Cat Intermat intros include wheel loaders, backhoes, rollers

|  April 13, 2012 |

Cat will display more than 40 machines at Intermat, 20 of which will be seen for the first time in Europe.

Wheel loader improvements include the 966K CVT (constant velocity transmission) wheel loader. The new transmission doesn’t require a torque converter or gear shifting, making for easier operation and fuel savings through efficiency.

• Cat is also showing its new F Series backhoes, the 428F and 432F, which feature a new loader linkage with greater lift and dump heights and increased lift capacity.

• A Caterpillar Paving pavilion will highlight a tandem vibratory roller line with articulated and drum steer configurations, the AP1055E paver (the company’s largest to date), the B Series vibratory soil compactor line, and a pneumatic roller, the CW34.
