Caterpillar adds to its mining line; New haul trucks fill out the surface mining portfolio

Mining Engineering, 2019, Vol. 71, No. 1, pp. 26-26
Gleason, William


PREVIEW:

Caterpillar is the largest manufacturer of mining equipment in the world. In hundreds of surface mines around the globe Caterpillar’s flagship 793 haul trucks can be found moving material for copper, coal, gold, iron ore and other mines. Likewise, its iconic yellow bulldozers are at mine sites the world over – the company recently announced the sale of its 40,000th large dozer. And since its acquisition of Bucyrus in 2011, Caterpillar has positioned itself to become a worldwide leader in the underground mining sector as well.

But don’t think that the company is resting on its reputation. As evidence of its commitment to the global mining sector, as well as its confidence in the future of mining, Caterpillar invited mining trade press, including Mining Engineering, to its Tinaja Hills Training Center near Tucson, AZ in November to introduce the latest editions to its mining portfolio. The two-day event focused mostly on the newest electric drive haul trucks, the Cat 796 AC, which will operate in the 326-t (360-st) class and the 798 AC in the 360 t (400 st) weight class.
