Caterpillar Backhoe Loaders

March 7, 2020

Caterpillar has replaced F2 Series backhoe loaders with new models using the nomenclature without suffixes. Models 415, 416, 420, 420 XE, and 430 use a new engine, the Cat C3.6, that is up to 10 percent more fuel efficient. Four wheel drive is now standard, with no 2WD versions available in North America, and the IT version has been eliminated, with all new models able to use an IT coupler.

Dig depths range from 14 feet to 15 feet 2 inches, and horsepower ratings range from 70 to 107.

The Cat C3.6 engine uses selective catalytic reduction (SCR) with diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) and a diesel particulate filter (DPF) for the 416, 420, and 430 models. The 415 backhoe loader requires only the DPF to meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 requirements.

Selectable power management modes on the 420, 420 XE, and 430 models offer the choice of Standard Mode engine performance for increased fuel savings or Standard Plus Mode to boost machine performance by maximizing backhoe implement speeds. These models also feature adjustable auxiliary hydraulic flow on the loader, so the operator can fine-tune machine hydraulics to power attachments like brooms and hydraulic angling snow pushes.

The 420 and 430 models now come standard with powershift transmission and spring-applied, hydraulically released parking brake.

All the backhoe loader have adjustable auxiliary hydraulic flow to the backhoe, so machine hydraulics can be fine-tuned to meet the operating specifications of hammer, thumb, and auger attachments.

A redesigned operator display incorporates analog machine gauges with a color LCD information display that is soft key controlled for simple navigation. Informational icon pop-ups offer quick navigation between operating modes, while full text diagnostic descriptions simplify machine troubleshooting and maintenance.

New seat controls and touchscreen LCD operator display are now standard on the 420 XE. New boom cylinders on the 420 XE offer up to 15 percent more boom lift capability to elevate operating performance. Seat-mounted controls on the 420 XE swivel with the operator to control loader and backhoe functions for more ergonomic and comfortable operation. This arrangement enables Dual Mode for more efficient machine repositioning. Dual Mode also allows the operator to sit at an offset angle while controlling the machine for improved visibility.

Built with single-tilt loader arms, the 420 XE features electronic loader controls that enable selectable parallel lift for increased material retention in loading applications. Programmable loader kickout and return-to-dig is easily set via the LCD operator display with touchscreen control.

Offering remote data monitoring through VisionLink, the latest Cat Product Link comes standard on the upgraded backhoe loaders.
