The vertical-lift 272D2 skid steer, 297D2 multiterrain, and 299D2 compact track loaders (and the XHP versions) have been upgraded to include the Advanced Display as standard equipment and enhanced airflow debris control. All meet Tier 4-Final with a 98-horsepower Cat C3.8 engine (110 horsepower in XHP models) using SCR technology.

The Advanced Display stores up to 50 operator security codes that allow each operator to adjust the machine to suit individual operating preferences. Electronic instrumentation includes fuel level, DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) level, hydraulic and engine coolant temperatures, and tachometer. The XHP models have a standard rearview camera, which is optional on the other models. 

Rated operating capacities for the 272D2, 297D2, and 299D2 have been increased to 3,400; 4,700; and 4,600 pounds, respectively. ROC for the XHP models has stayed the same, although now they do not require counterweights. Bolt-on counterweights are available for all six units if greater ROC is desired.

Sealing around the rear engine door, rear bumper, cooling package grill, and cab/cooling package provides better protection against material ingestion where there is airborne debris. An optional reversing fan, with both an automatic and momentary purge capability, aids in the removal of material from the rear door intake screen. The video below explains how air flow is directed in order to help cool the exhaust.
