Cat introduced its MH3026 material handler
Cat’s new next-generation cab features a joystick steering option, eliminating the steering column to dramatically improve forward visibility, legroom and ease of cab access.
Redesigned comfort in a handling cabin
Offering a choice between Deluxe and Premium designs, Cat’s new next-gen cab features a joystick steering option, eliminating the steering column to dramatically improve forward visibility, legroom and ease of access to the cabin. Making it even easier to get in and out of the cab, the left console tilts upwards. All controls are conveniently located in front of and within reach of the operator to avoid unnecessary movement.
A larger 254 mm (10 inch) high-resolution touchscreen with scroll wheel provides easy navigation through intuitive operator controls. In addition, different machine operators can store their specific joystick and preferred feed mode settings, and the machine automatically recalls the settings based on operator ID. The MH3026 offers a maximum cab height of 18’10 ”(5,750mm) to improve visibility of loading and material handling.
Superior serviceability included on the new MH3026
Standard Product Link captures critical operating data such as location, hours, fuel consumption, productivity, downtime, maintenance alerts and error codes, which can be viewed remotely and monitoring to improve the efficiency of fleet management.
Lasting 50% longer than previous models, the new hydraulic oil filter improves filtration and increases change intervals to 3000 hours of operation. New anti-drain valves keep hydraulic oil clean during filter replacement. All engine filters feature a coordinated replacement interval of 1,000 hours of operation, and the new air intake filter with pre-filter lasts up to 1,000 hours to reduce maintenance requirements.
Plus, operators can easily track filter life and maintenance intervals on the high-resolution in-cab monitor. Eliminating the need for operator interaction, the high-efficiency cooling fan features a standard auto-reverse function to keep cores clean, maximizing machine uptime. An optional vibrating cooling screen activates during reverse fan operation to further enhance dust and debris removal.
