Diesel locomotive EffiShunter 300 is primarily intended for shunting service. The locomotive is equipped with alternating/direct current power transmission (AC/DC) from the diesel engine to two powered wheelsets. Parameters of the vehicle are optimized for shunting in depots and stations, and for operation on industrial sidings and special lines (e.g. the underground).

The two-axle vehicle undercarriage consists of individually powered wheelsets with suspension and shock-absorption. The traction motors are nose-suspended on the axles using sliding bearings. The drive unit is located in the front hood of the locomotive and comprises the Caterpillar diesel engine and the Siemens traction alternator. The front hood space includes most of the auxiliary drives, engine cooling block and the pneumatic unit. Electrical switchgear is installed in the rear hood. The power regulation and control of the entire locomotive is ensured by the control system made by MSV elektronika with cruise control function and remote diagnostics by means of GSM and GPS technologies. The locomotive is equipped with a DAKO air brake and a parking (stored-energy) brake.
