provided through the well-proven
Caterpillar mechanically actuated,
electronically controlled unit injection
(MEUI) 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 an electronic control
module designated the A4:E4V2.
The controller continually adjusts
engine output based on load demand
using a series of sensors located on
the machine and engine.

Mechanically Actuated Electronic
Unit Injectors (MEUI). The MEUI
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 allsteel 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.
Powershift Transmission. The 966H
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.
Built-in electronic controls enhance
productivity and durability.
Throttle Shifting Control.
Controlled Throttle Shifting regulates
engine speed during high-energy
directional changes for smoother
shifting and longer component life.
Caterpillar Designed Components.
Components used to build Cat Wheel
Loaders are designed and manufactured
to Caterpillar quality standards to ensure
maximum performance even in extreme
operating conditions.
Engine electronic control module and
sensors are completely sealed against
moisture and dust. Deutsch connectors
and electrical wire braiding ensure that
electrical connections resist corrosion
and premature wear.
Hoses are engineered and manufactured
for high resistance to abrasion,
excellent flexibility and easy installation
and replacement.
Caterpillar hose couplings use o-ring
face seals to provide positive sealing

C
Caterpillar Monitoring System.
The 966H is equipped with the Cat
Monitoring System (CMS) that keeps
watch over the health of your loader.
CMS monitors critical engine system
functions and will derate the engine to
protect itself from damage if needed.
Depending on which of the following
six critical conditions arise, the CMS
monitor or front panel will display
warning lights and sound audible alarms.
High coolant temperature
High air inlet temperature
Low engine oil pressure
High fuel pressure
Low fuel pressure
Engine over-speed
Axles. The 966H 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 (IBS).
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.
A Downshift logic only
B Brake application initiated
C Self-adjusting transmission

Structures. The articulated frame
design of the 966H 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.
Rear Frame. A full box-section 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.
Spread Hitch. The distance between the
upper and lower hitch plates is important
for machine performance and component
life. The Cat 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.
Front Frame. The non-engine end frame
provides a solid mounting base for the
front axle, lift arms, lift cylinders and tilt
cylinder. The fabricated, four-plate loader
tower absorbs the forces associated with
loading, twisting and penetration.
Linkage. The 966H 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. The Z bars' light weight
compared to other linkage designs allows
for more payload capacity. 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 on- and off-highway trucks.
Rotary sensors, for the tilt lever and lift
circuit allow the operator to electronically
set detent positions from the cab.

Productivity and Versatility
Work Smart And Move More
Load sensing hydraulics increase
lifting capacities
Electro hydraulic controls reduce
cycle times
Consistent horsepower regardless
of conditions
A variety of buckets and work tools
for many applications
Load Sensing Hydraulics. The 966H
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 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.
Electrohydraulic Implement Controls.
Finger Tip Electro hydraulic implement
controls on the 966H provide the
operator with responsive, smooth and
precise control of bucket and lift arms.
The implement control console also
features a Forward/Neutral/Reverse
switch allowing easy and fast directional
changes that helps reducing cycle times.
6
The standard programmable automatic
kick-outs provide flexibility and
productivity for precise load and dump
target heights. Tilt, lift and return-to-dig
kickouts are set by positioning the
bucket or work tool and setting a rocker
switch in the cab.
Constant 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 C11 engine is electronically
configured to provide constant net
horsepower at full parasitic load
enhancing productivity and improving
fuel efficiency.
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 966H
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 Power Shift Transmission.
Increases number of cycles per hour.
The electronic planetary power shift
transmission with automatic shift
capability is designed, developed and
built by Caterpillar. The electronically
controlled power shift transmission allows
full power, very responsive directional
changes that have a direct impact on
machine cycle times and productivity.
The operator can choose between manual
or autoshift modes.
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.
Aggregate Autodig. Well-received by
both experienced and novice operators,
the optional Aggregate Autodig fully
automates the loading process.

the cabin floor.
8
Steering Options. The 966H offers two
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.
This 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
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. The CCS column inclines 35° and
the telescopic change is up to 100 mm.
Controls. The main control panel on the
966H is located high on the right ROPS
post – keeping everything within reach
of the operator while maintaining
visibility to the ground. Keeping all
switches and controls conveniently
placed allows better operator efficiency
and improved productivity, while
minimizing operator fatigue.
Aggregate Autodig System. It provides
smoother loading cycles and consistently
full payloads without touching the
controls – reducing operator fatigue.
Visibility. The 966H provides excellent
visibility to both the front and rear of
the machine. Distortion-free flat glass
stretches to the floor of the cab for
excellent visibility to the bucket. Wetarm wipers on both front and back keep
the windows clean in any condition.
The cab roof has channels that direct
rain off the corners of the cab keeping
windows clear. An overhang on all
sides protects the operator from glare.
Rear Vision Camera. An optional rear
vision camera is available to clearly
monitor movement behind the wheel
loader.
Lighting Packages. Optional lighting
packages are available for roading or
low-light applications. The optional
High Intensity Discharge (HID) lights
provide exceptional lighting for night
work. A rotating beacon is available as
a safety feature.
Windshield Cleaning Package.
An optional windshield cleaning
package provides additional steps and
handrails to provide easy access for
cleaning the front windows.
Entry and Exit. A ladder with selfcleaning steps keeps debris build-up
to a minimum. The ladder is at a 5°
forward incline for easy entry and exit.
