Caterpillar India announced the launch of the new 2021D - a legacy machine with modern upgrades, in April 2017. The new machine comes with all the features and its unmatched customer benefits that it has been providing since its inception along with the newly added features as detailed below:
Efficiently powerful: Experience improved fuel efficiency with an optimised power train. The new Ashok Leyland, Bharat Stage III, 6-cylinder inline turbo-charged, after-cooled diesel engine gives better fuel efficiency and optimised performance. The complete power train system has been redesigned and customised to meet the Hindustan 2021D working requirements and provides the reliability and durability that customers need.
Work made easy: Move more with quick loading Performance Series buckets and optimised Zûbar linkage that significantly improve productivity. Customers will experience high fill factors and reduced fuel consumption per unit of material handled. Optimised steering hydraulics and less wheel turns significantly reduce operator effort. Optimised structures with increased lift height facilitates faster and easier loading. Performance Series buckets provide better fill factors and material retention. Best-in-class design of fluid filtration integrated circuits results in extended service intervals (hydraulic oil and filter changeover periods are doubled). The implement joystick is designed as single lever, which provides smooth and efficient control of the machine during application. Large mechanical doors provide excellent access for daily service of engine and cooling system components. Conveniently located hand-operated parking brake adds to safety.
Enjoy all day comfort: Have a seat in the 2021D wheel loader and enjoy, low sound levels, all around visibility and smooth joystick controls. Custom-designed seat with wrap around lumbar support and reclining back for operator rest periods. The spacious cab and wide platform at the top make the transition from cab to ground easy, safe and comfortable. The controls and displays have been designed to be adjustable and within reach of all sizes of operators. Ergonomically placed grab rails, handles and steps allow the operator to have three-point contact for safe entry and exit from the machine. Two rear working lights add to better visibility in low light conditions and night operations. One internal and two external rear view mirrors enhance rear visibility.
Configured for success: A complete range of optional equipment gives the versatility to configure the 2021D wheel loader to make customers successful in their businesses. Among the multiple factors that help reduce fuel consumption and operating costs are the patented Cat Performance Series buckets. Performance buckets utilise a system approach that balances bucket shape, linkage design, weight, lift and tilt capacity. The results are improved bucket load ability, higher fill factor, better material retention and shorter loading time. Higher lift arm with additional 120 mm dump clearance provides easier and faster truck and wagon loading. There are several options available to suit customer requirements like HVAC cab, Load Monitoring System, windshield guard and DGMS kit.
