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.
