hydraulically actuated, electronically
controlled unit injection (HEUI) system.
A wastegate turbocharger, equipped
with a titanium wheel for improved
durability, combined with air-to-air
aftercooling (ATAAC) provides
consistent high horsepower with
increased altitude capability.
Electronic Controller. The engine is
governed by the ADEM™ A4 electronic
control module. The controller
continually adjusts engine output based
on load demand using a series of
sensors located on the machine and
engine.
6
Hydraulically Actuated Electronic Unit
Injectors (HEUI). The HEUI™ system has
been at work in Cat engines across the
product line with a proven track record
of consistent, durable, reliable
performance.
Engine Block and Pistons. The gray,
cast iron engine block is made of the
same material as the cylinder heads.
Wall diameters are thicker than in
previous designs while adjustments
have been made to reduce sound levels
and increase rigidity. One-piece all-steel
pistons are housed within a wet,
replaceable cast iron cylinder liner
constructed of high-strength, heattreated castings. Steel-forged
connecting rods are larger in diameter
and are connected to the crankshaft with
two bolts.
Cylinder Head. The cylinder head is a
one-piece design that incorporates
cross-flow design to facilitate air
movement. This allows the engine to
breathe cooler, cleaner air with less
effort.
RADIATOR. Brazed aluminum
construction provides a stronger joint
for maximum durability and resistance
to leaks. The 6-fins-per-inch, squarewave core design decreases the chance
of blockage and plugging.
POWERSHIFT TRANSMISSION. The
950H continues to use heavy-duty
powershift transmission technology
proven on previous models and
currently used up through the largest
wheel loader built by Caterpillar - the
994F.
The planetary powershift transmission
features heavy-duty components to
handle the toughest applications. Builtin electronic controls enhance shift
quality, productivity and durability.
Control Throttle Shifting. Control
Throttle Shifting regulates engine speed
during high-energy directional changes

individually to improve shift quality,
component life and operator comfort.
Adjustment is simplified with all
solenoid valves externally mounted on
top of the transmission housing.
AXLES. The 950H axles are designed by
Caterpillar for durability in all operating
conditions. The front axle is rigidly
mounted to the frame to support the
weight of the wheel loader and
withstand internal torque loads as well
as external forces encountered
throughout operation.
The rear axle is designed to allow ± 13°
oscillation. All four wheels remain on
the ground over uneven terrain
providing excellent stability and
traction.
Integrated Braking System. The Cat
exclusive Integrated Braking System
reduces axle oil temperatures and
improves transmission neutralizer
smoothness. IBS has a direct impact on
durability of the axles and brakes
especially in applications involving
long distances and/or heavy braking.
STRUCTURES. The articulated frame
design of the 950H features a durable
box-section engine frame and rigid
four-plate loader tower that is
robotically welded. Robotic welding
creates frame joints with deep plate
penetration welds and excellent fusion
for maximum strength and durability.
Engine End Frame (EEF). A full boxsection engine end frame with hitch
plates at the front end provides a strong,
rigid structure that resists twisting and
impact loads. The result is an extremely
solid mounting platform for the engine,
transmission, axle, ROPS and other
accessories.
Counterweight. The two-piece
counterweight is integrated into the
950H design and styling. This 1853 lb
(840 kg) counterweight incorporates the
rear lights into the top of the structure.
A heavy-duty counterweight, 3084 lb
(1399 kg), is optional for logging or
high-lift applications.
Spread Hitch. The distance between the
upper and lower hitch plates is an
important contributor to machine
performance and component life. The
Caterpillar spread hitch design provides
excellent load distribution and bearing
life. Both the upper and lower hitch pins
pivot on double tapered roller bearings improving durability by distributing
both vertical and horizontal loads over a
larger surface area. The wide opening
also provides excellent service access.
Linkage. The 950H linkage is a singletilt Z-bar design. Z-bar linkage
generates excellent breakout force and
good rack back angle for better bucket
loading and load retention.
Lift arms are solid steel, providing
superior strength with an excellent front
end viewing area. The proven design
offers excellent dump clearance and
reach for exceptional matching to both
on- and off-highway trucks.
Non-Engine End Frame (NEEF). The
non-engine end frame provides a solid
mounting base for the front axle, lift
arms, lift cylinders and tilt cylinders.
The fabricated, four-plate loader tower
absorbs the forces associated with
loading, twisting and penetration.
Rotary sensors, for the tilt lever and lift
circuit allow the operator to
electronically set detent positions from
the cab. A guard covers the sensor to
protect it from damage.

Standard and optional features that
maximize productivity
LOAD SENSING HYDRAULICS. The
950H features a load sensing hydraulic
system that automatically adjusts to
operating conditions to provide only the
hydraulic flow required by the
implement for improved fuel efficiency.
With the new M3PC Priority
Proportional Pressure Compensation
Valve, implement control is improved
over the previous system - raise/lower
and rack back/dump can be operated
simultaneously and fine modulation is
repeatable for improved productivity.
Operators will notice enhanced ease of
operation, more rimpull into the pile
and a 20% increase in lift force.
8
Electrohydraulic Implement Controls.

the 950H provide the operator with incab programmable kickouts to prevent
material spillage - improving
productivity. The implement control
console features an optional
Forward/Neutral/Reverse switch
allowing fast, easy directional changes
to reduce cycle times.
CONSTANT NET HORSEPOWER. On
many competitive machines, gross
horsepower is constant, meaning that
net engine power available for actual
work will vary based on demands made
from parasitic sources, such as air
conditioning or cooling fans.
The Cat C7 engine is electronically
configured to provide constant net
horsepower at full parasitic load
enhancing productivity and improving
fuel efficiency.
On-Demand Fan. With electronic control
of the variable speed on-demand fan,
temperature levels of the engine
coolant, transmission oil, hydraulic oil
and air inlet manifold are constantly
monitored. This data is used to control
and maintain fan speed at the level
necessary to maintain normal system
temperatures. Controlled fan speed
improves fuel efficiency, lowers noise
levels and reduces radiator plugging.
Separated Cooling System. Many
competitive loaders use cooling systems
that pull air in from the sides, through
the engine compartment and exhaust it
out the rear of the machine. The 950H
cooling system is isolated from the
engine compartment by a non-metallic
shield. The hydraulically driven,
variable speed fan draws in clean air
from the rear of the machine and
exhausts it out the sides and top of the
hood. The end results are optimal
cooling efficiency, increased fuel
efficiency, less radiator plugging and
reduced operator sound levels.
PLANETARY POWERSHIFT
TRANSMISSION. The electronic
planetary powershift transmission with
automatic shift capability is designed
and built by Caterpillar. The very
responsive, full-power speed and
directional changes provide excellent
cycle times and productivity.
VARIABLE SHIFT CONTROL. Match
transmission shifting patterns to
machine application requirements.
Variable Shift Control (VSC) improves
shift quality and fuel efficiency in
certain applications by allowing the
transmission to upshift at lower engine
RPMs.
RIDE CONTROL. The optional Ride
Control System improves ride,
performance and load retention when
traveling over rough terrain. Operators
gain confidence moving at higher
speeds in load and carry operations
decreasing cycle times and increasing
productivity.
PAYLOAD CONTROL SYSTEM. Scales,
designed specifically for Cat machines
allow on-the-go weighing of material in
the bucket. Operators load trucks more
accurately and efficiently. Loading
trucks right the first time equates to
quicker cycles for the operator and
more productivity and controllability
for your operation.
Payload Control is offered as a factoryinstalled option. Driver tickets and a
variety of reports can be printed with
the addition of the optional printer.
AGGREGATE AUTODIG. Well-received
by both experienced and novice
operators, the optional Aggregate
Autodig automates the loading process.
AUTOLUBE. The optional Caterpillar
Autolube System provides precise,
automatic lubrication of pins and
bushings - during loader operation.
Automatic lubrication reduces time
spent on daily maintenance and
downtime for unplanned repairs due to
inadequate greasing - improving
productivity.
Aggregate Autodig provides smoother
loading cycles, consistently full
payloads and eliminates tire spin - all
without touching the controls.

minimizing operator fatigue.
STEERING OPTIONS. The 950H offers a
choice of steering systems to provide
flexibility for your application.
Conventional Steering. The
conventional steering configuration
offers a low-effort hand metering unit
hydraulic steering system. Load sensing
steering directs power through the
steering system only when needed.
When not steering, more engine power
is available to generate rimpull,
breakout force, lift force, and results in
reduced fuel consumption. The steering
column tilts for maximum operator
comfort.
Command Control Steering. Command
Control Steering is a load-sensing
system that links the steering wheel and
frame angle positions to provide the
proper amount of steering control. The
speed the machine turns is proportional
to the steering wheel position. Less than
6 lb (26 N) steering effort is required by
the operator, regardless of conditions.
Full machine articulation is
accomplished with a ±70° turn of the
wheel - versus two to three 360° turns
of a conventional steering wheel.
The Command Control Steering wheel
contains the forward/neutral/reverse
switch and the upshift/downshift button
- allowing the left hand to remain on
the steering wheel at all times.
Implement controls are integrated into
the right armrest so they move with the
operator.

converter improves power train
efficiency in load and carry operations
which contributes to the improved fuel
efficiency of the 950H.
FUEL EFFICIENCY. Many manufacturers
tout fuel consumption as one of the
determining factors for machine
acquisition, but fuel consumption is
only part of the story. Productivity must
also play a part in the decision. Even
more importantly, how fuel
consumption and productivity interact fuel efficiency - should be considered.
Warm-Up Mode. Keep the engine at a
consistent temperature in cold
conditions.
Low Voltage Mode. Prevent battery
drain due to high electrical loads from
attachments and accessories.

tracks critical machine systems to alert
the operator to potential need for
service. Three levels of warning allow
the operator to assess the situation more
accurately.
Product Link. With Product Link
owners can collect and track multiple
types of information - from machine
location and service meter hours, to
health and productivity information.
EquipmentManager. With a
subscription to EquipmentManager
information from Product Link can be
transmitted to a computer. Return on
equipment investment is optimized
through maintenance management and
improved uptime.
Machine Security System. Stolen
equipment equates to lost production
and increased costs. Eliminate machine
theft and unauthorized usage with the
Cat Machine Security System (MSS).
MSS is integrated into the machine’s
electronic system and can protect most
brands of equipment by requiring a
uniquely coded key to start the machine.
S•O•S Services. Managing component
life and machine availability decreases
downtime while improving your
productivity and efficiency. S•O•S SM
Services can help you do that. Regular
fluid sampling is used to track what is
going on inside the equipment. Wearrelated problems are predictable and
easily and quickly repairable.
Maintenance can be done according to
your schedule, resulting in increased
uptime and flexibility in maintenance
and repair before failure.
RESALE VALUE. Owning quality
equipment is a very important factor in
maintaining resale value. Cat not only
supplies quality equipment but also
provides product and dealer support to
maintain the reliability and durability of
your machine.
PARTS AVAILABILITY. Caterpillar
provides an unsurpassed level of
personalized service for your wheel
loader. With parts distribution centers
worldwide, most parts can be delivered
in 24 hours. Easy access to parts
reduces downtime.
Customer Support Agreements. A
Customer Support Agreement (CSA) is
any arrangement between you and your
Cat dealer that helps you lower your
total cost per unit of production. CSAs
are flexible, allowing them to be
tailored to your business. They can
range from simple Preventive
Maintenance Kits to sophisticated Total
Cost Performance Guarantees. Having a
CSA with your Cat dealer allows you
more time to do what you do best - run
your business.
Caterpillar Equipment Training
Solutions. A thorough understanding of
machine systems and a high level of
skill in operation helps achieve
maximum efficiency and improves
return on investment. Caterpillar
Equipment Training Solutions programs
help provide operators with high levels
of proficiency and confidence. Contact
your Cat Dealer for more information
on Caterpillar Equipment Training
Solutions programs.
Caterpillar Financial Services
Corporation. Cat Financial understands
your business, your industry and the
challenges you face. That’s why they

SERVICEABILITY
Easy To Maintain - Easy To Service
•
Grouped service points and sight
gauges for easy daily maintenance
•
Convenient access to engine
compartment for excellent
serviceability
•
Swing-out grill and cooling cores for
easy cleaning
•
Electronic systems to monitor
product health
AUTOLUBE. Reduce time spent on daily
maintenance and downtime for
unplanned repairs due to inadequate
greasing with the optional Caterpillar
Automatic Lubrication System. Precise
lubrication of pins and bushings at
specific intervals improves component
wear and reduces ground contamination
from excessive greasing.
ELECTRIC SERVICE CENTER. Batteries,
relay panel and an optional tool box are
conveniently located below the left-side
access platform. The engine shutdown
switch is housed with the relay panel. A
compartment integrated into the access
platform contains the hood tilt actuation
switch, master switch and jump-start
receptacle.
HYDRAULIC SERVICE CENTER.
Transmission oil and hydraulic filters
are located in the Hydraulic Service
Center, behind the hinged, right-side
access ladder. The hydraulic oil tank
can be drained from this location using
the access port.
•
Hydraulic filter change interval at
500 hours
•

GROUND LEVEL GREASE POINTS.
Grease fittings are grouped on the right
side of the machine in two convenient
locations - in a service compartment
just below the right-side service
platform, and a bank located just off the
non-engine end frame. These locations
facilitate easy lubrication of vital
components located throughout the
machine.
REMOTE PRESSURE TAPS. Pressure
taps for the steering and hydraulic
systems, transmission (optional) and
brakes are grouped behind an access
panel just below the right-side service
platform.
S•O•S SERVICES. Sampling valves on
the 950H allow quick access to engine,
transmission and hydraulic oils for
S•O•S analysis. Oil change intervals
and other services can be optimized
according to your work schedule,
reducing downtime and managing
expenses.
A single mechanical lift cylinder with
manual back-up opens the hood. The
tilting hood provides excellent access to
the engine compartment, and if
necessary, the entire hood can be
removed with the built-in lift points.
With the hood closed, quick checks of
engine oil levels and the coolant sight
gauge can be completed through the
side service doors.
Panels located behind the tires lift up
and can be removed for additional
access. Roading fenders hinge from the
rear and swing out allowing easier
access to the engine compartment.
The full-width air conditioning
condenser and oil cooler cores swing
out 45° to allow easy cleaning of the
rear radiator face. Access panels on
either side of the radiator support
structure provide access to the front
face of the radiator and ATAAC cores
for easy cleaning.
SIGHT GAUGES. Well-protected, yet
easily visible sight gauges for the
transmission, hydraulic oil and radiator
coolant allow easy daily checks while
reducing the risk of contaminants
entering the systems.
BRAKE WEAR INDICATORS. Axles are
equipped with standard brake wear
indicators, allowing a technician to
easily determine when it is necessary to
service the brakes.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT ACCESS. The
non-metallic hood on the 950H has
been redesigned and restyled from
previous models. Side and top panels
are stronger due to more robust
reinforcement ribs - the change in
contour also adds to rigidity of the
hood.
COOLING SYSTEM. Cooling system
access for clean-out and maintenance is
outstanding. The perforated and
corrugated grill minimizes debris buildup and swings out for easy cleaning and
access to the cooling cores.
CAB. The entire operator station can be
removed in about 45 minutes and is
easy to re-attach. Quick disconnects are
used so no wires need to be cut and no
refrigerant is lost.
ELECTRIC PRIMING PUMP. An electric
fuel priming pump located on the
primary fuel filter base eliminates the
need to pre-fill or manually prime filters
after a change, eliminating engine
contamination.
ECOLOGY DRAINS. Engine,
transmission and hydraulic oils can be
easily drained with standard-equipment
ecology drains. An axle oil ecology
drain is optional.
Cab cleaning is made easy with
channels on the cab floor and no
threshold at the door - the floor can be
swept or mopped out easily.
WINDSHIELD CLEANING PACKAGE. An
optional windshield cleaning package
consists of two steps for the loader front
frame, two additional handrails and a
folding mirror. This package allows
access to the entire front windshield for
easy cleaning.
COMPLETE CUSTOMER SUPPORT. Cat
field service technicians have the
experience and tools necessary to
service your loader on site. Technical
experts at the dealership and Caterpillar
can provide additional assistance to
field service technicians as needed.
