The new Cat 745C articulated truck was introduced Feb. 6, 2015 as an upgrade to the 740B. While it is no wider or higher than the 740B, the 745C’s high-capacity body is created to give you more payload and faster cycle times – meaning you can add one to your operation and not change loading tools or site requirements.
This new truck features a Cat C18 engine and a new, high-efficiency transmission with 9F/2R speeds and APECS gear-shifting technology. The truck body has an increased capacity of 43.5 tons to 45 tons rated payload.
Other features include a fully automatic retarder control and upgraded automatic traction control system – both of which increase production and efficiency. The hill assist and waiting brake eliminates the need to use the parking brake during operation, and the redesigned cab is made for comfort for both operator and passenger.
