Integrated Toolcarrier

Caterpillar has improved the IT38G Series II Integrated Toolcarrier to enhance versatility and productivity, and provide excellent visibility in demanding jobsite requirements. The medium-wheel loader-based machine has been redesigned with the operator in mind, providing excellent lines of sight to the quick coupler and work tools, as well as increasing the number of work tools available for the machine.The machine also maintains key features that make it best in class, including 180 net horsepower (134 kW), parallel lift linkages and integral quick couplers to handle a wide range of material handling and digging tasks.

Additionally, Caterpillar has expanded the line of buckets offered for the IT38G II. The range of buckets now available spans sizes of 2.75 cu yd to 3.5 cu yd (2.2 cu m to 2.8 cu m), as compared to the previous offering of 3 cu yd to 3.5 cu yd. A broader selection of buckets enables customers to closely match material density and bucket size for optimum productivity. In addition to buckets, Caterpillar continues to offer a full range of work tools for the versatile toolcarrier. Strategic structural changes have increased full turn static tipping load by 14% to 19,106 lb (8665 kg). The effects are improved stability and greater work capabilities without reducing responsiveness.
