SAFETY

  • Designed for visibility, with a taller windshield that provides a 25% increase in glass surface area for a better view to the bucket, standard rear-view camera, optional Detect 270-degree cameras, standard LED lighting and mining mirrors.
  • Improved access and egress, with integrated powered access system, adjustable hanging steps, 45-degree-angle wide stairs, emergency egress ladder, and full handrails on each side.
  • Wide walkways with non-skid surfaces and integrated lockout/tagout points designed into the service areas.
  • Speed limiter, which sets the maximum speeds in both forward and reverse.

OPERATOR COMFORT

  • 50% increase in leg room and increased width by the operator’s knees compared to previous model.
  • Reduced vibration, low sound levels and automatic temperature controls.
  • Electro-hydraulic speed-sensing steering with force feedback for shift-long comfort.
  • Pressurized cab featuring Next Gen Seat with 9-inch travel, active cooling and heating, adjustable lumbar support, seat cushion tilt adjustment, and air-adjustable bolsters on the seat and backrest.

CONFIDENT & EMPOWERED OPERATORS

  • Low-effort integrated controls that make cycles smoother and faster while reducing fatigue.
  • Large, easy-to-read, color LED displays that provide access to the Electronic Operation & Maintenance Manual.
  • Operator coaching, which helps empower operators to exceed targets by measuring and providing feedback to reinforce proper operating techniques.
  • New Autodig Components that boost efficiency and reduce tire wear by automating critical parts of the digging cycle.
  • Payload Overload Prevention, which inhibits severe payloads from being raised to full truck height.

PRODUCTIVITY

  • Increased rated payload, which allows for a a 4-pass match to a 90.7-tonne (100-ton) truck in all applications.
  • Better digging thanks to 20% more breakout force compared to previous models, with no increase in cycle time; 9.5% boost in rimpull; and increased traction.
  • Superior loading with Cat Performance Series Buckets, which deliver easier, faster loading; increased fill factors and material retention; larger bucket volume; and better bucket and machine stability due to the payload being lower and closer to the machine.
  • Greater stability, thanks to an increase in static tipping load and greater tipping-to-weight ratio, which helps operators be more confident and productive.

EFFICIENCY-BOOSTING FEATURES

  • Tire Slip Prevention, which reduces rimpull when there is less downforce on the tire and increases rimpull when there is more downforce on the tire — providing maximum rimpull when you can use it.
  • Tire Set, which automatically applies a lift command at the optimal time to increase traction on the tire, allowing for an increase in usable rimpull.
  • Lift Stall Prevention, which automatically applies the impeller clutch when necessary to prevent hydraulic stall when lifting up through the face — keeping the lift motion continuous, without excessive use of the impeller clutch.
  • Positive Flow Control Hydraulic System, which boosts efficiency with concurrent pump and valve control and increases bucket feel and control to deliver consistent performance.
  • On-demand throttle feature that allows operators to maintain normal operation with the left pedal and implements while the 992 manages the engine speed.

SERVICEABILITY

  • Reduced time spent on regular maintenance procedures thanks to features such as ground-level or platform access to filters; grouped service points; swing-out doors on both sides of the engine compartment; improved access for engine and pump drive service as well as to cooling package; and automatic lubrication system that greases the linkage, hitch, steering and axle trunnion bearings.
  • Relocated service station that provides easy access to functions such as coolant and oil as well as level indicators; Cat battery charging connector; and indicator lights for full fuel tanks.
  • Standard VIMS™ monitoring system that delivers critical health and payload information, keeping performance at optimum levels and allowing advanced troubleshooting and planning to lower maintenance costs.
  • Improved hydraulic system filtration as well as prognostics for the implement pump and remaining useful life of the engine air filter.
  • Remote Flash capabilities that reduce downtime by providing immediate access to the latest software updates.

VERSATILITY

  • Ideal for all temperatures, with high ambient package for operation in temperatures as high as 55 degrees C / 131 degrees F; and cold-weather features such as cooling fan bypass; 120V or 240V coolant heating elements and fuel heater; 240V engine oil; and heated mirrors.
  • Approved for higher payloads in low to moderate digging resistance applications; increased payload intended for rehandled material in the ROM pad area or stockpile material, such as coal.
  • Variety of bucket options, including limestone bucket; granite buckets for use in high-abrasion production applications; heavy-duty rock buckets for applications like face loading tightly compacted pit materials or handling materials of moderate abrasion and high impact; coal buckets for light density non-abrasive materials; and iron ore buckets for extremely aggressive applications.
  • New Performance Series Buckets that feature extended floor, dual radius and angled side bars for fast loading; larger bottom box section for increased strength, high fill factors and good material retention; and taller side plate with a level top surface improves operator visibility to the bucket from the cab.
  • Cat Ground Engaging Tools (GET) that feature CapSure™ Retention Technology, which simplifies component replacement with hammerless retention for fast, easy and safe installation.

DURABILITY

  • New C32B engine improved for increased durability.
  • Use of structural castings at the high-stress locations where the lift arm and front axle mount; and improvements to the axle cutout, upper hitch design and rear trunnion mounting.
  • Loads efficiently transmitted by the field-proven solid steel lift arms and reinforced pin joint bores.
  • Powertrain improvements including 20% increase in Planned Component Replacement interval of drivetrain components; increase in axle housing size, which enabled the elimination of the brake anchor and integration of brakes into the housing; 23% increase in oscillation joint diameter, which greatly increases surface area and reduces bearing wear; and increased hardness on Output Transfer Gears (OTG).
  • Frame, powertrain, engine and components that all built to be rebuilt — using new, remanufactured or rebuilt parts and components — to deliver multiple lives of like-new performance at a fraction-of-new price.

TECHNOLOGY

  • Cat MineStar™ Terrain for loading, which provides real-time feedback on payloads and design plan progress to increases productivity and accuracy, reduce rework, enhance ore control and improve shift-to-shift operator performance.
  • MineStar Object Detection, which combines radar and camera systems to warn operators about light vehicles or stationary hazards within the immediate vicinity of their machines.
  • MineStar Health, which delivers critical event-based machine condition and operating data and includes comprehensive equipment health and asset monitoring capabilities, with a wide range of diagnostic, analytic and reporting tools.
  • Upgraded touchscreen information display that provides intuitive operation and easy navigation and keeps operators informed about machine systems to decrease service time.
  • Cat ProductLink™, which provides remote access to information on machine systems and diagnostic codes; allows you to track utilization, fuel usage and payload summaries; and gives access to machine location, service meter hours and reporting status.

SUSTAINABILITY

  • Designed to be more efficient and use less fuel, which reduces engine emissions and carbon footprint; Tier 4 Final engine reduces NOx and particulate matter.
  • Engine Idle Shutdown, which saves fuel by making it possible to avoid unnecessary idling.
  • Better control of fluids through use of Cat anti-drain filter housings and component ecology drains.
  • Retrofits and upgrades for older machines — to incorporate efficiency improvements and emission reductions, and to keep them in production longer to conserve energy and minimize the need for raw materials
  • Cat Rebuild and Cat Reman programs, which preserve raw materials, conserve energy and reduce emissions.
