These quotes from actual operators working in waste facilities across the United States are all about their experiences with one machine: the Cat® 966M XE Wheel Loader.
And operators aren’t the only people who like what it brings to the table. Folks in management are reporting significant bottom line benefits, too. Read on for more details about this high-production, high-efficiency loader — including results it’s delivering in transfer stations and material recovery facilities from coast to coast.
Cat XE models are built for the most demanding work, combining a range of system enhancements with advanced technologies. They deliver more power, maximum efficiency and significant fuel savings — all while improving comfort and making operation safer and easier.
966M XE loaders are currently working in transfer stations and material recovery facilities of various sizes, ranging from 500 to 2,000 tons processed per day. The operations we’ve talked to are seeing benefits in a number of areas, but higher fuel efficiency and lower tire wear stand out.
Athens Services, for example, reports fuel savings of up to 23 percent and tire savings of 10 percent with the 966M XE. During a recent seven-customer demo, we saw fuel reductions of 10-25 percent compared to our standard loaders and competitive machines, with tire wear lower by 8-12 percent.
Other feedback we’re hearing is that the 966M XE helps operators get more work done without working as hard, since it delivers full lift power at lower RPMs than a standard machine. Operators tell us they can “relax” but still work safely whether they’re operating at higher speeds, using rimpull control, raising and lowering the bucket, or even working in cruise or throttle lock.
You can put the 966M XE to work anywhere and any way you’d use a standard wheel loader — stockpiling, floor cleaning, load and carry, pushing material or loading hoppers, conveyors and outbound vehicles. It’s designed to deliver high torque and power to the floor and during loading. It can even sort material if equipped with the right work tool.
