The Caterpillar® 928Hz Ready Mix wheel loader is specially equipped for high production and reliable, comfortable operation in ready mix concrete plants, asphalt batch plants and concrete products plants. The ready mix configuration features the highly maneuverable 928Hz loader equipped with a 3.5-cubic-yard (2.7-cubic-meter) sand and gravel bucket balanced by a ready mix counterweight package. The larger than standard bucket, good balance and short wheelbase of the small wheel loader deliver high productivity in the limited spaces of concrete and asphalt plants.
The ready mix loader configuration includes automatic ride control to cushion the bucket for a more comfortable ride and reduced spillage in load and carry duties. For added operator comfort and safety, the deluxe cab includes air conditioning, exterior mirrors, flood lights, sliding glass windows, and sun screen and sun visor. The cab is radio ready. A Caterpillar rear view camera system is available and features a color LCD monitor.
A choice of L2, L3, L5 or 600 tires allows matching the machine to specific needs. For enhanced reliability and reduced maintenance costs, the ready mix configuration includes a dustbowl intake air precleaner, a heavy-duty hydraulic oil cooler and a 95- amp brushless alternator. The proven Cat® C6.6 engine with ACERT® Technology delivers responsive power and low emissions. Rated net power is 149 horsepower (111 kilowatts), and peak net power is 160 horsepower (119 kilowatts).
The Caterpillar sand and gravel bucket is designed for long life and efficient operation. Side and bottom wear plates extend life in abrasive materials, and the reversible, three-piece, bolt-on cutting edge is long lived and easy to replace. The 928Hz Z-bar linkage
provides high breakout force of 19,599 pounds (8890 kilograms) for fast bucket loading. The good rack back angle enhances bucket loading and load retention.
