Bobcat's T650 compact track loader

Compact track loaders from Case, Bobcat, New Holland, John Deere, Kubota Tractor Corp. and Caterpillar.

Case Construction Equipment recently upgraded its TR320 and TV380 Alpha Series compact track loaders, which now feature 90-hp, 3.4-liter Case diesel engines with the full high-pressure common rail design typically used in larger construction equipment. To meet Tier 4 Interim emission requirements, Case equipped the models with cooled exhaust gas recirculation technology, including diesel particulate filter and diesel oxidizing catalyst. Rated operating capacities are 3,200 pounds in the TR320, and 3,800 pounds for the TV380. The Case 3.4L engine features a new, patented piston design that promotes thorough combustion, optimizes power and fuel efficiency. Electronic engine controls monitor EGR sensors and other inputs to determine diesel particulate filter system regeneration needs. 262.636.6011,
