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.
