Cat 993K Wheel Loader
October 24, 2012

Design refinements for the Cat 993K wheel loader are aimed at better serving mining and quarry customers  by further enhancing the 993K’s ability to deliver reliable, low-cost production with durability and safety. Now available with either a Tier 4 Final or Tier 2 Equivalent Cat® C32 engine, the 993K incorporates new engine control and power train features that boost performance and reduce fuel consumption, while the new Cycle Timer feature adds efficiency to loading operations. The now standard Deluxe Service Center greatly simplifies routine service, and operator convenience and safety features include new controls and an available powered access system. The updated 993K fuel consumption is reduced as much as 10 percent, achieved by lowering rated speed and equipping the machine with Auto Idle Kickdown (reduces throttle-lock speed after a set idling interval) and Engine Idle Shutdown (shuts down the engine after extended periods of idling).
