After recent updates of its range of Skid Steer and Multi Terrain Loaders, Caterpillar has announced a brand new option for its products.

Caterpillar says since August, the company has worked to increase versatility of the 242B3, 257B3, and 259B3 models by adding the High Flow hydraulics option.

This upgraded hydraulics will provide approximately 40 percent more Hydraulic HP over the standard flow system and increase oil flow.  The High Flow auxiliary system is said to generate a calculated hydraulic-horsepower rating of 60.3.

Caterpillar also says this feature will expand the performance of these "power dense" small platform machines by allowing operation of tools such as High Flow cold planers, snow blowers, augers, and brush cutters.
