FUEL SAVINGS

Engine burns less fuel by providing power and torque when needed. Load sensing hydraulics result in proportional flow for implement and steering on demand. Machine equipped with easy to load buckets.

The proven Z-bar linkage with Performance Series Buckets offer excellent penetration into the pile, high breakout forces, good roll back angles and faster dig times.

The 966H feature a load sensing hydraulic system that automatically adjusts to operating conditions to provide only the hydraulic flow required by the implement for improved fuel efficiency.

The Cat® C11 and engines are electronically configured to provide constant net horsepower at full parasitic load, enhancing productivity and improving fuel effi ciency.

A large variety of pin-on and coupler work tools are available for your machine.

The Engine Idle Management System (EIMS) maximizes fuel efficiency by reducing engine rpm after a selected amount of time.

The hydraulic components are all conveniently located behind the hinged right side access ladder at a single ground level service center improving safety and reducing service time.
