On Caterpillar’s new 906H and 908H compact wheel loaders, a skid steer loader-style quick coupler is a standard feature that accommodates most Cat skid-steer work tools. Differential locks that can be engaged on the roll and Z-bar loader linkage are also standard. The optional high-speed configuration increases top travel speed to 22 miles per hour. A Cat C3.4 engine powers each of the wheel loaders. It is rated at 70 net horsepower in the 906H and 80 horsepower in the 908H. Enhanced hydraulics increase 906H lift capacity 15 percent and rated operating load for the bucket on the 906H (1.2 cubic yards) increased 7 percent.
