CH1100F Overview

The MultiDocker CH1100F is built to give you the highest production with the lowest ownership and operating cost in its class. With a powerful, reliable and efficient C15 ACERT engine and with hydraulics featuring the new Adaptive Control System (ACS) which better matches hydraulic response to joystick movement, you can move tons of material all day, every day, with precision and efficiency.

The CH1100F is based on the proven CAT 374F MH, augmented by MultiDocker’s innovative solutions for the world’s most challenging material handling jobs. Since it’s based on Caterpillar components, you get the world-class reliability and service support you count on. And with a reach of up to 81′ and a lift capacity of up to 19.5 Tons, no job is too big.

The CH1100F can handle any kind of operation: scrap metal, pulp logs, sawn wood, timber, chips, pellets, bags, aggregates, and most kinds of bulk and general cargo.

Port Line Cabin Option

The Port Line Cabin is an option for the CM and CF cabin solutions, and features a larger interior for increased comfort.

– Panoramic view
– Negative windshield angle
– Extra training seat
– Larger floor windows
– Additional vibration damping
– Boosted climate control
– Full standing height inside
– Plug & Play upgrade
Cab Design: The cabin has been designed to be spacious, quiet and comfortable for the operator, assuring high productivity throughout the entire workday. Switches are conveniently located for easy access. The monitor is located to provide excellent visibility and access.

Seat: The seat provides a variety of adjustments, including fore/aft, height and weight to suit the operator. Adjustable armrests and a retractable seat belt are also included. For additional comfort, a new heated air suspension seat is available.

Skylight: An enlarged skylight with sunshade provides excellent visibility and good ventilation.

Hydraulic Activation Control Lever: The hydraulic activation control lever deactivates all hydraulic functions during engine start-up, and prevents unintentional machine movements.

Climate Control: Positive filtered ventilation with a pressurized cab comes standard. Fresh air or re-circulated air can be selected with a switch on the left console.

Monitor: The monitor has functions to display the machine, maintenance, diagnostic and prognostic information. The angle of the monitor can be adjusted to face the operator and prevent sun glare. The monitor also functions as display screen for the rear view camera that comes as standard on the MultiDocker.

Cabin Safety System: The machine is equipped with an electronic safety system with motion control. The system prevents from collision between the cabin and the work tool. The system also controls the load in the machine to avoid overload.

Cab Exterior: The exterior design uses thick steel tubing along the bottom perimeter of the cab, improving resistance fatigue and vibration. The cabin has an overhead protection frame (F.O.P.S = falling object protective system) bolted directly to the top of the cabin.

Cab Mounts: The cabin shell is attached to the frame with viscous rubber cabin mounts, which dampen vibrations and sound levels while enhancing operator comfort.

Wipers: Parallel wiper, including a washer nozzle is mounted below the cab windshield; this optimizes the operator’s viewing area and offers continuous and intermittent modes.

Windows: To maximize visibility, all glass is affixed directly to the cab. The cabin solution CM8000 has a floor window as standard. This gives the operator the possibility to view the working area underneath the cabin.

Consoles: Re-designed consoles feature a simple, functional design to reduce operator fatigue, ease of switch operation and excellent visibility. Both consoles have attached armrests and allow the height of the armrests to be adjusted.

Standard Cab Equipment: To enhance operator comfort and productivity, the cab includes a lighter, drink holder, coat hook, service meter, FM Radio, literature holder, magazine rack and storage compartment. The cab can be equipped with optional 12 volt converter and up to 12V – 7amp electrical sockets to provide additional electrical resources.

Sound: The operator sound level measured according to the procedures specified in ISO 6396:2008.

Monitor Display Screen: The monitor is a full colour 400×234 pixels LCD graphic display. The Master Caution Lamp blinks ON and OFF when one of the critical conditions below occurs:

– Engine oil pressure low
– Coolant temperature high
– Hydraulic oil temperature high

Under normal conditions or the default condition, the monitor display screen is divided into four areas: clock and throttle dial, gauge, event display and multi-information display.

Gauge Display: Three analogue gauges, fuel level, hydraulic oil temperature and coolant temperature, are displayed in this area.

Multi-information Display: This area is reserved for displaying information that is convenient for the operator. The “Cat” logo mark is displayed when no information is available to display.

Operator Gain/Response: This is used to suit the operators’ preferences or application.

– Quicker, for fast response and more production
– Slower, for more precision
– Three preset settings with 21 move available

Electronic Joysticks: Electronic joysticks provide features not possible with hydraulic pilot valves:

– Eliminate pilot lines in cab for quieter operation
– Adjustable gain/response

Depending on the customer’s needs, the MultiDocker CH1100 can be delivered in various standard undercarriage configurations with crawler tracks. Other options are the rail track fitted gantry undercarriage or pedestal. It’s also possible to have the cargo handler installed onboard a vessel or a barge.

Due to the unique module system we can tailor the height and width of the undercarriage raiser, the length of the track frames and the width of the flat shoes to meet special requirements in regards of weight, ground loadings, available space at the site etc.

Sealed and Lubricated Rollers: Track rollers and idlers are sealed and lubricated for excellent service life.

Idler Guards and Track Guides: Idler guards and centre track guides used to maintain alignment are standard.

Track shoes: The flat shoe’s outer edges are curved and chamfered on the outer edges to further smooth transportation as well as prevent unnecessary damages to the ground. Being such a large material handler, the MultiDocker flat shoes cause very little effect to the ground surfaces. Due to the design of the MultiDocker bended flat shoes, they are very kind to all types of road surfaces, concrete, blocks or tarmac.

Track: The MultiDocker cargo handler comes with grease lubricated tracks as standard. The track links are assembled and sealed with grease to decrease internal bushing wear, reduce travel noise and extend service life thus lowering operating costs.

Travel Motor: Two-speed axial piston hydraulic motors provide the drive power and automatic speed selection when the high-speed position is selected. This enables the machine to automatically change between computer controlled high and low speeds depending on drawbar-pull requirements.

Final Drives: The final drives are the three-stage reduction planetary type. This design provides a complete drive/brake unit that is compact and delivers excellent performance and reliability.
