10 REASONS TO CHOOSE CAT® D SERIES LOADERS OVER THE COMPETITION
If you are considering purchasing compact construction equipment, you want to be knowledgeable about your options.
1. JOYSTICK CONTROLS
The Cat ergonomic low-effort joystick controls come STANDARD and even a novice operator can work efficiently. Competitors will charge you approximately $2,500 for this option.
The STANDARD control monitor provides an anti-theft security system to help prevent unwanted operation. With the advanced display panel, the security system is capable of programming up to 50 operator/security codes to store and recall each operator’s
preferences and working parameters. The competition has no security system standard. The competition’s optional anti-theft system is limited to only 5 codes.
3. SUSPENDED UNDERCARRIAGE
The competition hard mounts their undercarriage to the chassis resulting in a rough ride and accelerated track wear. The STANDARD suspended undercarriage isolates the operator and machine chassis from shock and vibration generated by rough terrain while conforming to ground conditions for maximum traction and flotation. This means you get a smooth ride,
superior load retention, and longer track life.
4. TWO SPEED
STANDARD 2-speed on 259D through 299D2 XHP CTL models allow you to complete your job sooner. The competition offers a two-speed option for $2,000. However, without a suspended undercarriage to go with it, the ride can be rough.
5. OPERATOR ENVIRONMENT
Our STANDARD is a modular one-piece sealed and pressurized cab for a clean, quiet working environment. The competition uses a two piece cab design that relies on foam seals to join the two sections. Caterpillar offers a deluxe High Back, Heated Air Suspension Seat with Lumbar Adjustment. The competition only offers Optional Air Suspension Seat, which does not include High Back, Heat or Lumbar Support.
6. VISIBILITY / SIGHT LINES
Our STANDARD for worksite visibility means increased viewable area around the machine. A standard convex rearview mirror gives the operator a panoramic view of the jobsite. The sleek lift arm design provides a narrow profile that delivers excellent sight lines to the wheels/tracks and the surrounding work area. An optional integrated rearview camera further enhances the rearward field of vision for increased worksite visibility. The competition’s bulky lift arm design obstructs visibility to the tracks. The rearview mirror is not standard and an optional rearview camera is only offered on a few, select models.
7. SERVICE ACCESS
Time is money and ease of access is STANDARD on Cat machines. Grouped service points and easy, ground level access allow you to perform daily/routine maintenance without using tools. This helps keep your machine running at optimal efficiency, reducing down time and increasing productivity. To gain full service access to the competition, multiple panels and fasteners must be removed, and in some instances lift arms raised, all of which can be a hassle and more time consuming.
8. VERTICAL LIFT AND REACH
With Cat Vertical Lift machines both heavy lifting and reach come STANDARD. Get more reach where you need it most (truck bed height) to get the job done.
9. TIER 4 EMISSIONS
Patented mixing of exhaust with cooling fan airflow reduces hot temperatures, allows DPF regeneration to occur safely while working, and eliminates hazard to people, animals, or other flammable objects. For the competition, the operator is advised to disable DPF regeneration or relocate the machine away from people and work area during a DPF cleaning cycle due to potentially hazardous exhaust temperatures.
