Cat launches new M-series handler range

American giant Cat has launched three new handlers, designed specifically for the agricultural sector.

The new M-series models feature a Cat 3.4-litre engine which develops 68hp and runs through a two-speed hydrostatic transmission that allows 35kph road speed and has an integral braking system to help the front axle braking when slowing quickly.

Three models – 906M, 907M and 908M – all have a Z-bar loader linkage and a multi-pump design that allows lifting, extending and turning all at the same time, with hydraulic flow at 120l/min for the smaller loaders while 130l/min for the bigger brother, with adjustable rates for both transmission and hydraulics.

All three loaders meet Tier4 Final emissions standards and come with air conditioning as standard along with joystick control and an adjustable heated suspension seat.

Prices are yet to be announced.
