BENEFITS & FEATURES
Key Features



Performance


Well balanced weight and power make the 903C2 suitable for tasks in agriculture, landscaping, snow, construction, and industrial segments. Optional external counterweights increase lift capacity for demanding jobs. Two loader linkage options, standard and high lift, provide either improved capacity or improved lift height based on the application.

Ease of Operation


Two independent control levers for lift/tilt and auxiliary functions provide excellent bucket feel and implement modulation.

Power Train


Hydrostatic drive line features a 16 km/h (10 mph) travel speed. Axles are available with front and rear diff-lock.

Safety


Reduced engine overhang lends itself to excellent rear and corner visibility, keeping the operator safe and productive to the task at hand. Improved entry/exit step and addition of grab handle to ease getting in and out of the machine.

Serviceability


Fully opening rear hood allows easy access to engine compartment featuring side-by-side coolers and transparent fuel/water separator. Optional engine air pre-cleaner and radiator screen for high debris applications.

Work Tools


Standard Skid Steer Loader coupler and continuous auxiliary hydraulic flow enables the 903C2 to use a large range of Cat Skid Steer Loader hydro mechanical work tools. Change tools multiple times during the day? The optional electric Skid Steer Loader style coupler makes the task easier and quicker!
