Posted on February 21, 2013

Caterpillar, in cooperation with its German dealer, Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH, will exhibit more than 70 machines  at Bauma 2013.  Three different exhibit areas totalling over 12,000 m2 of space will showcase Cat machines, work tools and engines.   The main indoor stand, in hall B6 features more than 50 machines. 

The stand will showcase:

  • The new Cat 336E H hybrid excavator that will be formally launched at the show. This model uses a new hydraulic technology developed by Caterpillar.
  • The 988K wheel loader, also being introduced at the show, meets European Union (EU) Stage 4/United States (U.S.) EPA Tier 4 final emission standards and offers up to 20% greater fuel efficiency compared to the previous model.
  • The Cat  966K XE wheel loader, equipped with an advanced powertrain system.
  • The Cat D7E electric drive track-type tractor.

Additional Cat machine introductions feature four mini excavators: Cat 302.2D, 302.4D and the compact radius 301.7D and 308E2, the 444F equal size tyre (EST) backhoe loader and the D6K2 track-type tractor.  The recently introduced 318E hydraulic excavator and M313D wheel excavator, the 120M2 AWD motor grader as well as the 91-tonne capacity 777G off-highway truck will be on show.

The 6020B hydraulic mining shovel is a brand new, “clean-sheet” design that will make its market debut at Bauma. With a 220-tonne operating weight and a 20-tonne payload, the 6020B is the largest Cat machine on display. 

Cat paving products include the introduction of three new models: the AP300D paver and two utility compactors: the CB24B and CB34B XW.

Caterpillar’s industrial engine group will feature a range of EU Stage 4/U.S. EPA Tier 4 final engines. These engines span 8.2 to 895 bkW (11 to 1200 bhp) and are utilized by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the construction, mining and general industrial sectors. On display will be a C2.2 and C7.1 ACERT engine, in addition to a C4.4 ACERT and C13 ACERT power unit.  The industrial exhibit is located on stand 316 in Hall A4.
