924K Small Wheel Loader

The Cat® 924K Small Wheel Loader sets the standard for productivity, fuel efficiency and operator comfort. The improved optimized Z-bar loader linkage delivers the quick loading performance of a traditional Z-bar with the parallelism and load handling capability of a tool carrier. A high torque, low speed C7.1 engine works in concert with an intelligent hystat power train to deliver fuel efficiency as standard.

Efficiently Powerful

Experience hybrid like fuel efficiency with an intelligent hydrostatic power train and industry leading fuel savings through a lower maximum engine speed of just 1,600 rpm in Standard Mode. Power when you need it with Caterpillar’s exclusive Power‑by-Range technology that increases power in Range 4 for improved speed on grade. For your toughest and most demanding applications a new Performance Mode will allow you to boost the power and hydraulic speed in all ranges to get the job done even quicker. Meets U.S. EPA Tier 3/EU Stage IIIA/Brazil MAR-1 equivalent emission standards with a Cat® C7.1 engine that is designed to manage itself so you can concentrate on your work.

Work Made Easy

Move more with Caterpillar's patented quick loading Performance Series buckets and optimized Z-bar linkage that combines the digging efficiency of a traditional Z-bar with tool carrier capabilities. The parallel lift and high tilt forces throughout the working range allow you to safely and confidently handle loads with precise control. Multi-function work has never been easier with dedicated pumps for each system and a flow sharing implement valve governed by an intelligent power management system. Simultaneously lift, steer and drive without compromise. The K Series Small Wheel Loader simply does what you ask it to do.

Enjoy All Day Comfort

Have a seat in the updated K Series Small Wheel Loader and enjoy excellent all around visibility and low-effort joystick controls that move with you on a fully adjustable seat suspension. A large spacious operator environment combined with Caterpillar's exclusive hydraulic cylinder damping and smooth predictable controls make this the most comfortable seat on your job site.

Customize Your Experience

Meet your application requirements and individual preferences with Caterpillar's industry first Hystat™ Operator Modes featuring four unique power train settings. Select classic Torque Converter for smooth rollout, conventional Hystat for aggressive engine braking, an Ice Mode that maximizes your control on slippery underfoot, or default mode which blends the best of Hystat and Torque Converter characteristics. Fine tune machine performance with adjustments at your fingertips through the soft touch buttons and optional secondary display. Quickly set hydraulic response along with linkage kick-out positions, maximum wheel torque, and peak ground speed to efficiently perform a multitude of tasks.
