New touchscreen displays on Cat small wheeled loader models have the Caterpillar Payload Management system available. The management system’s tip-off capability tells the operator that there is sufficient weight in the bucket before leaving the pile that is being shovelled, increasing machine productivity.

This is one of a series of recent engineering enhancements to the Stage IV Cat M Series small wheeled loaders (SWL) – 926M, 930M and 938M, as well as the K Series models (924K, 930K, 938K).

By giving the operator the ability to place the proper amount of material in the mixer, hopper or truck the first time, every time, it reduces the number of cycles and maximises profit potential, Caterpillar says.

The operator sets the target loading weight and monitors the cumulative amount of material loaded into a truck or hopper, which helps to prevent overloading. Additionally, the available system printer gives the operator the ability to print up to three copies of a recorded weight ticket. Since Caterpillar Payload Management is fully integrated into the machine, the site manager can track information like the amount of material moved and number of trucks loaded with the use of the VisionLink system.
