned seat.
