BENEFITS & FEATURES
Operator Station
Superior comfort keeps you productive, all day long.


Operator Station

Cab Comfort
Spacious, comfortable cab helps you stay productive throughout the work day. Low effort joystick and steering, intuitively laid out controls, two armrests and an adjustable wrist rest are some of the many features built into the H2 Series Compact Wheel Loader for maximum operator comfort. A variety of options makes it easy to customize the cab to your requirements. Select the operator station that meets your needs - Canopy, Comfort Cab or Deluxe Cab. Optional air conditioning system is standard in the Deluxe Cab for additional operator comfort. All cabs are fully pre-wired, making it easy to install future options.

Low Effort Controls
Pilot hydraulics keep operator fatigue low. The single multi functional joystick contains FNR (Forward/Neutral/Reverse), travel speed, third function auxiliary hydraulics (for hydromechanical work tools), differential lock and continuous flow controls.

Excellent Visibility
Work site visibility has been maximized with two fully glazed doors, front low-level glazing, excellent rear visibility and a clear view to the work tool through the loader arms.

Low Cab Height
The 906H2 features a low cab height of 2465 mm (8 ft 1 in) to provide access to more areas on the job site.

Power Train
Cat Hystat™ power train delivers aggressive performance.


Power Train

Cat 3.3B DIT U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim Compliant Engine
Engine service area features eco-friendly drains, easily accessible filters, ground level service points, and separate coolers for cleaning. The electric fuel pump self-primes dry, fresh filters to make servicing fast and contamination free.

Chassis and Heavy Duty Axles
With 18 degrees of motion, the oscillating chassis assures four wheel ground contact. Heavy duty axles with outboard planetary reduction gears are more durable. Standard differential locks in both axles can be engaged on the move.

Two Speed Options
The hydrostatic drive line offers two speeds in “Low” range: 1st Gear - 7 km/h (4.3 mph) and 2nd Gear - 20 km/h (12.4 mph). The optional speeder transmission provides up to 35 km/h (21.7 mph) in “High” range. Both versions feature smooth inching with the brake pedal as standard. Additionally, an optional transmission control upgrade offers creeper control, rimpull control and hand throttle. The combination of creeper and hand throttle is used for powering hydromechanical work tools such as snowblowers or cold planers. The rimpull control reduces the amount of tire slippage in soft or loose underfoot conditions, adjusted between 60% and 100% tractive force.

Ride Control
The optional Ride Control improves operator comfort, material retention, machine controllability, and higher productivity. Three modes are available - auto, on and off. This feature is highly recommended if the machine is equipped with the 35 km/h (21.7 mph) speeder option.

Loader Linkage
Optimal digging forces with parallel lift.


Loader Linkage

Parallel Lift Z-bar Design
The high performance Z-bar loader design is built for strength and excellent work tool visibility. The standard skid steer loader style quick coupler ensures maximum versatility. The Z-bar linkage gives the operator a clear view to the work tool and excellent dump clearance while maintaining good cycle times and parallel lift.

Work Tools
Do more jobs with one machine with Cat Work Tools.


Work Tools

The Right Tool for the Job
Increase the versatility of the machine with the wide range of Cat buckets, forks and hydraulically powered work tools. Work tools can be changed quickly and easily with the machine’s quick coupler system. Available work tools include:
  • Buckets
  • Material Handling Arm
  • Forks
  • Power Box Rakes
  • Augers
  • Snow Removers
  • Brooms
  • Stump Grinders
  • Cold Planers
  • Trenchers
  • Landscape Rakes
  • Vibratory Compactors
  • Landscape Tillers
For a complete list of available work tools, please consult your Cat dealer.

Additional Options to Increase Productivity
Caterpillar offers the following options to further increase your productivity:
  • Return to dig work tool positioner automatically returns the bucket to level position after dumping.
  • Work tool wiring harness for fourth hydraulic function such as broom angling.
  • Transmission control upgrade includes speed control, rimpull control and hand throttle control. Speed control (creeper) provides variable control of ground speed while maintaining optimal hydromechanical work tool speed, such as using snow blowers, cold planers or wheel saws. Rimpull control optimizes bucket loading and reduces wheel spin under soft or loose underfoot conditions. Hand throttle control provides infinitely variable means of fixing engine speed, ideal for steady operation of hydromechanical work tools.
  • High flow auxiliary hydraulics at 125 L/min (33 gal/min) for high flow work tools.

Skid Steer Loader Style Coupler
The universal skid steer loader style coupler allows the use of many Cat Skid Steer, Multi Terrain and Compact Track Loader hydromechanical work tools. Auxiliary lines and connectors are standard equipment. Using either the standard flow or optional high flow hydraulics, this coupler system allows the H2 Series Compact Wheel Loaders to easily integrate into a Cat Skid Steer, Multi Terrain or Compact Track Loader fleet.

Serviceability & Customer Support
Easy access and minimal maintenance requirements reduce downtime. Unmatched support makes the difference.


Serviceability & Customer Support

Convenient Service Features
High opening, easy to lift engine hood and side service doors provide easy access to all major components and service points from ground level.
  • Valves and pressure taps are conveniently located in the engine bay for S·O·SSM analysis of engine and hydraulic system cleanliness and service requirements, prolonging machine life.
  • Two stage air cleaner with a built-in centrifugal precleaner, secondary element and a visual restriction indicator improves service life.
