Cat on display at CONEXPO

Caterpillar's 775G off-highway truck will go into production with a Tier 4 Final engine.

While there is much intrigue about Caterpillar's new vocational truck, the CT660, being shown publicly for the first time at this year's CONEXPO, the company is debuting over 12 other new machines. One of them, the G Series 775, is being hailed as the first Cat machine to go into production with a Tier 4 Final emissions solution. Most of the other new machines on display, such as the wholly redesigned H Series 627 wheel tractor-scraper, will showcase a Tier 4 Interim solution. Cat's emissions reduction technologies are integrated into the machine design and allow Cat Tier 4-ready products to "perform at peak production while reducing emissions by approximately 90%."
