Caterpillar has refined the design of its skid steer and compact track load- ers and designated the line B-Series 3. Models include 216B3, 226B3, 236B3, 242B3 and 252B3 skid steers and 247B3 and 257B3 compact track loaders. A redesigned dead-engine lower valve provides an easier-to-use, more-positive means of lowering the lift arms if the machine should run out of fuel or stall with the arms raised. A new lever-action handle acts di- rectly on the hydraulic relief valve. A new single ECM has been moved from the lower frame to the back of the cab and provides easier access to electrical service points as well as simplified wiring and a reduction in the number of connections. Cat added power to the 242B3 skid steer and 257B3 compact track loader with a 71-horsepower engine, which in- creases net power by 25 percent, and a hydraulic system with about 40 percent more standard flow, at 22 gpm.
The SV340 vertical-lift skid steer loader has a rated operating capacity (ROC) of 3,400 pounds.
The L234 replaces the L230 and is the company’s most powerful skid steer loader.
Cat F Series wheeled excavators include models M314F, M316F, M318F, M320F, and M322F.
The Cat 992K wheel loader matches up with the Cat 775 and Cat 777 haul trucks with a bucket capacity ranging from 14 to 16 cubic yards.
