Caterpillar 279C/289C/299C Compact Track Loaders
August 28, 2008

The Caterpillar 279C, 289C and 299C compact rubber-track loaders feature durable, steel embedded track and steel undercarriage components for maximum life in aggressive applications. The new tracked machines deliver solid traction and reduced wear on sites with sticky, rocky soils. The compact track loaders combine a freshly engineered suspension-type undercarriage, designed and built by Caterpillar, with the chassis of their multi terrain loader counterparts, the 277C, 287C and 297C. The fully suspended undercarriage employs four independent torsion axles for a superior ride and excellent bucket load retention. Class leading track-on-ground of almost 70 inches (1767 mm) provides good flotation and traction, low ground pressure and long track life.All three models feature two-speed drive systems, with a maximum speed of 8.5 miles per hour, for fast movement around large sites.
