A new class of machines that brings more versatility, power, performance, and operator comfort to your job.
State Of The Art TechnologyMore useful loading, lifting, and moving power is made possible by a careful balance of Caterpillar powertrain and hydraulic system components. Optimum machine balance gives higher tipping loads without additional power-robbing counterweight.
Modern Operator's EnvironmentThis new F-Series Cab provides enhanced visibility, ergonomic controls, new pilot hydraulic controls and offers a wide range adjustment to fit any operator.
High Production Loader DesignNew bucket design has improved load characteristics. Legendary Caterpillar Z-Bar linkage provides tremendous breakout force.
Ergonomically designed for total machine control in a comfortable, spacious environment. All controls, levers, switches and gauges are positioned to maximize productivity.
Operator ComfortThe F-Series cab combines Caterpillar's advanced human dynamics engineering with operators' most requested features. The result is a spacious work environment that promotes productive operation.
VisibilityMore glass and fewer obstructions are the key to the 924F's excellent all-around visibility. Clear silicon seals and bonded glass on the windshield help maximize forward visibility. New longer wiper arms provide clear visibility in adverse conditions.
Easy OperationNew pilot hydraulic controls give the 924F uncompromised ease of operation and precision.
More Seating OptionsThere is a wide choice of seat options. The Cat Contour Series Seat, right, is the premier seat option and is designed for maximum comfort and fully-adjustable support.
Rollover Protection SystemCaterpillar cab and Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) are standard in North America and Europe.
Falling Objects Protective Structure. Also meets the following criteria for Falling Objects Protective Structure: - SAE J231 JAN81. - ISO 3449-1984.
High Performance Power Train
The Caterpillar 3114T turbocharged diesel engine, full-match torque converter, countershaft power shift transmission and heavy duty axles form a responsive, reliable and fuel efficient power train with more useable rimpull.
Caterpillar 3114T EngineThe 924F operates at full-rated net power of 78.3 kW (105 hp). The 3114T turbocharged diesel engine delivers long power strokes and high torque rise.
Torque ConverterConverter provides the most efficient application of engine power for maximum rimpull and responsive implement hydraulics. Maximizes both fuel efficiency and performance.
Cat Power Shift TransmissionBuilt rugged for highly reliable service in tough applications, the Cat Powershift Transmission is an electrically-controlled countershaft transmission providing four forward and three reverse speed ranges.
Caterpillar Axle and Brakes
Enclosed design allows extended operation even in the harshest environments. Oil-disc brakes are adjustment-free and fully enclosed.
AxlesOscillating rear axle ensures four-wheel ground contact for optimum traction and stability. Fixed front, oscillating rear (±12 degree).
BrakesOil-disc brakes are adjustment-free and fully enclosed. Meets the following standards: OSHA, SAE J1473 OCT 90, ISO 3450-1985.
Final DrivesPlanetary final drives consist of ring gears and planetary carrier assemblies.
DifferentialsChoose from standard, NoSPIN or Limited Slip differentials to adapt to a wide range of operating conditions. Limited Slip differentials are available on front, rear or both axles.
BucketsNew Bucket design provides improved loadability of rehandled materials. Increased fill factors will lead to higher productivity. Designed for easy loading, high capacity and long life.
Frame StructureAll structural components of the 924F are integrated to form a stable, well-balanced system for best overall performance on a wide variety of applications.
Hydraulic SystemPilot-operated hydraulic controls are standard for easier operation. The hydraulic controls are a completely enclosed system with full-flow filtering and reusable couplings with O-Ring Face Seals.
ServiceabilityRemote rear axle trunnion lubrication points simplify regular maintenance. Coolant sight gauge is now the same as used on larger 928F... which makes checking easier.
