Caterpillar launches several new design enhancements for its Small Wheel Loader (SWL) line — Cat 926M, 930M, and 938M models — centered on improving attachment visibility, operator comfort, and machine performance.

The SWL line’s new Fusion Quick Coupler improves visibility to the attachment in material handling applications. In addition, a new cast torque tube design for the new Cat 930M and 938M models significantly improves operator visibility to the attachment when it’s in a raised position. The new standard lift arms offer 100% more fork tip/heel visibility and 50% more bucket edge visibility to improve operating efficiency. Updated hose routing close to the side of the lift arms help to improve visibility when equipped with the third function auxiliary lines grouping.

Powered by the Cat C7.1 engine, the re-engineered 930M now meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final standards. The new 930M also delivers a 5% boost in gross horsepower, 5% increase in breakout force, and a 5% higher full-turn tip load when compared to the previous 930M.
