Cat® C9 engine with ACERT™
Comes with more horsepower and ofers better fuel efficiency and reduced wear. It works at the point of combustion to optimize engine performance and provides low exhaust emissions.
ADEM™ A4 manages fuel delivery to get the best performance per liter of fuel. The On demand Fan offers benefits like better cooling performance, reduced plugging, enhanced cold weather operation and improved fuel economy.
Load sensing system works on-demand and adjusts flow pressure to match for precise and efficient control. The electronically controlled Hydrostatic drive provides fast response for shorter cycle times resulting in increased productivity. The Hystat drive also offers efficient control of each track, with fast acceleration and variable speeds, enabling the operator to command smooth machine turns and counter-rotation. The load sensing hydraulic system of 973D automatically adjusts to operating conditions to provide only the hydraulic flow required for improved fuel efficiency. The system also delivers precise control with low effort operation and allows simultaneous lift, tilt and travel.
Position Sensing Cylinders (PSCs) improve productivity by enhancing operator control. Operator can set lift and tilt kickouts at any position according to the applications without leaving the cab. Electronics within the cylinder allow the hydraulic system to be linked into the machine’s electronics. This link enables the system to track the cylinder stroke, reducing operator effort, and increasing productivity. PSCs allows the machine to use advanced automatic features for smooth start and stop cylinder motion, reducing vibration in the cab.
The standard programmable automatic kickouts provide flexibility and productivity for precise load and dump target heights. Tilt and lift kickouts are set by positioning the bucket or work tool and setting a rocker switch in the cab.
The D-Series cab is made with your operator comfort in mind. Large, spacious cab and low-effort and ergonomic controls provide the operator a convenient and comfortable working area. The 973D is equipped with a tiltable cab. The new electro hydraulic implement controls and Hydrostatic Drive System controls ensure better productivity.
The 973D comes standard with Cat Messenger, providing real-time machine performance and diagnostic data.
The undercarriage on the 973D has an oscillating track roller frame design which decreases ground shock to the machine, increases machine stability, and provides a smoother, more comfortable ride for the operator. The Track link design comes with heat-treated steel forgings with different degrees of hardness, increasing links’ life and lowers owning and operating costs. The standard double grouser shoes are designed for good traction, easy turns and bending.
973D is available with several shoes options to best match your job requirements. For best option, contact TIPL.
