Cat® C7 Engine
The Cat C7 engine with ACERT™ technology gives exceptional power and fuel efficiency. Meets Tier 3, Stage IIIA emission requirements. Tier 3 refers to EPA (U.S.) standards. Stage IIIA refers to European standards. Engines include electronic governing, cold mode start strategy, automatic altitude compensation, electronic diagnostics and fault monitoring.Modulated Fan Speed
The engine fan speed control is modulated by the IQAN system based on system temperatures to provide fuel savings and precise temperature control.Hydrostatic Drive System
The forestry designed hydrostatic drive system gives exceptional power, efficiency and controllability unequaled in the industry for consistently high performance in all terrain applications.Exceptional Cooling Capability
Enlarged cooling capacities provide the high heat rejection capability required for long distance hauling and utilizing the high tractive effort capabilities.Tough Suspension
Leading design geared bogies and rigid front axle (6WD) are utilized for superior strength and maximum serviceability.
Solid Working Platform
Caterpillar design and manufacturing techniques assure outstanding durability and service life. The front and rear frame structures are manufactured to stand up in the most demanding forest applications.Oscillation and Articulation
Extreme duty center articulation and oscillation points are designed for long service life. The cast knuckle articulation includes tapered roller bearings and hardened expander center joint pins.
The forwarder loader is designed for hard, demanding work. Decades of experience can be seen in the innovative details, durable structure and reliable technology. Speed and smoothness are combined to get the work done safely, reliably, and without downtime.
Hydraulic Pump Is Powerful, Responsive, Quiet
Designed for continuous, efficient and reliable operation, the forwarders axial piston hydraulic pump meets stringent requirements for noise, efficiency, controllability and durability. High load bearings are designed to ensure excellent reliability and long life. A spring assisted servo piston ensures rapid on-stroke performance, especially in low standby pressure conditions. The rigid casing design ensures that all internal forces are well supported. Hydrostatic swash plate balancing together with a rigid support mechanism enhances the power density and reduces noise emissions.Valves Are Load Sensing, Pressure Compensated
The valve system has proven reliability in forestry applications with its fuel efficient load sensing pressure compensated technology. The valve has been given excellent simultaneous operating characteristics, which enable several machine functions to be operated responsively at the same time, regardless of the sizes of individual loads. Each section is designed specifically for the flow and pressure of the function, therefore optimizing machine functionality and fuel efficiency. Ramped and proportional crane functions saves mechanical wear and tear on boom structures. Steering sensors provide feedback through the IQAN control system to cushion stop points of the cylinders.
Maximum Production, Comfortable Work
Spacious purpose built forestry cab with excellent sight lines to the work area. The forward positioned side posts provide maximum visibility for the loader working range. The ventilation system provides superb air flow for heating and cooling functions. Refined instrumentation and plenty of storage areas allow an uncluttered working environment.State-Of-The-Art Controls
The forwarder utilizes the latest technology with CAN-Bus controlled IQAN, switch panels, and engine control. The IQAN MDL master control has a 165 mm (6.5 in) transflective TFT color display which includes excellent on‑screen diagnostics. Units are configured for English or metric display. Low effort ergonomic joy stick controls provide easy effort control of the loader functions. Loader functions are configurable for SAE or Forestry patterns. Loader control allows input into 3 selectable and adjustable operator interphases, plus a factory default. An automotive style, tuned hydrostatic propel system allows for all types of terrain and load characteristics.
Tilting Hood Provides Easy Access
A forward tilting front hood assembly together with the side tilting cab design provide full access to the engine, hydrostat, and hydraulic components.Better Diagnostics, Grouped Service Points
Simplified service and electronic diagnostics help to increase productivity and machine availability. Grouped lubrication points and lines reduce service times.Easy Fluid Changes
Removable cover plates allow full access for cleaning and service. An electric refill pump to add oil into the hydraulic tank maintains system cleanliness by passing all added oil through the filtering system. A vacuum pump on the hydraulic tank reduces exposure to oil loss during service and repair.
