Caterpillar’s new 992K high-lift wheel loader offers a full 24 inches more dump clearance than its standard-lift counterpart. The machine has a rated payload capacity of 21 tons. Hinge-pin height at full lift is 24 feet, 9 inches. When equipped with a 14-cubic-yard bucket, dump clearance under the teeth at full height and 45-degree discharge angle is 17 feet, 2 inches; with 15- and 16-cubic-yard buckets, dump clearances are 16 feet, 11 inches and 16 feet, 9 inches, respectively. The wheel loader features many improvements, including positive flow control hydraulics and additional sensors at the pumps for enhanced responsiveness.
