Cat® 440 & 450 Backhoe Loaders

Inspired By You

Real Customers + Real Insights = Real Features

We talked to customers about what they’d like to see in our new machines. Because it’s you who demolishes, excavates, landscapes and paves. So it’s important that the new 440 and 450 Backhoe Loaders will work hard for you and your operation.

Cat 440 and 450 Backhoe Loaders


We moved your loader and hoe controls into two seat-mounted joysticks so both are always within reach. Allowing you to easily reposition the machine when trenching.


These backhoes have some real power, right where you need it. The new 450 has 19% higher breakout force from the previous 450F model.


We’ve increased the lift capacity and swing torque for our 450, and if you’re looking for a 15 ft backhoe, you won’t find one that can lift more than our new 440.
