The Cat MH3022 and MH3024 material handler is purpose built for operation in waste and scrap metal applications. Their advanced electrohydraulic system optimizes the balance of power and efficiency, improving cycle times to handle more material in the same amount of time, according to the company.

These material handlers are powered by the Cat C4.4 engine, capable of operating on up to B-20 biodiesel. Meeting EU Stage V and U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions standards, the engine’s maintenance-free aftertreatment system lowers operating costs and maximizes machine uptime. The choice between Power and Eco power modes fine-tunes power requirements to the task at hand, offering up to 10% lower fuel usage than previous models without sacrificing machine performance.

A 12% wider, stabilized footprint increases the Cat MH3022’s operating stability for improved performance when lifting at extended reach. The MH3024 offers up to 7% greater swing torque to move more material faster. Heavy lift mode for both models boosts lifting capacities to more efficiently handle heavy loads. Allowing the boom to freely travel up and down without using pump flow, the standard SmartBoom allows the operator to focus on grapple control and have a smoother cycle.
