Hydraulics Smooth responsive hydraulics give the level of control demanded by the customer in any application, from fine grading and dozing to backfilling. Powerful bucket and stick digging forces combined with fast cycle times result in world class productivity and performance. Automatic two speed function improves jobsite maneuverability with precise control by balancing travel speed with the torque needed for turning and travelling on inclines. Dozer blade float function enables easy ground levelling for landscaping and finish grade applications as well as more efficient jobsite clean-up. Economy mode can be selected with the in-cab LCD monitor and provides better fuel efficiency in a platform well suited for less experienced operators.
Controls Joystick mounted auxiliary and boom swing control enhances machine controllability. Intuitive controls give fine modulation. The levers and dozer function ensure “as new” levels of controllability are maintained throughout the machine life.
Lift Capacity The new Caterpillar D-Series has industry leading lift capacity matched with outstanding stability in a compact radius package. This provides the on-site versatility required to match the diverse and continually changing needs of the customer.
Stick and Boom A choice of standard or long, thumb ready sticks enable the customer to match the machine’s digging envelope to their requirements. The boom options feature a fixed boom to maximize stability and lifting and a swing boom design that maximizes reach. The swing boom also allows the operator to trench parallel to tracks, dig close to structures and dig a box-section without repositioning the undercarriage.
