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

A large portfolio of Backhoe Loader Attachments, including but not limited to, Quick Couplers, Thumbs, assorted Buckets, and Brooms are available from the factory or for field installation. Cat Backhoe Loaders will be “Dirt Ready” upon delivery.


  • The Cat® C3.6 engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage V emission standards.
  • Cat diesel engines are required to use ULSD (ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel with 15 ppm of sulfur or less) or ULSD blended with the following lower-carbon intensity fuels up to:
    • 20% biodiesel FAME (fatty acid methyl ester)
    • 100% renewable diesel, HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) and GTL (gas-to-liquid) fuels
    Refer to guidelines for successful application. Please consult your Cat dealer or “Caterpillar Machine Fluids Recommendations” (SEBU6250) for details.

  • The air conditioning system on this machine contains the fluorinated greenhouse gas refrigerant R134a (Global Warming Potential = 1430). The system contains 1.6 kg (3.5 lb) of refrigerant which has a CO2 equivalent of 2.3 metric tonnes (2.5 tons).

  • Operator Sound Pressure Level (ISO 6396:2008) – 76 dB(A)*
  • Exterior Sound Power Level (ISO 6395:2008) – 101 dB(A)
  • * Measurements were conducted with properly installed and maintained cab doors and windows closed.

  • Caterpillar factory fills with ethylene glycol coolants. Cat Diesel Engine Antifreeze/Coolant (DEAC) and Cat Extended Life Coolant (ELC) can be recycled. Consult your Cat dealer for more information.
  • Cat Bio HYDO™ Advanced is an EU Ecolabel approved biodegradable hydraulic oil.
  • Additional fluids are likely to be present, please consult the Operations and Maintenance Manual or the Application and Installation guide for complete fluid recommendations and maintenance intervals.

  • The following features and technology may contribute to fuel savings and/or carbon reduction. Features may vary. Consult your Cat dealer for details.
    – Save fuel and reduce your greenhouse gas emissions with efficiency features such as operator control modes selectable through the display and with fuel management modes.
    – Extended maintenance intervals not only reduce downtime but decrease the amount of fluid and filters that are replaced over the life of the machine.
    – Auto Idle helps reduce unnecessary fuel burn and greenhouse gas emissions by allowing the engine to automatically go into idle mode when the machine is not working.
