The 950H delivers performance you can feel in the most demanding applications. This machine offers unmatched operator comfort and efficiency in a world-class cab. New Performance Series buckets deliver decreased dig times, greater fill factors and superior material retention to increase productivity and reduce fuel consumption. Revolutionary electro-hydraulic (EH) provide low-effort finger-tip operation of lift, tilt and auxiliary work tool controls. The reliability, durability, and versatility of the 950H result in a machine that is better built to meet your needs.
