The Cat® C3.6 engine meets BS-V CMVR emissions standards, a step ahead of current regulatory requirements ensuring longevity in the market. The engine delivers impressive peak torque of up to 424 N·m from an optimized engine capacity of 3.6 L. This provides high fuel efficiency with up to 20% fuel saving over the previous model when operated in the new Eco mode.
The design of the Parallel lift loader gives high breakout forces with capability for dozing and loading and increased dump height. The iconic Cat excavator style boom on the backhoe enables reach over obstacles and better loading capability in narrow spaces. Robust stick design and 205 degrees of bucket rotation give a solid platform to deliver superior material retention and performance, even on tough job sites. This combined with the variable displacement hydraulic pump (132 L/min flow @ 2,200 rpm) provides faster implement speeds and efficiency.
The cabin is designed to meet ROPS (roll over protective structure) and FOPS (falling object protective structure), so the operator is protected. The stylish, spacious cabin gives excellent all-around visibility with fully integrated operator workstation including; suspension seat, clear information cluster and ergonomic controls. Opening side windows, door windows and large rear window enhance operator comfort, while improved cab mountings and window and door seals lower in cab vibrations and noise. The machine hood is opened from a button inside the cab to prevent vandalism and braking effort is lower to improve safety and reduce operator fatigue. Battery disconnect comes as standard for all machines.
Operators have a wide range of worktool options for their machine. General purpose buckets come as standard with the optional multi-purpose loader buckets providing the operator the extra ability to grab, backfill, doze and grade. At the rear of the machine there are a variety of hoe bucket options from 0.12 to 0.3 m3, the Cat B8S hammer and other attachments can be supported through multiple auxiliary options including lines and brackets as well as manual hoe quick coupler.
The machine options are designed to enhance the versatility of the backhoe loader. 2WD and 4WD options are available to better handle terrain. The operator can be more comfortable with air conditioning and adjustable vents that give optimal cooling. Additional front work lamps and sun visor increase operator visibility whether working night or day.
Components and structures on the machine are designed for high performance and to deliver rugged durability. The performance increases of this machine have been matched with increased weight and strength of structures. The large torque tube on the loader arms and bucket, strengthened frame, reinforced excavator style boom, proven engine and drivetrain and robust hydraulic components all deliver superior machine life and performance.
