The 982M Wheel Loader has an ACERT™ engine equipped with a combination of proven electronic, fuel, and air components. Applying proven technologies systematically and strategically lets us meet your high expectations for productivity, fuel efficiency, reliability and service life. Deep system integration results in reduced emissions, improved performance and improved fuel economy without interrupting machine performance. This all-purpose machine is a great 2-pass match for larger on-highway trucks, bank excavation and even face loading in shot rock applications. The 982M has longer standard lift arms than the 980M making it a great rail car loader due to the higher hinge pin height. Aggregate Handler configuration is available. (Optional configuration and equipment may vary from region to region. Consult your Caterpillar representative for further details.)

Maximum travel speed in standard vehicle with empty bucket and standard L4 tires with 914 mm (36 in) roll radius.Maximum travel speed in standard vehicle with empty bucket and standard L4 tires with 914 mm (36 in) roll radius.
10% more fuel efficient than 980K yard loader configuration*
*Fuel efficiency is measured in mass of material moved per volume of fuel burned. Average efficiency improvement as tested and analyzed for an average composite cycle and stand configuration with variations per comparable model with and without economy mode active. Factors influence result variation such as, but not limited to, machine configuration, operator technique, machine application, climate, etc.
