Air Conditioning System

Air Conditioning
The air conditioning system on this machine contains the fluorinated greenhouse gas refrigerant R134a (Global Warming Potential = 1430). The system contains 0.81 kg of refrigerant which has a CO2 equivalent of 1.158 metric tonnes.

Comfortable Cab

Industry leading sealed and pressurized cab option provides a cleaner and quieter operating environment with excellent work tool visibility. Available high-back, heated, air ride seat with seat mounted adjustable joystick controls makes Cat Multi Terrain Loaders the industry leader in operator comfort.

Advanced Display

Maximize machine capability and control with the standard Advanced Display providing on-screen adjustments for implement response, Hystat™ response and creep control. Also features multi-language functionality with customizable layouts, security system and rearview camera.

Powerful Performance

High performance power train provides maximum performance and production capability through the Electronic Torque Management system, standard two speed travel and an electronic hand/foot throttle with decel pedal capability. XHP hydraulic system provides high flow and high pressure that delivers industry leading hydraulic horsepower to efficiently run even the most power hungry work tools. Electronically controlled Cat C3.8 engine provides high horsepower and torque while meeting U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emission standards. Cat “Intelligent Leveling” system (ILEV) provides industry leading technology, integration and features such as dual direction self level, work tool return to dig and work tool positioner.

Suspended Undercarriage

Standard dual level suspension undercarriage combined with the Speed Sensitive Ride Control system provides better load retention, improved operator comfort and one of the smoothest rides in the industry. The dual suspension undercarriage features oscillating roller wheel assemblies that independently pivot to provide maximum track on the ground.

Outstanding Versatility

Broad range of performance matched Cat Work Tools make the Cat Multi Terrain Loader the most versatile machine on the job site.
