A new forwarder product offering from Caterpillar Forest Products, the 584 and 584HD models have 18- and 20-metric-ton capacities, respectively. Both models come in an eight-wheel-drive configuration; the 584 has a six-wheel-drive option. A hydrostatic propel system provides maximum power on grade through a wide engine rpm and ground speed range. The forwarders are powered by Cat C7 ACERT engines delivering about 275 gross horsepower at 1,800 rpm. The lug curve of the engine provides "excellent" torque in the 1,400-1,600 rpm range for increased fuel efficiency, says Caterpillar.
The new Cat® C Series articulated dump trucks—725C, 730C, and 730C EJ ejector—feature new engines with more power, advanced transmission control, enhanced operator amenities, new serviceability features, and for the 730C and 730C EJ models, automatic traction control.
The Cat 586C Site Prep Tractor, says Caterpillar, is a multi-purpose, heavy-duty machine designed to handle demanding attachments, such as mulchers and brush cutters.
