Sometimes, there are jobs that require operating where using your larger equipment is not advised (or even possible). Because of their small frame size and relative versatility, CAT backhoes deliver the productivity and power and precise handling you need while lowering your machine operating costs.
Be it for landscaping; demolitions and excavations; breaking asphalt and paving; and just general construction, CAT Backhoe Loaders provide for excellent trenching, material handling, digging, trenching, and back-filling.
Be it the 416-F, 420-F, 420-F IT, 430-F, or 430-F IT, you can find a CAT Backhoe Loader for your needs.
CAT has an interesting maintenance package. As they see it, according to their website, “backhoe loaders were designed as a system, which means every part plays a critical role. It’s why we’ve made it easier to maintain your machine.”
They suggest putting your maintenance on a schedule which they provide, along with 403 maintenance kits for your ordering convenience. These kits cover hydraulic systems, drive-train and engine maintenance, ensuring against lost dollars due to minor to major repairs; lowered production efficiency; greater fuel use; and increased wear and tear on component parts.
Maintaining your hydraulic system is critical because, for example, running a hydraulic system at 80% is the equivalent of four days worth of work at a five-day cost. They also show an example which suggests that by using a ½ gallon of diesel fuel in your backhoe loader for $1,000 hours for five years, at $4.00 per gallon, for five years, utilizing proper maintenance kits will save you $10,000.
The latest in the CAT Backhoe Loaders is the F2 series mentioned above. Tier IV emission standards are met by the line, which has a new design in its operator station, offering an optional security system keypad and other productivity enhancements.
The new CAT F2 Backhoe Loader improves your fuel efficiency, with engines capable of running on B20 grade biofuel when approved additives are used. It also has an Economy Mode which, for trenching applications, 430F2 provides 14-17% greater fuel efficiency on the 430F2 than Normal Mode, whereas in truck loading applications, the 430F2 is 10-19% more fuel-efficient.
For real time fleet management, the optional Product LinkTM remote monitoring telematics service empowers operators with the data and information needed for greater productivity and profitability. It utilizes available technology to transmit information via cell and satellite to its corresponding web-based application, VisionLink. It gathers detailed information on fuel usage and idle times, for maintenance purposes while providing machine location data to stay on budget.
The F2 Backhoe Loader’s lock up torque converter provides 23 percent more fuel-efficient roading than 430F with autoshift transmission.
