‘Smart’ might be a buzzword attached to almost anything nowadays, but not when it comes to Cat Smart Attachments for the Cat D3 Series Skid Steer and Compact Track Loaders. These industry-first attachments adapt to transform your machine for the task at hand, so you can do more with less effort.

Hard work doesn’t mean you need to break a sweat.

 

Just because a job is tough, doesn’t mean it needs to be uncomfortable. Your experience while operating a Cat D3 Series Skid Steer and Compact Track Loader is important to making sure you always perform your best. So, we added more cab space, intuitive joystick controls, and up to a 40% wider door opening to keep you comfortable, no matter the job.

Time to make hard jobs look easy.

 

The Cat D3 Series Compact Track Loaders have the performance and maneuverability you need to power through the job, even in the most demanding situations. The performance-tuned undercarriage eliminates unwanted rocking and pitching when handling heavy loads — for confidence when you need it most.

The compact track loader specs you want.

 

Not to brag, but these numbers are looking good.

Tough working conditions? The Cat D3 Series Compact Track Loaders have the performance and versatility to finish any job.
