  • Powerful and efficient – Cat® C7.1 ACERT™ engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emission standards. Emissions technology is transparent – no action required from the operator and no stopping for regeneration.
  • Dedicated swing pump allows faster and smoother combined movements.
  • Efficient hydraulic system provides precision and speed, while preserving fuel consumption.
  • Stability and increased lifting capacities over the rear thanks to the new 2.75 m (9'0") MH symmetric undercarriage.


  • Fuel consumption reduced up to 10%*, with no impact on your productivity to lower operating costs.
  • Built-in fuel savers eliminate waste thanks to Auto Engine Speed Control, Engine Idle Shutdown and enhanced Eco Mode.
  • High cooling efficiency axial fan keeps operating temperatures and costs low.
*Versus previous D MH Series.


  • Blue Angel certified with low vibrations and sound levels.
  • Options for specific applications – Thicker high impact and impact resistant windshields fulfill respectively the EN356 P8B and P5A standards. The Advanced Cab Filtration system almost completely eliminates dust entry and air contamination.
  • Great visibility – Large glass areas, LED lights for all working lights and cameras, with both displays split on the same screen.
  • Direct access to the cab is possible with the upperframe swinged thanks to new steps on the front and rear of the undercarriage.

Ease of Operation

  • Enjoy integrated technologies – They act transparently. Features like the Auto Brake and Axle Lock or Automatic Travel lock remove some of the tasks you had to do.
  • Smart technologies – They help boost your productivity while making operation easier; try the optional SmartBoom™ or Joystick steering.
  • Our cabs are unique – It's a cab just for you where everything can be adjusted, from the seat to the work tools controls assignment on joysticks and pedal.


  • Ground level access for routine maintenance items like fuel and engine oil filters or fluid taps.
  • Reduced maintenance – Automatic features like electric lift pump and lubrication system along with long greasing intervals.


  • Various configurations – A wide choice of front linkage lengths including digging, straight and drop nose sticks with a reach up to 10.8 m (35'7") at ground level.
  • Increase your efficiency with the front push blade to clear the ground from materials commonly encountered in industrial applications.
  • Various Waste Handling (WH) Packages options – The “fine mesh” package protects the cooling hood from dust and includes an engine air precleaner. The adjustable reversing fan and vibrating grill of the WH package add more protection.
  • Various attachments to tackle all kinds of jobs, from various grapple types to the 15 kW Cat Generator.

Cat Connect Technology

  • Product Link™ connects owners to their equipment, providing access to machine data such as location, hours, fuel consumption, idle time and events, and diagnostic codes.
