Cat 973D Track Loader
St. Peoria, Ill.
Cat’s 973D track loader features load-sensing hydraulics, joystick steering, a new operator’s station (with tilting cab) and 10 percent more power than its 973C predecessor. The loader carries on the 973C’s “all-purpose performer” reputation and retains much of its solid design, including the Cat C9 engine, hydrostatic drive, single-fabrication mainframe, Z-bar loader linkage and oscillating undercarriage. The 973D has the features to take on the toughest jobs, at construction sites or in the harsh environments of steel mills, landfills, quarries and demolition sites.
