With its radial lift design, the Cat® 226 skid steer loader delivers an impressive mid-lift reach and excellent digging performance with outstanding drawbar power. A member of the new Cat D3 range which builds on 20+ years of leading-edge design, incorporating industry-first features and best-in-class performance, the Cat 226D3 offers unparalleled comfort, performance and productivity. Redesigned with a more comfortable cab that delivers 15% more space for increased operator comfort to keep productivity high and fatigue low throughout the day, the new Cat 226 skid steer is a versatile and powerful addition to any equipment fleet. 

Weighing in at 2,653kg and delivering 49.6kWnet power, the Cat 226 features an electronically controlled Cat C2.2 engine to provide high horsepower and torque, while the high-performance powertrain maximises performance and production capability through the Electronic Torque Management (ETM) system. And for demanding applications that demand maximum hydraulic work tool performance, the Cat 226 skid steer features a high-flow hydraulic system. Combined with Cat’s new industrial performance buckets that deliver 30% additional capacity and Cat’s “Intelligent Leveling” system with features like dual direction self level, work tool return to dig and work tool positioner, the Cat 226 enables your team to get more work done in less time. 

As a Cat skid steer loader, the Cat 226 delivers industry-leading versatility and multifunctionality. This new D3 skid steer is compatible with a huge range of Cat attachments, including buckets, backhoes, brush cutters, brooms, cold planers, stump grinders and wheel saws, enabling your team to get more work done with the one machine. What’s more, in addition to Cat’s easy coupler system, the Cat 226 offers an additional coupler option — an optional electronic quick coupler that enables the operator to switch tools without leaving the cab.
