Cat 966K and 972K Wheel Loaders
May 16, 2011

Caterpillar’s 966K and 972K Wheel Loaders, feature new designs and engines certified to meet Tier 4 Interim emissions standards in the United States and Stage IIIB regulations in the European Union. The new loaders, which offer high productivity and excellent fuel efficiency, have a new operator station, new electro-hydraulic steering with either joystick or steering wheel control, Performance Series Buckets and a more efficient drive train. A new CatC9.3 ACERT engine powers both machines. At 1800 rpm, it delivers peak net power of 267 horsepower (199 kilowatts) on the 966K and 288 horsepower (215 kilowatts) on the 972K. Designed to accommodate buckets ranging in size from 3.25 to 13.00 cubic yards (2.50 to 9.90 cubic meters), the loaders work productively and economically in high-hour, high-volume applications.
