The ECR58 has a comprehensive range of attachments which are tailored exactly to the machine and easy to switch over. It includes buckets, breakers, thumbs, plus the new Tilt Quick Coupler, offering a tilting angle of up to 90° in either orientation. Hydraulic attachments can be operated from the proportional fingertip controls, and flow settings can be customised using the work modes. Operators can store settings for up to 20 tools in the library. For each tool, a large set of parameters can be adjusted to match the machine to the application.

Other features include high stability, breakout force, tear-out force, and lifting capabilities. Intelligent features, such as the advanced hydraulic system with load sensing and flow sharing, are said to boost fuel efficiency. ECO mode and engine auto-idle are standard features, further reducing fuel consumption. With the auto engine shut down, hours that are not worked are not recorded, reducing maintenance costs while contributing to a higher resale value. When it comes to servicing the machine, some maintenance tasks have been removed, and some service intervals doubled.

Power comes from a D2.6H diesel rated at 35.5kW and the machine tips the scales at 5.84tonnes, with a 0.114m3 bucket as standard.
