Operator Station

Superior comfort to keep you productive throughout the work day.

All Day Comfort

Comfort 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. The adjustable seat and low effort controls keep the operator comfortable throughout the work day.

Low Effort Joystick Controls

Ergonomic, pilot hydraulic controls deliver precise control with minimal effort. The right joystick controls the loader raise, lower and tilt functions while the left joystick controls the forward and reverse travel speed plus direction. Optional deluxe joysticks provide additional auxiliary controls with fingertip control of many work tool functions, including proportional work tool hydraulics and work tool electrical. Basic and deluxe joystick functions include one-touch continuous auxiliary hydraulic flow and momentary auxiliary hydraulic flow.

Excellent Visibility

The wide cab opening offers an exceptional view to the work tool. The sloped angle of the engine compartment allows excellent visibility to the rear of the machine. The standard rear view mirror gives the operator a panoramic view of the machine's rear and sides. The side windows remove easily for cleaning.

Additional Features for Maximum Comfort

The B-Series 3 machines offer the following additional features to help you on the job:
  • Suspension seat option for even greater operator comfort.
  • Easy to read instrument panels.
  • Optional air conditioner and heater for greater comfort in extreme conditions.
  • Standard floor mat with footrest provides non-slip surface and can be removed for easy cleaning.
  • Ergonomic, contoured and padded armbar provides comfortable operation.


Exceptional lift, breakout and power to meet your needs.

High Performance Hydraulic System

Maximum power and reliability are built into the machine’s hydraulic system. In addition to providing power to the wheels, 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 hydraulic pumps are driven directly off the engine for maximum hydraulic performance and reliability - no belts are used. The hydraulic system also features:
  • Standard auxiliary hydraulics to power work tools that are available through quick connect hydraulic couplings rigidly mounted to the loader arm.
  • Cat ToughGuard™ hoses for increased reliability and durability.

High Efficiency Cooling System

Cooling capacity is maximized through the use of a side-by-side cooling package and hydraulically driven cooling fan.
  • High-efficiency, hydraulic oil cooler lets the machine work longer and harder in higher ambient temperatures, even with continuous work tool usage.
  • Efficient, hydraulically driven cooling fan provides cooling even when the machine is under load.
  • Optional variable speed demand fan provides improved fuel efficiency, increased machine performance, reduced sound levels and improved cold weather performance.

Power Train

Aggressive performance with fuel efficiency.

Cat Engine

The high performance power train provides high engine horsepower and torque. The B-Series 3 machines feature rugged, reliable Cat engines that meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim and EU Stage IIIA emissions requirements.

Hand and Foot Throttles

Hand 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.

Anti-Stall Feature

The anti-stall system maximizes machine power at all times by matching the engine torque with the operational requirements of the hystat and implement systems. This load sensing feature prevents the engine from stalling even during part throttle operation, keeping productivity high and fuel consumption low.

Lift Linkages

Built for tough jobs.

Radial Lift

The 216B Series 3, with its radial lift design, delivers excellent digging performance with superior mid-lift reach.
