Caterpillar 797F, 795F-AC & 793F Mining Trucks

At MINExpo 2008 Caterpillar introduce four new trucks. The 793 series in the 240- to 250-ton class will be available in both mechanical (793F) and electric (793F AC) versions. The 345-ton 795F AC, a new size for Caterpillar, will be available in electric drive only, while the flagship 797B is replaced by the new 797F mechanical drive, maintaining its 380- to 400-ton target payload. The 797F and 795F AC, along with the recently introduced 777F, displayed on the exhibit floor. Completing Caterpillar's new mining truck line will be new versions of the 785 and 789 mechanical drive trucks, upgraded to meet customer requirements for safety, serviceability, operator comfort and emission standards.

Some great pictures of the new Caterpillar F-series trucks, the 797F, 795F-AC & 793F Trucks.

  3. Still doesn't hold a candle to the production and fuel consumption of the 400ton Liebherr T 282 B. I'd take a Liebherr over a cookie cutter, mass produced CAT any day.

  4. THe 282B is one of the worst trucks I have ever seen. I have worked on the 797 and the 282 and the 282 is not as reliable or built tough enough. Cat all the way

  5. The productivity and performance of Caterpillar 793C's and 797B's mechanical drive OHT are way better, compared with The electric drive Komatsu 930E. Caterpillar just need to update some minor issues on these large trucks, especially the front suspensions durability which are defeated by 930E suspension technology.

  8. the 282B with the detroit diesel is a different animal. As quick as a 793 up a ramp fully loaded. All ultra class trucks are shite to work on. I bet the diff whine on a 797 would get rather tiring after a 12 hr shift. They definetely need to do something with the electric drive and also change the front suspension. As the mines get bigger and deeper the electric drive trucks will win the day especially when you can hook them to the mains like dodgem cars. The cost of electric drive will be 1/3 the cost of diesel in this day and age. Not to mention the regen on down ramps.

  9. Dont be silly at 350 tons and up electrics are considerably more efficient, simpler easer to maintian more fuel efficient. Why else would cat begin to switch to them? As someone who operats a 282bfor over two years now T can tell you when we got the first few there was a lerning curve but now the clearly will run with the best. And now with our first Cats beginning to show up (795F"s and posibly 797's in the future) I'll be looking forward to see them live up to the CAT reputation.
