The 980 series of medium-sized Caterpillar Wheel Loaders have been developed to include in-built technologies to maximise fuel efficiency without compromising on performance. This technology facilitates remote data access to monitor where the machine is located, how it is being used and also whether it requires servicing. These machines, including the 980C, 980G, 980H and 980M series models, have CAT C13 ACERT engines which make them extremely reliable and suitable for use in a range of applications.
This series of wheel loaders are designed to enjoy the best operating system. The touchscreen display minimises distraction, enabling drivers to stay on task. The joystick steering also helps to reduce fatigue thanks to its precision control, helping applications to be more effective, as well as safer. The ride control system also makes the ride particularly smooth and reduces the number of vibrations that occur during operation.
The 980 series has several important features that ensure driver and operator safety. The cab is easily accessible as a result of its wide door, which has an option for remote opening and stepped access. For maximum visibility, there are large mirrors and cameras with rear vision to ensure that all surroundings can be carefully monitored.
