Benefits and Features

Ample legroom inside the cab makes rotating the seat simple. The air suspension seat provides comfort to the operator while roading. New backhoe control pods allow for unlimited adjustability.

The Cat Backhoe Loader’s load sensing piston pump provides full hydraulic lifting and digging forces at any engine speed. Variable flow pump matches hydraulic power to work demands.

The Cat C3.6 engine delivers solid performance and meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage V emission standards by utilizing Selective Catalytic Reduction technology with a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst. The system allows the operator to disconnect the machine, even while the diesel exhaust fluid is being purged from the system.

The all new Integrated Tool Carrier (IT Coupler) for Single Tilt Loader Arm configurations are available from the factory or for simple field installation. The Cat Backhoe Loader with Integrated Tool Carrier (IT Coupler) will be the most versatile machine on the job site providing quick connection to a variety of Cat Attachments.

A large portfolio of Backhoe Loader Attachments, including but not limited to, Quick Couplers, Thumbs, assorted Buckets, and Brooms are available from the factory or for field installation. Cat Backhoe Loaders will be “Dirt Ready” upon delivery.

A Four Speed Powershift Transmission is standard to make shifting gears smooth and as simple as twisting the Powershuttle Lever.

The SAHR Parking Brake is activated at the push of a button and automatically engages when the machine is powered down.
