From Cat, the 903D compact wheel loader features a 40-hp, C2.4 engine and hydrostatic transmission that provides travel speeds up to 12.4 mph. An auxiliary hydraulic system delivers a flow of up to 14 gpm at pressures up to 3,481 psi. The model is equipped with Z-bar loader linkage, including boom-float and return-to-dig functions. Boom arms are available in both standard and high lift configurations, the latter increasing hinge-pin height from 10 ft. 1 in. to 10 ft. 7 in. The loader’s multi-function joystick provides controls for directional changes, third-function hydraulics, differential locks and continuous hydraulic flow.
