Hydraulic System

Fast, Precise, Flexible

When it comes to moving material quickly, you need efficient hydraulics – the type the MH Series can deliver.

Efficient Design, Smart and Fast

  • Simple Design – The new hydraulic valve compartment and routings offer a simple and clean design to help ensure durability. Everything is reachable from ground level.
  • Smart Main Hydraulics – The system allows reducing the load on the engine when not needed, which translates into lower fuel consumption.
  • Dedicated Swing Pump – A closed hydraulic circuit is dedicated to the swing only. Having two separate pumps, one for the swing and the second for the other functions allows faster and smoother combined movements.

Control Like No Other

  • Electronic Pump Control – Controllability is one of the main attributes of the MH3024, and one of the key contributors to this is the Electronic Pump Control (EPC) that’s designed to improve response time and precision. It puts flow exactly where you need it, when you need it, which means a much smoother operation and greater efficiency.
  • Adjustable Hydraulic Sensitivity – Allows you to adjust the aggressiveness of the machine according to the application.
  • Stick Regeneration Circuit – Increases efficiency and helps enhance controllability for higher productivity.

Well Balanced Cooling Package

The hydraulic oil cooler is mounted side-by-side with the engine radiator and the air-to-air aftercooler (ATAAC). Located separately from the engine and featuring a well-balanced sizing, the new cooling package offers unprecedented up-times even in difficult environments.

Structure – Elevated Cab and Frame

Strength, Flexibility and Mobility

High Visibility – 2400 mm (94.5 in) Elevated Cab

The hydraulic cab riser is designed to be:

  • Stable – Wide lift arms, deep box-sectioned design, strong top and bottom links and retractable hydraulic cylinders used to raise the cab for greater stability.
  • Fast – Two heavy-duty hydraulic cylinders provide quick and controlled up and down travel.
  • Comfortable – The parallelogram design of the linkage allows the cab to remain level at all ranges of motion. Cab movement is also slowed as it reaches the end of the riser stroke, with no sudden start/stop effect.
  • Safe – The cab can be lowered using either a lever inside the cab or one on the frame at ground level in the event of a hydraulic malfunction.

Undercarriage Options

Effective hydraulic line routing, transmission protection and heavy-duty axles make the Cat undercarriages perfect for material handler applications. Three different undercarriages are available to provide the stability you need for your applications:

  • Material Handling – The Material Handling undercarriage with four welded outriggers is ideal when extra stability is needed.
  • Material Handling with Dozer Blade – An optional expansion to the Material Handling Undercarriage includes an additional dozer blade mounted ahead of the front stabilizers to be used to push material commonly encountered in waste and millyard applications.
  • The standard undercarriage allows for different kinds of stabilizers and blades to be attached either to the front or to the rear.

Heavy-Duty Axles

The front axle offers wide oscillating and steering angles. The transmission is mounted directly on the rear axle for protection and optimum ground clearance.

Advanced Disc Brake System

The disc brake system acts directly on the hub instead of the drive shaft to avoid planetary gear backlash. This minimizes the rocking effect associated with working free on wheels.

Driveline Concept

The driveline design effectively utilizes engine torque and power to provide a comfortable ride.

Ground Clearance

The MH3024 offers good ground clearance, with the transmission mounted on and protected by the rear axle.


Allow Your Operator to Fully Concentrate on Production

The unique Cat SmartBoom significantly enhances operator comfort and job efficiency by reducing stress and vibrations transmitted to the machine. Loading is more productive and more fuel efficient as the return cycle is reduced while the boom down function does not require pump flow.

Front Linkage

Durability – Built with No Compromises

You know that a material handler works only as good as its front linkage is able to handle the job. The MH3024’s booms and sticks are purpose built for the loads encountered in material handling applications.

MH Boom

MH booms include high pressure hydraulic lines for opening and closing functionality and medium pressure lines for implement rotation.

MH Sticks

MH sticks are equipped with high and medium pressure auxiliary lines. The 4900 mm (16'1") and 5900 mm (19'4") Drop Nose Sticks offer the reaching and lifting capabilities required for typical MH applications, while the 4800 mm (15'9") Straight Stick is the best solution when additional work tool functionality is needed.

Special Applications

The MH3024 offers the ability to combine the hydraulic cab riser with a traditional excavator front linkage. This combination has been proven in transfer station, mining, and millyard applications. Automatic lubrication of the whole uppercarriage extends component life, protecting your equipment.

When productivity, reliability and stability are important, Cat attachments are the perfect solution for the MH3024. Choose one for your Cat machine for maximum performance.

Productive and Perfectly Matched

Loading and unloading is foundational to your productivity. Grapples are sized right for the MH3024. They are designed for maximum penetration into the pile. The full power of your machine is utilized to provide fast open/close times and powerful closing force. Full, 360° rotation systems allow precise placement. Together, an MH3024 and Cat grapple allow you to move volumes with minimal time and effort.

Built for Severe Material

Cat grapples are built to take on the material you move. Hydraulic components are protected from damage, yet easily accessed for routine maintenance. Areas that dig and penetrate are made of high quality, wear resistant material to keep them in working condition. Components that pivot and move are engineered to the latest standards for a long life. Cat grapples last for a positive impact to your bottom line.

Orange Peel Grapples

The perfect solution for scrap yards, recycling plants and transfer stations. These grapples are available with 4 or 5 tines, in capacities from 600 L (0.78 yd3) to 1000 L (1.31 yd3). Several shell choices allow further customization of your grapple to the specific material you work with.

Reduced Damage and Downtime

Cat cylinders and hoses are located inside the grapple, protected against cutting and scoring from scrap impact. Four exposed connector lines to the machine are guarded – protecting them from damage.

Power Match*

Match your Cat hydraulic work tools to your Cat machine, and get the most out of the standard, built-in software. Ten hydraulic pump flow and pressure settings can be preset within the monitor, eliminating the need to adjust the hydraulics each time a tool is changed. Attachment changes have never been easier!

*For straight/linkage sticks.
