Caterpillar has launched three new compact wheeled loaders as part of its ‘Next Generation equipment’ line.
The Cat 906, 907 and 908 models feature the new Cat C2.8 engine, while the hydraulics and structures have gone through an overhaul to meet demand for increased multifunctionality while powering hydromechanical tools.
According to Caterpillar, “the upgraded drive and powertrain deliver faster roading speeds” and improved “tractive effort” compared to Cat’s previous M-series loaders.
The new Stage V-compliant C2.8 engine provides 55.7kW (74 hp) of power and delivers 13% more torque. As part of the new cab design the Next Generation control monitor offers a range of real-time machine operating information.
The three models, which can travel up to 25mph (40km/h) and feature a reengineered operator station, will be available globally.
There are also new features to regulate temperatures in dusty environments, the manufacturer adds. “When working in dusty environments, the new reversing-fan option assists in keeping cooling cores clean for more efficient temperature control. Through an in-cab soft-touch button, the system can be turned off, set to operate in an automatic mode or momentarily activated by the operator.”
In addition, an optional Cat 908 high-lift configuration is available for customers in agricultural, industrial and waste markets.
