Cat 963 Track Loader Offers Improved Fuel Efficiency, Other Benefits
BY AsphaltPro Staff
The new Cat 963 Track Loader offers up to 10 percent better fuel efficiency, more productivity, and cab and control improvements, according to the manufacturer. The new 963 crawler loader replaces the 963K, and meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage V emission standards.
The 963 is powered by a Cat C7.1 engine that produces 15 percent more peak torque than the previous model. Auto Mode can reduce fuel consumption by up to 10 percent by adapting the engine speed to the load. The 963 also has Eco Mode, which lowers speed for further reduction in fuel consumption in lighter duty applications, and Power Mode, which keeps the engine speed high to feel readily available power at all times.
The updated cab is equipped with a suspension seat and adjustable armrests and controls, as well as a 10-inch touchscreen dash display and rearview camera. According to the manufacturer, Slope Indicate makes operation easier by showing machine mainfall and cross slope right on the display.
