In 2007, the Cat 993K wheel loader introduced a new size class in the Caterpillar line. The 25-ton (23-metric-ton) loader capacity matches with the Cat 777 and 785 off-highway trucks. The loader features Z-bar linkage, hydraulics and power train. Its increased capacity results in a 15- to 20-percent improvement in productivity compared to the model it replaced, the 992G. The new loader also features the Cat C32 ACERT engine for increased performance and US EPA Tier 2/EU Stage IIa emissions compliance. It produces net power of 950 horsepower (708 kW).
