Is a six cylinder, turbocharged and aftercooled 3406E Electronic Unit Injector (EUI) which is powerful enough for the most demanding work.
  • Tier 2 compliant
  • Four stroke engine features direct fuel injection for efficient, accurate fuel metering and excellent fuel economy.
  • Oil cooled pistons and full-length, water-cooled cylinder liners maintain maximum heat tranfer for long component life.
  • Turbocharging and ATAAC provide consistent, high horsepower, while ATAAC also provides for increased altitude capability.

The 980G Series II features a Free Wheel Stator Torque Convertor (FWSTC). A FWSTC improves machine power train efficiency in certain applications and contributes to the improved fuel efficiency of the 980GII. A torque converter provides a larger/broader output load potential than the engine can provide alone, reducing the need for very low speed gears and the number of gears required from a direct drive configuration.

Provide all around performance and are useful in stockpiling and rehandling applications, as well as excavating and bank loading where breakout force is required. General purpose buckets accept standard Caterpillar bolt-on cutting edges, and base edges are pre-drilled for the GET Corner Guard System. Several general purpose bucket combinations are available, ranging in capacity from 4.2 m3 (5.5 yd3) to 5.7 m3 (7.5 yd3) available. These combinations are based on four basic bucket sizes: 4.2 m3 (5.5 yd3), 4.7 m3 (6.0 yd3), 5.0 m3 (6.5 yd3) and 5.4 m3 (7.0 yd3), together with three variations of GET, teeth, teeth and segments and a reversible bolt-on cutting edge (BOCE).

Utilizes a network of 28 satellites to communicate vital machine information and location to the dealer's personal computer via the dealer mailbox system. The system is designed to provide four position reports and one SMU report, which are viewed utilizing a software program residing on the PC, per day. In addition, users can obtain additional machine reports by transmitting a signal through the communication system to the individual unit, though this may incur additional monthly charges.
