LiuGong unveils first compact track loader for North America
LiuGong North America has introduced its first compact track loader, the 388B CTL. Built specifically for the demanding North American market, the new 388B gives its customers their first track machine.
With an operating weight of 11,442 pounds, the 388B is one of the market's largest CTLs for those who need highest productivity or hydraulic capabilities. Its 0.78-cubic-yard bucket capacity makes the 388B an efficient scoop for loading, unloading or relocating material.
An industry-standard quick coupler design enables the 388B to receive the same wide array of attachments that skid steers in the same class size utilize – from pallet forks, brooms and blades to snow plows, pushers, blowers and more.
Powered by a 94-hp Tier 4 Final 854F Perkins engine, third-valve auxiliary hydraulics come standard on the 388B machine, as does an electrical connection, conveniently located in the hook-up array. Hydraulic flow is 25.5 gpm or 35.9 gpm operating on the high flow option.

The display also showcases critical operating information and "trip" details. All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
