Cat-IMG_4765 - 772G - high res

The new Cat 770G and 772G off-highway trucks were redesigned with major advancements in emission technology, transmission and traction control systems; frame, drive-train and cooling system enhancements; added operator amenities; and serviceability improvements.

Available in Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Final configurations, the engines can be programmed to achieve the customer’s specific fuel economy goals.

Two programmable modes are available, Economy and Adaptive Economy, while a new auto neutral idle feature automatically places the transmission in neutral gear after the brake is applied for more than 15 seconds while in a forward gear.

A new transmission control system, Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Strategy (APECS), offers improved shift quality, faster acceleration, better speed on grade, and faster cycle times.

Also new is a four-post ROPS/FOPS structure that is integral to the cab, and the cab is resiliently mounted to the frame to dampen sound and vibration.

Operator safety is enhanced with handrails, lighting, and a low-effort stair step system.

Both trucks come standard with VIMS 3G, Cat’s Vital Information Management System, Truck Production Management System (TPMS), TMPH (Ton Mile Per Hour) / TKPH (Tonne Kilometer Per Hour) tire management system, and Product Link.
