With a rated operating capacity of 3,250 pounds, the 272C is the largest-capacity skid-steer loader ever produced by Caterpillar. Incorporating a new design from the ground up, including a single-piece frame, the C-Series loader offers standard features and options derived from the changing needs of compact-equipment operators. Fully adjustable, seat-mounted joystick controls keep the operator in command in the roughest of underfoot conditions. An optional sealed and pressurized cab is an industry first for the skid-steer market. The 90-horsepower 272C is one of two vertical-lift and one of four C-Series skid-steers introduced by Caterpillar. Estimated base list price: $37,250 to $46,250.
