Cat® Compact Track Loaders feature a steel embedded track and steel undercarriage components for maximum life in applications where maintenance, operator technique and underfoot conditions may not be ideally suited for a Multi Terrain Loader.
The Cat 279D Compact Track Loader, with its radial lift design, delivers impressive mid-lift reach and excellent digging performance with outstanding drawbar power. Its standard, suspended undercarriage system provides superior traction, flotation, stability and speed to work in a wide range of applications and underfoot conditions.
