Cat® 982M Wheel Loaders take efficiency to the next level

The 982M wheel loader is 10% more fuel efficient than its highly productive K Series predecessor and a great choice for loading larger on-highway trucks (2-pass match). Design changes in the frames, linkage, hydraulics, engine power and power train extend the application range of the 982M to sand and gravel, earth-bank excavation and even face loading in shot rock applications. The 982M also has longer standard lift arms so it can easily load rail cars. With a full range of buckets, work tools and a special Aggregate Handler configuration, the 982M can be the ideal choice for the work you do. Put these new features to work.
