In devising the ECR58, the aim was to combine all of the industry's best practices into a single product. And so, it has come to pass: the 6-tonne ECR58 compact excavator can unlock the full potential of its short swing radius and deliver top performance in a great multiplicity of applications.

ECR58 combines intelligent features with convenient operation and a balanced, innovative design. In the development of the compact excavator series, the focus was placed on implementing user feedback in order to achieve an improved ergonomic layout and functionality. Inside the cabin, the positioning of the seat and joystick has also been optimized. The common suspension of these two elements provides the user with the greatest possible control.
