420 XE Backhoe Loader

420 XE Backhoe Loader

DESCRIPTION

The Cat® 420 XE Backhoe Loader delivers exceptional performance, increased fuel efficiency, superior hydraulic system, versatility and an updated operator station.

Ergonomic Operator Station

Adjustable Seat Mounted Controls improve ergonomics by increasing operator comfort and legroom. Operators have Loader and Backhoe Controls in the palm of their hands, whether they are facing the Loader, the Backhoe, or sitting off set for better visibility. The new Spring Applied Hydraulically Released (SAHR) Parking Brake is controlled by simply pressing a button.

The 420 XE Backhoe Loader.

Load Sensing Hydraulics

The Cat Backhoe Loader’s load sensing piston pump provides full hydraulic lifting and digging forces at any engine speed. Variable flow pump matches hydraulic power to work demands.

Machine Performance

The Cat C3.6 engine delivers solid performance and meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage V emission standards by utilizing Selective Catalytic Reduction technology with a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst. The system allows the operator to disconnect the machine, even while the diesel exhaust fluid is being purged from the system.

Machine Versatility

The all new Integrated Tool Carrier (IT Coupler) for Single Tilt Loader Arm configurations are available from the factory or for simple field installation. The Cat Backhoe Loader with Integrated Tool Carrier (IT Coupler) will be the most versatile machine on the job site providing quick connection to a variety of Cat Attachments.

Cat Attachments

A large portfolio of Backhoe Loader Attachments, including but not limited to, Quick Couplers, Thumbs, assorted Buckets, and Brooms are available from the factory or for field installation. Cat Backhoe Loaders will be “Dirt Ready” upon delivery.

Powershift Transmission

A Four Speed Powershift Transmission is standard to make shifting gears smooth and as simple as twisting the Powershuttle Lever.

Lift Performance

The redesigned boom cylinder increases lift performance by 15%.
