Engine

Cat 3406E ATAAC diesel engine is built for performance, durability, excellent fuel economy, low sound levels and it meets the European Union emission regulations through 2005. This innovative engine features Caterpillar''s exclusive Advanced Diesel Engine Management (ADEM-III) electronic control module for advanced troubleshooting and diagnostic capabilities. Temperature sensing on-demand fan slows fan speed when temperatures are low -- providing a constant net power and improving fuel efficiency.

Electronic Transmission

Designed for durability, the Caterpillar power shift transmission features a full match, high capacity torque converter and heavy-duty planetary drives. Variable Shift Control allows the operator to match the shift pattern to the application, improving operator comfort and fuel efficiency. The Integrated Braking System integrates a downshifting and neutralizer logic into the left-hand brake pedal. Free Wheel Stator torque converter increases efficiency thus lowered oil temperatures and improved fuel economy.

Axles

Large, heavy-duty axles protect internal components from the harsh environment and offer excellent serviceability. The design meets the demands of Ride Control and autoshift that often result in higher speed load and carry applications.

Structures

Articulated frame design features a durable box-section engine frame and rigid four-plate loader tower. Over 90 percent robotically welded, frame joints feature welds with deep plate penetration and excellent fusion for maximum durability and fatigue strength.

Hydraulics

Well balanced hydraulics deliver precise, low-effort control and trouble-free operation.

Operator Controls

Enhanced, low-effort operator controls for steering, shifting and bucket loading precisely respond to operator input. Operator controls are configured with Command Control steering with stick on the wheel and electro-hydraulic implement controls.

Operator Station

Redesigned cab provides improved operator comfort with new Caterpillar air suspension seat. Enhanced dash panel layout with upper right panel provides ergonomically positioned gauge indicators and switches. Wider front windshield with a larger wiper sweep for a cleaner window resulting in better visibility.

Versatility and Application Match

Obtain excellent performance in a variety of applications when using the appropriate bucket or work tool, along with payload and bucket matching.

Environmental Machine

Availability of Cat biodegradable hydraulic oil, combined with easy serviceability help you meet or exceed worldwide regulations and protect the environment. Axle ecology drains (optional), avoiding oil spillage.

Buckets and Ground Engaging Tools

Choose from a variety of Caterpillar Buckets and Work Tools to match your job conditions and with Command Control steering and fingertip bucket controls, productivity is increased.

Free Wheel Stator

Improves power train efficiency and contributes to reduced fuel consumption.

Serviceability

Easily perform daily maintenance up to 250-hour service intervals with ground-level access to all major service points including sight gauges for level checks of engine coolant, hydraulic and transmission oil. Engine oil change interval is increased to 500 hours and hydraulic oil change interval to 4000 hours thus decreasing service time and reducing owning and operating cost. The tilting hood provides unmatched access to the engine compartment and cooling system.

Preventive Maintenance

Thanks to the new Electronic Monitoring System, the Electronic Technician, the Scheduled Oil Sampling analysis and the Caterpillar Product Link system, you can anticipate potential problems and avoid unscheduled repairs.
