Caterpillar was cool enough to do two presentations on the Benjamin Media Demo Stage at ICUEE. One of those was on its Cat F2-Series backhoes. Caterpillar is building on its highly successful range of F-Series backhoe loaders with the introduction of the new F2-Series range of machines — 427F2, 428F2, 432F2, 434F2 and 444F2. The new models feature an all-new operator’s environment and engine technology that enhances machine performance and saves fuel. The cab has been restyled for a more modern look and has been designed throughout with the operator in mind, including enhanced visibility to the loader attachment when at full height and reduced in-cab sound levels, to 74 dBA. We discussed these cool new backhoes with Roy Brookhart, senior marketing specialist at Caterpillar Inc., above at ICUEE 2015.
