Setting The New Standards In Heavy Equipment – Al-Bahar Introduces The Cat® GC Range
Al-Bahar today announced the launch of the latest Cat® GC range across its territory. The two models being offered currently as part of the range introduction include 950 GC and 330 GC. Attributed as the ‘Game Changers’, these machines offer the opportunity to move more material in less time, at a lower cost per ton, for a faster return on equipment investment. Al-Bahar states that 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. 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.
Bringing along the new standard, the GC machines are ideal 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 optimize businesses. In other words, these machines are easy to own, operate, and service.
“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 minimize their owning and operating costs,” quoted Mr. Samer Ismail, Product Manager – Earthmoving & Excavation, Al-Bahar, commenting on the need of the GC range in the region.
“There existed the need of a product range at a different price point, offering the same Cat Brand Promise and quality,” added Samer. “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.”
Cat® 950 GC Wheel Loader
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.
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.

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, Samer added, “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 Cab, all-around visibility, Touchscreen Monitor, Keyless Push Start, fewer connections, less hose and ground-level daily maintenance.
Samer concluded quoting, “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. We will add more GC models to our product offering, based on the availability and customer requirement.
