Caterpillar is increasing the number of options for customers with the launch of a new model to its backhoe loader range.
The 426F2 Backhoe Loader with side shift frame allows for the option of a base specification model or a configured machine depending on budget and operational needs.
Both a 2- and 4-wheel drive model is available, and customers can choose between backhoe loader or excavator control pattern as well as various cab climate control packages and personalized Product Link technologies.
A Cat spokesman said, “The new machine adds to the F2 Series Backhoe Loader family and features an all-new cab design that provides a comfortable and operator-friendly environment with excellent visibility.
“High pump oil flow delivers excellent hydraulic performance at the operator’s fingertips, and load-sensing hydraulics enable this new Cat machine to efficiently tackle a variety of applications ranging from loading and carrying to full-depth trenching.”
Delivering the power and productivity needed for high performance jobs, the new 426F2 backhoe loader can be equipped with up to a 1.05 m3 loader bucket offering a 7,012kg tipping load at breakout point. Its standard 4.3-m-long standard excavator-style stick delivers a 4.7-m maximum digging depth and 4.03-m loading height.
