There are 3 main types of manuals, each with a specific purpose. Some manuals combine types (i.e. Parts + Operators, etc.), but the basic function of the manual types remain the same and are as follows:

Traxcavator was a namebrand of the Trackson Company of Milwaukee , Wisconsin . The word "Traxcavator" came from combining "tractor" and "excavator".

Trackson commenced business in Milwaukee in 1922 and built tracked attachments for primarily Fordson tractors , initially - then built tracked attachments for other tractor manufacturers. The early Trackson tracked attachments were popular on tractors used for road grader power units, as well as for tractors used in poor ground conditions.

The Trackson company was owned by Armand Lamfrom Froehlich (1895-1951), and the chief engineer was Walter Stiemke. Sometime in the early 1930s, Walter Stiemke recognized the potential of combining the Trackson track system with the Lessman Manufacturing Company lifting mechanism, for digging or excavating.

Caterpillar first referred to its “Wheel Loader” product family as “Traxcavators.” In December 1959, the first machine in this new product family - the 944 Traxcavator (later, it was referred to as the 944 Wheel Loader) - came off the assembly line at the Caterpillar manufacturing plant in Aurora, Ill.

The 944 Traxcavator was much different than earlier Traxcavator models as it had wheels instead of tracks. It was also equipped with twin lift arms instead of a vertical mast. The 944 was well accepted in the industry because of its rigid frames and rear wheel steering. It was powered by a four-cylinder Cat ® D330 Diesel Engine. The standard bucket size was two cubic yards, which made the machine more competitive with a host of similar sized machines from other construction equipment manufacturers.
