The powerful and versatile 983B Track-Type Loader was introduced in 1978, and produced until 1982. At the time it was the largest track loader made by Cat, and produced 275 flywheel horsepower from its six-cylinder, 893 cubic-inch, 3406 diesel engine. The 983B featured pedal steering, freeing the operator’s hands for the transmission and loader controls. An automatic bucket control system allowed the bucket to rise to a pre-set dumping height and return to a pre-set digging angle for fast cycle times.
