For tough and demanding sugarcane applications the purpose-built power train of the 938K Sugarcane Handler includes a high torque axle paired with high flotation agricultural tires. Combined with an intelligent hydrostatic transmission and maximum engine speed of 1,800 rpm, allows you to move more material while enjoying industry leading fuel savings.
Move more with Caterpillar's ultra-capacity bagasse bucket, dedicated to stockpiling material at the mill or a patented quick loading Performance Series bucket for digging terraces in the field.
The 938K Sugarcane Handler is built to handle a high temperature and high debris environment, with a cyclonic pre-filter and on-demand hydraulically driven reversing fan as standard.
Have a seat in the 938K Sugarcane Handler and enjoy excellent all around visibility and low-effort joystick controls that move with you on a fully adjustable seat suspension. A large spacious operator environment combined with Caterpillar's exclusive hydraulic cylinder damping and smooth predictable controls make this the most comfortable seat on your job site.
Meet your application requirements and individual preferences with Caterpillar's industry first Hystat Operator Modes featuring unique power train settings. Select classic Torque Converter for smooth roll-out, or conventional Hystat for aggressive engine braking. Fine tune machine performance by adjusting wheel torque when working in muddy fields or maximize torque when climbing a mountain of bagasse.
