The 623F Elevating Scraper is a versatile, fast machine with a two-speed elevator drive and high hydraulic horsepower for maximum hauling and loading performance.
The six-cylinder, turbocharged engine is built for power, reliability and economy.
Proven Cat Engines
Proven Cat engines feature high torque rise for excellent lugging in tough loading applications and are designed to work long hours in the most demanding job conditions.
High displacement-to-horsepower ratio reduces stress for long engine life.
Direct injection fuel system is adjustment-free, with individual injection pumps and valves.
Automatic, variable-injection timing delivers fuel as needed for maximum fuel efficiency when engine rpm varies between cut or fill work and high speed hauling.
Fuel/Air Ratio Control
Fuel/air ratio control is tamper resistant. Break-off blots and seal wires protect the control from adjustments that will not meet emissions regulations.
Turbocharger air flow is matched with the horsepower rating for improved performance and lower emissions.
Exhaust ports have stainless sleeves to reduce heat rejection, resulting in less heat transfer to the jacket water system.
Dual-tube cooling jets in the block provide more oil to the bottom of the piston for better cooling.
Front Engine Support Group
Front engine support group is isolation-mounted to reduce vibration transfer.
Ground-Level Engine Shutoff Switch
Ground-level engine shutoff switch provides convenience and emergency access.
Laminated Thermo-Shield improves tractor protection by reducing the temperature of exposed engine surfaces, cools engine and operating compartments, improves hose and wiring life.
Smooth, automatic shifts for top production
Eight-Speed Power Shift Transmission
Eight-speed power shift transmission provides automatic, on-the-go shifting for simple, reliable operation. It also eliminates torque converter drive at haul road speeds above 5 mph (8km/h).
Neutral Coast Inhibitor Control
Neutral coast inhibitor control utilizes a ground speed sensor which automatically downshifts the machine to the current ground speed until torque converter drive speed is reached.
Top Gear Control
Top gear control helps prevent shifting above a programmed gear to better regulate haul road speeds.
Directional Shift Management
Directional shift management reduces drivetrain stress during an aggressive directional shift.
Electronic Programmable Transmission Control (EPTC II)
The Electronic Programmable Transmission Control (EPTC II) records both current and intermittent faults.
Smoother ride improves productivity.
Caterpillar cushion hitch design dampens shocks to provide a smoother ride. The result is higher speed capability, less machine wear and increased productivity.
Work-alone capability reduces the operating cost-per-ton.
Variable Speed Elevator
Infinitely variable speed elevator, in both forward and reverse, allows the operator to match elevator speed to material.
Ejector Bowl and Sides
Ejector bowl and sides have been raised, improving the load profile by providing better carrying capacity and material retention.
Comfort and control increase operator efficiency.
Sound suppressed, rubber-mounted ROPS cab reduces sound and vibration for comfortable, shift-long operation.
Electronic Monitoring System
The electronic monitoring system checks important machine systems and provides a three-level alert system.
Hydraulic Servo-Steering System
Hydraulic servo-steering system provides low-effort, automotive feel and excellent maneuverability.
Telescopic Steering System
The telescopic steering system is height adjustable and tilts at knee level for enhanced operator comfort and easy entry and exit.
Pilot-operated implement controls can reduce operator fatigue by requiring a very low effort to actuate a machine function.
Air suspension seat is multi-adjustable.
Radio Ready Arrangement
Radio ready arrangement includes speakers, a 5-amp converter and two radio openings. A 15/25-amp converter is available from Custom Products.
Simplified service means more productive uptime.
There are many convenient service features that keep these machines on the job.
O-ring Face Seals
O-ring face seals help make these machines "dry".
Hydraulic Chain Adjuster
New hydraulic chain adjuster is easily adjusted using a grease gun, reducing service time and improving overall chain life.
Centralized Lubrication Blocks
Centralized lubrication blocks for the hitch and steering reduce lube time.
Service points for the engine are grouped on the righthand side for easy access.
Platforms and Handholds
Service platforms and numerous handholds for easy access and safety.
Folded Core Radiator
Folded core radiator allows individual cores to be replaced as a module which reduces service time and expense.
Sealed Floor Rollers
Sealed floor rollers eliminate lubrication.
Unmatched in the industry.
Most Cat parts are immediately available from any dealer. Cat dealers rely on our worldwide computer network to find parts instantly and minimize machine downtime.
Machine Management Services
Cat dealers help manage your equipment investment with effective preventive maintenance programs.
Your dealer can arrange affordable financing for the entire Caterpillar product line.
Cat is committed to provide the most dependable machines on the market.
Optional retarder extends brake life when working on severe, downhill slopes.
Increased component commonality with other Cat scrapers improves parts availability.
Rounded off bumpers reduce hooking into high walls.
Ground-Level Engine Shut-Offs
Ground-level engine shut-offs for operator convenience and emergency access.
Extensive use of castings in the frame, hitch and bowl provides long service life.
Wiring Harness and Hose Assemblies
Wiring harness and hose assemblies run down the draft arms to eliminate the need for "jump-over" lines which can reduce hydraulic system efficiency.
Standard tires provide the maximum flotation.
Scraper Driveline Guard
Scraper driveline guard protects the output case, differential and ejector cylinder which can minimize driveline maintenance costs.
Laminated Thermo-Shield helps keep surface temperatures in the engine compartment below the flash point of diesel fuel.
