Superior performance with unmatched comfort in a machine that greatly contributes to forestry is found only in the production type 538 forest machines from Caterpillar. The superior performance found in the 538 is supported by the Cat C7 engine which is known for its fuel savings and is even able to run on biodiesel B20 because of its specially made configuration to produce maximum work. The fuel economy is due to an adjustment between the hydraulic power and the engine in various working conditions which have been set by the smart mode automatically. In addition, moving wood can also be done very quickly even though the load on the wood is heavy because the swing torque reaches 10% so that this tool can work up to 12% faster. Behind its strength in lifting heavy wood there are heavy lift modes that have been preset on demand as well as the role of a new electro-hydraulic control system that makes the selection of log places at precise power and precision.

In the operation, the operator will get a complete, clear, and easy to understand guide. Some of the ways of operating the 538 include the machine that can be turned on just by pressing a button from one of the three features that functions to turn it on, a touch screen monitor that makes it easy to navigate while operating even with high resolution, also equipped with a Cat PL161 Attachment Locator that helps operator if you are looking for the tools needed, and many other conveniences.
