Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020: New equipment and advanced technologies from Caterpillar
More than 30 Cat machines on display at the show including nine new product introductions
THE Caterpillar CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 experience will include more than 30 Cat machines, including nine new product introductions.
As successor to the Cat D5K2, Caterpillar say the new Cat D3 dozer continues to set the standard for small dozer grading accuracy and efficiency. The operator cab delivers greater visibility, while enhanced controls deliver easier, intuitive finish grading. Powertrain advancements improve fuel efficiency by up to 10% over previous models.
Meanwhile, the new Cat 150 AWD motor-grader (pictured) features all-wheel drive that assists with traction and manoeuvring, allowing the machine to work in any environment. Eco mode delivers up to 10% greater fuel efficiency without productivity loss, whilst the new mastless 3D Cat Grade control system unleashes the potential of the moldboard to give it full range of motion.
Visitors to the show will also experience the new 725 articulated truck offerings. New cab features include assisted hoist, automatic retarder control and advanced automatic traction control, which improve operator experience and reduce operator actions. Performance improvements include up to a 9% increase in speed on grades, an 8% improvement in acceleration and a 7% increase in productivity.
Visitors will also be the first to see Caterpillar’s latest remote-control offering, an enhanced operating station equipped with the Command Vision System, with expanded capability to operate multiple pieces of equipment from a single remote station. The Cat Command remote control system also offers a portable console, designed for line-of-sight use, which will also be showcased in the exhibit.
Also, making its North American trade show debut from Cat paving products, Command for Compaction automates the compaction process to increase quality. Featuring an intuitive interface for simple operation, Command for Compaction eliminates skill gaps to deliver up to 60% better coverage with consistent and precise overlap, constant speed and correct pass count.
