The new models result from Caterpillar's alliance agreement with JLG Industries, reflecting proven JLG designs, says Cat, but incorporating a high content of Caterpillar components, including Cat engines. The new models incorporate pilot-operated, single-joystick control (allowing three simultaneous boom functions), three steering modes and frame leveling.
