Easy to own and economical to operate, the CAT® 966 GC Wheel Loader delivers maximum production and performance, while keeping fuel consumption and operating costs to a minimum.

This medium-sized machine is reliable, durable, and purpose-built to handle a wide range of applications across your jobsites, making it an outstanding addition to any fleet. Powered by a fuel-efficient CAT® C9.3B engine, the 966 GC also features improved technology components like an on-demand fan, load-sensing hydraulics, and Performance Series Buckets to drive productivity with low fuel consumption.

And with a spacious cab that includes easy, intuitive controls and excellent visibility for an optimal operating environment, the CAT® 966 GC Wheel Loader is the right choice for your business.

966GC Reliability
OUTSTANDING RELIABILITY

Proven and improved electronic, fuel, and air systems combine to ensure that the CAT® C9.3B engine delivers high power density from one jobsite to the next. Thorough component choice, design and in-machine validation processes result in excellent reliability and uptime. And the AdvansysTM GET system features stronger adapters - tips with a new shape do an even better job of protecting the adapter and an integrated retainer.

966GC Productivity
NON-STOP PRODUCTIVITY

Low fuel consumption and exceptional production capabilities come standard with the CAT® 966 GC. And that's thanks to the proven Cat Z-bar linkage geometry with easy-to-load Performance Series Buckets, which improve material retention and reduce dig times. The electronically controlled, automatic powershift heavy duty planetary transmission features shift protection and single clutch gear shifting for efficiency, durability, and smooth transition between gears. And optional FusionTM quick-coupler and third hydraulic function ensure that this machine can carry tools, buckets, grapples or forks with ease.

966GC Fuel Efficiency
SUPERIOR FUEL-EFFICIENCY

The economical CAT® C9.3B engine offers a maximum gross power rating of 239 kw or 321 hp. An electronically controlled, hydraulically-driven variable speed fan adjusts to meet the varying cooling requirements of the machine. This, together with the CAT® Engine Idle Management System, results in lower fuel consumption and a saving on additional operation costs. Load sensing hydraulics produce flow and pressure for the implement system upon demand and only in amounts necessary to perform the needed work functions.

966GC Operator Environment
COMFORTABLE OPERATOR
ENVIRONMENT

The 966 GC has been designed and built with safety and comfort in mind. The spacious cab has ladders on either side, enabling easy entry and exit, and features intuitive hydraulic controls for low-effort operation. A roof-to-floor, distortion-free flat front windshield, extended windows, exterior mirrors with integrated spot mirrors, and a rear-view camera ensure excellent visibility. Air conditioning keeps the operator comfortable all-year round, with louvered vents ensuring optimal air flow throughout the shift. Sliding side windows allow natural ventilation and easy communication with ground staff.
