906H2 Compact Wheel Loader

Works in a wide range of applications.

Features

This low cab machine provides access to more areas on site and applications allowing for low entry machines. It is designed with simplicity and cost effectiveness in mind while still delivering great all-round performance to work in a wide range of applications.
  • 0.9 m3 operating capacity
  • Low cost rental specification (option)
  • Low height over cab
  • 18" rim size

Operator Station

Modern interior, high quality, with an intuitive design.

Excellent Visibility

Visibility to the worksite has been kept to an optimum with two fully glazed doors, front low-level glazing, excellent rear visibility and a clear view to the work tool through the loader arms.

Cab Comfort

Two armrests and an adjustable wrist rest as standard, intuitively laid out controls, low effort joysticks and steering are some of the features which give maximum operator comfort.

Digital LED Display

All models feature a red backlit machine status cluster, with speedometer, located conveniently within the operator’s line of sight.

Multi Function Joystick

Contains Forward-Neutral-Reverse switch, travel speed selector, 3rd auxiliary hydraulics, diff?lock and constant flow controls. A mechanical joystick option is available for the 906H2.

Cab Options

With a variety of options it is easy to customize the cab to meet your requirements. A choice of three cab trims and a canopy are available.

Power Train

Cat Hystat power train delivers aggressive performance.

Two Speed Options

The Cat hydrostatic driveline has two speed options, 20 km/h or 35 km/h. The 35 km/h speeder includes secondary steering. Both options feature smooth inching as standard, with optional travel speed, rimpull control and hand throttle (transmission control upgrade).

Disc Brakes

The 35 km/h speeder version has hydraulically boosted oil immersed disc brakes fitted to both ends of the front axle. The 20 km/h version has a hydraulically actuated dry disc brake, both offering smooth and effective braking. The braking is applied through all four wheels.

Diff-lock

The Cat Compact Wheel Loaders offer 100% diff-lock, in both axles as an option throughout the range. Diff-lock can be easily engaged on the move to allow travel over poor underfoot conditions.

Chassis Oscillation

Oscillating chassis helps assure four wheel ground contact for optimum traction and stability.

Ride Control

The ride control system further enhances the already smooth road handling of the machine, resulting in increased operator comfort and higher productivity. It is suited for extreme applications where operators need to maintain bucket load material and have a smooth ride. There are three modes available: auto, on and off. Recommended for use with the 35 km/h speeder option.

Couplers

Making the Compact Wheel Loader even more versatile.

Horizontal Pin Coupler

This quick coupler will pick up the new range of Cat Compact Wheel Loader work tools. The coupler along with the profiled loader arms have been designed to give maximum visibility to the work tool. A simple joystick function allows for easy engagement and disengagement of the locking pins.

Skid Steer Loader Coupler

The universal skid steer loader coupler allows the use of many Cat Skid Steer Loader work tools. Using either the standard or high flow hydraulic option, this coupler allows the H2 Series Compact Wheel Loaders to integrate into a skid steer loader fleet.

Z-bar Loader Linkage

The ideal linkage for Compact Wheel Loaders.

Z-bar Design

Cat Compact Wheel Loaders make use of the high performance Z-bar loader design which has been optimized for strength, visibility and versatile attachment usage. The Z-bar linkage gives the operator a clear view to the work tool and excellent dump clearance while maintaining good cycle times and parallel lift.

Work Tools

A range of buckets, forks and hydraulically powered work tools optimize machine performance.

Wide Range of Work Tools

To maximize machine utilization, Cat work tools are designed to get the best out of the machine and deliver excellent value through high productivity and long life. The new H2 Series Compact Wheel Loaders can now pick up even more work tools with the addition of a choice of couplers.

Work Tools for Cat Horizontal Pin Coupler

The Cat Compact Wheel Loader offers a comprehensive range of buckets to suit any environment and specific customer needs. The buckets have been designed and engineered to endure the high breakout forces of the H2 Series Compact Wheel Loader. The Cat fork carriage has been designed to increase visibility to the forks, allowing the operator to work much more efficiently and safely, without compromising durability. Various fork tine lengths are available.

Work Tools for Cat Skid Steer Loader Coupler

This coupler allows the use of Cat Skid Steer Loader work tools. Caterpillar recommends the following options when choosing the Cat Skid Steer Loader coupler:

The H2 Series Compact Wheel Loaders are fitted with heavy duty axles, with outboard planetary reduction gears.

Wiring

With heavy-duty braided wiring, Cat Compact Wheel Loaders offer great electrical durability. The water resistant sealed connectors prevent dust and moisture interfering with the electrics. Multicolored and numbered wiring is used for easy component identification.

Durable Design

Durability has been designed into the machine by offering protection to features such as the rear lights, loader arm and coupler greasing points.

Quality Throughout

High quality solid plastics, well-fitted rubber moldings make up the foundation of the H2 Series cab. Robust IP67 standard switches are used throughout, ensuring long life of components.
