Latest vehicle enhances productivity and efficiency


he new Cat 785 mining truck enhances operator safety and performance, provides more intuitive and predictable operation,

delivers faster and easier access to data, and streamlines maintenance – to boost efficiency and lower costs. Leveraging the Next Generation concept, the new 150-ton class mining truck features an expandable technology platform, so it is future-ready.

“Te 785 was Caterpillar’s first large

mining truck, introduced in 1985. It’s fitting that the first Next Generation Cat mining truck is the new 785 – designed to enable mining operations to optimise productivity today and tomorrow,” says David Rea, general manager of Cat Large Mining Trucks. “Te new mining trucks feature a flexible technology platform and optional configurations that help each mining operation meet their goals.” Productive hauling begins with the

operator, who sits in the newly designed cab, designed for efficiency and equipped with features that automate functions. Te Next Generation 785 offers a new integrated speed coaching feature to give feedback on how to operate the truck most productively. Truck responsiveness


and controllability are enhanced through multiple upgrades such as the anti-lock brake system, dynamic stability control, enhanced traction control, machine speed limiting, hill start assist with anti-rollback, and cruise control. Additionally, new Auto Hoist control reduces dumping time and unburdens the operator. Te improved payload monitoring system offers more accurate measurement and dipper counts as well as enhanced overload detection and carryback calculation and reporting – to inform operators and production managers. Te 360° surround view camera delivers a full view of the working area to the operator. Inside the cab, guidance information, machine data and electronics controls are consolidated into two touch screens that eliminate clutter and promote efficiency. Te spacious new cab features a walk- through sliding centre console, increased legroom and new cab air filtration system for operator comfort. Te new deluxe seat boasts leather upholstery, air-adjustable bolsters and lumbar support, heated and cooled cushions, dynamic dampening, and a 30° recline with thigh tilt and extension, so it comfortably accommodates operators of all sizes.

ADVANCED POWERTRAIN Te Next Gen 785 is powered by the Cat 3512E engine offering selectable power options, allowing operations to match the speed of the fleet or to speed up cycle times. Two tyre options, 33R51 and 36R51 are available, to enable mines to optimise payload capacity. Te larger tyres allow a nominal payload of 142 tonnes (157 tons). Te truck is available in multiple emissions configurations to meet different regulatory requirements around the world. Te optional Tier 4 Final/ Stage V emissions configuration has shown fuel efficiency improvements of as much as 9%. Advanced electronic powertrain controls deliver faster cycle times and acceleration, less spillage and reduced road maintenance in addition to improved engine and drivetrain life.

STREAMLINED CONNECTIVITY AND MAINTENANCE Te new truck features enhanced connectivity with faster data transfer to improve access to information. Trough a two-wire ethernet, machine components communicate faster and provide more data. Each 785 is
