CAT 966H

Performance Series Buckets

The new Performance Series buckets are easier to load, achieve greater fill factors and retain more material for significantly greater productivity and fuel efficiency.

Work Tools
A large variety of pin-on and coupler work tools are available for your machine. Cat Work Tools are durable, reliable and designed for improved performance and efficiency.

Cab and Controls
The cab has been updated for unmatched comfort and efficiency. A new center display combines the Electronic Monitoring System with the gauge cluster, giving the operator all machine operating information in one location. The analog-like gauges have green and red zone indicators so operators can easily see if machine systems are within operating range. The right hand side sliding window opens widely and locks into position for comfortable communication to the ground staff or natural ventilation.

Transmission Improvements
The legendary Cat planetary powershift transmission is updated to provide faster acceleration, speed up ramps and greater operator comfort due to smoother shifting.

A new mono block main hydraulic valve is implemented into the machine. Its mono block design is smaller and lighter which improves reliability, access for service and machine weight distribution.
