CAT® WHEEL LOADERS: Get the Job Done—and Then Some

Simple loading and stockpiling? Aggregate handling? Maximizing payloads? Whatever your work demands, you’ll find a Cat® Wheel Loader that gets it done—with the performance, reliability and technology options you need. Purpose built for your jobs, our newest models offer aggressive digging, short cycle times, smooth rides and great fuel economy. And you only need to turn on the integrated Cat Connect technologies to jumpstart your productivity, cut costs and keep moving forward.

Fuel efficiency

M Series engine, emissions, hydraulics, drive train and cooling system components are deeply integrated at the systems level. So right from the start they’re designed to work together at maximum efficiency. The result? High-performance loaders that use up to 10% less fuel than their predecessors.

Next gen hydraulics

The M Series brought big improvements in hydraulics. New valve and pump designs boost performance and responsiveness. An integrated ride control system with two accumulators improves productivity over a larger payload range. And the mono-block main valve has 40% fewer leak points for higher reliability.

Superior traction

Better traction means more productivity, especially in poor ground conditions. We improved traction on M Series loaders with a standard disc-type differential lock on the front axle. It can be engaged and disengaged manually—on the go. Fully automatic front and rear differential locks are also available.

Fast digging

Nothing beats a Performance Series Bucket for quick, efficient digging and loading. With its unique shape and geometry, it drives deep into the pile, fills fast and retains more material. It also allows better line of sight to the work area so operators spend less time in the pile, saving fuel and tire costs.

Comfortable work environment

A day in the cab doesn’t have to be punishing. Board an
M Series loader and discover a workplace with excellent all-around visibility and low sound and vibration levels. Low-effort controls and an intuitive touch screen display make it easier for operators to work hard all shift long.

“The 972M has proven to increase our fuel efficiency by 23%.”


Factory integrated systems

M Series loaders are built with core information systems that track and report fuel use, hours, idle time and location. For more advanced machine control and monitoring capabilities, Cat loaders can be equipped with additional sensors and systems, enabling a suite of Cat Connect solutions that optimize safety, efficiency and productivity.

On-board payload weighing

Cat PAYLOAD technology is fully integrated, so you just need to activate it to start reaping the benefits. Cat Production Measurement, which brings payload tracking to an in-cab display, helps operators deliver exact loads efficiently and confidently. A monthly subscription provides valuable site and project data—fuel use, loading/roading vs. idle time, cycle segmentation and more—that you can use to optimize productivity and lower costs.

equipment management

Cat Connect LINK technologies offer a precise way to manage productivity, utilization, uptime and more. ProductLink™, a deeply integrated onboard system, captures critical data while you work. VisionLink®, a web-based interface, lets you access the data wirelessly from any device and use it for fact-based decision making.

Intelligent safety

Cat Connect DETECT technologies enhance operator awareness, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. A standard rear-vision camera on M Series loaders provides a panoramic view behind the machine during reverse travel. And an optional second display provides a full-time rear view.

Fuel-Saving Transmission Design

The 966M XE and 972M XE feature a continuously variable transmission that allows the engine to run in an efficient RPM range regardless of ground speed. That not only boosts fuel efficiency up to 25% over a standard
M Series model and 35% over a K Series machine—it also makes for easier operation and a smoother ride.
