Caterpillar 772 construction/quarry off-highway hauler truckCaterpillar’s new 770 and 772 construction/quarry trucks look remarkably different from the models they replace. Notice the all-new center-mounted cab and body style. With the introduction of those trucks, Caterpillar will discontinue the 769 and 771. Model 772 enters a new size class for Caterpillar at 50 tons and is aimed at both construction and quarry markets. The new trucks are powered by Tier III ACERT engines. Model 770 features a 476-net-hp C15 and the 772 uses a 535-net-hp C18. Engines also have the MEUI Fuel system. A choice of dual slope and flat floor body systems are available with three different steel liner packages and two rubber liner packages. With five different body-liner systems, the 770 and 772 can be configured for specific applications to achieve maximum capacity. Trucks are slated to be in production by the first quarter of 2007.
