Caterpillar has upgraded its largest mining truck to a new generation. The 400-ton 797F F-Series truck is powered by Cat’s new Tier 2-compliant C175-20 ACERT engine rated at 4,000 horsepower. For safety, Cat has increased the width of the walkways and stairway, reducing chances for tripping. Some elements of the cab also have been redesigned; for instance, Cat shifted the instrument panel to the center for better visibility, and angles the center console to face the operator to help reduce fatigue.
