Caterpillar 966K XE Wheel Loader

October 19, 2012

Cat 966K XE wheel loader has an integrated Cat continuously variable transmission system that delivers up to a 25 percent fuel efficiency improvement over its K Series sibling. A hydraulic pump and motor (variator unit), allows for a smooth and continuous gear ratio change between engine speed and machine speed. Power is transmitted through the variator unit (versatile gear ratio) as well as a parallel mechanical gear path (highest efficiency). Power through the variator and mechanical paths are combined through a series of planetary gear sets in order maximize the transmission efficiency over a wide range of operating conditions. The loader has a Cat C9.3 ACERT diesel engine that delivers a peak net horsepower rating of 290 horsepower. The 966K XE will be available in North America in the first quarter of 2013.
