What's New In Plant & Equipment

New CAT 770G & 772G Off-Highway TrucksNew CAT 770G & 772G Off-Highway Trucks

Caterpillar has recently announced the introduction of the latest models in the off-highway truck range. The Cat 770G and 772G off-highway trucks feature major advancements across the models.

With nominal rated payload capacities of 36.3 and 47.1 mt, respectively, the new trucks use Cat C15 (770G) and C18 (772G) engines.

For different market requirements, the trucks are available in Tier 2/Stage II, Tier 3/Stage III, and Tier 4-Final/Stage IV configurations, the engines can be programmed to achieve the customer’s specific fuel economy goals. Two programmable modes are available: Economy and Adaptive Economy.

Caterpillar’s solution for Tier 4 Final exhaust emissions on the C15 and C18 engines is Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).

A new transmission control system, Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Strategy (APECS), provides a number of benefits, including improved shift quality, faster acceleration, better speed on grade and faster cycle times.

This new control strategy modulates shift points to match optimum operating speed and torque; minimizes torque spikes during shifts; reduces stress on the drive train which increases drivetrain component life; provides greater operator comfort and control, and reduces material spillage.

770G SpecsOperator environment and safety

The trucks have a new four post ROPS/FOPS structure that is integral with the cab. The center cab position provides ample interior room and creates a walk-in style cab, allowing the operator to easily enter and exit.

Operator safety is enhanced with handrails, lighting, and a low-effort stair step system using a star pattern tread plate on the walkways, allowing the operator to safely get on and off of the truck. A new rear hinged door provides immediate accessibility to the cab, and new hand rails on the ROPS posts facilitate safe cleaning of the front windshield.
