A powerful new tool for mining, the Cat® R1700 Load-Haul-Dump (LHD) Loader showcases a range of design, technology integration and diesel emission control improvements that deliver added value, power and performance, with safety at its core. With each cycle, the Cat R1700 hauls 20 percent more payload, and loads, climbs, hauls and dumps quicker to help you move more material per hour on site. This new and improved Cat LHD features three engine emission options that can be tailored to your mine’s ventilation requirements and improve worksite health and safety for your team. When you’re ready to upgrade to an LHD loader delivering industry-leading fuel efficiency, capacity and lift force, the Cat R1700 LHD is the machine to add to your fleet. 

Like the larger Cat R2900 and R300 LHDs, through advanced technology and validation the R1700 delivers frame strength where it needs it most and saved strength in other areas. The front frame section has a new four-plate design with fully integrated front axle support casting to absorb greater impact, vibration and tram loads, while the redesigned engine end frame delivers improved loading, centre of gravity and operator ride quality. In addition to enhanced frame strength, the Cat R1700 loader delivers enhanced power through its upgrade to the Cat C13 diesel engine with an in-line, turbo-charged 6-cylinder configuration that provides greater production capacity.

Available as either an enclosed cab or an open cab configuration, operator comfort and safety has been prioritised with the new Cat R1700 loader. While the cab maintains the same footprint as previous generations, the interior has been upgraded with added space allotment for the operator and all new electronic components. Additionally, operator control and ride quality has been enhanced with new braking performance, slope holding capabilities and operator present system with hydraulic system neutralisation and door sensor. These new features and more show the degree to which Cat has prioritised safety on the R1700.
