Caterpillar 988K Wheel Loader

May 7, 2013

The 988K wheel loader features a redesigned loader linkage, worldwide engine configurations, drive train modifications, a redesigned cab, and enhancements in safety and serviceability.

A Cat C18 ACERT engine powers the 988K and is available as a Tier 4-Final version. Electronic fuel control ensures optimum performance and throttle response, delivering up to 20 percent greater fuel efficiency, compared with the 988H. Additional fuel savings accrue with the 988K ECO Mode (on-demand throttle), engine-idle shutdown system, and engine-idle kickdown/auto-resume system, Cat says. The patented Optimized Z-bar loader linkage replaces the 988H mono-boom design and expands the 988K’s versatility in small quarries and underground applications.

The unit will be commercially available worldwide in August.
