Intelligent hydraulics provide the right amount of power at the right time. Load sensing, closed center hydraulic system, actively matches hydraulic power and flow, allowing full hydraulic forces at any engine speed.
  • Flow-sharing valves actively manage the flow of oil between each function of the machine. When the operator demands multiple operations the machine responds, providing smooth, effortless operation.
  • The torque limiter on the machine helps to provide perfect synchronization between the engine, transmission and hydraulic system.
  • Cat Backhoe Loaders have always provided a superior solution and this machine is no different. A high capacity variable displacement piston pump allows for perfect matching of power and operator demand, providing power when it is needed as well as great fuel economy.
