New Holland Construction’s venture into mini track loaders is brand new. Launched in late 2023, the company’s C314 mini track loader marks its official entry into this market. The one model focuses on offering compact size, maneuverability and versatility for confined spaces. By entering the mini track loader market, New Holland caters to a new customer segment with specific needs for compact and maneuverable equipment that can lift, load and perform a diverse set of tasks on any surface. Overall, the mini track loader strategically fills a gap in the New Holland Construction product portfolio, expanding market reach and showcasing New Holland’s commitment to innovation and technological advancement.

New Holland currently offers one mini track loader — the C314 mini track loader. The C314 is tailored to meet the demands of landscape and general contractors across North America. The innovative lightweight stand-on machine is purpose-built for maneuverability across diverse jobsites and is capable of seamlessly handling an extensive list of tasks, including loading, dumping and drilling.

What makes the C314 mini track loader unique is that it allows operators to adapt to the unique demands of each project. Its utility spans a wide spectrum of jobs, from intricately paving patios and walkways to managing vegetation debris, as well as tackling light-duty construction projects like erecting foundations and decks. Whatever the job or task, the C314 mini track loader is up for it.

The machine is compatible with New Holland Construction’s suite of 29 attachments due to its auxiliary flow rate of 15 gpm. Its Common Industry Interface and 14-pin electric multifunction control provide hookup versatility with new and older attachments, including augers, trenchers, grapple buckets, rakes and more. With an appropriate rated operating capacity of 1,000-lbs (at 35 percent of tipping load) and 35 in. of working space, operators can efficiently tackle mild structural projects. These encompass tasks like laying footings for modest structures, handling fence line work and executing irrigation or drainage projects. This loader also boasts an optimal dump height of 61 in. for seamless loading.

One of the standout features of the C314 mini track loader is its unique operator positioning, as the operator is placed in closer proximity to the drive and motor. This innovative arrangement enhances machine control, especially considering its stand-on configuration. Operators will also experience elevated stability, thanks to being situated closer to the core of the machine. Several other features have been added to enhance the operator environment of the C314 mini track loader, including hydraulic pilot joystick control and loader and ground drive control lockout. To improve overall comfort, the machine comes equipped with a cushioned platform, hand throttle and grab handles.
