Volvo launches Dig Assist in North America, an intuitive machine control solution for crawler excavators

Volvo Dig Assist unlocks the full potential of an excavator’s productivity. Utilizing Volvo Co-Pilot — the award-winning in-cab interface with 10-inch high-resolution touch screen — Dig Assist allows operators to easily input job specifications and track progress along the way to ensure the job is done right the first time, every time.

“We’ve designed Dig Assist in a way that is very easy to learn and very intuitive to use — requiring as little as 10 minutes of upfront training and only a few touches to get started with a new job,” said Matt McLean, product manager, GPE products at Volvo Construction Equipment. “Once you’re up and running, there’s no more guesswork. You can design and track progress in real time — thereby reducing the need for on-site engineers, surveyors, and manual grade and depth checks. It’s very simple to use, but can make an enormous impact to productivity and job profitability.”

Cat articulated truck adds new cab design, advanced control features

Offering a 45.2-ton (41-tonne) rated payload capacity, the new Cat 745 articulated truck features a world-class cab design, completely re-engineered from the inside-out using global operator feedback to advance comfort and ease of operation. The new external “spinal” ROPS structure boasts bonded rear quarter glass that eliminates the structural pillar to give the operator a dramatic improvement in visibility from the cab. Upon cab entry, the new “wake up” feature initiates machine displays as soon as the door is opened, while the lighter/stronger cab door offers shut assist for improved sealing against dust infiltration.
