New Cat 793 features best-in-class payload, increased fuel efficiency and faster cycle times
Building on a foundation of nearly 6,000 trucks sold, the new Cat 793 offers up to 6 percent more payload than the 793F and boasts the highest payload in its size class, up to 244 t (265 st). The available High Performance (HP) Body design further reduces empty machine weight to increase payload capacity.
Increased productivity combines with industry-leading powertrain efficiency to deliver up to 10 percent more fuel efficiency than competitive trucks and up to a 5 percent lower fuel consumption compared to the 793F. A choice of full or economy mode settings fine-tunes power needs to the task at hand. Full integration of all Cat components, software, systems and engine ensures the entire truck can be fully optimized to deliver the lowest cost per ton.

It travels at a class-leading speed of 12.9 km/h (8 mph) on 10 percent grades and can navigate a maximum 25 percent grade fully loaded. Enhanced automatic retarding control automatically selects optimum speed based on grade, payload and brake oil temperature to increase speed up to 25 percent during retarding.
The Cat C175-16 engine powering the new 793 has more than 21 million operating field hours and can achieve over 3.8 million L (1 million gal) of fuel burn before overhaul. It’s new Cat enhanced oil filtration system increases engine life, eliminates cartridge filter changes and allows for extended oil change intervals. With its gross 1976 kW (2,650 hp) rating, the engine can be ordered in U.S. EPA Tier 2 equivalent or Tier 4 Final/EU Stage 5 configurations to meet any region’s emissions standards.
