The Cat 740 GC articulated dump truck includes new controls, transmission-protection features, a hoist-assist system, an advanced traction-control system, a stability-assist system and fuel-saving ECO mode. It also incorporates an automatic retarder-control system. A combined transmission-and-hoist lever aims to provide single-lever control of gear selection and body-hoisting functions. The machine’s cab incorporates a rear-quarter glass that eliminates a structural pillar as well as a “wake-up” feature that initiates machine displays when the door is opened.
