Intelligent application of power and technology
The Cat C27 ACERT diesel engine is delivering 5% additional power to the drive train. As a result, new and more robust drive train components, including a larger drive shaft and differential gears have been designed to handle the power.
G Series introduces a new planetary powershift transmission control strategy called APECS. APECS takes the benefits of ECPC (Electronic Clutch Pressure Control) and adds part throttle shifting and torque shift management. The result is exceptionally smooth automotive-type shifting and ride quality. APECS also retains torque and momentum through the shifts; increasing performance on grades. The result is quick starts from a stand still and exceptionally smooth shift and ride quality.
A new Traction Control System is now steering sensitive to differentiate between tire spin or high speed turns. The system now uses the hydraulically applied service brakes (vs. spring applied secondary brakes) allowing it to engage sooner and at lower speeds. G Series TCS modulates power and braking instantaneously between the two wheel groups, allowing a more appropriate response to ground conditions, and returning the truck to solid footing much sooner.
Fuel Saving Strategies
Solutions that support your lowest cost per ton
Fuel Saving Strategies
- Standard Economy Mode - G Series can adjust engine power based on your individual needs. With this feature, fuel savings are achieved by reducing power between 0.15 to 15 percent.
- Adaptive Economy Mode - New for G Series - requires a baseline for production from you. As the truck goes through the haul cycle, it constantly evaluates your baseline against opportunities to reduce power and save fuel. It’s fully automatic with no special operation required.
- Speed Limiting - while you can continue to gear limit your G Series trucks, Caterpillar offers another alternative you can utilize which is the new speed limiting feature. Speed limiting allows the truck to travel in its most fuel efficient gear.
- Auto Neutral Idle - as the 775G waits for the loader or crusher while idling in a forward gear, the transmission will automatically slip into a neutral state to avoid stalling the torque converter and raising engine rpm. As soon as the operator releases the brake or applies throttle, the truck is instantly back in the forward gear.
- Engine Idle Shutdown - when your G Series truck is in park and idles for more than a preset time which is set by the customer, the truck will initiate engine shutdown to conserve fuel. This feature can be time adjusted or turned on or off according to your specific needs.
Designed for years of off-road service
New Brake Design
G Series has increased the number of springs in its brake design. This increases the force available to disengage the brakes ensuring clearances are maintained, reducing wear. A new brake wear indicator can be found on the rear wheels to help you monitor brake life. Extending brake life can also be achieved by choosing the optional Cat Engine Brake. This Caterpillar design works in conjunction with the automatic retarder control (ARC) to slow the machine.
Rear Wheel Steel Spindles
G Series wheel spindles are solid steel and interchangeable from one side to the other extending their useful service life.
Inverted Rear Cylinders
For G Series, Caterpillar has inverted the rear suspension cylinders to better protect the rods, keeping them cleaner for longer durations.
Updated castings, improved bolted joints and a larger rear axle have matched the chassis design with the higher power ratings and performance specifications of the truck.
Application specific designs for industry leading performance
G Series trucks retain the highly productive and reliable Cat C27 ACERT diesel engine.
- With a 5% boost in power, the C27 is delivering higher torque for work.
- With the precision and responsiveness of Cat MEUI™ fuel injectors and electronic controls, the C27 accurately controls fuel, emissions and performance.
- The C27 is carefully balanced with vibration controls that reduce noise and protect against unnecessary wear.
- The C27 is cooled by either a demand fan (standard on Tier 4 Final) or conventional cooling fan.
Planetary Powershift Transmission
With new control strategies, this proven transmission is better than ever. Its new features include gear changes as smooth as an automobile and more torque through the shifts getting the truck up to speed faster and negotiating grades quicker.
Major improvements for air quality using simple to use, reliable solutions
For customers purchasing trucks outside of North America, Caterpillar offers emission controls similar to those used for Tier 2/Stage II regulations.
G Series Body Strategy
Bodies to meet your application and material needs
Caterpillar has made it easier to get the right body for your materials and job site needs. The 775G has a Dual Slope, a Flat Floor and a Quarry body option. Our base Flat Floor and Dual Slope bodies have a 20 mm (0.78 in), 400 BNH steel floor. Adding a steel or rubber liner is optional for those applications when you are working with highly abrasive or high impact materials. Our Quarry body has a 25 mm (0.98 in), 400 BNH steel floor and is designed specifically for limestone applications without additional liners. Two additional liner packages for the Flat Floor and Dual Slope bodies are available from the factory:
- A 16 mm (0.62 in), 400 BNH steel liner
- A 102 mm (4.01 in) rubber liner
- Sideboards are optional from the factory for the flat floor or dual slope bodies.
- A body heat diverter kit is optional for both dual slope and flat floor bodies
You will find additional body specifications at the back of this document.
Caterpillar’s 10/10/20 Policy
Caterpillar’s 10/10/20 Payload Guidelines are in place to help you maximize component life and the availability of your truck. Your Cat dealer can further explain the 10/10/20 policy. For optimum body life, Caterpillar recommends that 110% payloads occur no more than 10% of the time and that the average of all loads equal the nominal payload. Payloads in excess of 120% of nominal exceed the truck’s design parameters.
Machine Information and Monitoring
Lowering your cost per ton with vital fleet information
Your G Series truck has the ability to communicate (and receive) valuable information. Information that can lead you to producing at a lower cost per ton.
The instrument cluster is used primarily by the operator for quick and simple machine information at a glance. This display also warns the operator with solid lights (Category 1 Warnings) or flashing lights (Category 2 or 3 Warnings) as well as an audible alarm when an event is occurring.
Cat Advisor Display
The Advisor Display has five menus: 1. Operator: allows 10 people to set up individual profiles and preferences. 2. Monitor: displays four parameters per screen including Payload - there are three sections, Payload State; Payload and Target. Payload State - will display “Loading”; “Last Pass” or “Loaded.” Payload - displays the calculated payload weight, weight is taken twice to confirm. Target - displays the target payload. 3. Service: diagnostics including events, data logger, parameters, calibrations and more. 4. Settings: set specific targets for autolube intervals, speed limit and more. 5. Service Mode: a portal to password protected parameters.
Vital Information Management System (VIMS™) is the hardware and software behind the machine information and payload tracking that comes through the Advisor display on your 775G truck. VIMS is standard, and like the Truck Production Management System, can greatly improve your ability to manage your fleet efficiency, machine production and provide operators with vital machine information.
Truck Production Management System (TPMS)
TPMS - Cat Truck Production Management System will help you get the best return on your truck investment by making sure you’re hauling appropriate payloads with every cycle.
- Indicator side lights show the loader operator when they are on their last pass and when the truck is fully loaded
- TPMS stores 2,400 payload cycles; reports on weights, haul cycle times, distances, with date and time stamps
Ton Kilometer per Hour (TKPH), Ton Mile per Hour (TMPH) Tire Monitoring
This program takes the payload value from TPMS, combines it with ambient air temperature, machine speed and the manufacturer’s TKPH (TMPH) rating for your tires and calculates tire condition continuously. As a tire approaches its temperature limits, the operator gets a warning inside the cab. This Caterpillar exclusive feature is an important tool in your efforts to extend tire life. NOTE: TKPH (TMPH) is a measure of the tire’s temperature limits to prevent reverse vulcanization of the tire and the associated damage.
Cat Product Link
Cat Product Link allows remote monitoring of equipment to improve overall fleet-management effectiveness. Product Link is deeply integrated into machine systems. Events and diagnostic codes, as well as hours, fuel, idle time and other detailed information are transmitted to a secure web based application, VisionLink™. VisionLink includes powerful tools to convey information to users and dealers, including mapping, working and idle time, fuel level and more. * Product Link licensing not available in all areas. Please consult your Cat dealer for availability.
Clean, convenient, time-saving solutions
G Series will introduce time-saving service improvements to simplify monitoring and maintaining machine fluid levels, help keep your site clean and reduce your costs associated with service.
