I stopped by Milton Cat(Syracuse location) last month and found some mean looking track harvesters on display. The 501HD below had the complete setup with PF-48 harvester head. I was surprised to find that head was also a Cat a product. Is there any type of heavy equipment they don’t make?
My eye was drawn to the larger 522B model nearby as it was nearly all black instead of the typical Cat yellow. A red and gold strip ran across the back of the unit.
The black cab with rivets running the perimeter gave the machine a very unique look. In the sea of yellow it stood out. The poor trees this machine runs up against don’t stand a chance.
I see some hydraulics rams near the base of the table so I’m guessing it can move in a variety of directions. Good stuff!
