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 and 777 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.
LINKAGE AND FRAMES
We combine 40+ years of design and field experience - as well as new validation technologies - to ensure 992K frames, castings, welds and fabrications are the best in the industry. Our unique box section rear and front frame designs combine plates and castings to manage torsion loads and provide longer lasting alignment for hitch and pin life. Sleeve bearing pins in the linkage are more predictable in their wear and limit daily greasing. For load and carry applications, optional Ride Control further reduces shock loads to the frame while giving the operator a much smoother ride.
CAT C32 ENGINE
The 992K retains the durability and reliability of the proven Cat C32 diesel with ACERT™ Technology. Like all Cat machines, this engine has been completely integrated into all machine systems resulting in power curves, fuel maps and ratings that are unique to this machine and applications. The solid foundation of this engine starts from our legendary foundries delivering the highest quality engine block. The mechanically actuated, electronically controlled unit injection (MEUI™) ensures that fuel is metered out in optimal quantities for both power and efficiency.
POSITIVE FLOW CONTROL HYDRAULICS
The 992K Positive Flow Control (PFC) Hydraulic System is setting a new standard for hydraulic response, performance and efficiency. The implement system is equipped with two electronically controlled, fully variable piston pumps for fast, productive cycles. PFC has concurrent pump and valve control. By optimizing pump control, hydraulic oil flow is proportionate to implement lever stroke. Benefits:
Lowered fuel consumption by up to five percent
Improved hydraulic response, giving the operator better feel and control of the bucket
Improved power efficiency and lower system heat
