CAT 797 haul truck mining dump truck

The 797 is one of the biggest dump trucks on a mine site with a ladder stairway leads the operator straight into the cockpit, essentially, you are working at heights when beginning your pre-start checklist.

These machines really are the work horse of the mining sector, hauling load after load, day in day out – often working round the clock in shifts to get the most out of every day. These monster mining trucks are ultra class, with a tough two-axle design and powerful tourque engine which is perfect for the different types of mine sites in Australia.

These machines are expensive to build and operate, so mining companies are always on the lookout for good operators who understand the need to treat these vehicles with the respect they deserve. Coming in at around 7 million each, with tyres costing anywhere from $45,000 per piece, these machine need to be taken care of.

The 797F, can transport about 400 tons making it one of the largest haul truck payload capacities in the world.

With a top speed of 67.6 km/h, given the size and weight of the 797, it can really move; and it has the grunt and power to tackle most inclines and difficult driving conditions. In some of the highest mines in the world, the CAT 797 has been flow up to the mine in pieces and assembled on site.
