New Cat® 994K Wheel Loader features increased Payload, Power and Productivity and lower Cost per Ton

Caterpillar: Cat 994K Wheel Loader

The new Cat® 994K Wheel Loader is Caterpillar’s largest wheel loader and handles significantly greater payload compared to its predecessor, the 994H. The result is fewer passes required to load large mining trucks, higher productivity and lower cost per unit of material moved. The standard 994K carries 45 tons (40.8 tonnes) per pass, and the high lift version moves 42 tons (38.1 tonnes) per pass—18 percent and 20 percent more, respectively, than the previous model.
