C18 Engine with ACERT® Technology

A combination of innovations working at the point of combustion, ACERT® Technology optimizes engine performance while meeting U.S. EPA Tier 3 and European EU Stage IIIa emission regulations for off-road applications.

Propel System

Hydrostatic drive with hydraulic flow provided by a variable displacement piston-type pump. Drive motors on each track provide balanced tractive effort.

Rotor Drive

Cat wet clutch delivers maximum available horsepower to each ground engaging tool while providing long service life and reliability.

Rotor Selection

Choice of three rotor designs for different applications and production requirements. Tools are mounted in drive-in, knock-out holders for quick and easy replacement.

Primary Collecting Conveyor

A large discharge opening and wide collecting conveyor belt clears out the cutter box quickly for increased production. Water spray system provides lubrication and controls dust.

Front Loading Conveyor

High capacity and versatility adds to productivity. Momentary boost function increases material handling to load long tractor trailers from the rear.

Operator’s Station

Designed for efficiency, productivity and simple operation from either side of the console. Easy to reach controls minimize operator fatigue.

Electronic Control Module (ECM)

Reliable Cat technology that makes machine operation simple and self-diagnostics simplifies troubleshooting.

Automatic Grade and Slope Control

The optional contacting or non-contacting grade controls provide precise control of the machine to a preset cutting depth. System can be configured to control grade or cross slope.


Four steering modes provide excellent handling for precise control and production.

Reliability and Serviceability

Reliability and serviceability are integrated into every Cat machine. These important features keep your machine investment profitable.
