For coverage of the products that will be on display at ConExpo-Con/Agg, visit Tier 4 Final medium wheel loaders Caterpillar introduces its new 980M and 982M wheel loaders. Equipped with Tier 4 Final ACERT engines, the units boast a combination of electronic, fuel, air, and after-treatment components. The 982M is a new all-purpose machine that will load on-highway trucks in two passes; however, design changes to the frames, linkage, horsepower, and powertrain extend its application to sand and gravel and earth bank excavation, as well as face loading in shot rock applications. It also has longer standard lift arms than the 980M, making it suitable for rail car loading. Like other M series loaders, powertrain updates have improved both performance and fuel efficiency. The hydraulic service center is virtually identical across the M series, with a consistent layout simplifying maintenance for service technicians. For operator ease, a switch has been added to the electronic service center to unlatch the door remotely, while the angle of the steps has been increased to 15 degrees, which enables operators to walk up as if they were using stairs. New roll-formed ROPS posts, larger convex mirrors, and integrated spot mirrors all improve safety. A new multipurpose touch screen simplifies operator interface with machine controls, rearview camera, and a fully integrated Cat Production Measurement system.
