Caterpillar recently announced new attachments for skid steers, compact track loaders, and mini excavators. Please see the below bullet points for the individual announcements.

  • Three new Cat SMART attachments, the Dozer Blade, Grader Blade, and Backhoe, are designed to add significant versatility to a range of D3 Series Cat Skid Steer Loaders, Compact Track Loaders, and Multi Terrain Loaders. The control systems for the new attachments allow easily adapting the machine’s standard controls to precisely match the recognized SMART Attachments’ control needs.

  • Caterpillar Work Tools now has a TiltRotate System (TRS) for Cat Next Gen mini excavators. The new TRS6 and TRS8 models allow attached work tools (including buckets, forks, grapples, brooms, and compactors) to rotate 360 degrees and tilt 40 degrees side-to-side, enabling the machine to reach more work areas from a single position, while maneuvering tools over, under, and around obstructions when excavating, grading ditches, sorting recycle materials, or placing pipe. The new TRS models multiply the mini excavator’s versatility and are available in various configurations to match the application. To view the full press release for TRS, click on this link.
