Introducing the Cat 995 Wheel Loader: Higher Payload, Enhanced Efficiency, and Advanced Features for Increased Productivity

June 17, 2023

The Cat 995 Caterpillar wheel loader is an upgraded version of the Cat 994K, offering a higher payload capacity and increased hydraulic force. It has an operating weight of 540,555 pounds. The rated payload of the Cat 995 ranges from 50 to 60 tons, depending on the application, and its bucket capacity varies from 22.3 to 57 cubic yards. The increased payload allows for one less loading pass when paired with Cat 785, 789, or 792 haul trucks, resulting in up to a 33 percent increase in production and efficiency when loading the 785, up to a 25 percent increase with the 789, and up to a 20 percent increase with the 793.

The buckets of the Cat 995 have an extended floor for quick loading and high fill factors, reaching up to 115 percent. They can be interchanged between the 995 and its predecessor, the 994K.

Powered by a Cat 3516E diesel engine, the loaders deliver 1,870 gross horsepower. With a torque rise of 39 percent, they offer high lugging forces during digging and acceleration in high rimpull conditions.

The Cat 995 wheel loader boasts up to 13 percent lower hourly fuel consumption and offers an additional 8 percent efficiency gain when operating in Enhanced Eco Mode compared to throttle lock mode.

Enhancements to the front linkage of the loader include improved casting design, larger weld size, bigger bearings and pins, and profile changes for increased service life.Cat 995 cab.

The redesigned next-generation cab of the Cat 995 provides 50 percent more legroom. It is pressurized to reduce vibration feedback and lower sound levels, and it features automatic temperature control. The cab also includes a new electrohydraulic speed-sensing steering system with force feedback, which automatically adjusts stiffness based on travel speed to enhance operator confidence.

The cab's taller windshield offers a 25 percent increase in glass surface area and a 64 percent increase in wiper sweep area, providing better visibility of the bucket. The loader is equipped with two 10-inch color LED monitors that display machine control, operating functions, and the electronic operator's manual. Additionally, there is an 8-inch screen dedicated to the standard rearview camera, which can be upgraded to a multiview camera system offering 270-degree vision with rear object detection.

Integrated with electronics, the Cat 995 wheel loader offers various levels of information and technologies to optimize productivity and support informed operators. It includes standard tip-up prevention technology to avoid unnecessary stress on the drivetrain and structural components while delivering full breakout forces. This technology prevents the back tires from significantly lifting off the ground.

Optional Autodig components automate challenging parts of the digging cycle, improving productivity and reducing tire wear. These components include Tire Slip Prevention, which reduces rimpull before the tires are set and increases rimpull when downward force is applied; Auto Set Tires, which detects pile contact and automatically lifts against the pile to set the tires and increase traction; and Lift Stall Prevention, which manages rimpull in-dig to prevent hydraulic stall when lifting through the face, reducing the time spent in the pile.

The loader also offers optional Operator Coaching, which measures and reports on individual operator behaviors that impact efficiency, production, and component life. It provides instructional videos to train operators on measured behaviors, demonstrating both incorrect and recommended techniques. Among the 21 monitored operating technique aspects, the system guides operators on reducing tire rotation, avoiding unracking in-dig, entering the pile with a level bucket, minimizing usage of the impeller clutch, reducing dump height, and utilizing the kickout feature properly.

Another optional feature is Payload Overload Prevention, which improves productivity and efficiency by allowing the use of a larger bucket to achieve pass-match targets across various material densities without the risk of overload. This feature can be configured to either stop or slow down the lift arms when the maximum allowed payload, including bucket weight, is exceeded.

The Cat 995 comes with a standard Vital Information Management System (VIMS) that allows customers to connect directly to the machine and access a wide range of sensor information and enhanced machine data. It is compatible with various Cat MineStar solutions, including Health, Guide, and Terrain.

To enhance reliability, the number of steering hoses has been reduced from 15 to 10, and tubes have been minimized from 11 to 1 in the steering system. The loader also features an enhanced service station with improved access to functions like coolant and oil, level indicators, a Cat battery charging connector, and indicator lights for fuel tanks.

The redesigned pump bay of the loader improves access to transmission components, offers side discharge ports on the pumps, and simplifies the routing of lines directly to the high-pressure screens. The pump bay includes filters for the brake pump and implement pilot, as well as implement discharge screens. Diagnostic ports are easily accessible from the front walk deck and pump bay. Groundline service now includes a steering pilot filter, transmission filters, and a steering pump discharge screen.
