Overview

Caterpillar first introduced the 992 in 1968. This large wheel loader has been a global leader ever since, building a reputation as a face loader that’s both safe to operate, productive and durable. With the introduction of the K Series™, we’ve enhanced the operator’s experience and the safety of those working on and around the machine. We’ve reduced operating costs with fuel saving efficiencies that reduce your cost per ton.With both standard and high lift configurations, this machine will pass match with fleets of 775, 777 and 785 trucks. If your operations revolve around the 992 as a loading tool, you’ll find everything that’s important to your business in the 992K; safety, productivity, cost control and comfort for your people.
