Caterpillar first introduced the 992 in 1968. This large wheel loader has been a global leader ever since, building a reputation as a face loader that’s both safe to operate, productive and durable. With the introduction of the K Series, we’ve enhanced the operator’s experience and the safety of those working on and around the machine. With both standard and high lift configurations, this machine will pass match with fleets of 775, 777, and 785 trucks. If your operations revolve around the 992 as a loading tool, you’ll find everything that’s important to your business in the 992K; safety, productivity, cost control and comfort for your people.

Sound Performance

Operator Sound Pressure Level
The operator sound pressure level is 70 dB(A), measured according to the test procedures and conditions specified in ISO 6396:2008 for the standard machine configuration. The measurement was conducted at 70 percent of the maximum engine cooling fan speed.
Hearing Protection
Hearing protection may be needed when the machine is operated with a cab that is not properly maintained or when the doors or windows are open for extended periods or in a noisy environment.
Machine Sound Power Level – Standard Machine Configuration
The machine sound power level is 116 dB(A), measured according to the test procedures and conditions specified in ISO 6395:2008 for the standard machine configuration. The measurement was conducted at 70 percent of the maximum engine cooling fan speed.
Machine Sound Power Level – Sound Suppressed Machine Configuration
The machine sound power level is 113 dB(A), measured according to the test procedures and conditions specified in ISO 6395:2008 for the sound suppressed machine configuration. The measurement was conducted at 70 percent of the maximum engine cooling fan s
