Hello; I helped assemble a 992k last year in indiana. Definitely did not get shipped anything like this. It came in 3 loads. Chassis on a beam trailer, wheels on one lowboy and the cab and bucket and misc parts on a third flat deck. It was quite the job to put all the pieces together.
Why does CAT have so many models that are the same size The 986, 988, 990, 992, 993, and 994 are all really close in size, with the difference only being noticeable from 986 to 994. Don't they have too many models that can be used for the same thing when you look at pictures of these machines it is hard to tell a difference in size between one loader and the next size up. But a 988 next to a 994 is like a chihuahua next to a German Shepard in person.
