  • Cat® C7.1 engine offers high power density with a combination of proven electronic, fuel, and air systems.
  • Engine emissions are equivalent to U.S. EPA Tier 3.
  • Thorough component choice, design, and in-machine validation processes result in excellent reliability and uptime.


  • The proven Cat Z-bar linkage geometry with Performance Series Buckets offer excellent penetration into the pile and high breakout forces. Combined with best-in-class standard dump clearan ce, this results in low fuel consumption and exceptional production capabilities.
  • Cat designed, electronically controlled, automatic powershiftcountershaft transmission features shift protection and is equipped with a split flow oil system for efficiency, durability, and smoother gear changes.
  • Optional Fusion™ quick-coupler control features a selectable kickout to adjust for efficient bucket and fork applications.


  • Engine Idle Management System (EIMS) and Auto Engine Idle Shutdown (EIS) maximize fuel efficiency by reducing engine rpm after a specified amount of idle time.
  • Electronically controlled, hydraulically driven variable speed fan adjusts to meet the varying cooling requirements of the machine. This results in a reduced average fan speed, lowering fuel consumption, noise levels, and radiator plugging.
  • Load sensing hydraulics produce flow and pressure for theimplement system upon demand and only in amounts necessary to perform the needed work functions. This state-of-the-art system results in low fuel consumption.


  • The spacious cab features easy, intuitive controls and excellent visibility which provides a comfortable working environment for efficient all day operation.
  • Pilot-operated hydraulic implement controls deliver comfortable, low-effort operation. Two single-axis levers or one joystick are available. Both arrangements are equipped with kick-down switches.
  • The adjustable steering column includes the F-N-R shifter and turn signal control lever.
  • Unmatched viewing area with a wide, flat, and distortion-free front windshield.
  • The glass stretches to the floor of the cab for excellent visibility to the bucket and front tires.
  • The cab roof has channels which direct rain off the corners of the cab, keeping windows clear.
  • Air conditioning system is standard. Ten louvered vents allow the operator to direct the air flow to remain productive and efficient all shift long.


  • Ladders are standard on both sides of the machine to easily access the platforms.
  • Platforms are equipped with guard- and handrails for safe access to the cab.
  • The main cab door opens to the front and provides wide access to the operator environment.
  • Front and back wipers ensure that a clear view is maintained.
  • External rearview mirrors with integrated spot mirrors arestandard.
  • A rear vision camera is standard to clearly monitor movement behind the machine.
  • Hinged wheel guards, easy removal/re-install.
  • Optional windshield and power train guards.


  • Grouped service points and sight gauges allow for easy daily maintenance.
  • Convenient access to left, right, and rear of engine compartment provides excellent serviceability.
  • Electrical and hydraulic service centers, along with additional key serviceability features, help make servicing and in-field component exchange quick, easy, and efficient.
  • A rear swing-up grill gives easy cleaning access to thecooling cores.
  • Hinged wheel guards are easy to remove/re-install, providing wide access to all maintenance points and to the engine compartment.
  • Optional power train bottom guard protects the machine against damage to reduce downtime.
  • Optional integrated Cat Autolube system provides full lube system monitoring and diagnostic test visibility. One-button control, including fault flash function.
  • Caterpillar design and manufacturing techniques assureoutstanding service life.


  • This optional kit is simple to install compared to other 3rd party payload systems*.
  • On-the-go weighing** for precise load targets with provenaccuracy, flexible installation, and easy calibration and setup.
  • Brings payload weighing to the cab so operators can work more productively and deliver consistently accurate loads.
  • Increases productivity, weighing while lifting with no interruptions in loading cycle.
  • High efficiency: load to exact specification, load more trucks faster, and move more material for more revenue.
  • Improve efficiency with less rework; save time, labor, fuel,and costs.
