Long Term Value and Durability

Unmatched Durability


  • The full box-section rear frame resists torsional shock and twisting forces.

  • Solid through-width push beams transfer and absorb stresses through a larger portion of the frame.

  • Robust structures withstand the toughest conditions and multiple lifecycles to improve your bottom line.

  • Resilient, durable blades are designed with excellent dozing and rolling characteristics.

  • Optimized axle mounting results in increased structural integrity.

  • Castings in the engine and frame are used in high stress areas to spread high loads.

  • One-piece castings enhance strength in key pin areas.

Move More with Less Fuel

Optimum Efficiency


  • Experience reliable efficiency with complete control over injection timing, duration, and pressure with Mechanically Actuated Electronic Unit Injection (MEUI™).

  • Best-in-class Cat planetary powershift transmission features consistent, smooth shifting and efficiency through integrated electronic controls.

  • Extended engine life and improved fuel efficiency with reduced rated speed.

  • Impeller Clutch Torque Converter (ICTC) and Rimpull Control System (RCS) provide precise rimpull control.

  • Load sensing hydraulic steering system enables precise machine control for easier loading.

  • Lock-up torque converter with advanced control of lock-up speed.

Safety First

Increased Safety


  • Battery disconnect, emergency engine shutdown, and stairway light switch are accessed through the ground level power service center.

  • Optional Cat Detect with Object Detection System (rearview camera and radar) or Vision (rearview camera) increase operator awareness around the machine.

  • Cab-mounted LED strobes provide warning for others near the machine.

  • Wider stairs with reduced stair angles increase safety for operators.

  • Access stairs via a powered platform from cab or ground level and have emergency egress access.

Technology that Gets Work Done

Innovative Technology


  • Integrated technologies allow you to monitor, manage, and enhance your jobsite operations.

  • Product Link™ remote monitoring provides valuable insight into machine or fleet performance through the VisionLink® interface, so you can make decisions that boost jobsite efficiency and lower operating costs.

  • Vital Information Management System (VIMS™) 3G touchscreen monitor gives access to a wide range of sensor information and enhanced machine data to resolve problems before machine failure.

  • Optional Cat Detect technologies enhance awareness of the environment around the machine for increased safety.

Work In Comfort

Enhanced Operator Comfort


  • Steering and Transmission Integrated Control System (STIC™) combines directional selection, gear selection, and steering into a single lever, maximizing responsiveness and control while reducing operator fatigue.

  • Operators can easily enter and exit the cab with fold-up STIC steer/armrest, reduced access stairway angles, and standard stairway lighting.
