Cat® 950H Loader –'Moving More and Making More'

Enhanced productivity and reduced operational and ownership costs make the new Cat® 950H wheel loader a valuable partner in SEW Infrastructure's Trichy-Dindigul road project.

Established in 1959 and having more than 50 years of rich experience in construction, SEW has not only constructed some of the biggest dams and irrigation projects in India, but also works across 12 other verticals such as tunnelling, hydro power, thermal power, port development, highways, oil and gas etc.

"We have done a road project from Trichy to Dindigul, a stretch of approximately 90 km with four lanes, for our client — Reliance Infrastructure," says Sanjay Kumar Tripathi, Associate Vice-President – O&M, P&M, SEW Infrastructure Ltd. With more than 22 years of experience in the maintenance and management of earthmoving machinery, construction plant and machineries, Tripathi looks after the operation and maintenance management of plant and machinery.

The Trichy-Dindigul road project required the deployment of two loaders, which would help in the smooth execution of the project. "We fulfil our requirement of plant and machinery on the basis of two arrangements — primarily by owning equipment ourselves and secondly, by renting equipment. We have bought a Cat® 950H loader from Gmmco and also hired a loader for this project. I would like to mention that the Cat Loader has given us very good productivity and reliability, due to which we have completed this project within the given time-frame," says Tripathi.

While maintaining world-class operator comfort and durability, features such as improved ease of control with electro-hydraulic implement controls that have simultaneous lift and tilt capabilities, help in quicker loading cycles and easy manoeuvrability. Add in a 5-degree forward inclined ladder with self-cleaning steps for ease of entry and exit, along with centrally located hydraulic and electrical service centres for improved daily maintenance, providing operators unmatched comfort and more uptime. The Cat® 950H wheel loaders translate into 'Moving More and Making More' for our customers.

Electro-hydraulic implement controls and load-sensing hydraulic system with simultaneous lift and tilt capabilities offer better control with less effort. Repeatable fine modulation gives superior bucket control with less spillage. New and proven systems such as engine idle and shutdown idle management systems work together for better fuel efficiency without sacrificing power and performance.

Homing onto the Cat® 950H loader as a perfect solution for their needs, Tripathi says, "We considered this loader mainly due to its superior engine having ACERT Technology."

ACERT Technology is an innovative performance enhancement and emissions reduction solution for diesel engines. Through a process called multiple injection, a number of precisely-metered microbursts of fuel are delivered into the combustion chamber.

"Secondly, the reliability factor of this machine is greater as compared to other machines. The mean time between failures is supposed to be very high. In other words, the machine should be robust and reliable, continuously working and producing results even when the application is severe."

"Considering the complexity and toughness of our application, we went ahead and procured the Cat® 950H Loader, which has proven to be the right decision. The machine has given 5,600 uninterrupted hours so far, and we are expecting many more hours of smooth performance without any down time."

K Srinivasu, Project Manager, SEW Infrastructure Ltd., who is executing the Trichy-Dindigul Project, says, "We have been using the Cat® 950H Loader for the last one and a half years. It provides maximum comfort to our operators and contributes to prolonged accident-free productivity. The work output has been excellent and has helped us to meet our deadlines. We have run this machine for about 6000 hours and have found it to be extremely reliable."

The Cat® 950H loader is designed to provide maximum operator comfort. The ergonomically designed cab offers a best-in-class work environment. "Operating comfort of the 950H is good. Driving is very comfortable. The seat is very wide and comfortable, operating speed and brakes are good. It gives good mileage. It is very easy to maintain and requires nominal repairs. I have not come across any major repair issues in the last 2 years. Earlier, I have operated various loaders, but this one is the best," sums up Giri, the operator working on the Trichy-Dindigul Highway Project.

Caterpillar's emphasis on providing good after-sales support in the form of training, technical support and repairs has helped in maintaining maximum up-time of the deployed Cat® 950H loaders.

Ease of service for daily checks, extended service intervals and a focus on reducing owning and operating costs translate into minimal idling of equipment, thereby helping in the timely execution of projects. Cat reliability, simplified serviceability, superior dealer support and availability of spare parts keeps the 950H loader running, with less downtime and lower operating costs.

"While deciding on the purchase of this product, we were well aware of the country-wide dealership support and after-sales service provided by Gmmco and TIPL. So we did not have any doubt in our minds and were confident that we have, indeed, made the right decision. Gmmco has supported us very well on our Trichy-Dindigul project. All the necessary spare parts, filters, consumables as well as training and technical guidance was provided by the Gmmco local dealer, who has always given prompt and timely support, as and when required by us. We are happy and satisfied with the product as well as the excellent support," says Tripathi.

Tripathi has every reason to be pleased because the Cat toughness and durability are built into every H-Series wheel loader. They move more material, at less cost than any other machine. Moreover, genuine Cat quality means excellent resale value. When the time comes to part with your H-Series wheel loader, your machine will command an exceptional price.
