415F2 Backhoe Loader

Experience the new Cat 415F2 Backhoe Loader with features including spacious operator station, optional pilot controls, superior durability and outstanding performance. Safely operate on the job site with quieter hydraulics, increased visibility, and the ability to have four wheel braking engaged without wearing on tires or drive train.

Operator Station

Unmatched Comfort

The ergonomic, automotive style operator station helps you work comfortably and productively all day long. Choose the configuration that meets your needs – Canopy, Cab Deluxe or Cab Deluxe with Air Conditioning. Other features include:

  • Adjustable air suspension seat
  • Tilt steering column
  • Excellent visibility over hood and up to bucket dump
  • Pantograph windshield wiper
  • Large front windshield screen
  • Large LCD gauge cluster screen
  • Ample legroom
  • Differential lock button on loader lever
  • Large opening windows
  • Solid roof cab
  • LED brake lights

Ride Control

The optional Ride Control System smoothes the ride in all conditions, including load and carry, highway roading or simply moving around the job site. The result can be increased operator comfort, potentially reducing operator fatigue, and improved material retention.

Premium Gauge Cluster

Bright and large LCD screen makes it easy to monitor machine operation and settings. LED indicator lights and audible alarms allow the machine to clearly communicate with the operator.

Safety Getting in and out of the Cab

New longer grab handles and ergonomic step placement makes it easy to maintain three points of contact when getting in and out of the cab.

Backhoe Controls

Mechanical controls provide the feedback operators look for in trenching applications. Low effort hydraulics reduce operator fatigue while maintaining performance. Optional joystick controls allow the operator to customize the pod location and control pattern.

Power Train

Cat Engine

The Cat C3.4B engine delivers 55 kW (68 hp) and meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards, without the addition of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF). Engine features include:

  • Diesel oxidation catalyst
  • Diesel particulate filter
  • Limited operator interaction


The standard power shuttle transmission provides four speeds forward and reverse. Hydraulically shifted clutches allow on-the-go direction and travel speed shifts.

  • Hydraulic proportional control valves deliver smooth speed and directional shifts.
  • Four Wheel Drive option improves mobility and loader performance in poor underfoot conditions and can be activated on-the-go.

Brake Mode Selector

Brake mode selector switch has three positions: two wheel drive, two wheel drive with all wheel braking and four wheel drive. Two wheel drive with all wheel braking provides better tire life while roading and engages the front axle when brakes are applied for improved braking performance. Brake mode selector is included in the 4WD package.

Advanced Hydraulics

Load Sensing Hydraulics

Closed center hydraulic system matches pressure and flow to application demand. Whether you’re in full trenching mode or digging around delicate services, you remain in control. In applications such as production trenching where speed is important, the system will provide the flow needed to get the job done quickly and efficiently. The load sensing hydraulic system provides:

  • Better fuel efficiency
  • Quieter operation
  • Reduced component wear
  • Cooler hydraulic temperatures
  • Full forces at any engine speed

Flow Sharing Valves

Specifically tuned hydraulic valves allow for the multifunction of hydraulic components, without machine manipulation. Hydraulic fluid is shared between implements so that operation isn’t interrupted.

Hydraulic Lines

Combination two way and one way flow hydraulic lines add versatility to the machine. By simply changing the lever position, the machine can efficiently run either style hydro mechanical tool.

Backhoe Performance


The excavator-style boom is built for optimum performance and durability. The curved design provides added clearance when digging over obstacles or loading trucks. The narrow boom enhances the viewing area to the bucket and the trench throughout the operating range. More robust swing casting and double clevis design improves durability and reliability.


Serrated edges on the stick provide improved material clamping for clearing and demolition applications. The optional extendible stick (E-stick) increases reach and dig depth by approximately 1.2 m (4 ft).


Thumb mounting provisions are standard on every Cat Backhoe Loader for added machine versatility. Cat hydraulic thumbs are available for even greater versatility. Mechanical thumbs are also available through your Cat dealer.

Loader Performance

Front loader arms deliver more reach, dump height and breakout.

Single Tilt

The standard single tilt loader linkage features strong lift and breakout forces for solid performance in backfilling and truck loading applications with pin-on buckets. The 415F2 is equipped with either a general purpose or multi-purpose pin-on bucket to meet your specific needs.


The return-to-dig system reduces loading cycle times by bringing the loader bucket back to the dig position with an easy pull of the lever. By the time the loader bucket is at ground level, the bucket is angled correctly for the next load or cut.

Work Tools

Backhoe Work Tools

Increase the versatility of your machine with the large selection of backhoe attachments:

  • Buckets – Standard Duty, Heavy Duty, Heavy Duty Rock, Soil Excavation, Coral and Ditch Cleaning
  • Cold Planers
  • Hammers
