Caterpillar has added four options for the Cat 918M wheel loader.

The high-lift loader linkage option boosts lift height and reach by up to 10 percent compared with the standard loader.

The Fusion coupler system gives users a third coupler choice. It uses a constant-pressure wedging mechanism for a tight fit with attachments, eliminating play between the coupler and attachment. The wedge pulls the attachment tight in two directions: in and down.

Three 20.5R25 tires have been added as alternatives to the standard 17.5R25 tires. The Goodyear E/L-2A “Sure Grip Loader” is a 12-ply-rated bias tire with directional and self-cleaning tread. The Michelin “Xsnoplus” is designed for snow and ice with nondirectional and self-cleaning tread. The Michelin XHA2 radial has wide lugs with nondirectional tread and protected sidewalls. Width-over-tires is about 91 inches with the larger tires.

Guarding options include headlight guards, hitch guards, powertrain guard, drive shaft guard, and crankcase guard.

Caterpillar produced a video explaining the options.
