Operator Station
Spacious working environment for all day comfort.

Superior Comfort
The ergonomic, automotive style operator station helps you work comfortably and productively all day long. Select the configuration that meets your needs - Canopy, Cab or Cab with air conditioning. Features include:
  • Adjustable air suspension seat (standard)
  • Excellent visibility over the hood
  • Easy-to-read gauge cluster
  • Ample legroom
  • Storage compartments for tools and belongings

Ride Control
The optional Ride Control System smoothes the ride in all conditions, including load and carry, highway roading or simply moving around the job site. The result is increased operator comfort, reduced operator fatigue and improved material retention.

Premium Gauge Cluster
The new gauge cluster provides a digital display of system information such as fluid temperatures, hour meter and operator settings.

Backhoe Controls
Two mechanical control patterns are available; two lever excavator and two lever backhoe. Ergonomic, permanently attached foot pedals control auxiliary functions.

Power Train
Built for performance, power and fuel efficiency.

Cat Engine
The Cat C4.4 ACERT™ engine provides cleaner, quieter operation while delivering superior performance and durability. The engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim and EU Stage IIIB emission requirements. The engine also features:
  • Passive regeneration system requiring no operator interaction
  • Long life diesel particulate filter
  • Improved fuel efficiency

The standard power shuttle transmission provides four speeds forward and reverse. Hydraulically shifted clutches allow on-the-go direction and travel speed shifts.
  • Hydraulic proportional control valves deliver smooth speed and directional shifts.
  • Four Wheel Drive option improves mobility and loader performance in poor underfoot conditions and can be activated on-the-go.
  • Maximum roading speed of 40 km/h (25 mph) improves travel time between job sites.

Brake Mode Selector
Optional brake mode selector switch has three positions: two wheel drive, two wheel drive with all wheel braking and four wheel drive. Two wheel drive with all wheel braking provides better tire life while roading and engages the front axle when brakes are applied for improved braking performance.

Load-sensing system matches power to demand.

Powerful Hydraulic System
The load-sensing, closed center hydraulic system matches pressure and flow to the job demands. Whether you’re in full trenching mode or digging around delicate services, you are in control. In applications such as production trenching where speed is important, the system will provide the flow needed to get the job done quickly and efficiently. New electronic pump torque limiter delivers improved power management and hydraulic performance. The load-sensing hydraulic system also delivers:
  • Better fuel efficiency
  • Quieter operation
  • Reduced wear on components
  • Cooler hydraulic temperatures
  • Full dig and lift forces at any engine speed

Backhoe Performance
Superior digging forces.

The excavator-style boom is built for optimum performance and durability. The curved design provides added clearance when digging over obstacles or loading trucks. The narrow boom enhances the viewing area to the bucket and the trench throughout the operating range. More robust swing casting and double clevis design improves durability and reliability.

Serrated edges on the stick provide improved material clamping for clearing and demolition applications. The optional extendible stick (E-stick) increases reach and dig depth by approximately 1.1 m (3.5 ft).

Thumb mounting provisions are standard on every Cat Backhoe Loader for added machine versatility. Cat hydraulic thumbs are available for increased versatility. Mechanical thumbs are also available through your Cat dealer.

Loader Performance
Strong lift and breakout.

New Loader Arms
New front loader arms deliver more reach, dump height and breakout.

Single Tilt
The standard single tilt loader linkage features strong lift and breakout forces for solid performance in backfilling and truck loading applications with pin-on buckets. The 416F is equipped with either a general purpose or multi-purpose pin-on bucket to meet your specific needs.

The return-to-dig system reduces loading cycle times by bringing the loader bucket back to the dig position with an easy pull of the lever. By the time the loader bucket is at ground level, the bucket is angled correctly for the next load or cut.

Work Tools
Do more jobs with one machine.

Backhoe Work Tools
Increase the versatility of your machine with the large selection of backhoe attachments:
  • Buckets - Standard Duty, Heavy Duty, Heavy Duty Rock, Soil Excavation, Coral and Ditch Cleaning
  • Cold Planers
  • Hammers
  • Augers
  • Rippers
  • Thumbs (mechanical and hydraulic)
  • Vibratory Plate Compactors
  • Quick Couplers

Loader Work Tools
A wide range of loader attachments is available including:
  • General Purpose Bucket
  • Multi Purpose Bucket
  • Side Dump Bucket
  • Light Material Bucket
  • Forks

Diagonal Retention System
Heavy duty bucket teeth are attached with diagonal pins rather than horizontal pins for easy exchange without the use of special tools.

Easy maintenance helps keep your machine working.

Minimize Your Downtime
Convenient service features makes maintenance easy, reducing your downtime:
  • Hinged cooling pack provides easy access
  • Tilt up hood provides easy, convenient access to all engine check points
  • Engine side panels remove easily without the use of tools
  • Cat Product Link system (optional) provides remote reporting of machine location and operating system parameters

Customer Support
Unmatched support makes the difference.
