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).
