Video: Caterpillar's Sherrie Carter talks about Cat's new 450F Backhoe loader

Cat has decided to give customers more than just an updated emissions package. "Emissions is a tricky thing.There's a lot of them, so we're having to do a lot of commuication with our customers. We have a passive system which means no operator interaction [with the system]," explains Sherrie Carter of Caterpillar Inc.

With the F Series, customers received 12% more lift capacity in the front of the machine. Caterpillar has also changed its pump system to an electronic system so the machine knows if it's being operated in backhoe mode or loader mode.
