Application Specific Configuration

INCREASED PAYLOAD
Additional counterweight improves stability without reducing ground clearance or departure angle to maximize performance.

LONG LIFE SAND AND GRAVEL BUCKETS
Performance Series Buckets deliver higher fill factors and better material retention for significant productivity and fuel efficiency improvements. The buckets feature a long floor, open throat, curved side bars and additional serviceable wear plates including corner guards.

PROTECT YOUR POWER TRAIN
Increase your fording depths with optional elevated breathers. Remote mounted high on the machine for the front and rear axles and hydrostatic gear box. Allows settling pond clean out without contamination.

Efficiently Powerful

The Cat® C7.1 engine provides cleaner, quieter operation while delivering superior performance and durability through a high torque, low speed design. Caterpillar's exclusive Intelligent Power Management system monitors operator input and power availability to keep the machine working at peak efficiency and provide the operator with greater customization to suit their application.

A choice of Power Modes allows you to choose between maximum fuel efficiency or boosted power along with hydraulic speed.

STANDARD POWER MODE
