Why choose Skid Steer Loaders

  • One machine for multiple tasks

    Make one machine more versatile than ever before with three Smart attachments that are exclusive to Caterpillar. Smart technology interacts with the machine to change the built-in advanced display. The joystick operates each attachment.

  • Robust and durable

    The D3 machines are more robust than ever before. The durable fuel system has one filter, which makes it easier to maintain. A stronger step, tread and grab-handle are designed to withstand daily wear and tear to help you get into the cab safely, every day.

  • Stability and safety, every time

    Experience a new undercarriage designed exclusively for the D3 Series compact track loaders. It reduces the rocking or pitching motion when you’re handling heavy loads, grading or dumping material into a truck. Suspension creates a comfortable ride for all applications.

  • Cab comfort

    All models offer 40% wider door-opening and sealed, pressurised cabs with more legroom. A high-vis orange seatbelt and rotary beacons boost jobsite safety. Enjoy a safe, comfortable working environment to do your best work.

"The most versatile piece of equipment that a small company like us can own.
We can do so many things with them.”
