PowerTech™ EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV engine coupled with a hybrid-electric drive can provide significant fuel savings over 9-cubic-yard loaders with conventional drivetrains.*
The FT4 update reduces fuel consumption by 9 to 14 percent over EPA Interim Tier 4 (IT4)/EU Stage IIIB models.
*Actual fuel-consumption rates and savings will vary with machine application, utilization, operator, and model of competitive unit.
Flow-sharing hydraulic system boasts the fastest cycle times and the quickest boom-raise time in the 944K’s size class, speeding short-pattern truck loading. Each boom and bucket function has its own hydraulic pump for quick, smooth operation, and faster truck loading.
Front fender has been cut back to enable greater visibility to the front tire, so the operator can see when slippage occurs. Fender extensions are available.
Engine runs at a choice of three constant operator-selected rpms, so boom and bucket functions are powerful, responsive, and quick, while optimum fuel efficiency is maintained. Reduces overall machine noise and operator fatigue.
Hybrid-electric drive smoothly and efficiently recaptures energy while slowing the loader when the operator lets off the accelerator. This lessens the load on the engine and reduces fuel consumption.
Generators, brake resistors, wheel motors, and inverters are warranted for 8 years or 20,000 hours, whichever occurs first.*
Quad-Cool design places coolers in a boxed configuration that’s isolated from engine heat, for increased efficiency and durability.
Coast-control feature functions like dynamic braking in a hydrostatic transmission, slowing the loader without touching a pedal and helping reduce service-brake component wear.
