The 980 XE, which like all Caterpillar machines is being shown by the company’s Germany-based dealer Zeppelin, meets emission standards without interrupting operation.

It features a continuously variable transmission delivering increased fuel efficiencies up to 35% compared to the M series model. It also has expanded technology platform to increase machine performance.

Meanwhile, for the operator, comfort is paramount. The seat-mounted electro-hydraulic joystick steering system provides precision control and dramatically reduces arm fatigue, resulting in excellent comfort and accuracy. The next generation of ride control works as a shock absorber, improving ride quality over rough terrain.

Outside the cab, inclined steps and convenient grab handles ease accessibility. Extended windows enhance visibility, while convex and spot mirrors extend the driver’s view on the sides and rear.
