A new fuel-management system on the 988H wheel loader boasts a fuel-savings advantage of up to 15 percent compared to the 988 machines without the system. Three different operating modes are available — full power, balanced or max fuel savings. Designed more for production, not fuel efficiency, full-power mode maintains the machine’s full 2,120 rpm power. When in balanced power mode, the machine is automatically set at 1,800 rpm for out-of-dig segments, also offering full power (2,120 rpm) in dig segments. Max fuel savings puts the machine into a 1,700-rpm range and reduces pump flow while outside the dig segment, also offering full rpm and pump flow in dig segments. A retrofit kit is available for all machines manufactured prior to June 2007.
