You can get those features with the other models as part of packages.
We got all these options on the 289d came in mid 70s otd.

I demoed a svl75 and my biggest complaint was hitting my knee on the side stack a/c. Solid machine though.

I think I'm going to set up a 289d demo on the new house site. Spreading #1's, rough grading the soil from the basement dig, moving some demoed concrete etc... Will have our rc100 on site as well. Get to play with our new grapple we ordered.
