Large inclined steps and ergonomic grab handles make cab access safe and easy.
The 422ZX has long oil and filter change intervals to keep maintenance to a minimum.
Servicing, daily checks and radiator access couldn’t be simpler, via fully opening gull-wing type doors. Remote pressure test points are quick, easy and convenient. The hydraulic valve block is readily accessible through front access panels.
Cab roof rails make glass cleaning and beacon mounting safe and easy for the operator.
A conveniently placed toolbox provides safe and secure storage.
Ground level daily checks and eye level fluid gauges provide vital information quickly and easily.
The 422ZX has oil-immersed disc brakes for a long, virtually maintenance free lifespan.
Our single face cooling pack makes it simple to clean and maintain the cooling matrix.
