FEATURED EQUIPMENT: CAT 740 ARTICULATED TRUCK

This month’s featured equipment is the CAT 740 articulated truck. The CAT 740 Ejector Articulated Truck provides everything you would expect from a piece of genuine caterpillar construction equipment. This is the largest CAT Articulated Truck on the market, with the Ejector model featuring a four-cylinder hydraulic ram and blade that ‘ejects’ material out of the back of the truck body.

ALL THE CAT QUALITIES YOU EXPECT

This CAT 740 Articulated Truck has a 42 ton rated payload that has proven its reliability and high rate of productivity since this range of caterpillar heavy equipment was introduced in the early 2000s. Other features include:

  • Superior operator comfort
  • Spacious two-person cab with forward facing trainer/passenger seat
  • Off road oil/nitrogen front suspension cylinders keep the operator comfortable throughout the working day.
  • True “on-the-go” differential locks with simple operation improve cycle times and productivity.
  • Strong, durable Cat ACERT engines
  • Electronically controlled transmissions deliver high productivity with low fuel consumption.

THE C15 ACERT ENGINE

The Cat C15 ACERT engine provides engine technology supported by systems and components developed specifically for Caterpillar mining equipment

The ADEM A4 electronic control module manages fuel delivery and provides flexible fuel mapping, while multiple injection fuel delivery relies on a high degree of precision that is a feature of all Caterpillar equipment.

Noise reduction is achieved through design changes to the isolated top cover, oil pan, multiple injection strategy, insulated timing case cover, sculpted crankcase and gear train refinements.

The three-point front suspension with its oscillating axle and low-pressure ride struts, combined with the centre-mounted cab, offers unrivalled levels of ride comfort for the operator in all driving conditions.

SUPERIOR LEVEL OF OPERATOR COMFORT ENHANCES PRODUCTIVITY

The CAT 740 Ejector features a large two-person cab, offering comfortable working space for both the operator and trainer or trainee. All 700 Family articulated trucks use the same spacious cab design.

A full-sized trainer seat features a fully padded seat with a backrest and a wide seat belt for a secure and comfortable ride. The trainer seat is positioned next to the operator seat, giving both the operator and trainer a clear view of the instrument panel, controls and the road.

The 740 Ejector Caterpillar Articulated Truck also comes fitted out with Caterpillar’s standard air suspension seat with its cushioned upper high back, three-setting variable damping, ride zone indicator and customisable lumbar settings.

All these features work together to create the ultimate ease of operation, allowing operators to focus on productivity.

This CAT 740 Ejector Articulated Truck is just one of Resolute Equipment’s range of heavy equipment from Caterpillar, Hitachi, Komatsu and other respected brands that provide exceptional long-term value to operators in the mining, construction and earth moving sectors.
