The Caterpillar 904H compact wheel loader provides a productive combination of power, versatility and operator amenities. With 52 net horsepower (39 kW) and an operating weight of 9,900 pounds (4490 kg), the 904H replaces the popular 904B. The new loader features a new engine, new axles, articulated steering, two-speed hydrostatic drive, powerful Z-bar loader linkage, universal coupler (compatible with skid-steer-loader work tools), new operator’s station and fresh styling”including a new hood, counterweight and non-metallic fenders. Designed for reduced exhaust emissions, the 904H uses the turbocharged MHI S4Q2 diesel engine, which meets Interim Tier 4 regulations. The new engine powers a closed loop, single path hydrostatic transmission that works in combination with a frame mounted gear box and mechanical axles. The newly designed axles provide more ground clearance and can be equipped with optional locking differentials to help the 904H power through adverse ground conditions.
