More horsepower, higher torque rise, greater rimpull, larger and stronger hydraulics and a new bucket design make the 928G a solid performer. The best place you can evaluate this exceptional performance, of course, isfrom the operator's seat.

Offering world class performance, value and reliability.

Performance You Can Feel
More horsepower, higher torque rise, greater rimpull, larger and stronger hydraulics and a new bucket design make the 928G a solid performer.

Value You Can See
A larger, intelligent-design operator station offers exceptional forward and peripheral visibility. Lower interior and exterior sound levels and larger fuel capacity make the 928G easier to operate.

Reliability You Can Trust
Proven Cat power train and hydraulic components, exhaustive field testing and the world's best support system assure the 928G will provide maximum uptime.

Cat Power Train
The 928G uses an all Caterpillar power train to most effectively get maximum power to the ground. A Caterpillar 3116T standard low-emission engine and Cat power shift transmission is performance-matched to the Cat torque converter and axles.

Cat Power Train

Low Emission 3116T Diesel Engine
The six-cylinder, turbocharged 3116T is one of the most developed and proven engines offered by Caterpillar. It has a strong reputation for reliability, durability and performance.

Power Shift Transmission
Rugged, field-proven Caterpillar 4F/3R transmission uses heavy-duty components for durable and reliable operation. Full power shift capability and electronically-controlled Autoshift simplify operation. Plus, it's designed for easy service and rebuild.

Caterpillar Axles and Brakes
Enclosed design allows extended operation, even in harsh environments.Heavy-duty design features stronger gears and bearings for durable performance.

Operator Station
Ergonomically designed for total control in a comfortable, spacious environment.

Operator Station

Through the new two-door design. The left-hand door is for primary access/egress and the right-hand door provides secondary access/egress.

Larger Windows
Improved visibility in all directions. Thirty-two percent more glass area opens the operator's view for remarkable forward and peripheral visibility.

Low Sound Levels
The result of several new designs. Interior sound measurements has been cut in half by use of a combination of improved sound insulation and the use of low-noise components.

Seat Options
Includes the basic seat with fully adjustable fore/aft position, seatback angle, bottom cushion height, armrest angle and suspension stiffness.

Generous Storage Space
Includes a lockable compartment for personal items, coat hook and special molded compartments designed to securely hold several items.

Customize The Cab
Customize the cab with a variety of available accessories.

Low-effort Operation.
Pilot hydraulic controls give the 928G uncompromised ease of lift and tilt functions.

Load-sensing, closed-center steering system
Load sensing, closed-center steering system with flow amplification matches steering response to a wide variety of application requirements.

There are several standard gauges and indicators available on the steering console, gages for visually checking fluid level, and indicator warning lights.

Caterpillar Buckets
Caterpillar's selection of general purpose and penetration buckets are an integral part of a machine designed to optimize performance.

Caterpillar Buckets

General Purpose Buckets
Caterpillar general purpose buckets areavailable in 2.0 m3 (2.5 yd3.) and 2.2 m3 (2.9 yd3.) capacities and are suitable for most general applications.

Ground Engaging Tools
The Caterpillar ground engaging tools include hardened steel cutting edges, choice of short or long teeth and a variety of tooth adapters.

The Caterpillar Penetration Bucket
The Caterpillar Penetration Bucket has a 2.1 m3 (2.75 yd3) capacity. It provides best results in materials that require moderate impact and breakout forces.

Bucket Controls
The bucket controls have pilot-operated lift and tilt circuits. There is a choice of low effort single-lever or two-lever control of lift and tilt circuits.

Frame Structure
The frame structures of the 928G has been redesigned to provide greater structural integrity, improved function and better overall machine performance.

Easily perform daily maintenance with ground-level access to all major service points.


Improved Service Access
New gull-wing engine enclosure doors make it quicker and easier to gain access to the engine compartment and hydraulic tank.

Ground-Level Service
Service points have been grouped to two main locations on the G-Series machines and are all accessible from ground level.

Swing-out Cooling Fan
The new swing-out cooling fan system simplifies and improves access to the G-Series machines' radiator. This new design allows access to the radiator for inspection and cleaning in a matter of seconds.

Scheduled Oil Sampling (S.O.S) Valves
Scheduled Oil Sampling (S.O.S) Valvesare factory installed for improved access to engine, transmission and hydraulic oils. S.O.S valves make oil sampling quicker, cleaner and provides the most representative oil sample for analysis.

Environmentally Responsible Design
Caterpillar machines not only help you build a better world, they help maintain and preserve the fragile environment.

Environmentally Responsible Design

Complete Customer Support
Your Cat Dealer offers a wide range of services that help you operate longer with lower costs.

Linkage and Hydraulics
The 928G offers longer, wider lift arms for better reach, dump height and improved visibility to the bucket. The 928G uses an open-center, pilot-operated system with full-flow filtering.

Electrical System
The main power components are mounted on the firewall inside the engine compartment, including the start relay, main breaker, alternator breaker and an auxiliary breaker.
