Benefits and Features

Adjustable Seat Mounted Controls improve ergonomics by increasing operator comfort and legroom. Operators have Loader and Backhoe Controls in the palm of their hands, whether they are facing the Loader, the Backhoe, or sitting off set. Variable Speed Steer reduces operator fatigue in applications, such as truck loading, by reducing the number of steering wheel rotations required to turn the machine. The new Spring Applied Hydraulically Released (SAHR) Parking Brake is controlled by simply pressing a button.

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 advanced hydraulic system allows the operator to adjust Loader and Backhoe Auxiliary Flow matching attachment specifications, program Loader Bucket Kickout and Return to Dig, and Enable Parallel Lift.

The Cat C4.4 ACERT™ engine delivers solid performance and meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emission standards by utilizing Selective Catalytic Reduction technology with a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst. The new Backhoe design and optimized Loader Linkage increases lift capacity and breakout forces on both ends of the machine. A redesigned Loader System provides superior machine balance and stability regardless of the ground conditions.

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 variety of Mechanical and Hydraulic Cat Backhoe Couplers are available from the factory or for field installation. Options include, but not limited to, Dual Lock Pin Grabber Couplers and Pin Lock Couplers. Redesigned General Purpose and Multi Purpose Loader Buckets increase digging performance and improve bucket durability for long term value.
