Cat adds fourth material handler
By Lindsay Gale09 June 2015
Cat’s new MH3027 is the fourth and smallest in the series of new wheeled material handlers introduced to global markets in the greater than 25 metric tonne size class. At 28,500 kg (62,832 lb), the MH3027 delivers superior performance in a smaller package—specifically a swing radius that is 213 mm (8.3 inches) less than the Cat MH3037.
The new material handlers are purpose-built from the ground up to work productively and reliably in solid waste and scrap recycling. The MH3027 is available in configurations for waste handling, featuring a straight stick, and for scrap handling featuring a drop nose stick. A debris resistant cooling package with a hydraulic, variable speed, auto reversing fan and plug resistant coolers equips the machine for challenging conditions.
The MH3027 is powered by a Cat C7.1 ACERT engine that meets US EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emissions standards. Operation of the emissions control system is completely transparent to the operator—with no downtime for particulate filter regeneration. The engine features an electronically controlled, mechanically actuated, unit-injector fuel system that uses multiple-injection fuel delivery for optimum power and economy in all operating situations. The MH3027 configuration is rated at 129 kW (173 hp).
