Product Spotlight | Cat 910K and 914K Compact Wheel Loaders

Caterpillar has expanded its Compact Wheel Loaders product line to include the 914K and the new 910K. The new compact wheel loaders replace the Cat 914G2 and IT14G2 models. The loaders feature a redesigned cab, Cat Hystat hydrostatus drive system, and a 92-net horsepower, EPA Tier 4-Interim / EU Stage IIIB engine. These powerful compact wheel loaders are equipped with the same digging power as conventional Z-bar machines, but incorporate functions of integrated tool carriers.
