Caterpillar Designed Components

Components used to build Cat Wheel Loaders are designed and manufactured to Caterpillar quality standards to ensure maximum performance even in extreme operating conditions. Heavy duty components reduce the risk of premature wear thereby increasing uptime and reduce operating costs over the life of the machine.

Monitoring Programs

Monitoring product health is key to maintaining reliability of any equipment. Many programs offered by your Cat dealer make the tracking of your machine health quick and easy. These programs include Product Link™*, VisionLink™, and S∙O∙SSM Services. * Not all programs are available in all areas. See your Caterpillar dealer for details.

Renowned Cat Dealer Support

From helping you choose the right machine to knowledgeable support, Cat dealers provide the best when it comes to sales and service. Manage costs with preventive maintenance programs like Scheduled Oil Sampling (S·O·S) analysis or comprehensive Customer Support Agreements. Stay productive with best-in-class parts availability. Cat dealers can even help you with operator training to help boost your profits. And when it’s time for machine rebuild, your Cat dealer can help you save even more with Genuine Cat Reman parts, which have the same reliability and warranty as new parts at 40 to 70 percent of the new parts' prices on power train and hydraulic parts.


The H Series features many components which leverage product designs that have delivered reliable and durable machines for generations.

Better Built to Meet Your Needs.

Z-Bar Linkage

The proven Z-bar linkage with Performance Series Buckets offer excellent penetration into the pile, high breakout forces, good roll back angles and faster dig times. The results are improved tire life, superior fuel efficiency and exceptional production capabilities; all helping to enable a sustainable solution for your business.

C7 ACERT Engine

The Cat C7 engine with ACERT Technology maintains engine performance, efficiency and durability while dramatically reducing emissions. Electronic fuel injection is provided through the well-proven Caterpillar hydraulically actuated, electronically controlled unit injection (HEUI™) system. A wastegate turbocharger, equipped with a titanium wheel for improved durability, combined with air-to-air aftercooling provides consistent high horsepower with increased altitude capability.


The axles are designed to handle extreme applications resulting in reliable performance and extended life. The front axle is rigidly mounted to the frame in order to withstand internal torque loads and still maintain support for the wheel loader. The rear axle can oscillate to ±13 degrees helping to ensure all four wheels stay on the ground providing stability even in the roughest terrain.

Work Smart and Move More.


The legendary Cat planetary power shift transmission is updated with new shift logic. The downshift from 2 to 1 forward is now based upon torque requirements versus ground speed. This enables operators to use the fully automatic 1-4 mode which saves fuel and improves productivity and comfort. Speed shifts, both up shifts and downshifts have been dramatically improved for improved acceleration, speed on ramps and operator comfort.

Load Sensing Hydraulics

The 950H features a load sensing hydraulic system that automatically adjusts to operating conditions to provide only the hydraulic flow required by the implement for improved fuel efficiency. A new hydraulic valve has been implemented providing improved service access and machine weight distribution. Operators will notice enhanced ease of operation, more rimpull into the pile and an increase in lift force.

Constant Net Horsepower

The Cat C7 engine is electronically configured to provide constant net horsepower at full parasitic load, enhancing productivity and improving fuel efficiency.

On-Demand Fan

With electronic control of the variable speed on-demand fan, temperature levels of the engine coolant, transmission oil, hydraulic oil and air inlet manifold are constantly monitored. This data is used to control and maintain fan speed at the level necessary to maintain normal system temperatures. Controlled fan speed improves fuel efficiency, lowers noise levels and reduces radiator plugging.

Ride Control

The optional Ride Control System improves ride, performance and load retention when traveling over rough terrain. Operators gain confidence moving at higher speeds in load and carry operations decreasing cycle times and increasing productivity. Ride Control also reduces loads induced by travel over rough terrain and can extend the life of structures and drive line components.

Engine Idle Management System

The Engine Idle Management System (EIMS) maximizes fuel efficiency by reducing engine rpm after a selected amount of time. This gives customers flexibility in managing idle speeds for specific application requirements. Four idle control rpm levels are available.

Engine Idle Shutdown

The Engine Idle Shutdown feature automatically shuts down the engine after the machine has been idling for a predetermined amount of time. This saves you fuel and reduces hour accumulation on your machine.
