36 North American Oil & Gas Pipelines | FEBRUARY 2017 P I P E L I N E P R O D U C T E X P O CASE G SERIES WHEEL LOADERS CATERPILLAR 950M WHEEL LOADER Launched last year, the new G Series wheel loaders from Case Construction Equipment range from 141 to 347 hp, with bucket capacities from 2.1 to 6.25 cubic yards. The G Series wheel loaders were built for work that ranges from supply yards, building construction and agriculture up to quarries and mass excavation. The machines are well-suited for dig and load operations, as well as hauling applications often found on large-scale oil and gas pipeline projects and utility jobsites. The entire G Series wheel loader product line is Tier 4 Final compliant, featuring SCR engine technology that increases fuel efficiency, keeps exhaust temper- atures down and eliminates regeneration or lifetime diesel particulate filter (DPF) costs and maintenance. An all-new operator environment, controls and interface are designed to be intuitive and easy-to-operate. CASE G Series wheel loaders feature a broad range of bucket and linkage options The new 950M Wheel Loader has a 230-hp (net) U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV ACERT engine equipped with a combination of proven electronic, fuel, air and after-treatment components. Applying proven technologies systematically and strategically lets us meet our customer's high expectations for productivity, fuel efficiency, reliability and service life. Deep system integration results in reduced emissions, improved performance and improved fuel economy without interrupting machine performance making it seamless to operators. M Series Loaders are 10 percent more fuel efficient than the K Series Loaders and up to 25 percent more efficient than the H Series Loaders they replace. The 950M weighs in at 42,357 lbs and features a bucket breakout force 40,690 PIPELINE PRODUCT EXPO to optimize each machine to its application. Linkage options include Z-bar (best breakout force and general operation), XR (extended reach) and XT (tool carrier/parallel-lift configuration for best handling stacked/ palletized materials). Each loader comes standard with a four-speed PowerShift transmission. An optional five-speed transmission with lock- up torque converter is available on the 721G, 821G and 921G for over- the-road travel speeds up to 25 mph. For more information, visit lbf. Bucket capacity ranges from 3.3 to 12 cu-yds. The machine features a five-speed powershift transmission with single clutch speed shifts and torque based down shifts, as well as a lock up clutch torque converter with lock-to-lock shifting. Also available are Cat's Product Link technology to monitor equipment and manage production using online VisionLink software. Payload technologies, like the Cat Production Measurement (option) measures payloads and optimize productivity. For more information, visit
