PERFORMANCE HANDBOOK 48
HOW DO YOU CALCULATE MACHINE PERFORMANCE?
There are multiple factors to consider when estimating machine performance, including weight to horsepower ratios, equipment capacity, type of transmission, speed and operating costs – all of which are explored in detail in the Caterpillar Performance Handbook 48.
- Current Models
- Estimating Owning & Operating Costs
- Former Models
- Land Clearing
- Mining & Earthmoving

Additional factors that have not been included but should still be considered when comparing machine performance include serviceability, parts availability and operator training.
