Caterpillar has developed a new control feature that allows each operator to run a Cat C-Series Skid-Steer, Multi-Terrain or Compact-Track Loader safely, productively, and comfortably. The new Hystat Response Control System (HRCS) uses software that permits the loader's hydrostatic drive/steer system to be adjusted to one of three response rates-standard, intermediate or maximum-to determine how rapidly the machine accelerates/decelerates and how quickly it responds to steering commands.
- Standard Setting - acceleration/deceleration rates feel smooth and controlled, as does steering response
- Intermediate Setting - machine will start and stop more quickly, steering-response lag is diminished
- Maximum Setting - loader will accelerate aggressively in forward, stop abruptly and respond instantaneously to steering commands
