New control valve Operability enhancement resulting from the improvement of internal structure of the new control valve. Hydraulic fluid flow has been made efficient with the newly adopted bucket flow circuit.

Moreover, great reduction of pressure loss because of the adoption of the large diameter spool. It also contributes to reduction in fuel consumption. Minimization of energy loss, pressure loss reduction, optimization of every hydraulic piping all thanks to the increment of the piping diameter in front of the bucket and arm cylinder. Great improvement made on the cycle time: Implementation of dramatic improvement on work efficiency due to optimization of the hydraulic circuit also enhances its usability. At E-mode, it is also possible to operate at a speed equal to or faster than the P-mode of the previous model. (HD1430V). The KATO original cab is durable and of smart design.
