The Caterpillar 365B Material Handler
Tough, dependable, and loaded with performance-improving features.

Operator Station
The work station is designed to be quiet and comfortable for the operator, assuring high productivity during a long work day. The Caterpillar designed electronic control system uses VIDS (Vital Information Display System) as the easy interface between the machine and the operator or the serviceman.

1.9m (6'5") Cab Riser
Cat designed and built cab riser gets your operator to an operating height with excellent visibility for loading or unloading your processing equipment, trucks, rail cars, and barges. Access to the cab is provided by a platform which extends around the riser to allow windshield cleaning. The cab riser can also be manually tilted forward 90 degrees for shipping.

33 kW hydraulically driven generator set
The exclusive Caterpillar genset can power magnets up to 1981mm (78 in.) in diameter. A Caterpillar patented state-of-the-art electronic magnet controller and generator are linked to provide trouble free service. The new controller completely eliminates traditional contactor maintenance and it is supported and warranted through your Cat dealer.

Long Square Undercarriage
Long (L) square undercarriage is standard to maximize stability and lifting capacity. The wide track gauge provides the over-the-side stability required to handle heavy loads and improve productivity, but is also retractable to provide a narrow gauge and reduced shipping width.

365B MH two-piece fronts by Caterpillar
365B MH two-piece fronts by Caterpillar meet your material handling needs with excellent lift performance and working range both in close and at full reach.
  • The material handling front offers a maximum horizontal reach of 18.9m (61'11") from swing center and a maximum vertical pin height of 19.2m (62'10") at 9.7m (31'11") from swing center. This front is an excellent match for a two and a half cubic yard scrap grapple.
  • The cambered boom barge unloading front offers a maximum horizontal reach of 16.9m (55'6") from swing center and a maximum vertical pin height of 14.5m (47'5") at 12.4m (40'8") from swing center. This front is an excellent match for a three cubic yard scrap grapple.

Innovative Cat 3196 ATAAC diesel engine
Delivers large-engine performance from a compact engine design. The six-cylinder 287 kW (385 hp) engine is turbocharged and air-to-air aftercooled. With high horsepower and low displacement, this engine provides excellent fuel economy and durability that can significantly reduce operating costs.

Material Handler Hydraulic Systems
Auxiliary hydraulics are specifically designed to meet your hydraulic attachment requirements. The grapple open/close circuit works with the other implement circuits to deliver smooth, simultaneous, multi-function control. Load sensing PPPC (Proportional Priority Pressure Compensation) system now with Caterpillar developed Hydrac electronic actuation combines a proven system with state-of-the-art electronic control for high efficiency and excellent controllability.

Cooling Cores
Easy clean-out engine and hydraulic cooling cores are provided for operating in debris-laden environments. Ample space between the oil cooler and radiator cores maximizes cooling capacity and allows for simple, efficient cleaning.

Simplified service and maintenance features save you time and money.

Faster, easier maintenance
Means improved uptime and a better value. • Service points are centrally located with easy access to facilitate routine maintenance.

Improved filters and filter locations
Make maintenance easier.
  • Hydraulic capsule filters are mounted outside the tank to prevent spills and system contamination during replacement.
  • Radial seal main air cleaner has double layered filter element for more efficient filtration. No tools are required to change the element. Operator is alerted to clogged condition by a message on VIDS.
  • Pilot hydraulic system filter keeps contaminates away from the pilot system. This system includes a Scheduled Oil Sampling port to simplify sampling.
  • Swing and travel motor case drain filter removes contaminates, keeping them from returning to the tank.

Water Separator
Removes water from fuel even when under pressure and is located in the battery compartment for easy access.

Remote greasing block
On the boom and stick and three grease points for the swing bearing deliver grease to hard to reach locations.

Electronic System Control
Has diagnostic capabilities for Cat Dealers' use. A single connection point allows Electronic Technician (ET) to communicate with all machine controllers. • Dealer service technicians can quickly and easily diagnose and adjust machine components, maximizing uptime.

Complete Customer Support
Cat Dealer services help you operate longer with lower costs.

Cat Dealers
Your Cat Dealer offers a wide range of services that can be set up under a customer support agreement when you purchase your equipment. To help you get the best return on your investment, the dealer will help you choose a plan that can cover everything from machine and attachment selection to replacement.

Make detailed comparisons of the machines you are considering before you buy. What are the job requirements? What production is needed? What is the true cost of lost production? Your Cat Dealer can give you precise answers to these questions.

Look past initial price. Consider the financing options available as well as day-to-day operating costs. This is also the time to look at dealer services that can be included in the cost of the machine to yield lower equipment owning and operating costs over the long run.

What is the cost of preventative maintenance? More and more equipment buyers are planning for effective maintenance before buying equipment. Choose from your dealer's wide range of maintenance services at the time you purchase your machine. Repair option programs guarantee the cost of repairs up front. Diagnostic programs such as Scheduled Oil Sampling and Technical Analysis help you avoid unscheduled repairs.

Repair, rebuild or replace? Your Cat Dealer can help you evaluate the cost involved so you can make the right choice.
