Ergonomic Operator Station

Ample legroom inside the cab makes rotating the seat simple. The air suspension seat provides comfort to the operator while roading.

Joystick Controls

Pilot joysticks are available for additional operator comfort, reduced fatigue and increased productivity. New Proportional Thumb Rollers on the Pilot Joysticks places E-Stick and Rear Auxiliary Controls at the operator's fingertips.

Load Sensing Hydraulics

The Cat Backhoe Loader’s load sensing piston pump provides full hydraulic lifting and digging forces at any engine speed. Variable flow pump matches hydraulic power to work demands.

Machine Performance

The proven Cat C3.6 engine delivers solid performance, meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage V emission standards, and requires no diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).

Machine Versatility

The all new Integrated Tool Carrier (IT Coupler) for Single Tilt Loader Arm configurations are available from the factory or for simple field installation. The Cat Backhoe Loader with Integrated Tool Carrier (IT Coupler) will be the most versatile machine on the job site providing quick connection to a variety of Cat Attachments.

Cat Attachments
