Caterpillar has introduced four Caterpillar[R] C-Series skid steer loaders--246C, 256C, 262C, 272C. The big units are said to deliver industry-leading performance in their size classes. The company says the skid steers also set new standards in machine control with features such as electro-hydraulic joystick control of the hydrostatic drive system and electronic torque management for smooth operation and high productivity. Operator comfort, too, reaches new levels with features such as an optional sealed and pressurized cab and an optional air-suspension seat. Additional options, such as High Flow XPS hydraulics on each of the models, expand versatility. The C-Series machines extend the Caterpillar line. With a rated operating capacity of 3,250 pounds, the 272C is the largest capacity skid steer loader the company has produced, www.cat.com.
