Caterpillar’s Cat B-Series 3 loaders—SSL models 216B3, 226B3, 236B3, 242B3, 252B3 and MTL models 247B3 and 257B3—incorporate design refinements that make them more capable, more reliable, safer and easier to operate. In addition, a larger engine and more powerful hydraulics for the 242B3 and 257B3 make these models “power-dense” machines that maintain a nimble size and excellent maneuverability. Specific design refinements for all B-Series 3 models include a redesigned “dead-engine lower valve,” single electronic control module (ECM), which is relocated for improved access and reliability, plus new ECM-enabled features. A heavy-duty battery (880 CCA) is now standard equipment on larger models, and a headliner is added to the optional Comfort Package.
