Caterpillar stretched its 740 articulated dump truck to 43.5 tons, the biggest payload among 40-ton-class ADTs. The body accommodates 31.4 cubic yards. A Cat C15 ACERT engine delivers 453 net horsepower and meets Tier 3 emissions limits without exhaust gas recirculation. The Cat-designed oil-over-nitrogen front suspension oscillates plus and minus 6 degrees, allowing the operator to travel at speed over rough terrain. Cat says its latest rear suspension blocks and mounts last as much as five times longer than previous designs. Differential locks with oil-cooled clutches can be engaged and disengaged on-the-roll. The 740 comes equipped with Cat Product Link factory installed to report location and machine-operating information wirelessly from remote work sites.
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.
Based on its 912 HM articulated dump truck, Hydrema 912HM flatbed ADT has a 1.6-foot extended rear half with a built-in tipping frame.
The new all-purpose 982M, which recently was added to the Cat Medium Wheel Loader range, is similar, says Caterpillar, to the 980K 12-ton Aggregates Handler.
The Cat MH3037 is the third model in a new wheeled-material-handler range that Caterpillar is introducing in the greater-than-25-ton size class.
