Available on new 988H loaders and can be retrofitted to 988H units in the field
Three different operating modes: full power mode maintains the leading performance in its size class that the 988H has shown; balanced mode offers fuel savings of 10 to 15 percent in truck loading applications and keeps production within a few percent of maximum; and max fuel savings mode lowers engine speed even more during all segments of a cycle except digging
Cat's 980M and 982M wheel loaders feature deep system integration for reduced emissions, improved performance and improved fuel economy. This deep system integration combined with axle and hydraulic improvements result in 10% lower fuel consumption on average compared to the 980K models.
Cat's 966M and 972M wheel loaders include new features as well as axle and hydraulic improvements that result in 10% lower fuel consumption on average compared to the K Series models. Both wheel loaders are offered in XE Advanced Powertrain models which produce 25% lower fuel consumption on average compared to machines with traditional torque converters. The XE models are also simplified with a two-pedal design.
The Hyundai Tier 4 Interim HL730-9A Wheel Loader features a 128-hpCummins engine that is electronically controlled for optimum fuel to air ratio and clean, efficient combustion. The combo of a high pressure common rail system and advanced in-cylinder combustion technology allows for increased power, improved transient response and reduced fuel consumption.
Like all new Z7 wheel loaders, the 70Z7 retains IntelliTech functions such as the IntelliDig system, balancing rimpull force and hydraulic digging force to match conditions. It also includes the QuickCycle function and FlexShift feature, which matches shift points to the actual working conditions
The six models of Caterpillar's new M Series medium-sized Cat wheel loaders include the brand new 982M and an XE version, with the fuel efficiency of a CVT transmission, of the 972M. Cat claims the M Series improves fuel efficiency 10 percent with new lock-up clutch torque converters, split-flow transmission oil systems with multi-viscosity oil, and hydraulic and axle-lube systems.
The Hyundai HL740-9A wheel loader features many improvements from previous models including a Tier 4 Interim/Stage IIIB 116-hp Cummins QSB6.7 engine which features advanced electronic controls and a self-diagnostic system. The high pressure common rail system and advanced in-cylinder combustion technology improves the power and reduces the fuel consumption of the wheel loader.
Kawasaki's new 115Z7 wheel loader is one of only two wheel loaders in this size class with standard joystick steering. The 531-hp loader (powered by a 16-liter Isuzu diesel) employs features such as power modes, efficient acceleration, IntelliDig, lockup clutch, auto idle shutdown, and load-sensing open-center hydraulics to improve fuel economy.
Hyundai's Tier 4 Interim HL757-9A wheel loader includes a larger, redesigned cab, rounded front glass and larger door glass for improved visibility from all angles, increased cooling and heating capacity with fully automatic climate control, and tilting and telescopic steering.
Kawasaki's redesigned 92Z7 loader features a 286-net-hp Hino (Toyota) E13C-VV 13-liter diesel engine that meets Tier 4i emissions regulations with the use of cooled exhaust gas recirculation and diesel particulate filter or exhaust filter systems.
