Backhoe Loaders: Caterpillar 450E Backhoe Loader

February 2010 Vol. 65 No. 2

The 450E Backhoe Loader is in the 17-foot dig depth class, has 124 net hp and a backhoe digging depth of 17 feet 3 inches when equipped with a standard stick.

The extendible stick pushes the 450E digging depth to 21 feet 4 inches. The general-purpose loader bucket is 1.75 cubic yards capacity. The high rotation backhoe linkage eliminates the need to change pin position when moving from loading trucks to vertical wall trenching. Four-wheel drive improves traction and machine balance. Ride control improves operator comfort at all speeds and reduces spillage when the bucket is full. A four-cylinder diesel engine has 4.4 liters displacement. catrequests@cat.com
