Years of performance

smart from the start

a history of comfort

MACHINE PERFORMANCE IS #1

In 1999, Caterpillar changed the game with the introduction of a skid steer loader equipped with standard joystick controls, and a direct drive in-line engine. These would become industry standards. Since then, one promise has remained constant as we’ve continued driving the industry forward, giving you more of what you need in your equipment, including:

• First in-cab adjustable machine performance and sensitivity settings (2007)
• The industry’s first compact track loader with a torsion suspension undercarriage (2008)
• Patented, safe engine exhaust airflow management (2012)
• First integrated rearview camera (2013)

The D3 Series Compact Track and Skid Steer Loaders are the newest performance-driven machines from Caterpillar®.

SMARTEST IN ITS CLASS

With the 2020 debut of Smart Attachments and Smart Technology in the D3 Series Skid Steer and Compact Track Loaders, Caterpillar once again proves that our machines and features are smarter by design. And while Smart Technology is certainly a game-changer for the industry – it certainly wasn’t our first:

• Electro-hydraulic controls with adjustable sensitivity and creep control (2007)
• Assistive loader controls: Dual direction self-level, return to dig, and work tool positioner (2012)
• Industry-first automatic speed sensitive ride control (2013)

Learn all about the new Smart Attachment Technology of the D3 Series Skid Steer and Compact Track Loaders.

IT’S MORE COMFORTABLE at the TOP

Redefining an industry’s standard for operator comfort is no small feat. Doing it time after time, on machine after machine for over 20 years, that’s nothing short of iconic. It’s true. Tirelessly improving the operator experience – as you can see, and feel – has been a top priority since day one. Cat operators were the first to experience:

• Joystick controls that set the standard for ease of operation back in (1999)
• Cleanest, quietest cab made possible by the industry-first sealed and pressurized one-piece cab design (2013)
• Enhanced operator comfort with 3 inches of additional leg room and up to 40% wider cab door opening (2019)

Ease-of-use and operator comfort are focal points on the new Cat® D3 Series Skid Steer and Compact Track Loaders.
