Caterpillar 785D Mining Truck

With the change to a higher displacement, Cat 3512C HD engine, the new Caterpillar 785D Mining Truck could gain engine life, it maintains fuel efficiency and is compliant with US EPA Tier II emissions standards. The 1,348-net-horsepower truck performs without derate at altitudes up to 14,000 feet, and can haul payloads up to 155 tons. Cat introduces the X body with the 785D, with volume of 111 cubic yards compared to the 102-cubic-yard dual slope body. Rear-axle oil filtration is intended to improve component life, and Cat claims its extended-life disc brakes, resistant to glazing, “may achieve up to double the wear life of standard brakes.”
