Introduced in 1982 as a replacement to the Cat 977L, the 973 features a 3306 Turbocharged Diesel engine mounted in the rear to improve operator sight while also providing a natural balance for the machine with a loaded bucket, reducing the need for a counterweight.  Coupled with a hydrostatic drive, the 973 is quick and responsive, with precise control including variable speeds within set speed ranges.  The standard Z-Bar linkage provides the machine with a high breakout force and fast dumping cycles.

Designed for less than ideal conditions that are found in demolition and steel foundry applications, these machines are equipped with a full guard package including a windshield screen, tilt cylinder guards, front guard, idler guards, bottom guard, fender guards, and rear bumper guard.
