Beyond standard loading configurations, Caterpillar is offering customized versions of its large wheel loader models. With an operating weight of about 110,000 pounds, the 501-net-horsepower 988H provides the platform for special application versions designed specifically to handle large blocks of stone in quarries, logs in millyards, and slag in steel mills. The 988H Block Handler Arrangement, for example, features special application linkage, larger tilt and lift cylinders, additional counterweight, and modified third-valve hydraulics for quick-coupler operation.
