Best Wheel Loaders for Your Farm

Category: Equipment and Solutions

Farmers and professionals in agriculture are always moving supplies from point A to point B. Completing operations manually can take weeks with just a shovel, so a wheel loader is necessary for maximizing profits. If you are in the market for new equipment, selecting the right wheel loader for your efforts is the ticket to streamlining responsibilities.

The experts at NMC Cat understand that farmers need equipment engineered for optimum performance, so we are proud to recommend genuine Cat® machines for diverse applications. Use the information below to select world-class technology you can rely on for years to come.

Types of Wheel Loaders for Agriculture

Wheel loaders are categorized by size and performance specifications. Before settling on the right farm wheel loader for your needs, review the following:

  • Compact wheel loaders: These wheel loaders are suitable for smaller jobs. Navigate through narrow terrains without disrupting crops and working surfaces.
  • Small wheel loaders: A small wheel loader allows users to maneuver rough terrains while providing flexibility for attachments. Similar to compact wheel loaders, these machines are suitable for tight job sites. Small loader variants provide additional horsepower.
  • Medium wheel loaders: Medium builds reduce the need for manual labor. Relocate piles of soil and more with hydraulic functions that enable you to monitor operational costs.
  • Large wheel loaders: These machines are for extreme loads. Prepare land quickly with shovel-inspired attachments, and use your investment to navigate the farm at higher speeds.

Take a look at the suggestions below to learn more about some of the best farm wheel loaders in each class:

1. Cat® 903D Compact Wheel Loader

The Cat 903D Compact Wheel Loader packs an impressive amount of power into a small-scale machine. Thanks to a Cat C2.4 engine, equipment operators can use over 40 horsepower to scoop supplies, animal waste and more near high-traffic areas. The 903D Compact Wheel Loader provides you with a 25 percent increase in tipping capacity and ground speed capabilities compared to previous generations.

Select models enable equipment operators to change out tooling attachments without having to climb out of the enclosure. This is one of the best farm wheel loaders in the compact class, as you gain access to user-friendly joystick controls, a spacious cabin and differential locking functions for traction support.

2. Cat 926M Small Wheel Loader

Cat 926M Small Wheel Loaders feature a Cat C7.1 engine for plenty of power at a quieter volume. Stay comfortable inside the cabin for projects that take more than just a few minutes to complete. Select Cat 926M Wheel Loader packages include rearview cameras and heated seats that are useful when working through evening hours.

Cat 926M Small Wheel Loader machines showcase two operating modes (standard mode and performance mode) for versatility. Standard power modes focus on minimizing cabin vibrations and saving fuel while performance modes push engine power by as much as 10 percent with the press of a button.

Clear snow, relocate animal feed and more with a single piece of equipment.

3. Cat 950 GC Medium Wheel Loader

The Cat 950 GC Wheel Loader is a well-rounded machine that allows you to tackle everyday jobs on the farm with proficiency. The loader design features a Cat C7.1 engine offering 225 horsepower for rugged applications. Pair your investment with a Cat Performance Series Bucket attachment for material handling work that would take weeks to finish with traditional tools.

Cat 950 GC Wheel Loaders provide significant fuel savings thanks to an included Engine Idle Management System (EIMS). Get the most out of your fuel, as the farm wheel loader automatically reduces engine revolutions per minute after idling for a specific period of time.

This Cat agriculture wheel loader is equipped with a glass windshield that extends to the cab floor for maximum visibility near the bucket.

4. Cat 988K Large Wheel Loader

Large farm wheel loaders are necessary for land clearing tasks. If you have to move rocks, hay bales or mounds of soil, the Cat 988K Wheel Loader is appropriate for your most demanding applications. A Cat C18 engine with over 500 horsepower and steel lift arms make it easy to dump supplies and aggregates with control.

Equipment operators can drive over grass and dirt quickly using a world-class Steering and Transmission Integrated Control System (STIC™). Set the direction in which you want to travel as well as transmission gears from the same lever inside the enclosure.
