CAT® ARTICULATED TRUCKS: Haul MORE, Move Less
Productivity meets comfort in the new Cat® Articulated Trucks. They build on the reliability and performance of their predecessors with comfortable cabs and automated features that help any operator deliver more production with less effort. You also get advanced engines that meet the latest emissions standards and increase power and torque up to 20%—without sacrificing fuel economy. If you’re looking to add to your hauling fleet or rent a dependable machine for a specific job, Cat Articulated Trucks bring more to your bottom line.
- Bigger payloads
Increased body volumes mean new Cat Articulated Trucks can haul more material—and with increased impact and wear resistance, they stand up to the rigors of the job. A 45-degree inward slope side rail helps load retention and keeps haul roads clear of debris.
- Money-Saving Features
New features on the 745 and 740 EJ keep your operating costs to a minimum. Economy mode saves you money when you don’t need to run at maximum power, reducing fuel consumption by an average of 5%. Lower front fenders made of durable, flexible rubber cut maintenance costs on sites where mud packing is an issue. A new rollover warning and hoist prevention system increases awareness of machine stability and aids in preventing costly damage from machine rollovers.
- Advanced transmissions
Smooth shifting. Better fuel efficiency. Faster cycle times. Quieter operation. And an automotive-like ride. Cat Articulated Trucks’ advanced transmissions deliver all that and more. One big reason why: Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Strategy (APECS) software, which optimizes gear selection in all operating situations for efficient performance and fuel economy.
- Automatic traction control
A proven traction control system delivers better performance in poor underfoot conditions or on grades. On the 730C and larger, it’s fully automated—requiring zero operator interaction. It engages and disengages as needed, adjusting the amount of torque required for each axle. Traction control is fully integrated with the truck’s steering system, making it easy for operators to navigate turns when it’s engaged.
- Major Cab Update
Completely updated cabs on the 745 and 740 EJ incorporate nearly two decades of operator input to boost comfort, safety and productivity. More glass means better sight lines and visibility—and it’s infrared to reduce solar heating. Decreased decibel levels and fewer, easier-to-use controls minimize fatigue. A new throttle smoothing feature keeps engine RPMs consistent over rough terrain and improves the ride for an operator. There’s even a heated/cooled seat and cooled lunch compartment.
- Integrated solutions
Monitor, manage and enhance the performance of your Cat Articulated Truck, your fleet and your jobsite with the technologies built into today’s machines. The right combination of product tracking, automated features and Cat Connect technologies can help you improve productivity, simplify operation and increase uptime.
- Real-time load weighing
The optional Cat Production Measurement system lets operators track productivity from the cab—with quick access to payload weights, load and cycle counts, and daily totals—so they can achieve precise targets every time. This Cat PAYLOAD technology helps boost productivity, lower costs and avoid potential overload damage.
- Automatic retarding control
Turn on this fully automatic feature and watch your Cat Articulated Truck manage retarding through a combination of engine brake, gear selection and service brake application—all without operator intervention. A manual system provides two levels of engagement if needed.
- Operator support
Hill Assist, which facilitates stopping and starting on grades, makes new Cat Articulated Trucks more efficient and easy to operate. So does the Wait Brake feature, which temporarily applies the service brakes during loading and dumping, reducing operator effort and fatigue for shift-long comfort.
- Remote product monitoring
Cat Connect LINK technologies provide valuable insights into how your truck is performing. Product Link™ tracks location, hours, fuel use, productivity, idle time and diagnostic codes. Through VisionLink®, you can access this data wirelessly—then make timely, fact-based decisions to maximize efficiency, improve productivity and lower costs. With the optional CPM system you can also remotely monitor payloads to track job site efficiency.
- Maximum uptime
For years, Cat Articulated Trucks have set the standard for durability. Our newest models are built to deliver even more. More reliability. More cycles. More profit. They’re loaded with features to maximize your uptime, even in the toughest conditions.
- Integrated design
Manufacturing an articulated truck that moves more—and does so while using less fuel and producing fewer emissions—requires deep system integration. Cat parts, components, sub-systems and technologies all work together to ensure you get the performance and productivity you deserve.
- Built-in versatility
We design our products with versatility in mind, so you can do more with less. Cat Articulated Trucks, for example, can move a wide spectrum of materials in a range of applications and underfoot conditions. That means you can buy or rent one machine for various tasks on different jobsites instead of using multiple machines for single tasks—a real money-saver.
