Cat Mining Trucks 793D - New Off-Highway Trucks

Caterpillar 793D Haul Truck Overview

The Caterpillar 793D is a big machine, one of the biggest you’ll find on a mine site. These trucks are huge and are used all across the world in above ground, open cut mining. They carry a huge amount of earth, coal, rock, approximately 218.0 tonnes – so operating a CAT 793D takes a lot of experience.

These trucks are all left hand drive, so in Australia for instance, it not only takes some getting used to driving one (which is like driving a small apartment block down the road), operators here must get used to maneuvering on the opposite side of the vehicle. With a top speed of just under 55kmph, these trucks don’t like anything to be in their way.
