Not only do the new C-Series skid-steer loaders from Caterpillar deliver new machine control standards, they actually extend up the product line itself. With a rated operating capacity of 3,250 pounds, the vertical-lift 272C is the largest-capacity skid-steer loader Caterpillar has ever produced. Each of the 246C, 256C, 262C and 272C models boasts such machine-control features as electro-hydraulic joystick control of the hydrostatic drive system and electronic torque management. Operator comfort, too, reaches new levels with an optional sealed, pressurized cab and air suspension seat. Additional options such as high-flow XPS hydraulics expand versatility and enable customers to equip their C-Series skid-steers specifically for the type of work they do.
