Cat® Optimized Z-bar Loader Linkage

The Cat Optimized Z-bar Loader linkage combines the digging efficiency of a traditional Z-bar with tool carrier capabilities for great performance and versatility. You can safely and confidently handle loads with precise control with parallel lift and high tilt forces throughout the working range


Work Tools

The 918M features the Cat exclusive, Performance Series Buckets, as well as high visibility pallet forks. These tools enhance productivity and are available with either an Integrated Toolcarrier (IT) or ISO (wide) coupler style. Legacy coupler tools such as brooms, grapple buckets, multi-purpose buckets and other work tools remain compatible.


Hydraulics and Controls

State of the art electro-hydraulic system provides low effort, fine control with fast cycle times. All-in-one joystick helps keep eyes on the work. Operator can adjust machine responsiveness with the push of a button, which allows the operator to set up the machine exactly the way they want it based on the application. High Flow option allows for the use of even the most demanding work tools.


Tuned Drivetrain

Smooth shifting and powerful acceleration is matched with modulated hydrostatic braking in the inching/braking pedal, creating a rhythm for material moving. Creeper and electronic engine speed control makes broom and snow blower work easy. Operator tunes between smooth or aggressive shifting with the push of a button.


Cab

All around visibility is further enhanced with the availability ofa rearview camera. The deluxe cab ensures operator comfort witha heated, air suspension seat and easy to use controls. Available features such as Implement and Hystat Aggressiveness, Ride Control, Lift and Tilt Kickouts, Engine Speed Control and Rimpull Control allow the operator to customize the machine via a soft touch keypad.


Serviceability

Extended service intervals and excellent service access make daily checks quick and easy allowing you to get to work sooner.


Efficiently Powerfull

High full turn tipping loads, powerful breakout forces and increased engine power, the M Series delivers a balanced solution for all customer applications.


Standard Fuel Savings Features

Fuel savings features such as Eco Mode, On-Demand Cooling Fan and Auto Engine Idle Shutdown, make the 918M both powerful and fuel efficient.
