Reliable, versatile, and economical, Barloworld Equipment’s new Cat® 966 GC Wheel Loader is worth a serious look if you’re thinking about upsizing your fleet. And not just because it’s guaranteed to have a positive impact on your company’s bottom line, but also because it’s built on a 60-year legacy of high performance and highly reliable wheel loaders.

Built with your business in mind
The Cat® 966 GC Wheel Loader combines high productivity with low owning and operating costs to make it a sensible, cost-effective choice for your business.

Outstanding performance
This medium-sized wheel loader is powered by a Cat® C9.3B engine, which not only offers high power density with a combination of proven and improved electronic, fuel, and air systems, but is also certified to meet emission standards.

Exceptional fuel efficiency
When it comes to fuel-saving features, the list for the Cat® 966 GC is long. The Engine Idle Management System (EIMS), a software system designed to reduce idle RPM and fuel consumption in applications where significant periods of idling are necessary, is just one of this machine’s most impressive offerings. Others include the electronically controlled, hydraulically driven on-demand fan, which adjusts to meet the wheel loader’s varying cooling requirements and the load sensing hydraulic system which produces flow and pressure for the implement system on demand and only in amounts necessary to perform the required work functions.

Easy maintenance
Ground access to most of the daily and scheduled maintenance points makes the Cat® 966 GC safe, easy, and efficient to service. Wide-opening gull-wing doors on the engine hood enable comfortable reach to all service points, while grease fittings for hard-to-reach pins are grouped conveniently for quick and easy preventive lubrication. An electrical service centre helps make servicing and in-field component exchange quick, easy, and efficient. All of which ensure that your machine is well maintained and running at optimal capacity – and that adds up to more time on site and greater profitability for your business.

Impressive versatility
The Cat® 966 GC is purpose built to handle a wide range of applications across all your jobsites. By adding this workhorse to your fleet, you’ll increase your productivity and efficiency and reduce the need for expensive specialist machinery.

What sets CAT® apart from the competition?
Engineered to perform and built to last with individual components designed and manufactured to Caterpillar quality standards, Cat® machines have become synonymous with hard work, grit and a get-it-done attitude.

And then there’s the industry leading innovation that puts Cat® firmly ahead of the competition. The Cat®Advansys™ Ground Engaging Tools (GET) system is an excellent example of this innovation in action. Designed for the toughest jobs, and with exclusive performance features like tapered tip sides for less drag and higher productivity and new optimised tip shapes that put wear material where you need it most, the Cat®Advansys™ GET system allows you to move more material with less downtime.

Finally, when you buy a Cat® product, you’re not just getting a superior machine – you’re getting support from the largest, most experienced dealer network in the world. Plus, you can rely on your Cat® dealer to help you maximise machine uptime by providing global parts support, trained technicians, and customer support agreements.
