The new Cat material handlers are purpose-built from the ground up to work productively and reliably in solid waste and scrap recycling.
The MH3027 is available in configurations for waste handling, featuring a straight stick, and for scrap handling, featuring a drop nose stick. A debris resistant cooling package with a hydraulic, variable speed, auto reversing fan and plug resistant coolers equips the machine for challenging conditions.
The MH3027 also provides superior protection and convenience for the operator. The Cat cab avoidance system, using sensors on the front linkage, is standard equipment and helps ensure that the work tool will not contact the cab. New with the MH3027 model, customers can select from two hydraulic cab riser options. Customers can choose the cab-to-platform configuration or customers can choose the patented “ground level entry and exit” with a step-in cab that lowers to the front or the side of the machine to enhance convenience and safety for operators and service personnel. The hydraulic cab riser takes the operator to 18’0” feet for optimal jobsite visibility.
Additionally, the cab features joystick steering control, which eliminates the steering wheel and opens the front view for the operator. A standard rearview camera also expands sight lines with optional side view camera.
The intelligent, load-sensing hydraulic system delivers power when needed and reduces fuel burn. High strength structural steel and advanced welding techniques ensure structural integrity. And enhanced serviceability features, such as auto lube for the upper area of the machine and centralized manual lube for the lower, simplify maintenance.
True four wheel mechanical drive provides excellent maneuvering performance even on unimproved terrain. A variable displacement hydraulic motor coupled with a two-speed transmission provides high- and low-speed travel with creeper speed capability for excellent control due to the infinitely variable travel speed. An oscillating rear axle provides smooth travel over rough terrain. The rear axle is equipped with an oscillation lock that provides greater stability during light duty material handling without stabilizers deployed.
