We know that when it comes to material handling equipment, your success depends on high productivity and dependable performance. The MH3024 offers a great compromise between the agility, versatility and performance of a wheeled excavator and the stability, efficiency and power needed to cope with harsh environments and applications of industrial, scrap, waste recycling and bulk handling operations, which call for safe, quality and reliable products, while generating a low operating cost to the owner. The new MH3024 is here to help you take on the wide variety of challenges you face every day, more easily and with more pleasure. Commitment from the Ground Up.

Fuel Efficiency and Reduced Exhaust Emissions
Transparent Technologies and Longer Service Intervals
- The new Eco Modes, Auto Engine Speed Control and Engine Idle Shutdown help further reduce your overall fuel consumption.
- Product Link™ allows remote monitoring of the machine and helps improve overall efficiency.
- You Cat dealer can help extend service intervals, meaning fewer fluids and disposals, all adding up to lower costs.
Biodiesel and Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil
- The MH3024 has the flexibility of running on either ultra-low-sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel with 15 ppm of sulfur or less or biodiesel (up to B20) fuel blended with ULSD.
- Cat BIO HYDO™ Advanced HEES™ reduces the impact on the environment.
Cat Certified Used
The Power and Performance You Need – Constant Power Strategy
The Power and Performance You Need – A Transparent Emission Solution That Works.
- Transparent: no operator intervention
- Durable: fit for life Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
- Efficient: no work interruption, even in case of extended idling time
- Simple: minimum maintenance. Longitudinal engine installation, which further simplifies maintenance.
The Power and Performance You Need – Biodiesel Not a Problem
The Power and Performance You Need – Proven Technology
- Automatic Engine Speed Control: lowers engine speed when it is not needed.
- NEW Engine Idle Shutdown (when activated): turns the engine off when it’s been idling for more than a pre-set amount of time.
- NEW Cooling System: variable speed and on-demand fan optimizing consumption.
- NEW enhanced Eco Mode: reduces engine speed while delivering the same power.
- Automatic shift to Travel Mode when you start riding: optimizes driveline performance while preserving fuel.
Efficient Design, Smart and Fast
- Simple Design – The new hydraulic valve compartment and routings offer a simple and clean design to help ensure durability. Everything is reachable from ground level.
- Smart Main Hydraulics – The system allows reducing the load on the engine when not needed, which translates into lower fuel consumption.
- Dedicated Swing Pump – A closed hydraulic circuit is dedicated to the swing only. Having two separate pumps, one for the swing and the second for the other functions allows faster and smoother combined movements.
Control Like No Other
- Electronic Pump Control – Controllability is one of the main attributes of the MH3024, and one of the key contributors to this is the Electronic Pump Control (EPC) that’s designed to improve response time and precision. It puts flow exactly where you need it, when you need it, which means a much smoother operation and greater efficiency.
- Adjustable Hydraulic Sensitivity – Allows you to adjust the aggressiveness of the machine according to the application.
- Stick Regeneration Circuit – Increases efficiency and helps enhance controllability for higher productivity.
Well Balanced Cooling Package
High Visibility – 2400 mm (94.5 in) Elevated Cab
- Stable – Wide lift arms, deep box-sectioned design, strong top and bottom links and retractable hydraulic cylinders used to raise the cab for greater stability.
- Fast – Two heavy-duty hydraulic cylinders provide quick and controlled up and down travel.
- Comfortable – The parallelogram design of the linkage allows the cab to remain level at all ranges of motion. Cab movement is also slowed as it reaches the end of the riser stroke, with no sudden start/stop effect.
- Safe – The cab can be lowered using either a lever inside the cab or one on the frame at ground level in the event of a hydraulic malfunction.
- Material Handling – The Material Handling undercarriage with four welded outriggers is ideal when extra stability is needed.
- Material Handling with Dozer Blade – An optional expansion to the Material Handling Undercarriage includes an additional dozer blade mounted ahead of the front stabilizers to be used to push material commonly encountered in waste and millyard applications.
- The standard undercarriage allows for different kinds of stabilizers and blades to be attached either to the front or to the rear.
Advanced Disc Brake System
Joystick Steering (Optional)
Swing and Auto Travel Lock
- Just press a button,
- Align the upper to the lower frame,
- Enjoy the ride: a green indicator confirms the swing and the implements have been automatically locked.
Integrated Pin Code
- The pin code is integrated into the monitor (standard)
- Entering the right code allows the engine to start
- Choose the very speed you wish
- Press the quick access button on the monitor
- Enjoy the ride
Legacy from the Renowned Cat Wheeled Material Handlers
- Frequently used switches are centralized, kept to the minimum and ideally located close to the joysticks.
- Storage compartments are useful … when well designed. The lunch box provides sufficient room to store a hard hat. Several other areas include drink, phone, or key holders.
Comfortable Seat Options
Safety – Not Optional
