  • Optimized Z-bar linkage provides high breakout force at ground level along with excellent –0°/+5° parallelism for precise work tool control.
  • Easy-to-load Performance Series Buckets feature a wider mouth and curved side plates that improve material retention (fill factor) and decrease cycle times.
  • On-the-go disc-type front manual differential locks (front and rear fully automatic option).
  • Optional auxiliary counterweight option offers slightly higher payload capability for loose aggregate rehandling.*
*Optional configurations and equipment may vary from region to region and requires conformance to Caterpillar payload policy. Consult your dealer or Caterpillar representative for details.
