Overview

A Cat Track Loader is one of the most versatile machines on the job site. Save money and transport time with one rugged machine capable of a multitude of tasks like land clearing, digging, backfilling, grading, truck loading, carrying, spreading materials, slope work, and more. Steel tracks on a crawler loader offer reduced ground pressure and better traction so you can often start the job earlier and work longer than other machines in soft underfoot conditions. The new 963K brings you all of this value, plus improved performance, 10-30 percent better fuel efficiency and additional comfort and safety features for the operator. The 963K meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV/Korea Tier 4 Final emission standards.
