The FEH is a VBO without pilot pressure lines. The joysticks and pedals are fully electric, but give the operator the same feeling as hydraulic joysticks. FEH sends an electric signal to the controller and as such is more precise and provides faster information. Back pressure and energy loss are therefore eliminated, by delivering the exact amount of oil needed. As we don’t have pilot pressure, we save energy, so we save fuel. In fact, FEH offers a very significant 8% less fuel burn compared to the VBO system. This is on top of the 7% decrease in fuel consumption already achieved in the standard DX225LC-7, compared to the previous DX225LC-5 model.
The DX225LC-7X is equipped with the latest generation Develon engine. Stage V compliant, this engine boasts extremely low emissions because reducing our environmental impact is paramount to us.
