Cat prioritizes fuel efficiency, payload volume with new 995 Wheel Loader
June 21, 2023 By Rock to Road Staff
IRVING, Texas – The latest model in Cat’s line of wheel loaders is boasting double-digit improvements on both fuel efficiency and payload volumes.
The company says the Cat 995 features a 13 per cent decrease in hourly fuel efficiency and a potential payload volume that ranges from 20 to 33 per cent larger than its predecessor, depending on the application at hand.
The fuel efficiency of the 995 is reflected in the eight per cent efficiency gain that occurs when operating in its Enchanced Eco Mode, compared to standard throttle lock mode. This efficiency does not affect the machine’s power, with a Cat 3516E engine ensuring high lugging forces during digging and maintained acceleration in high rimpull applications.
The availability of interchangeable buckets with larger capacities adds versatility to the vehicle’s total payload volume, which have a fill factor of up to 115 per cent. Also available is Payload Overload Prevention technology to stop or slow operations when the maximum allowed payload weight is exceeded.
Other integrated technology featured in the 995 includes standard tip prevention technology, tire auto-setting and slip prevention, optional autodig components, lift stall prevention, and interactive operator coaching.
A number of features aim to maximize the lifespan and reduce downtime. The machine has a 500-hour oil change interval and comes with a Standard Vital Information Management System, which connects operators with a range of sensor information and enhanced machine data. Cat Product Link also provides operators with remote access to their machines.
Operators will have a more comfortable ride in the 995, with a cabin featuring 50 per cent more legroom, vibration feedback, and automatic temperature control. The cab also offers enhanced visibility for operators, with an increase of 25 per cent in glass surface area and 64 per cent in wiper sweep area.
