Cat’s new B3 Series loaders—SSL models 216B3, 226B3, 236B3, 242B3, 252B3 and MTL models 247B3 and 257B3—incorporate design refinements that make them even more capable, more reliable, safer and easier to operate. In addition, a larger engine and more powerful hydraulics for the 242B3 and 257B3 make these models "power-dense" machines that maintain a nimble size and excellent maneuverability.
