Cat® C9.3 ACERT™

160M3 AWD not only excels at heavier jobs – it also gives you the extra traction you need to work in the toughest ground conditions like mud, gravel or snow. The All Wheel Drive models offer a steering compensation system that gives you a “power turn” for better turning performance in poor underfoot conditions.
