Benefits and Features

Industry leading sealed and pressurized cab option provides a cleaner and quieter operating environment with excellent work tool visibility. Available high-back, heated, air ride seat with seat mounted adjustable joystick controls makes the D Series the industry leader in operator comfort.

High performance power train provides maximum performance and production capability through the Electronic Torque Management system, optional two speed travel and an industry exclusive electronic hand/foot throttle with decel pedal capability. Electronically controlled Cat C3.3B engine provides high horsepower and torque while meeting U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final (EU Stage IIIB) emission standards. High Flow hydraulic system is available for applications that demand maximum hydraulic work tool performance.

Cat “Intelligent Leveling” system (ILEV) provides industry leading technology, integration and optional features such as dual direction self level, work tool return to dig and work tool positioner. Standard fully independent torsion axle suspension combined with the optional Speed Sensitive Ride Control system improves operation on rough terrain, enabling better load retention, increased productivity and greater operator comfort. Broad range of performance matched Cat Work Tools makes the Cat Multi Terrain Loader the most versatile machine on the job site.
