The new Cat 415F2 Industrial Loader Tractor combines the basic design of the Cat 415F2 backhoe with purpose-built components designed specifically for industrial-loader applications.
Operator station and controls
The new model is available in canopy or cab configurations, standard 5-function rear valve and 3-function loader valve, dual location differential lock, low-effort pilot-type controls for the box blade scraper, and sealed storage compartment. An available security key pad disables the engine, transmission, and hydraulic systems at machine start-up until a pass-code is entered (25 pass-code capacity). Canopy models are fitted with a roof cap that reduces heat in the operator's station, while allowing good sight line to the loader. Cab models feature an HVAC system with recirculation, wide-coverage pantograph wipers with great visibility and wide opening windows for ventilation. This machine also features either the cellular- or satellite-based Product Link telematics system. The standard three-function loader valve uses mechanical controls, with single-lever control for models with a general-purpose (GP) bucket and two-lever control for models with a multi-purpose (MP) bucket (available with fold-over forks).
Power train and structures
The 415F2 Industrial Loader uses a Cat C3.4B engine, rated at 72 net peak horsepower, that meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emissions standards with an under-hood diesel particulate filter and diesel oxidation catalyst; diesel exhaust fluid is not required. The new model is equipped with a standard shift, four-speed transmission with a quick-reversing, power-shuttle feature. Also standard is a four-wheel-drive system (mechanical front drive) that can be used in two-wheel drive with four-wheel braking, which reduces tire wear and drivetrain wear. Brakes are wet multi-disc. Standard tires are 12 50/80-18 in the front and 16.9-24 rear.
