Caterpillar introduces the 740 articulated truck with expanded capacity — now 43.5 tons (39.5 metric tons), the biggest payload of all the 40-ton size class articulated trucks. Expanded capacity enables greater productivity and lower cost per ton in high volume earthmoving applications. The expanded capacity truck body handles 31.4 cubic yards (24 cubic meters).

It also features differential locks that can be engaged and disengaged on-the-go for faster cycle times in challenging underfoot conditions and on steep grades. The 740 delivers excellent flotation and traction to haul efficiently in difficult terrain. The 740 with expanded capacity maintains the Cat® articulated truck world-class ride comfort, which also contributes to faster cycle times.

A Cat C15 engine with ACERT® Technology powers the truck and delivers 453 net horsepower (338 kilowatts) while optimizing fuel efficiency to get more work done per unit of fuel. The responsive engine employs advanced intake air management and precise combustion control to meet exhaust emissions regulatory requirements — U.S. EPA Tier 3 and EU Stage IIIa — without the exhaust gas recirculation system used on competitive engines.
