Overview

The Cat® 918M Wheel Loader sets the standard for productivity, fuel efficiency and operator comfort. The improved optimized Z-bar loader linkage delivers the quick loading performance of a traditional Z-bar with the parallelism and load handling capability of a toolcarrier. A high torque, lower speed Cat C4.4 ACERT™ engine works in concert with an intelligent hystat power train to deliver fuel efficiency as standard. Meets Japan 2014 (Tier 4 Final) emission standards with a diesel oxidation catalyst designed to manage itself so you can concentrate on your work.
