Wheel Loaders: Caterpillar

Caterpillar’s 966M, 966M XE, 972M and 972M XE Wheel Loaders have EPA Tier 4 Final ACERT engines equipped with a combination of proven electronic, fuel, air and after-treatment components. XE technology results in 25 percent lower fuel consumption on average compared to machines with traditional torque converters, simplifies operation with a two-pedal design and provides high performance at all speeds. The 972M XE excels at truck loading and is a 3-pass match for many of the larger on-highway trucks used in North America. The 966M and 972M powertrains have also been improved with the addition of lock-up clutch torque converters.
