CATERPILLAR has launched several new design enhancements for its small-wheel loader line – CAT 926M, 930M and 938M models – to improve attachment visibility, operator comfort and machine performance.

The line’s new fusion quick coupler substantially improves visibility to the attachment in material handling applications. With its electro-hydraulic coupler application system activated from inside the cab, the single-piece cast coupler frame with relocated actuation cylinders increases attachment visibility through the coupler by up to 85 per cent.

Increasing versatility, an improved fusion coupler carriage for fork attachments is now available with a new carriage designed to enhance attachment visibility and to work in conjunction with the new high-visibility cast fusion coupler. The line’s new adjustable material handling arm delivers increased visibility, simple adjustments and easy transport with a general-purpose bucket.

A new cast torque tube design for the new CAT 930M and 938M models significantly improves operator visibility to the attachment when it’s in a raised position. The new standard lift arms offer 100 per cent more fork tip/heel visibility and 50 per cent more bucket edge visibility to improve operating efficiency.

The company is also highlighting the new factory-built mulcher, which has been designed with operator safety and comfort as priorities.

The CAT D3K2 mulcher combines the solid foundation of the D3K2 dozer with the ruggedly designed CAT HM518 mulcher to take on a mix of small-to-medium-diameter material. More info at
