The 740 with expanded capacity features differential locks that can be engaged and disengaged on the go for faster cycle times in challenging underfoot conditions and on steep grades. The 740 delivers excellent flotation and traction to haul efficiently in difficult terrain. The 740 with expanded capacity maintains the Cat articulated truck world class ride comfort, which also contributes to faster cycle times. A Cat C15 engine with ACERT Technology powers the truck and delivers 453 net horsepower (338 kW) while optimizing fuel efficiency to get more work done per unit of fuel.
