Caterpillar 's 930G wheel loader has the company's VersaLink linkage design for heightened visibility to forks and bucket corners. The excavator-style boom increases durability without increasing loader weight, the company says, combining the speed, strength and durability of Z-bar linkage with the versatility and parallel lift and control of its tool carriers. Dual mode steering allows for traditional steering or the company's QuickSteer for tight, repetitive operations. Proportional-flow auxiliary hydraulics provide infinite adjustment of third-function flow. Estimated list price: $130,000 to $160,000.
