Caterpillar’s new C-Series articulated dump trucks – the 23.6 tonne capacity 725C, 28 tonne capacity 730C, and its ejector body counterpart, the 730C EJ – will also be on show. All the models are available with either US Tier 2/EU Stage II equivalent, Tier 3/Stage IIIA equivalent, or Tier 4-Final/Stage IV-compliant engines to meet a range of emissions standards around the world.
The same engine options are available for the company’s new rigid haulers that will also be introduced at the show, form of the 36.3 tonne payload 770G and 47.1 tonne payload 772G. Other new equipment on Caterpillar’s stand will also include four new D Series skid steer loaders, a new range of compact tracked loaders and multi terrain loaders.
