Performance and comfort of Caterpillar 777G truck

By Evelina Jonaityte - June 19, 2020

Success in the mining industry takes more than good quality equipment. It takes a partner who goes beyond the iron to help you address your toughest challenges and take advantage of your biggest opportunities. That partner is the manufacturer and it is very important to choose the right one. 

Caterpillar is the world’s largest construction equipment manufacturer which designs, develops, engineers, manufactures, markets and sells machinery and engines to customers via a worldwide dealer network. It is not a secret that Caterpillar is ranked as one of the top companies in the world’s Fortune list and a lot goes into delivering that value. Like faster speed on grade for improved productivity. A large empty weight advantage that ensures maximum payload. Higher retarding and better braking for safer, more confident operators. Total Cat integration, which results in highly efficient systems and performance. And high reliability, so trucks spend more time hauling material than they do sitting in the maintenance shop. 

With a truck for every site or application — no matter the size class or drive system — and a complete lineup of loading tools, Caterpillar delivers a complete loading and hauling solution that delivers a better bottom line to all the mines.

Caterpillar G Series represents a new era for this size class. They have designed and manufactured a truck that is reliable, economical and offers comfort, confidence, and control for the operators. 

  • Up to 13% less fuel consumption: utilizing Adaptive Economy Mode helps save on fuel consumption while maintaining productivity.
  • Expanded comfort: left side seat placement allows for easier operation and comfort throughout the day.
  • Improved performance: helps to get the job done faster and more efficiently with increased travel speeds and improved traction control. 

The 777G is also designed to minimize slips and falls, providing firm footing and stability so the focus is on personnel: 

  • Ground level daily check points.
  • Low-effort, integrated access system with hand rails for three-points of contact.
  • Aggressive tread plate on all step areas with lighted access for after dark.
  • Integrated windshield washing platform.

These features are very important for the overall performance of the mining operation. The most important thing is to choose a technology that is different from the other equipment that was used in the past. And the technology in the Cat 777G provides the miners with safer conditions than they have had in the past.
