Cat® Large Wheel Loaders are designed with durability built in, ensuring maximum availability through multiple life cycles. With optimized performance and simplified serviceability, our machines allow you to move more material efficiently and safely at a lower cost per ton.
Introduced in 1963, the 988 has been the industry leader for over 50 years, built on a legacy of reliability, performance, safety, operator comfort, serviceability, and productivity. The 988K XE brings improved sustainability and maximum efficiency to this machine platform.
The Cat C18 engine is built and tested to meet your most demanding applications while meeting Tier 4 Final/Stage IV emission standards.
Enabling maximum productivity and efficiency, all day every day.
Experience maximum responsiveness and control with STIC that combines directional selection, virtual gears and steering into a single lever.
Lower your cost per ton utilizing advanced torque control and RCS for modulated rimpull.
Your bottom line is improved by highly durable structures that achieve multiple life cycles and withstand the toughest loading conditions.
To ensure long life and reliability, the linkage pin joints feature a greased pin design with an auto lube system attachment available from the factory.
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.
Operators increase productivity with our responsive implements feature.
Confident loader operation starts with precise machine control enabled by the 988K XE's load sensing hydraulic steering system.
Benefit from extended performance and reliability of your hydraulic system with our advanced filtration system.
Enter and exit the cab easily and safely with these newly designed, ergonomic features.
Enhance comfort and helps reduce operator fatigue with Cat Comfort Series III seat.
Ergonomic placement of switches and information display keep your operators comfortable all day every day.
Your operator's productivity is enhanced with our clean, comfortable cab environment.
We have worked hard to help our customers and operators perform at their best through our newly upgraded touch screen information display.
Connect directly to the machine for access to a wide range of sensor information and enhanced machine data.
Tire pressure monitoring is a fully integrated feature which allows operators to monitor inflation of tires. Available through the Information Display, the operator can quickly see the current pressure settings and temperature of each tire.
Cat Production Measurement brings payload weighing to the cab so operators can work more productively and deliver accurate loads with confidence. CPM brings advanced weighing modes which assist with payload accuracy and speed the loading cycle.
A valued partner, your Cat dealer is available whenever you need them.
Sustainability is designed and built into our 988K XE.
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 off-highway trucks to maximize volume of material moved at the lowest operating cost per ton. The 988K XE equipped with the standard linkage will pass match the 770 (36 tonnes/40 tons) in 3 passes and the 772 (45 tonnes/50 tons) in 4 passes. Equipped with a high lift linkage the 988K XE is capable of loading a 773 (56 tonnes/61.7 tons) in 5 passes and the 775 (64 tonnes/70 tons) in 6 passes.
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, bottom wear plates, and sidebar 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 floor liner, half radius liners and bolt-on bottom edge wear plates. 20-series mechanically attached wear plates (MAWPS) are provided for additional wear protection and improved serviceability. Base edge end protection, ski plates, additional side wear plates, wings and an extra set of sidebar protectors are also included.
Designed for use primarily in stockpiling, re-handling and aggregate applications. GET includes a straight base edge with a bolt-on cutting edge system. Curved sidebars are provided to aid in material retention on the 12.5 yard (9.6 cubic meters) aggregate bucket only.
Designed with a larger capacity 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 (19 mm) ratchet.
