Caterpillar’s 950 GC wheel loader is now configured to meet Tier 4 Final emissions regulations for use in North America. The loader is well-suited for government applications as well as for stockpiling, load-and-carry work, hopper charging, and truck loading.

Caterpillar’s Z-bar loader linkage on the 950 GC delivers excellent digging capabilities and strong breakout force through the use of Cat Performance Series buckets and load sensing hydraulics. These provide on-demand hydraulic flow and pressure for the implement system only in the amount necessary to perform the task at hand. The 950 GC also offers best-in-class hinge pin height of 13 feet, 9 inches and 12-feet loader arm clearance for easy loading of high-wall trailers and charging of large hoppers.

A range of available work tools include Performance Series buckets, which boast a long floor, wide opening, and curved side plates. The design enables operators of all experience levels to attain 10% higher bucket fill factors as compared to legacy designs, ultimately improving cycle times and reducing fuel consumption. The Cat Fusion quick coupler and controls are also available, allowing the 950 GC to use a number of Cat work tools across multiple wheel loader models. The quick-coupler control arrangement includes a dual tilt kick-out system for bucket return-to-dig and fork operations, selectable from the cab.

The Cat C7.1 ACERT engine generates a maximum power rating of 241 hp and meets emissions standards with a fully automatic and passive regeneration system. This system lowers operating costs without the need for an ash service interval and has an overall diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) consumption of just 2-3% of fuel burned. No operator intervention is required.

Rethinking Utilization: Using the Energy in Parked EVs

By Facundo Tassara
Think the return on investment for electric vehicles (EVs) is too long? Vehicle-to-grid technology allows EVs to earn money while parked by utilizing their large batteries to provide energy storage services for buildings, utilities, and the grid. This extra money can reduce the total cost of ownership of EVs.

Size Matters

By Sherb Brown
There is little doubt that the folks out there with 5,000-10,000 vehicles have a good handle on how much they should be paying; for everything from bucket trucks to sedan floor mats. But some of our recent survey data shows that vast hordes of the fleet market are paying close to retail rates for a lot of products and services.
