    Cab

    ROPS

    ROPS: ISO 3471:2008

    FOPS

    FOPS: ISO 3449:2005 Level II

    Note (1)

    Cat cab and Rollover Protective Structures (ROPS) are standard in North America and Europe.

    Note (2)

    The declared dynamic operator Sound Pressure level per ISO 6396:2008*, when the cab is properly installed and maintained, is 75 dB(A). The labeled sound power level for the CE marked configurations when measured according to the test procedure and conditions specified in 2000/14/EC is 101 dB(A). Optional Low Sound or Blue Angel selection will reduce this to 99 dB(A).

    Note (3)

    *The measurements were conducted with the cab doors and windows closed.

    Note (1)

    Net power ratings are tested at the reference conditions for the specified standard.

    Note (2)

    Net power shown is the power available at the flywheel when the engine is equipped with alternator, air cleaner, diesel exhaust filter, and fan at minimum speed.

    Note (3)

    No derating required up to 3000 m (10,000 ft) altitude. Auto derate protects hydraulic and transmission systems.

    Note (4)

    Flywheel per the SAE reference conditions with the fan at maximum speed.

    Note (5)

    The Cat C3.3B DIT Tier 4 Final/Stage V uses an active regeneration system which requires no operator interaction under normal conditions.

    Note (6)

    Stage V engine available for Europe only.
