About this equipment

Coming from the AEMP 2024 Fleet Masters Large Fleets Award Winner, this fully rebuilt 2005 Caterpillar 966F II is a robust wheel loader with 8,311 hours of operation (original build year 1992). It features a 10 foot general purpose bucket, auxiliary hydraulics, quick coupler, an enclosed cab with A/C and heat. Powered by a 260 horsepower Cat C9 diesel engine, it has an operating weight of 45,714 lbs. The engine and transmission are in good condition, with rear tires at 50% tread. The inspection also reported some dried seepages throughout the engine compartment, some leaking hydraulic seals, and areas cosmetic wear. The hour meter on this machine is recently replaced, but had not been calibrated at the time of inspection, so its function was not verified.
