Caterpillar's updated version of its 134 Kw It38G series II integrated toolcarrier features parallel lift linkages, integral quick couplers, enhanced versatility and increased operator visibility.
By evaluating component placement and rerouting hydraulic lines, Cat has increased the operator viewing area, giving improved lines of sight to the work tool and coupler for quicker tool changes and higher productivity. Prior to the update, the IT38G II had quick coupler pins actuated by a third lever and delivered pressure to move them through a third valve. The new electro-hydraulic system for the quick coupler, accessible via a switch in the cab, expands work tool capabilities, because the third lever and valve are now available for additional work tool functionality, such as a top clamp or a rollout bucket.
