Al Bahar unveils new range of Caterpillar machines

SHARJAH, November 18, 2019

Mohamed Abdulrahman Al Bahar, the authorised Caterpillar equipment and engine dealer in the Gulf region, has announced the launch of its new Cat GC range of machines built for customers who value reliability at a low cost per hour.

The Sharjah-based group unveiled two new models - 950 GC and 330 GC - as part of the new Cat GC range of machines.

Dubbed as ‘game changers’, these machines offer the opportunity to move more material in less time, at a lower cost per tonne, for a faster return on equipment investment, said a statement from
Al Bahar.

The Caterpillar dealer pointed out that the regional customer demands and requirements, dictated the introduction of the new GC range.

The GC models are a result of the continuous expansion of the range by Caterpillar, after the success of its 950 GC wheel loader launched previously. This particular range of equipment is known for offering convenient acquisition and operating costs, it stated.

They are simply economical with an attractive total cost of ownership. Built as per the Cat production system standards, they are best-in-class machines and come with the standard Cat brand promise of durability and reliability, said Al Bahar in the statement.

Bringing along the new standard, the GC machines are designed for those looking for machines that are simple, durable, fuel competitive and easy to use.

Moreover, with the extensive support of Al Bahar dealer network and services with Cat Genuine Parts, the GC models promise new opportunities to optimise businesses. In other words, these machines are easy to own, operate, and service, it added.

On the new launch, Samer Ismail, the product manager (Earthmoving & Excavation) said: "Customer value comes first at Al Bahar. Having considered our customer requirements, we found that some of our existing customers wanted simple fuel-efficient machines, which would minimise their owning and operating costs."

"There existed the need of a product range at a different price point, offering the same Cat brand promise and quality,” explained Ismail.

“With an objective of meeting our customers’ expectations, we have introduced the GC range, including machines that offered high performance and are supported by Al Bahar. Our customers are aware; there will be no compromise on the quality, and after-sales support,” he added.

Cat 950 GC

The 950 GC is a complete new design leveraging proven Cat components and technology to meet customer needs. Reliable performance, low fuel consumption and ease of operation are the main attributes of the machine. It is purpose-built to be the right machine to get everyday jobs done.
Designed for quarries, sand-and gravel pits, coal operation and construction job-sites, the 950 GC is also an exceptional choice for governmental bids, offering agencies a well-designed, durable machine that fits the budget, the company stated.

Designed to deliver maximum efficiency, Cat 950 GC assures maximum productivity for everyday operations. It comes with performance series buckets; Z-bar linkage for better bucket loading; and load sensing hydraulics for better balance.

Powered by the renowned Cat C7.1 engine it has an Engine Idle Management System, which minimises fuel consumption. Load-sensing hydraulics produce flow and pressure for the implement system upon demand and only in amounts necessary to perform the needed work functions.

Commenting about the 950 GC, Ismail said: "The 950 GC is the machine of choice for a customer who doesn’t need all the technology and options that goes with the 950L, instead is looking for a easy to use machine with lower acquisition costs. It is a very heavy-duty machine and it works well for applications in our region."

Cat 330 GC

The 330 GC is a smart choice for operations where high reliability and low-cost-per-hour performance are priorities. It offers the ideal balance of dependable performance, operator productivity features, and reduced costs. Setting the standards, 330 GC lowers maintenance costs with extended and more synchronized maintenance intervals.

The precise combination of larger hydraulic pumps, an electronic main control valve, and electronically controlled cooling fans in 330 GC allows it to deliver top performance while burning less fuel.

Additionally, it is equipped with two modes to help manage fuel consumption for your specific applications. The new Smart Mode automatically matches engine speed and hydraulic power to demand for the highest fuel efficiency in any application.

Other highlights of 330 GC include ISO-certified ROPS (roll over protection system) cab, all-around visibility, touchscreen monitor, keyless push start, fewer connections, less hose and ground-level daily maintenance.

“These machines are winners, particularly among customers who are looking for high performance machines that are simple, durable, fuel efficient, easy to use and come packaged with the same Cat reliability," remarked Ismail.

"We will add more GC models to our product offering, based on the availability and customer requirement," he added.
