All Day Comfort
Comfort and ease of operation have been designed into every aspect of the operator station. The wide, spacious interior and uncluttered floor provide a comfortable work environment with excellent head, shoulder and leg room to keep productivity high and fatigue low. The adjustable seat and low effort controls keep the operator comfortable throughout the work day.
Low Effort Joystick Controls
Ergonomic, pilot hydraulic controls deliver precise control with minimal effort. The right joystick controls the loader raise, lower and tilt functions while the left joystick controls the forward and reverse travel speed plus direction. Optional deluxe joysticks provide additional auxiliary controls with fingertip control of many work tool functions, including proportional work tool hydraulics and work tool electrical. Basic and deluxe joystick functions include one-touch continuous auxiliary hydraulic flow and momentary auxiliary hydraulic flow.
The wide cab opening offers an exceptional view to the work tool. The sloped angle of the engine compartment allows excellent visibility to the rear of the machine. The standard rear view mirror gives the operator a panoramic view of the machine's rear and sides. The side windows remove easily for cleaning.
Additional Features for Maximum Comfort
The B-Series 3 machines offer the following additional features to help you on the job:
Exceptional lift, breakout and power to meet your needs.Learn More
High Performance Hydraulic System
Maximum power and reliability are built into the machine’s hydraulic system. In addition to providing power to the wheels, this system also provides the loader lift and tilt functions, powers the auxiliary circuit to drive work tools and drives the engine cooling fan. The hydraulic pumps are driven directly off the engine for maximum hydraulic performance and reliability – no belts are used. The hydraulic system also features:
High Flow Hydraulics
High flow hydraulic system is available on the 242B Series 3 for greater machine versatility and increased work tool performance.
High Efficiency Cooling System
Cooling capacity is maximized through the use of a side-by-side cooling package and hydraulically driven cooling fan.
Aggressive performance with fuel efficiency.Learn More
The high performance power train provides high engine horsepower and torque. The B-Series 3 machines feature rugged, reliable Cat engines that meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim and EU Stage IIIA emissions requirements.
Hand and Foot Throttles
Hand and foot throttles allow the operator to match engine speed to the task. The hand throttle is ideal for jobs requiring constant engine speed such as cold planing, trenching or snow blowing. The foot throttle lets the operator vary engine speed and minimize fuel consumption for other tasks such as load and carry, truck loading, grading and dozing.
The anti-stall system maximizes machine power at all times by matching the engine torque with the operational requirements of the hystat and implement systems. This load sensing feature prevents the engine from stalling even during part throttle operation, keeping productivity high and fuel consumption low.
Two Speed Option
Two speed is available as an option on the 236B Series 3, 242B Series 3 and 252B Series 3 Skid Steer Loader to improve cycle times and get the job done faster.
Built for tough jobs.Learn More
The 242B Series 3 features the vertical lift design which provides extended reach and lift height for quick and easy truck loading and material placement. The lift height is 3086 mm (121 in) on the 242B Series 3.
