Retaining the best features of the 988G, the new 988H wheel loader includes enhancements that reduce emissions and increase fuel efficiency. Also, the loader is easier to maneuver, transport and service. The biggest change is the new C18 ACERT engine, rated at 475 net horsepower and Tier 3 compliant. Three linkages are available, including a new 12.7-foot option. The unit is suited for loading trucks in the 35- to 40-ton size class.
