Benefits and Features

  • Every Tier 4 Final/Stage IV Cat engine is equipped with a combination of proven electronic, fuel, air and aftertreatment components.
  • Maximized uptime and reduced cost with world-class support from the Cat dealer network.
  • Minimized impact of emission systems: designed to be transparent to the operator without requiring interaction.
  • Delivering better fuel economy with minimized maintenance costs while providing the same great power and response.
  • Advanced MEUI-C injector platforms deliver increased injection pressures and more precise fuel rates. These durable injectors enhance responsiveness while controlling soot.
  • All Cat engines feature innovative air-management systems that optimize airflow and enhance power, efficiency and reliability.
  • The Cat NOx Reduction System (NRS) captures and cools a small quantity of exhaust gas, then routes it back into the combustion chamber where it drives down combustion temperatures and reduces NOx emissions.
  • Cat engines equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system inject Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) into the exhaust to reduce NOx emissions. DEF is a precisely mixed solution of 32.5 percent high purity chemical grade urea and 67.5 percent de-ionized water.

  • Automatic Traction Control (ATC) engages inter and cross-axle differential locks on-the-go giving the operator optimum traction as conditions change.
  • Clutches release automatically to avoid conflict during tight turns.
  • ATC reduces tire and driveline wear, eliminating lost efficiency that can occur with improper manual operation.
  • Regeneration system provides on-the-go regeneration when conditions are right and low idle regeneration. Operator can initiate manual regeneration by stopping the machine and pressing the regeneration switch.

  • All three axles promote stability using oscillating a-frames with lateral tie rods. Operate at productive speeds with confidence while virtually eliminating impact loads on truck components.
  • The front suspension oscillates ±6° controlled by large-bore, low-pressure cylinders to assist in a smooth ride.
  • The rear suspension features a walking beam and long-life suspension mounts optimizing ride and load retention.
  • New fully enclosed wet disc brake systems inside of axles keeps contaminants out extending machine life and ensuring uptime.

  • Spacious cab delivers comfort all shift long.
  • Trainer/passenger seat is fully padded with wide, retractable seat belt for security and comfort.
  • Storage area behind the operator is larger with easier access.
  • Air-suspension seat offers greater comfort, adjustable damping and ride zone indicator. Fully adjustable allowing the optimal operating position.

  • Optional Bluetooth™ entertainment system allows operator to stay in hands-free phone contact.

  • Box section front and rear frames absorb stress loads and optimize suspension geometry.
  • Dump body design provides a large target area for consistent high-load carrying capacity increasing productivity.
  • Output transfer gear distributes power to tractor and trailer for optimum traction. Wet clutch ensures longevity.
  • Dual -circuit, all-wheel braking system uses full-power hydraulic system actuating enclosed, oil immersed, multi-disc brakes. Independent front and rear circuits and accumulators deliver smooth control.
  • Center axle parking brake is elevated away from damage. Spring applied with hydraulic release.

  • Product Link™ connects owners to their equipment, providing access to machine data such as location, hours, fuel consumption, idle time and events, and diagnostic codes.

  • Caterpillar design, manufacturing and customer service help ensure peak performance and uptime.
  • Long service intervals keep your machine operating.
  • Lubrication points are grouped near the hitch for fast, easy routine maintenance.
  • Universal joints are sealed and lubed for long life.
  • Optional Autolube system saves time and includes alerts via Product Link for low levels and fault codes.
  • Radiator package is located behind the cab for protection and uses extended-life coolant to stretch change intervals.

  • Cat C9.3 engine incorporates the Cat Clean Emission Module (CEM) to meet Tier 4 Final/Stage IV emission standards. The system uses both Ultra-low-sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel or up to B20 bio-diesel blended with ULSD.
  • All Cat C Series Articulated Trucks are designed for long lifecycles with machines using reman components and machine rebuilds to maximize use of every part, minimizing waste.

  • Standard Roll Over Protection System (ROPS) and Falling Object Protection System (FOPS) protect operators.
  • The 725C2 includes a rearview camera system which provides a continuous panoramic rear view, or activates only when reverse gear is selected.
  • Secondary and parking brake functions are spring applied/hydraulically released for an extra measure of safe operation.
  • Systems allow shutdown and prohibit start-up from ground level. Includes external engine fuel cut-off and electrical system disconnect.
  • Electro-hydraulic secondary steering automatically activates in forward/reverse or when stationary if low pressure is sensed maintaining full steering control.
  • Punched steel, slip resistant walkways work with extensive handrails and internal/external grab handles enhancing access/egress safety.
