Overview

Building on the success of the F Series, Cat Backhoe Loaders now incorporate the latest in clean engine emissions technology, which meets EU Stage IIIB emission standards. With a host of new features that deliver improved fuel economy, introduced with the new electronic engine, and unobstructed visibility thanks to an A-post mounted exhaust stack, this is no mere engine update.
