Caterpillar H140D s Hydraulic Hammer

Caterpillar® introduces Caterpillar H140DS hydraulic hammer, the first of a new generation of work tools for the construction, demolition, mining and aggregates industries. The hammer is built on the strengths of its predecessor model, Caterpillar H140C s, but incorporates many improvements that enhance productivity and extend wear life.

CAT H140D Hydraulic Hammer

Caterpillar H140D s is ideally matched to Cat® 325C and 330C hydraulic excavators. It is also compatible with a Cat 322C or similarly-sized excavator. The hammer measures 103.9 inches from the top plate to the tip of the tool. Its operating weight is 2 350 kg. It can be equipped with up to seven different tools for maximum versatility.

The hammer’s operating cycle has been redesigned to improve performance and simplify service. Impact frequency is 350 to 600 blows per minute - 25 to 30% higher than the previous design. The additional blow energy and frequency translate into faster, more effective material penetration and higher productivity. The new design also contains fewer parts, reducing the time required for machine setup, troubleshooting and hammer service.

The accumulator on Caterpillar H140D s can now be checked and recharged without removing the hammer from the machine, significantly improving uptime. The pressure control valve can also be adjusted without being removed from the hammer power cell.

Caterpillar H140D Hammer

In addition to all the new features, Caterpillar H140D s retains the best attributes of the C-Series hammer. Standard sound suppression improves operator comfort and environmental protection. A heavy-duty suspension system protects the hammer and carrier from recoil forces. A dust seal keeps dirt out of the housing, reducing wear on the power cell and other components. The lower tool bushing uses a slip-fit design for easy installation and can be rotated to double service life.

B-Series improvements for all models
The B-Series machines employ the proven anti-stall system and pilot hydraulic joystick controls that make Caterpillar Multi Terrain Loaders easy to operate. B-Series improvements include a deluxe joystick design that incorporates positive-action buttons to control work tool hydraulic or electrical functions. An ergonomically designed arm bar is rounded and sculpted to provide superior operator comfort, and the redesigned gauge panels are easy to read. The B-Series cab offers a new door option with 25 percent more glass that improves sight lines to the working area. The new door also incorporates a new loader lock out function that prevents loader arm movement when he door is open. A standard convex rearview mirror gives the operator a wider view behind the machine, and the lights are now adjustable 10-degrees up and down as well as side-to-side.

The improved B-Series hydraulic system design reduces the number of potential leak points and improves reliability and cleanliness. A 5-micron spin-on filter keeps hydraulic oil clean, and a high-efficiency hydraulic oil cooler allows the machines to work smoothly in high ambient temperatures.

Caterpillar 247B Multi Terrain Loader

The Caterpillar 247B and 257B Multi Terrain Loaders are compact, rubber-tracked machines designed for exceptional versatility, flotation, traction, stability and ride quality. The Multi Terrain Loaders combine the proven technology of the Cat® Skid Steer Loaders and a suspended track undercarriage. The suspended undercarriage transfers machine weight to the ground through 24 wheeled contact points bearing against 59 inches (1499 mm) of track on ground for very low ground pressure. The undercarriage remains unchanged in the B-Series.

The 247B is the smallest of the Multi Terrain Loaders with an operating capacity of 1,950 pounds (885 kg), when defined as 50 percent of tipping load. The 257B operating capacity is 2,310 pounds (1047 kg) at 50 percent tipping load. Both loaders now use the responsive Cat 3024C T engine, which complies with U.S. EPA Tier 2 emissions regulations. Net power is 57 horsepower (42 kW) in each machine.

Both B-Series models have greater hydraulic system performance than the models they replace. Standard flow is 15.6 gpm (60 L/min) and maximum pressure is 3,355 psi (23 000 kPa). The high flow option available on the 257B boosts flow to 26 gpm (100 L/min) and hydraulic horsepower increases 40 percent for highly productive operation of hydraulically powered work tools.

CAT 247B Multi Terrain Loader

The 247B and 257B offer significantly greater breakout forces than their predecessors for aggressive digging capabilities. Caterpillar 247B has radial lift linkage, and the 257B features vertical lift linkage for improved loading and materials handling capabilities. Maximum pin heights are 112 inches (2862 mm) and 119 inches (3018 mm), respectively.

CAT 301.6C and 301.8C New Mini Hydraulic Excavators

With the introduction of the CAT 301.6C and the CAT 301.8C, Caterpillar has expanded the capabilities and enhanced many aspects of the two smallest excavators in the Cat® line. The C-Series models feature 22 percent more bucket digging force and greater than 10 percent more stick digging force than the previous models. Increased lift capacities add to versatility and flexibility.

CAT 301.8c Mini Excavator

The new models get more work done faster through an engine power increase of about 4 percent-to 18.1 horsepower (13.5 kW) and increased hydraulic flow and pressure. The engine meets US EPA Tier 2 and EU Stage II emissions standards. A new, variable displacement hydraulic pump eliminates stalling and enables the excavators to dig through the toughest conditions. Operating weight of the excavators is 3,792 pounds (1720 kg) when equipped with a cab and 3,548 pounds (1610 kg) with a canopy.

CAT 301 Mini Hydraulic Excavator

The CAT C-Series Mini Excavator cab is large and spacious for an expansive viewing area and good air circulation. For ventilation the cab has a retractable front window that can be stowed easily in the roof space with a gas strut assisted linkage. A suspension seat, console-mounted implement controls and adjustable wrist supports help reduce operator fatigue. Pilot hydraulic implement controls are low effort. The two-speed travel system is controlled by a switch on the dozer lever, which makes speed changes easier while dozing. The machine monitoring system is mounted near the operator's line of sight to ensure that gauges and warning lights can be seen easily...
