Cat power train components provide maximum productivity.
3408E EngineCaterpillar 3408E Engine utilizes the Hydraullically actuated, Electronically controlled Unit Injector (HEUI) fuel system and Electronic Control Module (ECM) to deliver power and efficiency in the most demanding applications.
Decreased SmokeHigh injection pressures, independent of engine speed, decrease smoke and emissions while improving response.
Injection timingInjection timing and duration are variable to improve fuel efficiency, improve cold starting and decrease smoke and emissions.
Injection rate shapingInjection rate shaping reduces emissions and reduces engine noise.
Mechanical partsReduction in mechanical parts, improves reliability.
Electronic controlElectronic control on the 3408E engines provides many benefits:
AftercoolerAftercooler cools inlet charge temperature to increase power while reducing thermal stresses that can cause premature wear of pistons, rings and liners.
PistonsOil-cooled pistons and full-length, water-cooled cylinder liners deliver maximum heat transfer for longer component life.
Engine oil coolerEngine oil cooler maintains optimum oil temperature for proper cooling and longer lubricant life.
TransmissionPlanetary Power Shift Transmission.
Torque ConverterHeavy duty torque converter is designed to transfer maximum available torque from the engine to the transmission, allowing the 834B to easily move through stockpiled floor material, mine face clean up, mine road maintenance and general earthmoving.
BrakesNew axle-shaft, oil-disc brakes are fully hydraulic, completely sealed and never need adjustment.
AxlesAxles are high capacity bevel gear sets and differentials use new gear cutting process for increased strength, providing long life in high duty cycle application. New cutting process also reduces gear noise.
Comfort and convenience contribute to productivity.
CabAir conditioned, sound suppressed cab with Rollover Protective Structure is resiliently mounted to reduce sound and vibration.
Air filtrationAir pressurization and filtration provide fresh, clean air for the cab.
VisibilityOperator sits high in the cab for excellent visibility.
Radio12-volt converter with power lines for radio.
Steering columnMultiple-position, adjustable steering column puts steering wheel and transmissionlever within easy reach.
Flow-amplified steeringFlow-amplified steering delivers responsive, precise control with automotive "feel."
Contour Series SeatCaterpillar Contour Series Seat is ergonomically designed, variably adjustable, and provides greater operator comfort.
Multiple box-section construction with heat treated moldboard and DH-2 steel cutting edges and end bits to prolong blade life.
Fast production dozingFast production dozing in stockpiled material and general earthmoving.
Operator controlsTwo levers at operator's right control dozer lift, tilt and tip.
Complete unitComplete unit consists of blade, push arms, dozer-length skid plate with replaceable wear plates, reversible cutting edges, self-sharpening end bits, hydraulic lines guard and hydraulic lift, tip and tilt cylinders.
Simplified service means more productive time.
Service featuresMany convenient service features keep the Cateprillar 834 Wheel Dozer on the job.
