New Small-Chassis D Series Loaders

The Cat® Compact Track Loaders and Skid Steer Loaders have four new small-chassis D series additions: Skid Steer Loader models 226D and 232D, and Compact Track Loader models 239D and 249D. They all incorporate the innovative features of the larger D series machines and use an electronic Cat C2.2 engine that meets Tier 4-Final/Stage IIIB emissions standards. The 232D is designed for landscaping applications, and the 239D and 249D are geared towards the general construction and rental markets. The Small-Chassis D Series Loaders also include a two-speed drive system that reaches up to 11mph, allowing transport without a Commercial Driver’s License.
