Caterpillar and Cat dealers now offer Cat Certified Rebuild Upgrade (CCRU) services for older 785 and 789 large mining trucks. The rebuild programme for the original series and the B Series models of these trucks incorporates the technological advancements introduced with the C Series to improve operation and performance and reduce engine emissions.
The CCRU provides a full rebuild and certified rebuild warranty along with a Cat upgrade retrofit cab and chassis updates. The results are improved fuel economy, performance and productivity, as well as a modernised cab for operator comfort and improved engine emissions equivalent to US EPA Tier 1 standards for sustainable operation.
The Cat 3512B EUI engine for the 785 and the 3516B EUI engine for the 789 deliver about 5% more power and provide the potential for fuel savings of 3 – 4%. Also, recommended service intervals are extended from 250 to 500 hours.
The upgrade cab includes VIMS 4.0 for monitoring machine health and optimising production cycles to reduce cost per tonne. The full size trainer seat facilitates onsite training to help the operator perform safely and efficiently.
The CCRU programme for 785 and 789 trucks is available now in the US, Australia, Indonesia, South Africa, Chile and Russia.
