New Compact Wheel Loaders From Caterpillar

Posted on March 3, 2014

Cat introduces two new compact wheel loaders: the 910K (a new model in the range) and the 914K that replace the 914G2 and IT14G2 models. ­The new models work with the digging power of conventional Z-bar machines while providing the parallel lift of an integrated tool carrier.

The cab design for both models offers expanded visibility as well as control-layout modifications. The deluxe cab offering has two side-entry doors, a low-effort electro-hydraulic joystick, suspended pedals, tilt steering wheel, an air-suspended and heated seat, and optional security keypad. The multi-function loader-control joystick also incorporates transmission and differential-lock controls and accommodates controls for two-, three- and four-valve hydraulic systems, including proportional control of auxiliary circuits.

The 910K and 914K offer the Road Feature and Load Feature packages, which include a new electronic, soft-touch keypad for control of most functions. Both models use the Cat C3.8B engine rated 92 hp, longitudinally mounted to facilitate routine maintenance and rearward visibility. A single-plane cooling system with a hydraulic fan or an optional Cat Demand Fan that operates only as required is offered.

Additional refinements have been made to the Cat Hystat system, including an implement-modulation system for adjusting hydraulic response to one of three levels and a Hystat Aggressiveness Control that provides three levels of shifting smoothness and directional-change response. Cat also integrated its machine security system with keypad access for engine starting without a specially designed key.
