Benefits and Features


Standard 60 mm (24") stairways with an optional Powered Access Stairway allow easy and safe access and egress.

Integrated Blended Braking with Traction Control

Front brakes are automatically blended when slip is sensed to give excellent control in slippery conditions. The operator can also choose full time front brake blending. Front brakes are also automatically blended when dynamic retarding approaches 90% of its capacity. Front brake blending yields superior control and high operator confidence.

GVW within Tire Manufacturers Guidelines

At rated GVW the 795F AC is within tire loading guidelines for approved 56/80R63 and 59/80R63 tires.

Cat Detect System

Knowing what's around your 795F AC at all times is important. The Cat Detect system is factory installed as standard equipment on 795F AC Mining Trucks.

The full Cat Detect system, RADAR AND CAMERA, provides both audible and visual indications of detected objects. This system uses a combination of short and medium range radars which surround the machine, along with cameras on each side to allow the operator to confirm the detected object.

The cameras supplement the radar alerts and are selectable by touch screen menus through an intuitive interface.


— Over 5.5 million hours of field operation and powertrain validation
— More than 60,000 hours on the highest-hour 795F AC
— 5,300 C175 engines in operation with more than 63 million hours in machine applications


The Cat 795F AC is long-lasting, easy to service and reliable.
— With the right plan, it has been proven to deliver 90% availability.


— Strong dynamic retarding
— Robust design empowers operator to use oil-cooled brakes regardless of speed or payload


The individual components, software, systems and engine that go inside a Cat truck have different purposes, but they have one very important thing in common: They are all manufactured by Caterpillar and supported by the Cat dealer network.

This integration ensures that the entire truck — from body to bumper, engine to electronics — can be fully optimized to deliver the lowest cost per ton.


The 795F AC is simple to learn and simple to operate thanks to a control and integration package that works seamlessly with the truck's powertrain components.

The Cat engine, AC drive system, hydraulics and controls have been integrated to make the 795F AC easy to operate, providing excellent slow speed control within the service areas, and superior throttle response on acceleration out of loading or dumping areas.
— Integration of the engine and powertrain delivers low operating costs through electronically combined powertrain components.


No one knows more about how to get the most from a piece of Cat equipment than your local Cat dealer. This one-of-a-kind, on-the-ground support network delivers expert service, integrated solutions, after-sales support, fast and efficient parts fulfilment, world-class rebuild and remanufacturing capabilities, and more.

Cat dealers operate as nearly 200 local businesses — each one fully embedded in and committed to the geographic area it serves. That means you work with people you know, who know your business, and who respond on your timeframe.


Governments and regulatory agencies mandate that you establish and follow environmentally sound policies and practices as you meet the demand for mined materials. We're focused on doing our part to make sure our trucks help you meet those regulations.


We've designed the 795F AC to be more fuel efficient, which reduces engine emissions. The truck offers continuous rear axle filtration, extended life filters and extended maintenance intervals, which aid in decreasing the amount of waste contributed to the environment.

We also continue to research alternative energy sources such as biofuels (B20) and a liquefied natural gas-supplied Dynamic Gas Blending solutions, electrification and trolley to find new ways to reduce emissions. In addition, we preserve raw materials, conserve energy and reduce emissions through the Cat Reman program, which returns end-of-life components to like-new condition.


The Cat AC drive is a high voltage system (2,600 volts) that operates at lower current than most competitive trucks. When combined with Cat's total integration and design of the truck and drive system, the result is higher efficiency, lower heat generation, smaller and lighter components, and longer component life.
—The Enhanced Engine Oil Filtration (EEOF) package, eliminates the need for an engine oil filter change and reduces oil usages.


When connected to the trolley system, the truck's propulsion system becomes powered purely with electricity from the power grid, minimizing the use of the diesel engine and maximizing the full potential of the wheel motors.

The truck experiences a 90%+ reduction in diesel fuel burn rate while connected to the trolley line, with an approximate savings of 40 liters (10.6 gallons) of diesel fuel per each 1000 m (3,281 ft) of trolley operation. The use of trolley assist has been shown to increase machine engine life by up to approximately 25%.

Thanks to the significant decrease in diesel fuel burn while on trolley, engines are exposed to less wear and tear, thus increasing the engine's life until overhaul.


Cat trucks are designed to last over 100,000 hours, and many are going well beyond that. The frame, powertrain, engine and components are built to be rebuilt — using new, remanufactured or rebuilt parts and components — so you can take advantage of multiple lives of like-new performance at a fraction-of-new price.


— Lower empty weight
— Higher-rated Gross Machine Weight (GMW)
— Higher-rated field payload than competitors


— Many engines approaching 4.3 million liters / 1.1 million gallons of fuel burn
— Engine life beyond 20,000 hours

This autonomous hauling solution helps improve productivity, efficiency and profitability while reducing overall costs.

What if your trucks could respond to calls to the shovel, move into position, haul to dump points and even report for maintenance — all without an operator on board? That's what Cat Command for hauling enables.

But this autonomous Cat MineStar solution is more than just an operator-free system. It takes advantage of the most sophisticated technologies available to deliver a next-generation haulage solution — one that boosts safety, productivity and availability on busy mine sites, especially those in difficult or remote locations. With autonomous hauling, the future is here — and we're there to help you bring it to your operation.


With the MineStar Detect proximity detection system, you can equip your 795F with cameras to give your operators a better view of what's happening around their equipment — or combine cameras and radar into a true object detection system that automatically alerts operators to hazards.

You can even add satellite capabilities to provide proximity warnings and avoidance zones, seat-belt monitoring that encourages operators to buckle up, and in-cab systems that intervene when they detect fatigue or distraction.


When it comes to truck bodies, one size does not fit all. And when it comes to your Cat truck, Cat bodies are the best choice. We follow a dynamic approach to engineering — treating the body as part of a system rather than a static structure. Cat bodies are designed to be an integral part of the entire vehicle system, ensuring you achieve maximum chassis life.
— They're sized to meet payload requirements without compromise to vehicle balance, braking or control.
— From the design to the materials, manufacturing to shipping, the entire process meets Cat standards of quality and control.
— The Caterpillar exclusive 10/10/20 payload guidelines help achieve a balance of excellent payload with safe operation.

Integrated Body and Chassis Design

Integral to the truck the body is designed to fit with the chassis and work as part of the truck system. Each body is sized to meet the payload requirements without compromise to vehicle balance, braking or control.

High Efficiency (HE) Body

The body is sized and configured to meet the specific needs dictated by fragmentation, abrasion, cohesion, and the loading tool to maximize the payload capability of the truck.

  • Curved floor, front, and canopy strengthens entire body as a structure.
  • Strength of base plates allows minimal wear package and low operating weight.
  • Joint isolation system reinforces welded areas and exploits high strength main plates.
  • Runners transfer weight to the truck frame.
