The all-new 414E IL industrial loader features seat-mounted joystick implement controls, said to be an industry-first and provide greater operator comfort and productivity. With one joystick instead of the traditional four or five levers, Cat says the machine gives the operator full control of all five functions of the three-point tool carrier along with the ability to activate auxiliary hydraulics and work tools. The front loader is the same as the system used on the Caterpillar 416E backhoe-loader, and it can use a 1-, 1.25-, or 1.30-cubic-yard multi-purpose bucket as well as a range of other work tools. Load-sensing hydraulics provide power when and where it is needed.
