Caterpillar 988H Wheel Loader Fuel Management System
January 9, 2008

The Caterpillar Cat 988H Wheel Loaders Fuel Management System delivers solid productivity and fuel savings of as much as 15 percent in truck loading and even more in load and carry operations. By lowering engine speed during all but the digging portion of each cycle, the proprietary system minimizes impact on productivity while gaining significant fuel savings. The system is available on new 988H loaders and can be retrofitted to 988H loaders already working in the field. For maximum flexibility the system offers three different operating modes: full power, balanced, and max fuel savings. The system allows the operator to quickly adjust to changing production demands by moving a single switch mounted in the cab.
