The new Cat 272D Skid-Steer Loader and 299D Compact Track Loader, replacing their C Series predecessors, are now joined by a pair of high-performance counterparts, the 272D XHP and 299D XHP, which are the largest, most powerful Skid-Steer and Compact Track Loaders Caterpillar has ever built.
The new Cat 272D Skid-Steer Loader and 299D Compact Track Loader, replacing their C Series predecessors, are now joined by a pair of high-performance counterparts, the 272D XHP and 299D XHP, which are the largest, most powerful Skid-Steer and Compact Track Loaders Caterpillar has ever built. The new D Series models build on the premium features, solid performance, quality and durability of the C Series by adding a more powerful engine, the Cat C3.8, which meets Stage IIIB and Tier 4 Interim emissions standards, and by incorporating design features that further enhance lifting, digging and work-tool performance.
The electronically controlled Cat C3.8 engine, designed with a high-pressure common-rail fuel system for operating efficiency, is equipped with the Cat NOx Reduction System and a diesel particulate filter for emissions control. Net-horsepower increases for the new D Series models range from 5 to 18 percent and flywheel torque is increased from 13 to 27 percent. The new engine uses a redesigned air-intake flow path for added efficiency, and a dealer-installed pre-cleaner kit is available for dusty, dirty applications.

Big upgrade for small JCB machine
JCB has upgraded its 1CX product – the smallest member of its world-leading backhoe loader family – with a new appearance, longer loader arms, an extending dipper option, servo controls and a power management system.
The 1CX has been updated with the latest JCB corporate styling, including a revised cab roof trim, improved working lights and sturdy electrical switchgear. The new optional loader arms are 4 inches longer to provide easier loading of site dump trucks.
At the rear, an extending dipper option adds up to 20 inches to the digging envelope, taking maximum dig depth to 10 feet. This allows easier load over of trucks, with the backhoe easily able to reach the center of the dump truck.
A new Power Management System (PMS) improves performance, reducing engine lug down as the machine starts to dig and increasing power when driving into a pile with the front bucket.
