200t WesTrac big Cat gets an EVO so careful, precise, and safe Enerpac lift


Lifting heavy machinery such as haul trucks and wheel loaders can be a challenging task without the right system in place.

WesTrac – a leading Cat equipment provider to the construction, mining, and agricultural industries – required an efficient, portable, and safe solution to lift its Cat® 994K Wheel Loader. The system needed to be operated independently without manual intervention and provide a locking function during the lift.


The massive 200 tonne Cat wheel loader had to be lifted to a height of 400-450mm with an accuracy of +/- 2mm across four lift points. The process had to be carried out on uneven ground, which caused the lifting points to be at different heights. The lifting equipment needed to work independently to the pump and required forklift pockets so it could be maneuvered into place easily.
