Caterpillar first introduced the 992 in 1968. This large wheel loader has been a global leader ever since, building a reputation as a face loader that's both safe to operate, productive and durable. With the introduction of the K Series, we've enhanced the operator's experience and the safety of those working on and around the machine. With both standard and high lift configurations, this machine will pass match with fleets of 775, 777, and 785 trucks. If your operations revolve around the 992 as a loading tool, you'll find everything that's important to your business in the 992K; safety, productivity, cost control and comfort for your people.
Your bottom line is improved by highly durable structures that achieve multiple life cycles and withstand the toughest loading conditions.
Your key to maximum uptime and productivity is our field-proven lift arm.
To ensure long life and reliability, sleeve bearing pins in the linkage are more predictable in their wear and limit daily greasing.
Lower your cost per ton utilizing advanced ICTC and RCS for modulated rimpull.
Experience maximum responsiveness and control with STIC that combines directional selection, gear selection and steering into a single lever.
Building your success begins with a best-in-class transmission designed specifically for your application.
The 992K retains the durability and reliability of the proven Cat C32 diesel with ACERT Technology.
Enabling maximum productivity and efficiency, all day every day.
Increase efficiency through our Positive Flow Control (PFC) Hydraulic System. PFC has concurrent pump and valve control. By optimizing pump control, hydraulic oil flow is proportionate to implement lever movement.

Confident loader operation starts with precise machine control enabled by the 992K's load sensing hydraulic steering system.
Benefit from extended performance and reliability of your hydraulic system with our advanced filtration system.
Your operator's productivity is enhanced with our clean, comfortable cab environment.
Enhance comfort and reduce operator fatigue.
Train other operators in comfort with our standard training seat.
We have worked hard to help our customers and operators perform at their best through our newly upgraded touch screen information display.
Take the guesswork out of asset management with Product Link remote monitoring.
Connect directly to the machine for access to a wide range of sensor information and enhanced machine data.
Fleet provides comprehensive, real-time machine tracking, assignment and productivity management, giving you a comprehensive overview of all operations from anywhere in the world.
Terrain with your 992K enables high-precision management of loading operations through the use of guidance technology. It increases 992K's productivity and provides you real-time feedback for improved efficiency.
Detect helps increase operator awareness, enhancing safety at your operation. It includes a range of capabilities designed to assist the operator with areas of limited visibility around fixed and mobile equipment.
Health delivers critical event-based machine condition and operating data for your entire fleet. It includes comprehensive equipment health and asset monitoring capabilities, with a wide range of diagnostic, analytic and reporting tools.
The Cat powered access system allows easier access to the primary stairs by improving access and egress to and from the rear platform.
A valued partner, your Cat dealer is available whenever you need them.
Environmental responsibility is designed and built into our 992K's features.
Cat buckets are designed for superior performance in a variety of materials. They are engineered to dig into piles quickly and load efficiently. Optimized fill factors enable you to get the job done and move on to other tasks. Fast load cycles and fewer trips mean less wear and tear on your machine and keep you working.
Designed for use in bank or face loading of limestone and other unprocessed rock. Application also includes truck and hopper loading for a wide range of quarry materials. GET includes spade nose cutting edge with adapters, half arrow segments, floor liner, bottom wear plates, wings, and side bar protectors.
Designed for use in applications like face loading tightly compacted pit materials or handling materials of moderate abrasion and high impacts. GET are similar to the rock bucket with the addition of half radius liners and bolt-on bottom edge wear plates. Base edge end protection, ski plates, additional side wear plates, and an extra set of side bar protectors are also included.
Designed for use in extremely aggressive applications like face loading. Built for high abrasion and moderate impact. GET are similar to heavy duty rock buckets with the addition of flush mount adapter covers, edge segment top covers and side heel shrouds. Iron ore buckets are smaller in bucket capacity to accommodate for higher material density applications.
Designed for use in applications with light density and non-abrasive materials. GET includes a straight base edge with a bolt-on cutting edge system.
Protect expensive components. Reduce your operating costs. Get the most out of your machine's performance. Choose from a variety of performance-built Advansys GET like these to meet your application requirements.
Simplify GET component replacement with hammerless CapSure retention for fast, easy and safe installation. CapSure tips, shrouds and sidebar protectors are easily locked and unlocked with a 180 degree turn of a 3∕4 inch ratchet.
The standard 992K is sized to load the 68 tonnes (70 ton) 775 in three passes, and the 91 tonnes (100 ton) 777 in four passes. The 992K high light configuration loads the 777 in five passes, and the 145 tonnes (160 ton) 785 in seven passes.
For full truck payloads with minimum loading time, an efficient loading/hauling system starts with a perfect match. Cat wheel loaders are matched with Cat mining trucks to maximize volume of material moved at the lowest operating cost per ton.
Selection of the right bucket depends on penetration requirements, material densities, abrasion, and the loading target. Bucket sizes are matched to truck bed capacities and material densities for optimum loading efficiency and greater productivity.
