The new Caterpillar 953D and 963D track loaders feature a completely new load-sensing, electro-hydraulic implement system. The implement pump provides only the required flow to the work tool and lift arms, allowing more power for the tracks when needed and increasing fuel efficiency. The new electro-hydraulic implement controls provide the operator with responsive, smooth and precise control. A choice of a joystick or two-lever control is available for bucket lift and dump. Powered by the Cat C6.6 ACERT engine, the 953D and 963D track loaders boast net output of 148 and 189 horsepower, respectively, and increases of more than 15 and 25 percent compared to the C-Series models they replace.
