962M Wheel Loader

962M Wheel Loader

The new 962M Wheel Loader has a U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV ACERT™ engine equipped with a combination of proven electronic, fuel, air and aftertreatment components. Applying proven technologies systematically and strategically lets us meet our customer’s high expectations for productivity, fuel efficiency, reliability and service life. Deep system integration results in reduced emissions, improved performance and improved fuel economy without interrupting machine performance making it seamless to operators. M Series Loaders are 10% more fuel efficient than the K Series Loaders and up to 25% more efficient than the H Series Loaders they replace. (Fuel efficiency is measured in mass of material moved per volume of fuel burned. Average efficiency improvement as tested and analyzed for an average composite cycle and stand configuration with variations per comparable model with and without economy mode active. Factors influence result variation such as, but not limited to, machine configuration, operator technique, machine application, climate, etc.) Aggregate Handler and other optional configurations are available. (Optional configuration and equipment may vary from region to region. Consult your Caterpillar representative for further details.)
