Features

Comfortable Cab

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.

Advanced Display

Maximize machine capability and control with optional 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.

Powerful Performance

High performance power train provides maximum performance and production capability through the Electronic Torque Management system and an electronic hand/foot throttle with decel pedal capability. High Flow hydraulic system is available for applications that demand maximum hydraulic work tool performance. Electronically controlled Cat C2.2 engine provides high horsepower and torque while meeting U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final (EU Stage IIIB) 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.

Suspended Undercarriage

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. Work in a broader range of applications with an optional wide bar-tread track that delivers better traction in snow, more flotation and less ground disturbance.

Outstanding Versatility

Broad range of performance matched Cat Work Tools make the Cat Compact Track Loader the most versatile machine on the job site.

Easy Service

Ground level access to all daily service and routine maintenance points helps reduce machine downtime for greater productivity.
