The 216B3 steer skid cat carries a number of features that enable it to score very highly, especially on urban construction projects. Being hydrostatic, all the 216B3’s wheels get power and this gives it the traction to handle ramps between floors. The 216B3 also scores over forklifts with which it can work on both flat and uneven soil surfaces.
Superior comfort to keep you productive throughout the work day.
All Day Comfort
Comfort and ease of operation have been built into every nook and cranny of the operator station. A wide, spacious interior, an uncluttered floor and excellent head, shoulder and leg room, an adjustable seat and easy−use controls ensure a comfortable work environment, low fatigue and high productivity.
Low Effort Joystick Controls
Get precise control with minimal effort thanks to the ergonomic, pilot hydraulic controls. While the right joystick controls loader rise, lower and tilt functions, the left joystick controls the forward and reverse travel speed plus direction.
Additional auxiliary controls with fingertip control of many work tool functions will be provided by the optional deluxe joysticks. This also includes proportional work tool hydraulics and electrical work tools. The basic and deluxe joystick functions also include one−touch continuous auxiliary hydraulic flow and momentary auxiliary hydraulic flow.
Get an exceptional view of the work tools via the wide cab openings. The sloped angle of the engine compartment allows excellent visibility to the rear of the machine. And, the standard rear view mirror provides the operator with a panaromic view of the machines sides and rear. The side windows can be easily removed for cleaning. Yes, we do think of everything!
Additional Features for Maximum Comfort
Get more done through the following additional features:
Optional air conditioner / heater for greater comfort in extreme conditions.
Instrument panels with high readability.
Ergonomically designed contoured and padded armbar for easy and comfortable operation.
Standard floor mat with footrest provides non−slip surface and can be easily removed for cleaning.
Exceptional power, lift and breakout for all your needs.
High Performance Hydraulic System
High power, reliability and durability are part of this machine’ DNA! Apart from providing power to the wheels, this system also powers the auxiliary circuit that drives the work tools, provides the loader lift and tilt functions and drives the engine cooling fan. The hydraulic pumps are driven directly off the engine for maximum hydraulic performance and reliability : no belts are used. This system also features:
Standard auxiliary hydraulics to power work tools that are available through quick connect hydraulic couplings rigidly mounted to the loader arm.
Cat ToughGuard™ hoses for increased reliability and durability.
High Efficiency Cooling System
Cooling capacity is maximized through the use of a side−by−side cooling package and a hydraulically driven cooling fan.
The efficient, hydraulically driven cooling fan provides cooling even when the machine is under load.
High−efficiency, hydraulic oil cooler lets the machine work longer and harder in higher ambient temperatures, even with continuous work tool usage.
Optional variable speed demand fan provides improved fuel efficiency, increased machine performance, reduced sound levels and improved cold weather performance.
Proof that fuel efficiency and agressive performance need not be mutually exclusive!
The high performance power train provides high engine horsepower and torque. The B−Series 3 machines feature rugged, reliable Cat engines that meet both U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim and EU Stage IIIA emissions requirements.
Hand and Foot Throttles
Hand and foot throttles allow the operator to match engine speed to the task. The foot throttle lets the operator vary engine speed while minimizing fuel consumption for other tasks including load and carry, grading, truck loading and dozing. The hand throttle is ideal for jobs requiring constant engine speed such as trenching, cold planing or snow blowing.
The load sensing anti−stall system maximizes machine power at all times by matching the engine torque with the operational requirements of the hystat and implement systems. It also prevents the engine from stalling even during part throttle operation, keeping productivity high and fuel consumption low.
