Four wheel loaders -- 950H, 962H, 966H and 972H -- reflect significant enhancements, compared to their G-Series predecessors. All models use a new Tier-3-compliant, C-Series Cat diesel engine with ACERT technology; gross-horsepower ratings are 216, 230, 283 and 307 respectively. The loaders also use a load-sensing hydraulic system with a variable-displacement pump, versus the G-Series' open-center gear-pump system. Cat's Engine Idle Management System is standard, and all loaders are fitted with refined cabs and controls, including programmable in-cab kick-outs.
