Caterpillar has upgraded its small wheel loader (SWL) line that includes models 926M, 930M, and 938M. A new Fusion quick coupler improves visibility to the attachment. It has an electro-hydraulic coupler application system that is activated from the cab, and relocated actuation cylinders improve visibility by up to 85 percent.
A new cast torque tube design for the 930M and 938M loaders improves operator visibility to the attachment when it is in a raised position. The new standard lift arms offer 100 percent more fork tip/heel visibility and 50 percent more bucket edge visibility to improve operating efficiency. Updated hose routing close to the side of the lift arms help to improve visibility when equipped with the third-function auxiliary lines grouping.
The 930M wheel loader is now powered by Cat C7.1 engine that complies with Tier 4-F regulations. It provides a 5 percent more gross horsepower, 5 percent more breakout force, and 5 percent higher full-turn tip load compared to the previous 930M.
