Forestry/Land Clearing Guarding

Extensive Guarding helps protect critical machine components, body panels and the cooling system from being damaged by debris in clearing and forestry-related environments.

Debris Resistant Features

A debris resistant cooling system helps reduce plugging, extend service life, and enhance productivity.

Recommended Options

Several additional options are recommended to complement the Forestry Guarding Arrangement and ensure peak performance. Consult with your Caterpillar dealer for further recommendations.

Differential Steering System

Differential Steering maintains power to both tracks while turning. Operator controls machine speed, direction and steering with the tiller bar controller, while maximizing production.


The Caterpillar elevated sprocket undercarriage arrangements are designed for optimized balance and best possible performance in fine grading to heavy dozing applications.

Power train

3126B HEUI meets EPA Tier 2 and EU Stage II emission regulations and offers increased performance levels.

Drive Train

Rugged, durable and reliable components deliver smooth, responsive power and lasting reliability.

Operator Station

State-of-the-art operator station has reduced sound levels, lower cab vibrations and excellent visibility. The (optional) Caterpillar comfort series air suspension seat helps reduce operator fatigue. Cab and air conditioning are standard.


The major component modular design concept moves a generation ahead in simplified service and repair. Customer support is unmatched in the industry.

Total Customer Support
