Power Train

Perfectly matched power train. From the powerful and fuel-efficient 3116 DIT engine to the durable power shift transmission, all Caterpillar components work together to deliver responsive power when you need it.


Drivetrain components are matched and balanced to deliver exceptional performance and durability.


Mainframe is designed and built for durability using the latest technology in engineering and manufacturing. It provides solid support and perfect alignment for major components.


The elevated sprocket moves the final drives above the work area, isolating them from ground impact for long power train component life.

Operator Station

Ergonomically designed for maximum productivity and comfort. Controls are intuitive, low-effort and easy to reach, viewing area is excellent, instrument panel is easy to read and informative, and storage space has been increased.


Hydraulic load line and boom winches provide excellent speed capability. Counterweight and frame design provides excellent stability while offering increased viewing area.


Major modular components are designed for excellent serviceability and allow fast in-field component exchange.
