Caterpillar announces new products for the Indian market

Caterpillar announced the launch of four new products for the Indian market that include an advanced series of backhoe loaders (426F2 and 424B2), Hindustan wheel loader (2021D2), and Cat excavators (336D2 and 349D2). The company aims to deepen its presence in infrastructure, mining, defence, and energy sectors in India with innovative and cutting-edge technology. Other products showcased were Cat’s 125 kVA FG Wilson generator set; SEM branded motor graders, wheel loader and dozer; 500 KVA generator set; and product support capabilities viz Cat 360° Advantage, Cat Connect Technology, Product Support (Service Van display), Cat Finance, and Rental & Used Equipment.

“Customers can expect increased productivity with an improved operator environment, better fuel efficiency and more reliability from the new range of backhoe loaders. The pump flow in a superior hydraulic system delivers excellent hydraulic performance at the operator’s fingertips. In fact, all Cat products are well positioned to meet the demands of the Indian market, overcoming challenges of unfriendly topography, harsh weather conditions, rough terrains and high altitudes. Caterpillar is looking at India from an aggressive standpoint and we will build this aggressiveness in the years to come,” said Mr. Vivek Vanmeeganathan, Country Head and Managing Director, Caterpillar India.

He added, “For over 35 years, from A Series to the new F2 Series, we have produced backhoe loaders that are designed with the operator in mind, providing reliability, power and a quality operator environment. A large number of infrastructure projects, especially highways, energy, and rail projects, are currently underway in several parts of the country. Initiatives such as Smart Cities, Clean Ganga, and Swachh Bharat offer huge potential for us.”

Mr. Amit Bansal, Sales Director, Building Construction Products, Caterpillar India, said, “The 426F2 features the Cat C4.4 four-cylinder engine. The engine is four stroke direct injection turbo-charged, inter-cooled and equipped with standard glow plug starting for optimal cold weather performance. This provides reliable starting performance down to –26°C.”

Caterpillar also showcased its new excavator Cat 336D2 and 349D2, along with its motor graders and track type tractors. Cat excavators can undertake complex tasks in tough terrains, with performance and safety features, and will be suitable for construction and road building projects.

With 3210 kg payload, the new Hindustan wheel loader 2021D2 comes with improved operator environment and a highly reliable and fuel-efficient engine. The wheel loaders provide higher productivity with improved lift height and the lowest operational cost.

Mr. Andy Dhanaraj, Sales Director, Global Construction and Infrastructure, Caterpillar India, said, “Cat machines have advanced technological capability and have demonstrated positive results in difficult terrains in many parts of the world. We have been manufacturing in India for more than four decades; and today there are six manufacturing facilities in Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, and Maharashtra.”
