New Compact Wheel Loader Series
DELIVERING ADDED PERFORMANCE, NEW FEATURES, AND NEW OPTIONS.
Cat® Compact Wheel Loaders provide superior performance and versatility to help you get the job done right. Built to the same tough standards as the larger Cat Wheel Loaders, the more flexible Compact Wheel Loader series gives you the access to unique configuration, allowing you to optimize your machine to be better equipped for your industry and job site requirements. See this new series at work below.
Engine. The new Cat C3.6 engine is specifically designed for Cat products. The new engine has the same torque performance as the previous Cat 4.4, and also provides a modest increase in rated gross power, increasing from 101 to 111 horsepower (74 to 82 kW) for the 910 and 914, and from 117 to 122 horsepower (86 to 90 kW) for the 920. Caterpillar estimates up to 5 percent gains in fuel-efficiency with the new engine, and the C3.6 meets EU Stage V and U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards. Fuel-tank capacity also is increased by 2.9 gallons (11 liters) for the new loaders, allowing extended work cycles.
Reversing Fan. In operating environments where airborne debris can be pulled into cooling cores and restrict airflow, possibly resulting in overheating, the new reversing-fan option can assist in keeping cooling cores clean for more efficient temperature control. The reversing fan has a three-position rocker switch in the cab, allowing the system to be turned off, to operate in an automatic mode, or to be momentarily activated by the operator. In the automatic mode, the fan is factory-set to reverse direction for 10 seconds every 10 minutes. Frequency and duration of automatic reversing can be changed via the Cat Electronic Technician, allowing frequency to be adjusted from 5- to 240-minute intervals and duration from 5 to 20 seconds.
Kickouts. Rotary Sensor Kickouts are now an option for the 910 and 914, and the new fork and bucket settings of this system, along with cylinder snubbing, are features now included in the kickout system for the 920. Controlled by four buttons in the cab, the new system can be adjusted to accommodate the kickouts required by two different work tools. Once the position of the attachment is moved to the desired location, a two-second press of the appropriate button programs that function, which is recalled by using detents in the joystick. All functions can easily be used together after setting the tool to the desired recall locations. Correct use of the kickouts has been shown to save up to 20% of the cutting edge life of a bucket.
Fusion Coupler. The 914 can now be equipped with the Caterpillar Fusion Coupler System to provide enhanced durability and attachment compatibility. The Fusion Coupler features an advanced wedging mechanism to create a tight, rattle-free fit, eliminating coupler-to-attachment movement and subsequent wear. Wedges in the coupler pull the attachment tight to the machine in two directions (in and down), and constant hydraulic pressure is applied on the wedges to ensure a consistent, tight fit, providing enhanced tool control and increased productivity. The Fusion Coupler interface is used on other Cat loaders for shared use of forks and hydro-mechanical work tools, such as brooms and snowblowers.
Auxiliary Hydraulic Lines. New auxiliary lines are available (from mid-lift arm down to the coupler) for all the new loader models when the three- or four-valve option is selected. This feature allows ease of use for more work tools within the Caterpillar portfolio.
Rear Waste Guards. A new rear guard is available for the 914 and 920 models used in harsh environments that can generate blowing debris, such as waste-handling and certain industrial applications. The guarding is purpose-built to protect major components and systems, resulting in less time for cleaning and higher production rates.
LED Lighting. Efficient, high-illumination LED lights are now available as an option for both working/roading lights and under-hood-service lights. LED lighting has a truer, cleaner color that helps better illuminate the work area when operating in low-light conditions. In addition, performing under-hood service in poor ambient light is made easier with task-focused LED lighting. Unlike conventional LED roading lights, Cat LED roading lights have a unique resistor bank built into the body to keep the lamp assembly warm enough to melt snow and ice, resulting in added efficiency when operating in such conditions.
USB Ports. In-cab USB power ports are part of the design for the new 910, 914, and 920. For the operator’s convenience, these ports provide low-voltage power for charging cell phone and other compatible electronic devices.
BRAND NEW MACHINE. BRAND NEW FEATURES.
Cat Optimized Z-Bar Loader Linkage. Combines the digging efficiency of a traditional Z-bar with tool carrier capabilities for great performance and versatility. With parallel lift and high tilt forces throughout the working range you can safely and confidently handle loads with precise control.
Work Tools. Cat exclusive, Performance Series Buckets, as well as high visibility pallet forks. These tools enhance productivity and legacy coupler tools such as brooms, grapple buckets, multi-purpose buckets and other work tools remain compatible.
Hydraulics and Controls. State of the art electro-hydraulic system provides low effort, fine control with fast cycle times. All-in-one joystick helps keep eyes on the work and operator can adjust machine responsiveness with the push of a button, which allows the operator to set up the machine exactly the way they want it based on the application.
Efficient, yet Powerful. High full turn tipping loads, powerful breakout forces and increased engine power delivers a balanced solution for all applications.
Tuned Drivetrain. Smooth shifting and powerful acceleration is matched with modulated hydrostatic braking in the inching/braking pedal, creating a rhythm for material moving. Operator tunes between smooth or aggressive shifting with the push of a button.
Operator Station. All around visibility is further enhanced with the availability
of a rearview camera. The deluxe cab ensures operator comfortwith a heated, air suspension seat and easy to use controls. Available features such as Implement and Hystat Aggressiveness, Ride Control, Lift and Tilt Kickouts, Fork/Bucket Mode and Rimpull Control allow the operator to customize the machine via a soft touch keypad.
Serviceability. Extended service intervals and excellent service access make daily checks quick and easy allowing you to get to work sooner.
Standard Fuel Savings Features. On Demand Cooling Fan, and Auto Engine Idle Shutdown, make the 920 both powerful and fuel efficient.
