The new Cat 621H, 623H and 627H wheel tractor-scrapers feature a more powerful engine in the tractor, and a more powerful engine in the scraper of the 627H.
The new Cat 621H, 623H and 627H wheel tractor-scrapers feature a more powerful engine in the tractor, and a more powerful engine in the scraper of the 627H. The Cat C13 engine in the tractor produces 407 horsepower (18 percent more compared with G- Series models), and the C9.3 in the 627H scraper produces 290 horsepower (up 19 percent). In addition, a new torque converter is designed to deliver more power to the ground. Capacities are increased 2 cubic yards—to 24 cubic yards—for the single-engine/open-bowl 621H and twin-engine/open-bowl 627H. The elevating 623H is rated at 23 cubic yards and features a redesigned elevator that delivers more power and is easier to adjust. New software integrates the performance of the engine and eight-speed planetary transmission, and the new models also feature higher-capacity wet disc service brakes and new cabs that are 21 percent larger than G-Series models.
Cat completely redesigned the tractor for its 613G scraper with a C6.6 engine delivering 3 percent more horsepower and a new torque converter increasing rim pull. With faster elevator and travel speeds, the 613G can load material as much as 13 percent faster than its predecessor.
Replacing the 657E, Caterpillar's 657G open-bowl scraper features Cat's C18 ACERT engine for the tractor and the C15 ACERT engine for the scraper. The largest of eight machines in the G Series wheel tractor-scrapers, the 657G has a heaped capacity of 44 cubic yards and a rated load of 104,058 pounds.
The new Cat® C Series articulated dump trucks—725C, 730C, and 730C EJ ejector—feature new engines with more power, advanced transmission control, enhanced operator amenities, new serviceability features, and for the 730C and 730C EJ models, automatic traction control.
The Cat 586C Site Prep Tractor, says Caterpillar, is a multi-purpose, heavy-duty machine designed to handle demanding attachments, such as mulchers and brush cutters.
