Cat Optimized Z-bar Loader linkage
The Cat Optimized Z-bar Loader linkage combines the digging efficiency of a traditional Z-bar with tool carrier capabilities for great performance and versatility. With parallel lift and high tilt forces throughout the working range you can safely and confidently handle loads with precise control. A High Lift option is available to extend both reach and dump clearance for more demanding tasks.
Hydraulics and Controls
State of the art electro-hydraulic system provides low effort, fine control with fast cycle times. All-in-one joystick helps keep eyes on the work. You can adjust machine responsiveness with the push of a button, which allows the operator to set up the machine exactly the way they want it based on the application. High Flow option allows for the use of even the most demanding work tools.
Smooth shifting and powerful acceleration is matched with modulated hydrostatic braking in the inching/braking pedal, creating a rhythm for material moving. Creeper and electronic engine speed control makes broom work easy. You can tune between smooth or aggressive shifting with the push of a button.
The 918M features the Cat exclusive Performance Series Buckets as well as high visibility pallet forks. These tools enhance productivity and are available with either an Integrated Toolcarrier (IT), ISO (wide) or Fusion interface coupler style. Legacy coupler tools such as brooms, grapple buckets, multi-purpose buckets and other work tools remain compatible.
