Specialty Equipment Spotlight: Front End Loader

The Front End Loader allows you to move ballast and other materials wherever you need it —quickly and safely.

Key features:

“While the Front End Loader is a standard piece of construction equipment, we have the options you need for effective railroad operations including a fork attachment for material handling. Like all our products, Danella delivers superior maintenance and service so the Front End Loader will be in top quality and safe condition for outstanding performance.” said Steve Bolte, Danella Rental System, Vice-President of Business Development for North America.

Caterpillar states on their website that the CAT® 966M delivers up to 30% more productivity than similar models thanks to a lock-up clutch transmission and increased engine power. This allows it to deliver improved machine performance with enhanced response. The power-dense engine provides power and torque when needed, but conserves fuel whenever possible. As a result, this piece of equipment offers significant fuel savings to lower your long-term costs.

The Front End Loader is designed with operators in mind. It features a comfortable, next-generation adjustable seat, revolutionary suspension system and easy-to-use, intuitive controls. It’s equipped with sound-suppression, seals and camping cab mounts to decrease noise and vibration for a more comfortable work environment. The design of the cab offers the operator outstanding visibility to make it easier to place your payload exactly where you want it.

The buckets are easy-to-load and come in a variety of capacities from 4.19 to 9.68 cu. Yard. The fork attachment is the perfect choice when you’re moving ties and other materials.

As Caterpillar emphasizes this loader model was designed with safety in mind, with easy cab access, stair-like steps, solid stability, floor-to-ceiling windshield, large mirrors with integrated spot mirrors, and rear-vision camera for industry-leading all-around visibility.

With an operating weight of over 50,000 pounds and a heavy-duty transmission, the Front End Loader is more than capable of handling big jobs. It can move a large amount of ballast or other materials on each trip, allowing you to get the job done quickly and safely. Danella services and maintains its vehicles according to specific guidelines for reliable performance and safe operation in tough railroad environments.
