This model offers mechanical loader and hoe controls with pilot hoe option. Like all models, the 428 offers a display screen to choose your own settings and power modes, plus powerful hydraulics when you need them. Product Link™ data helps increase your productivity and reduce costs.

With its electrco-hydraulic seat-mounted controls, you can work precisely with the least possible effort in the 432. By moving controls onto the seat, we've created a cab with more legroom, storage, and visibility out of the back. You can use the ergonomic Power Shuttle Lever to shift gears easily. There is no floor-mounted gear-shift lever, so you have more room to work.

The 444 includes electro-hydraulic seat-mounted controls. With dual mode, either you can face the loader and control the backhoe implements or vice versa. Alternatively, you can twist the seat to an offset position and operate both loader and hoe together.
