Caterpillar's newest track loader pairs fuel efficiency with versatility

Cat® 963 Track Loader at work on a mound of dirt

The new Cat 963 track loader combines that versatility with up to 10 percent better fuel efficiency, more productivity and cab and controllability improvements. 

The 963 is easy to operate from an updated cab with suspension seat and adjustable armrests/controls.  An intuitive 10-inch (254 mm) touchscreen dash display is easy to use and features a standard High Definition rearview camera.  Slope Indicate helps make operation easier by showing machine mainfall and cross slope right on the display.

The 963 is powered by a Cat C7.1 engine that produces 15 percent more peak torque than the previous model for more power to the ground under load.

Up to 10% fuel consumption reduction is achieved with the Auto Mode that will adapt the engine speed to the load. Eco Mode will use even lower speed for further reduction in fuel consumption in lighter duty applications. Power Mode will keep engine speed high to feel readily available power at all times.

An optional Performance Series bucket boosts productivity up to 20 percent. An optional Fusion Quick Coupler enables fast attachment changes. A variety of buckets, forks and other tools can be shared among track loaders, wheel loaders and other Fusion compatible machines.

Cat LINK telematics technology helps take the complexity out of managing job sites by gathering data generated by equipment, materials, and people, and serving it up in customizable formats. Product Link collects data automatically and accurately from equipment assets - any type and any brand - which can be viewed online through web and mobile applications.

Additionally, the Cat App can help manage assets from a smartphone. Remote Troubleshoot saves time and money by allowing Cat dealers to perform diagnostic testing remotely, while Remote Flash updates on-board software without a technician being present, at a convenient time, potentially reducing update time by as much as 50 percent.
