The Cat MH3022 and Cat MH3024 material handlers are purpose-built machines for the waste and scrap metal markets.
The Next Generation Caterpillar material handlers are powered by the Cat C4.4 engine, capable of operating on up to B20 biodiesel. Operators can choose between Power and Eco power modes to match power requirements to the task at hand, which may lower fuel use by up to 10 percent.
The footprint of the Cat MH3022 is 12 percent wider than its predecessor, and the Cat MH3024 has up to 7 percent greater swing torque to move more material faster. Heavy lift mode for both models boosts lifting capacities, and SmartBoom allows the boom to freely travel up and down without using pump flow.
Cat MH3022, Cat MH3024 technologies
Standard technologies on the Cat MH3022 and Cat MH3024 include cab avoidance that helps the operator by preventing contact between the attachment and cab. Operator ID requires a PIN code to start the engine, which inhibits the machine from unauthorized operation.
Large tempered glass windows with small pillars on the reengineered cab design enhance all-around visibility and operating safety. Standard right-side and rearview cameras, upgradable to 360-degree vision, display video feed on the large in-cab touchscreen monitor to further enhance work area visibility. Thicker, high-impact and impact-resistant windshields and roof windows meet EN356, P8B and P5A standards.
A ground-level shutoff switch stops all fuel to the engine and shuts down the machine. Preventing reverse oil flow in the event of an unexpected loss of hydraulic pressure, standard boom and stick lowering check valves keep the front linkage securely in place. All daily maintenance points are quickly accessed from ground level, while a new service platform with steps provides easy, safe and quick access to the upper service area.
A 10-inch high-resolution touchscreen monitor with jog-dial offers easy navigation of the intuitive operator controls. Different machine operators can store their specific joystick and preferred power mode settings, and the machine automatically recalls the settings based on the Operator ID. Both models offer a maximum cab height of 18 feet 10 inches.
