Available high-back, heated, air ride seat with seat mounted adjustable joystick controls makes Cat Multi Terrain Loaders the industry leader in operator comfort.

Maximize machine capability and control with the standard Advanced Display providing on-screen adjustments for implement response, Hystat™ response and creep control. Also features multi-language functionality with customizable layouts, security system and rearview camera.

High performance power train provides maximum performance and production capability through the Electronic Torque Management system, standard two speed travel and an electronic hand/foot throttle with decel pedal capability. High Flow XPS hydraulic system is available for applications that demand maximum hydraulic work tool performance. Electronically controlled Cat C3.8 engine provides high horsepower and torque while meeting U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emission standards. 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 dual level suspension undercarriage combined with the optional Speed Sensitive Ride Control system provides better load retention, improved operator comfort and one of the smoothest rides in the industry. The dual suspension undercarriage features oscillating roller wheel assemblies that independently pivot to provide maximum track on the ground.
