The plating offers increased protection. The hinges and division also increase the ease of maintenance. The Agco 49 LFTN Stage-V engines of the M-models are equipped with hydraulic valve lifters that reduce the need for maintenance.
The exhaust aftertreatment system has been taken out of the engine compartment to provide better access to the parts to be serviced.
The quick connect coupling added to the hydraulic oil tank facilitates oil change, and the filter is also easier to change. In the M-models, the batteries are factory-made to be maintenance-free.
The M-models are standard equipped with heavy-duty plating that is easier to open after the redesign, and the parts to be serviced are easier to access.
