Structures and Cast Box Boom
Superior design of structures, along with bold, new cast-steel, box section front linkage, provide superior strength.
Structures on the 992GThe structures on the 992G combine the use of robotic welding and castings in critical high-stress areas.
Full Box-SectionFull box-section frame designed for maximum strength and minimum weight.
Box-shaped cylinder towerBox-shaped cylinder tower is designed for improved resistance to twisting for maximum strength.
Upper and Lower Hitch-PinsUpper and lower hitch-pins pivot on double-tapered roller bearings and are shaped to direct stress away from the end of the weld, resulting in a smoother transition of stress loads.
Spread-hitch designSpread-hitch design helps square up the frame while providing increased clearance for access to the hitch and hydraulic lines.
Steering Cylinder MountsSteering cylinder mounts are loacated on the outboard side of the front frame to increase component clearances and structural strength, while improving serviceability.
Six linkage joints are oil-filledSix linkage joints are oil-filled, low maintenance joints which do not require daily service.
One-piece, box-section, steel casting boomOne-piece, box-section, steel casting boom design replaces the traditional steel plate lift arms associated with wheel loaders.
Box-section design of the cast box boomBox-section design of the cast box boom delivers three times the torsional loading strength of the previous design.

Heavy-Duty Mining SystemThis system features independently attached edge and adapter covers, one set of sidebar protectors, and half radius liners.
Heavy-duty Quarry BucketThe Heavy-duty Quarry Bucket is recommended for use in face loading where moderate abrasion and high impact is encountered. This bucket features additional wear protection items, including: thicker base edge and adapters, additional liners and wear plates, bolt-on half arrow segments, and four sidebar protectors.
Hydraulics and Electronic Monitoring
Precise, low-effort control and trouble-free operation of well balanced hydraulics, combined with electronic controls and machine diagnostics, provide optimized performance and durability.
Revolutionary electro-hydraulic systemRevolutionary electro-hydraulic control system uses separate hydraulic circuits for the implement/engine fan and steering/brake control.
Lift and tilt systemLift and tilt system consists of larger bore lift and tilt cylinders and a combination of variable and fixed displacement pumps contributing to increased performance and serviceability.
Case Drain FiltrationCase Drain Filtration is included throughout the hydraulic system to protect against contamination.
Vital Information Display System (VIDS)Vital Information Display System (VIDS) is a user friendly display system that provides operators and service technicians with information on the machines major components and system.
Optional Vital Information Management System (VIMS)Optional Vital Information Management System (VIMS) is an upgrade to the VIDS system.
Load Sensing SteeringLoad Sensing Steering with STIC control system integrates steering and transmission into a single controller. The steering system utilizes a variable displacement pump for maximum machine performance by direction power through the steering system only when needed.
Operator's Station and Controls
Comfort and control-top quality operator's station will help maximize productivity.

STIC control systemSTIC control system provides a fluid motion that reduces effort and allows the operator to work the machine for long periods of time with little or no fatigue.
Left brake pedalLeft brake pedal operates impeller clutch torque converter.
Contour Series SeatContour Series Seat with air suspension and retractable seat belt is designed for comfort and support.
Floor mounted Electro-hydraulic Controls and arm restsFloor mounted Electro-hydraulic Controls and arm rests provide low effort, finger tip control for enhanced comfort and stability.
Vital Information Display System (VIDS)Vital Information Display System (VIDS) is the standard display system that provides information on the machine's major components and systems.
Optional Vital Information Management System (VIMS)Optional Vital Information Management System (VIMS) is an upgrade to the VIDS system that monitors additional components and includes Payload Control System.
Automatic kickoutsAutomatic kickouts for lift, lower, and bucket tilt are adjustable electronically from the cab.
Throttle LockThrottle Lock allows operator to preset the engine speed for a variety of applications, resulting in faster cycle times and increased productivity.
Rimpull Control System SwitchRimpull Control System Switch turns RCS on and off.
Rimpull Control System (RCS)Rimpull Control System (RCS) has four factory preset reduced rimpull settings (80, 65, 50 and 35 percent of rimpull).
Optional Ride ControlOptional Ride Control Switch turns Ride Control on and off.
Quick Shift FeatureQuick Shift feature allow quicker cycle times by automatically shifting from 1st forward to 2nd reverse.
Improved viewing areaBonded glass in the front window eliminates distracting metal frames and the narrow loader boom and single tilt cylinder provide excellent operator visibility to the bucket.
Less time spent on maintenance gives you more time on the job.
Easier maintenance and RepairEasier maintenance and repair through monitoring key functions and logging critical indicators.
