Company: Caterpillar Inc
With the continued watch on price of fuel and customer™s requirements for optimized performance, Caterpillar® has a proprietary Fuel Management System on the 988H Wheel Loader. The 988H Fuel Management System was found to have a 10%-15% fuel savings advantage over 988 machines without this system and with minimal changes to current productivity.
As history has shown the 988H is known for its leading performance but understanding the need to lower customer owning and operating cost, as well as allow customer application flexibility, Caterpillar has designed the 988H Fuel Management System to allow customers to choose three different modes, full power, balanced, or max fuel savings.
In full power mode, today™s current machine configuration, the 988H maintains full 2120 rpm power. This mode makes no change to the machine and maintains the leading performance that the 988H has shown in this size class. For customers, who™s main goal is production not fuel this is the setting for their application.
