Caterpillar's new loaders boost output

Caterpillar's new range of compact wheel loaders promise to boost productivity in industrial, landscaping and road construction applications.

Each of the new compact wheel loaders make use of a high-performance Z-bar loader design, optimised for visibility, strength and versatile attachment usage. A high-speed option, which enables a speed increase from the standard 20 kph to 35 kph along with an optional ride control system smoothes rides at higher speeds.

Each loader also features heavy-duty axles, with outboard planetary reduction. The optional 100% differential lock in both axles can be easily engaged on the move to allow travel over rough terrain without getting stuck. The 906H has a lower overall cab height than the 907H and 908H allowing access into many buildings.

To enable trouble-free operations, the 906H, the 907H and the 908H come with heavy-duty engine wiring, ensuring great electrical durability. The water-resistant sealed connectors prevent dust and moisture interfering with the electrics. In addition, multicoloured wiring has been used to ease diagnosis and fault finding, he adds.

The H-series compact wheel loaders will be available in Europe, Africa and the Middle East starting at the end of 2007.
