Frame Design

The frame is engineered to withstand extreme forces generated during loading and tramming cycles. Precision manufacturing process ensures all structures are consistently built to high quality. Deep penetration and consistent welds throughout the frame ensures structures are solidly fused to provide sturdy platform for the linkage and the axles. The design and manufacturing quality of Cat LHD frames have been proven by our customers, many of whom reuse frames during machine rebuilds to get 2nd and 3rd lives out of their LHD's.


Spread hitch design widens the distance between upper and lower hitch plates to distribute forces and increase bearing life. Thicker hitch plates reduce deflection. The wide opening provides easy service access. Upper and lower hitch pins pivot on roller bearings to distribute horizontal and vertical loads over a greater surface area. Shim adjusted preload reduces maintenance time. An on-board steering frame lock pin is fitted to prevent articulation during maintenance and service.

Sealed Pins

Sealed colleted pins are fitted to all major bucket and lift arm hinge points for longer pin and bushing life. This reduces maintenance costs and extends service intervals. The sealed joints retain lubrication and prevent contaminant entry.

Z-bar Loader Linkage

Proven Z-bar loader linkage geometry generates powerful breakout force and an increased rack back angle for better bucket loading and material retention. Heavy duty steel lift arms with cast steel cross tube ensures extreme loads encountered during loading and tramming are efficiently dissipated for long service life.

Hydraulic System

Powerful Cat hydraulics deliver exceptional digging and lifting forces for fast cycle times.

Lift and Tilt System

High hydraulic flow rates provide fast hydraulic cylinder response and powerful lift forces. Large-bore lift and tilt cylinder delivers exceptional strength, performance and durability.

Pilot Controls

Low effort, pilot operated joystick implement control with simultaneous lift and tilt functions optimizes operating efficiency.

Optional Ride Control

The optional ride control system uses a nitrogen filled oil accumulator in the hydraulic lift circuit to act as a shock absorber for the bucket and lift arms. The lift arm and bucket response to movement is dampened over rough ground, reducing fore and aft pitch, improving cycle times and load retention. A smoother, more comfortable ride gives operators the confidence to travel at speeds above 5 km/h (3 mph) during load and carry operations.

Cat Hydraulic Hose

Field proven Cat high pressure XT hydraulic hoses are exceptionally strong and flexible for maximum system reliability and long life in the most demanding conditions. Reusable couplings with O-ring face seals provide superior, leak free performance and prolong hose assembly life.


Product Safety

Caterpillar has been and continues to be proactive in developing mining machines that meet or exceed safety standards. Safety is an integral part of all machine and systems designs.

Engine Shut Off Switch

A secondary engine shutoff switch is located at ground level.

Integral ROPS Cab

Integral to the cab and frame, the ROPS is resiliently mounted to the frame to isolate the operator from vibration for a more comfortable ride.

Brake Systems

Four corner oil-cooled braking system provides excellent control. The service brake system is actuated by modulated hydraulic pressure, while the parking brake function is spring applied and hydraulic released. This system assures braking in the event of loss of hydraulic failure.

Standard Safety Features

Anti-skid upper deck surfaces, lower cab light, ground level compartment sight glasses, increased visibility, 3-point access to cab and machine, push out safety glass, suspension seat, inertia reel retractable seat belt, bucket control group safety pins, hot and cold side of engine, articulation lock, hinged belly guards.

Operator Comfort

The operator station is ergonomically designed for total machine control in a comfortable, productive and safe environment. All controls, levers, switches and gauges are positioned to maximize productivity and minimize operator fatigue.

Protective Structure

Integral to the cab and frame, the Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) and the Falling Objects Protective Structure (FOPS), are resiliently mounted to the frame to isolate the operator from vibration for a more comfortable ride.

Optional Enclosed Cab

Optional sound-suppressed ROPS cab provides a quiet, secure working environment. Large window openings offer excellent visibility in all directions. Enclosed design provides fresh, pressurized, temperature-controlled air circulation with air condition for a more comfortable working environment.

STIC™ Steering and Transmission Integrated Control

STIC provides effortless control of the machine by a single controller. Simple side-to-side motion articulates the machine. Directional shifting (forward/neutral/reverse) is controlled using a three position rocker switch. The thumb operated buttons control gear selection.

Pilot Controls

Low-effort pilot operated joystick controls integrate steering, transmission and implement functions for smoother, faster cycles with less operator fatigue. The added function of a transmission neutralizer over ride switch on the joystick provides the operator the ability to inch toward a truck when loading without having to remove their foot completely from the pedal enabling greater control of the machine.

Power Train – Transmission

Power Shift Transmission

The Cat four-speed planetary power shift transmission is matched with the Cat C15 diesel engine to deliver constant power over a wide range of operating speeds.

Robust Design

Designed for rugged underground mining conditions, the proven planetary power shift transmission is built for long life between overhauls.

Torque Converter Lockup Clutch

Combines maximum rimpull while in torque converter drive with the efficiency and performance of direct drive when the lockup clutch is engaged. The lockup clutch delivers more power to the wheels for superior power train efficiency.

Electronic Auto Shift Transmission

The electronic auto shift transmission increases operator efficiencies and optimizes machine performance. The operator can choose between manual or auto shift modes.

Transmission Neutralizer

Using the left brake pedal, the operator can engage the service brakes and neutralize the transmission, maintaining high engine rpm for full hydraulic flow, enhancing digging and loading functions.

Engine Over Speed Protection

The engine over speed control system will control the engine to a pre-set RPM to prevent an engine over speed event from occurring. It achieves this by modulating the service brakes to slow the machine down therefore reducing the engine RPM.


No spin rear differential reduces tire wear and maximizes traction in uneven terrain.

Loader Bucket Systems


Cat LHD buckets deliver unmatched productivity and structural reliability to help lower your cost-per-ton. Our bucket design is also improved with the use of two types of cast corners to help strengthen the side plate to bucket lip joint as well as allowing for various cutting edges.

Optional Wear Packages

Weld-on wear plates in high wear areas are standard. Additional wear packages, including sacrificial wear strips and Cat heel shrouds protect the edges from damage and reduce the need for costly bucket rebuilds.

Optional Cutting Edges

Cat half arrow and cast half arrow cutting edges extend bucket life in high wear applications. Available weld-on GET offers more wear material to maximize system wear life and bucket protection. Downtime is also reduced by an even wear rate between corners and edge segments, allowing both to be replaced at the same time. Cat Mechanically Attached Shrouds (MAS) are also available on the R2900G buckets to provide non weld-on option for hardware selection to better suit application. The MAS can be further protected with the installation of the Cat Mechanically Attached Wear Plates (MAWPS) to protect the bucket base and cutting edge.


Service Access

Easy access to daily service points simplifies servicing and reduces time spent on regular maintenance procedures.

Ground-Level Access

Allows convenient servicing to all tanks, filters, lubrication points and compartment drains. Electric fuel priming. Engine oil and fuel filters installed on cold side of engine.
