Superior comfort to keep you productive throughout the work day.
Sealed and Pressurized CabComfort and ease of operation have been designed into every aspect of the operator station. The wide, spacious interior and uncluttered floor provide a comfortable work environment with excellent head, shoulder and leg room to keep productivity high and fatigue low.Operators spend long hours in the machine. The new sealed and pressurized cab keeps dust out and clean air in for greater operator comfort. Reduced sound levels within the cab also help reduce fatigue.
Seat Mounted Joystick ControlsErgonomic, seat mounted joystick controls enable a wide range of comfortable operating positions for operators of any size. The seat and controls are independently adjustable to meet the specific needs of the operator.
Air Ride Seat AvailableAn air ride seat provides an unparalleled level of comfort in a multi terrain loader.
Advanced Machine Information and Control SystemThe optional Advanced Machine Information and Control System provides easy to read and understand information regarding hydraulic oil and engine coolant temperature, engine speed, Selectable Work Speed Control and Selectable Implement Control. It also includes a service mode for checking service codes and status of components.
Additional Features for Maximum Comfort
- Easy to read instrument panels
- Optional air conditioner and heater provides greater comfort in extreme conditions
- Optional Selectable Pattern Control which allows the operator to select the control pattern they are most familiar with for greater productivity.
Rubber Track Undercarriage
Unique undercarriage delivers low ground pressure, stability and superior suspension.
Low Ground PressureCat Multi Terrain Loaders feature a rugged, durable rubber track that is lightweight and pliable, yet reinforced with high tensile strength cords. The undercarriage provides low ground pressure, allowing the machine to operate over sensitive surfaces and in soft underfoot conditions. The elevated positive drive system keeps drive components away from ground debris. Heavy duty torsion axles suspend each side of the machine frame independently for a smoother ride over rough terrain. Components can be replaced as individual items wear, reducing owning and operating costs. The 277C is available with either a single or dual level suspension undercarriage.
Single Level Suspension UndercarriageThe single level suspension undercarriage distributes the load and greatly reduces shock and vibration throughout the machine for a comfortable ride and excellent bucket load retention.
Dual Level Suspension UndercarriageThe dual level suspension undercarriage uses the same concept as the single level with the addition of oscilating bogie wheels. The result is more track on the ground, better load retention, improved operator comfort, better use of high travel speed and the best ride in the industry.
Radial Lift Linkage
Built for tough working conditions.
Radial Lift DesignThe 277C features a radial lift design, delivering excellent digging performance with superior performance.
Aggressive performance with fuel efficiency.
EngineThe high performance power train provides high engine horsepower and torque. The C-Series features the Cat C3.4 DIT engine--a rugged, reliable engine that meets worldwide emissions requirements.
Hand and Foot ThrottlesHand and foot throttles allow the operator to match engine speed to the task. The hand throttle is ideal for jobs requiring constant engine speed such as cold planing, trenching or snow blowing. The foot throttle lets the operator vary engine speed and minimize fuel consumption for other tasks such as load and carry, truck loading, grading and dozing.
Electronic Torque ManagementThe Electronic Torque Management system maximizes power to the ground and prevents the engine from stalling in tough digging and dozing applications for maximum productivity. The system allows part throttle operation which provides smoother machine operation and reduces fuel consumption.
Exceptional lift, breakout and power to meet your needs.
Maximum power and reliability are built into the Cat Multi Terrain Loader hydraulic system. In addition to providing power to the tracks, this system also provides the loader lift and tilt functions, powers the auxiliary circuit to drive work tools and drives the engine cooling fan. The C-Series hydraulic system features:
- Increased lift and tilt breakout forces allowing you to move more material and get more done.
- Continuous demand fan for improved fuel efficiency, increased horsepower, reduced sound levels and improved cold weather performance.
- Cat ToughGuard™ hoses for increased reliability and durability.
High Flow XPSHigh flow XPS hydraulic system offers both increased flow and increased pressure to maximize work tool performance.
Selectable Implement ControlThe Selectable Implement Control option with three levels of control gives the operator the ability to adjust the responsiveness of the lift and tilt functions for more precise implement control.
Two Speed OptionTwo speed option increases top travel speed to 14.9 kph (9.3 mph) so you can move around the jobsite faster.
