  • Long life diesel particulate filter (no service required for 8,000 hours)


Solutions to lower your costs per hour.

Choice of Undercarriage Configurations to Meet Your Application

Track frames are available in extra long (XL) or low ground pressure (LGP) configurations:

  • XL undercarriage for most applications where flotation and side stability are not extreme
  • LGP undercarriage for soft underfoot conditions where additional flotation is required
  • 762 mm (30 in) LGP undercarriage available for extremely soft underfoot conditions

Track Selections

Caterpillar offers a choice of two undercarriages - Sealed and Lubricated Track (SALT) and SystemOne™. Matching the correct undercarriage to the application and soil conditions will deliver the lowest costs per hour.

  • Sealed and Lubricated Track (SALT) Undercarriage - For applications where the track is not bushing limited - May require pin and bushing turn
  • SystemOne™ Undercarriage
- For applications where track is bushing limited - Bushing rotates continuously - Does not require bushing turn - Designed to maximize the life of all undercarriage components

AccuGrade™ Systems

Grade with increased accuracy.

Improve Your Efficiency with AccuGrade

AccuGrade is a fast machine grade control system which enables operators to cut and fill to grade with increased accuracy, minimizing the need for traditional stakes and grade checkers. Caterpillar offers a choice of Laser, GNSS or Universal Total Station solutions:

  • AccuGrade Laser - for two dimensional flat type work
  • AccuGrade GNSS - for three dimensional cut to contour work
  • Universal Total Station - for fine and finish grade applications

New Larger Displays
