High Performance

With its high full turn tipping loads and breakout forces, the H2 Series delivers a powerful solution for a variety of customer applications.

Ease of Operation

With great visibility to work tools, operating the H2 Series CWL couldn’t be easier. Simple controls and the ergonomically designed, low effort joysticks reduce fatigue and increase comfort.

Power Train

The standard hydrostatic driveline is a two-speed, 20 km/h transmission. Heavy duty axles are fitted as standard with 100% diff-lock and ride control available as options.


The design of the H2 Series allows quick and easy servicing. Tilt up engine hood and side service doors give exceptional access to the major components safely from ground level. S·O·S SM oil ports and pressure test points enable easy preventative maintenance

Cat 3.3B DIT U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim Compliant Engine

Engine service area features eco-friendly drains, easily accessible filters, ground level service points, and separate coolers for cleaning. The electric fuel pump self-primes dry, fresh filters to make servicing fast and contamination free.

Chassis and Heavy Duty Axles

With 18 degrees of motion, the oscillating chassis assures four wheel ground contact. Heavy duty axles with outboard planetary reduction gears are more durable. Standard differential locks in both axles can be engaged on the move.

Two Speed Options

The hydro-static drive line offers two speeds in “Low” range: 1st Gear – 7 km/h (4.3 mph) and 2nd Gear – 20 km/h (12.4 mph). The optional speeder transmission provides up to 35 km/h (21.7 mph) in “High” range. Both versions feature smooth inching with the brake pedal as standard.

Additionally, an optional transmission control upgrade offers creeper control, rimpull control and hand throttle. The combination of creeper and hand throttle is used for powering hydromechanical work tools such as snowblowers or cold planers. The rimpull control reduces the amount of tire slippage in soft or loose underfoot conditions, adjusted between 60% and 100% tractive force.

Ride Control

The optional Ride Control improves operator comfort, material retention, machine controllability, and higher productivity. Three modes are available – auto, on and off. This feature is highly recommended if the machine is equipped with the 35 km/h (21.7 mph) speeder option.


The new H2 Series Compact Wheel Loaders maintain the Cat strengths while boasting a whole new range of features and benefits. In short, a machine that can be trusted to perform.
