The new Cat MH3022 and MH3024 are the smallest models in the new Caterpillar line of wheeled material handlers in the greater-than-20-ton size class.
Fuel Efficiency and Sustainability
The engine meets US EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emission standards and features refinements that yield added torque and faster response to changes in load. The engine now integrates an emissions aftertreatment system, which requires no attention other than periodically replenishing the diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank.
Comfort and Safety
Entering and exiting the cabin is easier with a redesigned three access step and handrail. A fourth step is integrated directly into the skirt of the upper carriage. Inside the cabin, the left-hand console tilts to facilitate entering and leaving the seat and a steering wheel which is height adjustable. The MH3022 and MH3024 also incorporate a PIN-code anti-theft system that remembers the last code entered before engine shutdown and allows that code to remain active for a period of time.
Easy to operate, maintain and service
An automatic system when enabled senses machine parameters and locks the axle-oscillation function and sets the service brakes, readying the machine to work. Brake and axle lock are automatically released when the operator presses the travel pedal again. Also, a new travel-lock system, engaged via the switch panel, combines implement-stop and swing-lock functions.
The engine is mounted with the cooling package forward of the engine resulting in easy, ground-level access to routine maintenance points. Electrical and hydraulic components are now grouped in specific areas for ease of service, and an automatic centralized greasing device is standard.
