Caterpillar Announces New Compact Wheel Loaders to U.S., Canada
Caterpillar announced its new compact wheel loaders May 4 with an expected arrival date in the United States and Canada in fourth quarter 2022. The 906, 907 and 908 are the updated machines built in Lester, England, and featuring new amenities for operators as well as enhancements to hydraulics. All three machines offer air conditioning as an option and a spokesperson explained this “has been upgraded versus the previous HVAC system by +60% increase in performance.”
Also check out the LED roading and working lights, some of which can be rotated 90 degrees and feature light guarding for extra safety.
The 906 has an 18.5-gallon fuel tank, which represents a 30% increase over the earlier model. The 907 and 908 models have 24-gallon fuel tanks. None of these require DEF fluid.
All three models offer touch screens in the cab and touch-screen controls for operators. If the owner wishes to assist new operators, he can “lock the system” into a simplified mode. A representative explained, “This can be done in the field via a service menu, which has a separate password that an administrative fleet manager could know. Dealers aren’t required in this instance.”
