992 Wheel Loader

The Cat® 992 Large Wheel Loader has set the standard in its size class for more than 50 years, delivering industry-leading productivity, unparalleled reliability and long life. Today’s 992 raises the bar. Compared to the 992K, the new 992 is up to 48% more efficient and 32% more productive, thanks to higher payload for improved pass match, increases in rimpull and breakout force, and an optimized linkage design. Extended component replacement intervals plus increased filter and turbo life help reduce maintenance costs. These improvements — and many more — combine to provide significant savings over the life of the machine for the lowest owning and operating costs in the industry. With both standard and high-lift configurations, the 992 offers the ideal pass match for fleets of Cat 775, 777 and 785 trucks.

  • Increased rated payload, which allows for a a 4-pass match to a 90.7-tonne (100-ton) truck in all applications.
  • Better digging thanks to 20% more breakout force compared to previous models, with no increase in cycle time; 9.5% boost in rimpull; and increased traction.
  • Superior loading with Cat Performance Series Buckets, which deliver easier, faster loading; increased fill factors and material retention; larger bucket volume; and better bucket and machine stability due to the payload being lower and closer to the machine.
  • Greater stability, thanks to an increase in static tipping load and greater tipping-to-weight ratio, which helps operators be more confident and productive.


  • Tire Slip Prevention, which reduces rimpull when there is less downforce on the tire and increases rimpull when there is more downforce on the tire — providing maximum rimpull when you can use it.
  • Tire Set, which automatically applies a lift command at the optimal time to increase traction on the tire, allowing for an increase in usable rimpull.
  • Lift Stall Prevention, which automatically applies the impeller clutch when necessary to prevent hydraulic stall when lifting up through the face — keeping the lift motion continuous, without excessive use of the impeller clutch.
  • Positive Flow Control Hydraulic System, which boosts efficiency with concurrent pump and valve control and increases bucket feel and control to deliver consistent performance.
  • On-demand throttle feature that allows operators to maintain normal operation with the left pedal and implements while the 992 manages the engine speed.


  • Reduced time spent on regular maintenance procedures thanks to features such as ground-level or platform access to filters; grouped service points; swing-out doors on both sides of the engine compartment; improved access for engine and pump drive service as well as to cooling package; and automatic lubrication system that greases the linkage, hitch, steering and axle trunnion bearings.
  • Relocated service station that provides easy access to functions such as coolant and oil as well as level indicators; Cat battery charging connector; and indicator lights for full fuel tanks.

  • Approved for higher payloads in low to moderate digging resistance applications; increased payload intended for rehandled material in the ROM pad area or stockpile material, such as coal.
  • Variety of bucket options, including limestone bucket; granite buckets for use in high-abrasion production applications; heavy-duty rock buckets for applications like face loading tightly compacted pit materials or handling materials of moderate abrasion and high impact; coal buckets for light density non-abrasive materials; and iron ore buckets for extremely aggressive applications.
  • New Performance Series Buckets that feature extended floor, dual radius and angled side bars for fast loading; larger bottom box section for increased strength, high fill factors and good material retention; and taller side plate with a level top surface improves operator visibility to the bucket from the cab.
  • Cat Ground Engaging Tools (GET) that feature CapSure™ Retention Technology, which simplifies component replacement with hammerless retention for fast, easy and safe installation.


  • New C32B engine improved for increased durability.
  • Use of structural castings at the high-stress locations where the lift arm and front axle mount; and improvements to the axle cutout, upper hitch design and rear trunnion mounting.
  • Loads efficiently transmitted by the field-proven solid steel lift arms and reinforced pin joint bores.
  • Powertrain improvements including 20% increase in Planned Component Replacement interval of drivetrain components; increase in axle housing size, which enabled the elimination of the brake anchor and integration of brakes into the housing; 23% increase in oscillation joint diameter, which greatly increases surface area and reduces bearing wear; and increased hardness on Output Transfer Gears (OTG).
  • Frame, powertrain, engine and components that all built to be rebuilt — using new, remanufactured or rebuilt parts and components — to deliver multiple lives of like-new performance at a fraction-of-new price.


  • Cat MineStar™ Terrain for loading, which provides real-time feedback on payloads and design plan progress to increases productivity and accuracy, reduce rework, enhance ore control and improve shift-to-shift operator performance.
