The 779-horsepower, 70-ton-capacity Cat 775G off-highway truck, with a target gross weight of 246,500 pounds, meets EPA Tier 4 Final emissions standards.
The 779-horsepower, 70-ton-capacity Cat 775G off-highway truck, with a target gross weight of 246,500 pounds, meets EPA Tier 4 Final emissions standards. The new truck uses Caterpillar’s Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Strategy that is designed to enhance productivity, fuel efficiency and drive-train durability by allowing two shift-mode selections. The control system also integrates an optional engine-compression brake with an automatic retarder control to enable faster downhill travel and faster cycles without increased fuel consumption. The 775G, which will replace the Cat 775F, also features a new cab that is quieter by 4dB(A).
Caterpillar 770G and 772G off-highway trucks have nominal rated payload capacities of 40 and 52 tons, respectively, and use Cat C15 (770G) and C18 (772G) engines, with net power ratings of 477 (770G) and 550 (772G) horsepower.
The new D-Series Unit Rig model integrates a Cat 3516C HD engine and the Cat 240T AC electric drive system with the existing Unit Rig MT4400 to create the MT4400D AC.
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.
