Overview

Cat Large Wheel Loaders are designed with durability built in, ensuring maximum availability through multiple life cycles. With optimized performance and simplified serviceability, our machines allow you to move more material efficiently and safely at a lower cost per ton. The new 986H builds upon this legacy of durability, performance, safety, operator comfort, serviceability and sustainability.
