Advantages and Features


  • The Cat® C4.4 engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 3 and EU Stage IIIA emission standards.
  • Optimize fuel consumption during both working and traveling applications with our efficient fuel system.
  • Reduce fuel consumption thanks to the Automatic Engine Speed Control; it lowers engine speed when no operation is performed.
  • Optimize fuel consumption with fuel savers like one-touch low-idle control and enhanced Eco Mode.
  • Enjoy quick response to changing loads with the constant power strategy.
  • Get the right balance of reach and digging forces from various boom and stick options.
  • Boost lift up to 10% using the one-touch heavy lift button.
  • Further boost productivity with options like joystick steering or SmartBoom™.
  • Experience fast and smooth combined movements when working and swinging simultaneously thanks to the dedicated swing pump.


  • Increase production and minimize operating cost with Cat Connect technology solutions. Link technologies wirelessly connect you to your job site, providing machine location, hours, fuel usage, idle time and event codes.


  • Move fast with 34 km/h (21.1 mile/h) maximum travel speed.
  • Build the machine you want with multiple configurations and attachments.
  • Ensure quick attachment changes with optional medium- and high-pressure hydraulics.
  • Set up to 10 attachment flows and pressures with optional tool control.


  • Count on the Roll Over Protective Structure (with bolt-on cab for top and front guards) to help keep you safe in the event of a rollover.
  • Enjoy simple, ergonomically designed controls for easy operation.
  • Enjoy safe comfortable drive with the optional ride control that dampens front part motion.
