Standing by

It can and has been done but there are a lot of part that need to be swapped to do the conversion. I will need some time to gather more information. Then it will be up to you if it is worth the expense or just going with a high flow machine already set up.

Cat hydraulic arrangement number on the Standard 287B is(###) ###-####br />Cat hydraulic arrangement number on the High Flow 287B is(###) ###-####br />
Cat says you Can not USE any of the parts interchangeable

This will be a costly swap over as you would be changing most everything and some ECM reprogramming.

The High Flow XPS option is factory installed only. There is not
a XPS kit.

This is all I can find, you will need to convert your machine. I did not see which ECM will be needed and if it will need programming. That might be another charge. All of this work, it maybe cheaper to buy an XPS model unfortunately.

Please take a moment to rate as that is how the site credits my time helping on the site or let me know if you need more help. 5 star and bonuses are always greatly appreciated.
