The Caterpillar 436B loader backhoe was introduced in 1992 in England as the replacement for the Caterpillar 436 II. Production began in the USA two years later.

[edit] Features

The 436B has a Cat 3054 turbocharged engine producing 84 flywheel horsepower (FWHP). It comes standard with a thermal starting aid, self-adjusting brakes, a modified operator’s compartment, and a hydraulic pump that delivers fluid at a rate of 41 gallons (155 L) per minute (GPM) at a system pressure of 3,000 pounds per square inch (PSI) (20,684 kPa).

The 436B was manufactured in England, with a 6MJ serial number prefix, and in the USA, with a 7FL prefix.
