Wheel loaders: Caterpillar

November 2009 Vol. 64 No. 11

The Caterpillar 938H wheel loader and IT38H with integrated tool carrier linkage feature the Cat C6.6 engine with ACERT Technology for responsive power and low emissions.

The new engine, differential lock system, load sensing hydraulics and increased lift and tilt forces deliver high performance in digging and material handling applications while limiting engine emissions to meet EPA Tier 3 off-highway emissions regulations and worldwide emissions standards.

The Cat Fusion Wheel Loader Coupler System design pulls the coupler and work tool closer to the wheel loader for nearly full machine performance with the expanded versatility and flexibility of a coupler. The patented design moves the center of gravity closer to the machine, yet the coupler enables the loader to conveniently pick up and use a wide range of work tools. Also, the open frame design gives the operator excellent sight lines to the work tool and load. catrequests@cat.com
