Low effort

pilot hydraulics and an ergonomically designed joystick with adjustable wrist rest maximizes operator comfort and minimizes fatigue. The molded-in Forward/Neutral/Reverse switch is simple to use.

Spacious cab

offers plenty of storage space and is equipped with many convenient features:
  • Fully adjustable suspension seat.
  • Suspended pedals and flat floor.
  • Ground level door releases.
  • Three-speed fan with eleven vents.
  • Front and rear wet wipers.
  • Cup holder and coat hook.
  • Auxiliary power sockets.
  • Lockable tool box.

Easy to read dash

features backlit LED display with gauges within close view, including fuel level and hydraulic oil temperature. Sealed switches provide year of dependable service.

Power Train

Caterpillar hystat power train delivers aggressive performance and easy operation.


closed-loop hydrostatic transmission delivers smooth shifting transition from full rimpull to runout. Precise inching control and smooth acceleration and deceleration minimize operator fatigue.

Rear axle

oscillates ±11 degrees, giving the machine superior control, stability and traction in all applications, especially grading work.

Limited slip

front differential provides excellent traction in a wide variety of working conditions.

Unique brake reservoir

is self-replenishing for maintenance free service.

VersaLink Loader Linkage and QuickLock Hydraulic Coupler

Linkage design offers unparalleled versatility and superior performance.

Narrow design

of the VersaLink loader linkage offers optimum visibility to each side of the QuickLock Hydraulic Coupler and Work Tool. This provides operators with an excellent view of the work area, including loading and dumping targets.

Parallel lift

capability allows precise pallet handling, eliminating the need to adjust level while raising the forks. Operators can concentrate on load placement rather than load leveling.

Long reach

lets the operator place loads more easily, while protecting the tires and front frame.

Optimized linkage

design and powerful hydraulics result in excellent breakout force for buckets and high lift force with forks. Fast, controllable hydraulics provide short cycle times.

Large contact area

of the QuickLock hydraulic coupler absorbs impact loads. Wedges with check valves keep work tools secure and rattle free.


Quick access and superior design features make the 902 Compact Wheel Loader easy to service.
