Caterpillar 950G Wheel Loader
The 950G has a 3126 direct injection turbocharged after-cooled (DITA) engine producing 197 horsepower (HP) (147 kw). It comes standard with an electronic clutch pressure control (ECPC) transmission, tilting hood, ground level access for major service points, two combo rock, nine combo material handling, and nine combo general purpose buckets, as well as increased torque rise and fuel tank capacity.
The 950G was manufactured in the USA, with a 3JW or 4BS serial number prefix; in Japan, with a 5MW or 6NS prefix; in Brazil, with a 8JW prefix; and in Belgium, with a 2JS or 5FW prefix.
The 4BS, 6NS, 2JS, and 5FW units all have low-effort operator controls, command control steering, and electro-hydraulic bucket controls. The 3JW and 5MW have conventional steering and pilot hydraulic controls.
The lone Brazilian-manufactured 8JW unit has a Cat 3126 mechanical unit injection (MUI) engine. It comes standard with an ECPC 11-inch (28-cm) transmission, load sense steering, modified pilot controls, and amplified hand-metering unit (HMU) flow.
Production of 8JW ended in 2004.
The Caterpillar 950G was replaced by the Caterpillar 950G II.
Based on data from the sales database of Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, it is estimated that more than 8,800 Caterpillar 950G wheel loaders have been produced.
