Controllability is one of the main attributes of Cat excavators, and one of the key contributors to this is the main control valve. The valve opens slowly when your range of joystick lever movement is small and opens rapidly when movement is high. It puts flow where you need it when you need it, which leads to smoother operation and levelling and lower fuel consumption.
- Heavy lift mode increases machine system pressure to improve lift and reduces engine speed and pump flow in order to improve controllability.
- SmartBoom™ technology reduces stress and vibrations transmitted to the structures. Scraping rock and finishing work is easy and fast. SmartBoom simplifies the task and allows the operator to fully concentrate on the stick and bucket, while boom freely goes up and down without using pump flow.
