Durability

  • Robot welded, Caterpillar designed boom and sticks are built for long service.
  • Greased track link between pins and bushings increases undercarriage life and reduces noise.

Safety

  • The hydraulic activation lever locks out all hydraulic functions.
  • Handrails, anti-skid plating, and countersunk bolts reduce slipping and tripping.
  • A ground-level engine shutoff switch shuts down the engine in case of emergency.
  • Optional rearview camera and mirrors enhance visibility.
  • The side-view camera enhances visibility on the boom side of the machine to help make operators more effective and efficient (Europe only).
