Caterpillar Inc. - 740B Bare Chassis Articulated Dump Trucks

The new Cat® 740B with 39.5 tonnes (43.5 tons) rated payload offers proven reliability and durability, high productivity, superior operator comfort and lower operating costs. The spacious two-person cab with forward facing passenger seat and off road oil/nitrogen front suspension cylinders keep the operator comfortable through out the working day. The true “on-the-go” Automatic Traction Control (ATC) automatically modulates the correct level of Inter-Axle and Cross-Axle differential lock engagement which will improve cycle times and productivity. No operator interaction. Strong, durable Cat ACERT™ engines with the Tier 4 Interim/EU Stage IIIB exhaust emission solution and electronically controlled smooth shifting transmissions deliver high productivity with low fuel consumption. There are significant changes/improvements to the engine/transmission software that result in smoother gear changes.
