With a lower center of gravity, the redesigned 121F has improved lifting power and breakout force. The suspension has been enhanced with an oscillating rear axle that works independently of the cab for greater operator comfort and load control, and an optional limited-slip differential provides on-demand traction in loose or uneven terrain. A new proportional loader control gives operators greater command of attachments, and with Connect Under Pressure (CUP) manifolds and a hydraulic coupler, switch out is quick and easy.
The 121F features a maintenance-free Tier 4 Final solution that uses a Particulate Matter Catalyst + Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) with high-efficiency flow-through filter. What does this mean to operators? We’re glad to say nothing. No Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) to replace. No new fluids to add. Just get in and go. It’s the best match for versatile, on-the-go machines of this size.
Comfort and Visibility
A restyled cab offers more space, greater all-around visibility, a fully adjustable suspension seat and a more intuitive control interface to simplify operation. With new Creep Speed, Return-to-Dig and Auto-Ride Control™ options, it’s even easier to maximize productivity throughout the day.
With a tilt-up hood and friendlier access to daily checkpoints, the new F Series compact wheel loaders were redesigned to simplify serviceability. Radiators, filters, hydraulics and the engine are all easily accessible so routine maintenance can be done in a matter of minutes.
