BENEFITS & FEATURES
Engine
The 966G Series II engine is built for power and reliability to deliver excellent productivity and cost effective operation.


Engine

Powerful Performance
The 3176C high performance electronically controlled diesel engine - with six-cylinder, direct injection, turbo-charged, air-to-air after-cooled (ATAAC), and 4-valves per cylinder - delivers net power of 184 kW (246 hp) and enables the 966G II to perform in the most demanding of applications. The 3176C is the ultimate combination of Caterpillar diesel and electronic component technology including ADEM™ III, Caterpillar Monitoring System, and ATAAC resulting in unmatched productivity and efficiency.

Advanced Fuel System
The 966G II features a Caterpillar exclusive Advanced Diesel Engine Module (ADEM III) fuel system controller. ADEM III controls all major engine functions, regulates the timing, duration, and pressure of the fuel injection, providing this information to the Caterpillar Monitoring System.

Caterpillar Monitoring System (CMS)
CMS monitors six major engine system functions and derates the engine should any critical conditions occur. Timely information allows operators to better manage machine operation and take necessary corrective actions, lessening the risk of potential machine damage.

Turbo-Charged And ATAAC
Turbo-charging packs dense air into the cylinders for more complete combustion and lower emissions. Air-to-air after-cooler (ATAAC) reduces smoke and emissions by providing cooler inlet air for more efficient combustion. The result is high output and efficiency while meeting EPA Tier 2 emissions compliance.

Constant Net Horsepower
The 3176C electronic engine continuously gathers information to control the on-demand fan speed and provide constant net horsepower regardless of operating conditions. Compensating for varying fan loads enables the machine to maintain normal system temperatures and reduce fuel consumption.

Less Maintenance
With the 3176C, the engine oil change interval is increased from 250 to 500 hours with the use of CH-4 oil, after an initial 250 hour oil change, to provide reduced costs and downtime.

Electronic Transmission
Advanced Caterpillar power train is reliable and fuel efficient.


Electronic Transmission

Electronic Power Shift Transmission
The planetary power shift transmission with automatic shift capability is designed and built by Caterpillar. The planetary design results in more gear tooth contact for transmitting loads and durability. This robust transmission allows full power, speed, and directional changes.

Electronic Clutch Pressure Control (ECPC)
Input from both the transmission and the operator controls in the cab modulate each individual clutch through a proportional electro-hydraulic valve. Six proportional electro-hydraulic valves pressurizing the clutches are identical and are bolted on top of the transmission. This results in smoother speed and directional shifts. Energy is modulated in the clutches, resulting in longer component life.

Integrated Braking System (IBS)
The Caterpillar exclusive IBS integrates downshifting and neutralizer logic into the left-hand brake pedal. IBS increases performance and productivity with an optimized transmission neutralizer and automatic downshifting. IBS also lowers owning and operating costs by reducing axle oil temperatures to extend brake life.

Free Wheel Stator Torque Converter (FWSTC)
FWSTC reduces drags in the torque converter at high turbine speed/impeller speed ratios. This improves machine power train efficiency and contributes to improved fuel economy in certain applications.

Variable Shift Control (VSC)
VSC transmission software allows the operator to select three different shift patterns based on the application and operating preferences. This feature reduces fuel consumption, in certain applications. In all modes, full machine power remains available for production loading.

Easy Service
Daily oil level check is done from the ground through a well-protected sight gauge. An oil sampling valve allows quick, clean access to the transmission for S•O•SSM oil analysis.

Ecology Drain
A transmission oil ecology drain is standard and allows oil to be easily drained into a container without spillage.

Cooling System
The 966G Series II cooling package provides reduced radiator plugging, fuel efficiency, and easy maintenance.


Reversed Airflow, Unit Core Radiator
The airflow is reversed on the 966GII and enters through the rear grill, exits out the top and side hood panels. Reversed air flow means less debris entering the system. In addition, a new unit core radiator with square wave shaped fins and lower fin density (6 fins per inch) allows debris to pass through more easily.

Electronically Controlled On-Demand Fan
Electronically controlled, temperature sensing variable speed on-demand fan adjusts to meet the varying cooling requirements of the machine throughout the work cycle. Hydraulic oil, engine coolant, and inlet manifold temperatures determine fan speed. In cooler operating conditions, average fan speed is reduced, resulting in less fuel consumption and lower noise levels. Lower air flow also reduces cooler core plugging in high airborne debris applications.

Convenient System Access
The 966GII offers both a swing-out grill and swing-out hydraulic oil cooler and air conditioner condenser for fast and easy cleaning. Left and right side panels also allow access to cores for cleaning.

Airborne Debris Grill (Optional)
An optional attachment, the airborne debris grill replaces the standard rear grill with one that has a vertically corrugated steel screen with 4mm (0.16”) perforations to restrict the entry of airborne debris. The grill is hinged to allow access to cooler cores for cleaning, and also includes brackets to seal around the fuel tank and screen material between the bottom of the grill and the counterweight.

Axles
Heavy-duty axles protect internal components from the environment and offer excellent serviceability.


Heavy-Duty, Four-Piece Axle Design
Caterpillar designed and built with proven durability, the 966G four-piece axle design is maintained for the 966G Series II. Designed to last in all operating conditions, each axle contains two axle shaft housings, the center housing, and the intermediate housing. The front axle is fixed, and the rear axle oscillates +/-13 degrees.

Fully Hydraulic Service Brake
Inboard brakes are positioned next to the differential operating on the low torque side of the final drive. Four friction discs, two each side, are fully enclosed within each axle to lock out contaminants. Multiple oil-disc brakes are adjustment free, and bathed in axle oil for excellent cooling. Independent front and rear brake circuits use separate, heavy-duty piston-type accumulators to ensure dead engine braking.

Integrated Axle Diagnostics
1. Brake wear indicators (2 per axle) provide easy access to measure brake disc wear without disassembling the axle. The original brake reading is recorded in the machine controls at the factory to allow precise wear calculations. 2. Axle oil temperature sensors in both front and rear axles alert the operator on the Caterpillar Monitoring System panel of increased axle oil temperatures to allow the operator to modify the operating technique. This ensures optimum axle operating conditions for maximum component life.

Solutions For Extreme Applications
The left-hand pedal serves as either an additional brake or, when activated, engages Caterpillar’s exclusive Integrated Braking System (IBS). IBS reduces axle oil temperatures to provide maximum axle component life. Although IBS reduces the need for axle oil coolers in many cases, an internal axle oil cooler is available as a factory installed attachment.

Limited Slip Differentials (Optional)
Available for front and/or rear axles, limited slip differentials deliver maximum traction on uneven ground and in changing traction conditions such as mud, water, snow, and ice.

Axle Oil Ecology Drains (Optional)
Axle oil ecology drains provide easier drainage with fewer spills.
