Caterpillar reports load-sensing, flow-sharing hydraulics allow for all three boom functions to be operated simultaneously and proportionally. The system provides smooth control of the boom and work tools for increased accuracy, especially when placing loads in challenging applications.
The 74.5 kW (101 hp) Cat C4.4 DITAAC mechanical control, turbo charged engine is standard and certified to Stage IIIA (Tier3) emission regulations. This engine is designed to provide excellent power and torque levels to meet jobsite requirements.
The new cab is comfortable and stylish with all-around visibility, and features a new heating and ventilation system with optional air conditioning. The single lever joystick with roller switches is easy to use, and all controls, including auxiliary hydraulics, are fully proportional. An in-cab LCD displays a wide range of information, and the keypad can be used to select various operating modes, including three different steering modes.
