The next generation of Cat® Mining Trucks is here — built to be stronger, faster and more reliable than ever before. A wide variety of improvements, upgrades and features combine to deliver faster cycle times, longer component life, reduced fuel burn and the lowest cost per ton.
PARTNERS FOR THE LONG HAUL
What can you expect from a Cat next gen mining truck?
The lowest cost per ton over its life.
A lot goes into delivering that value. Like high speed on grade for improved productivity. A class-leading standard payload. Anytime braking plus front and rear wheel retarding for more confident operators.
Total Cat integration, which results in highly efficient systems and performance. And high reliability, so trucks spend more time hauling material than they do sitting in the maintenance shop.
With a truck for every site and application — no matter the size class or drive system — and a broad lineup of loading tools, WesTrac can offer you a complete loading and hauling solution that delivers a better bottom line to the most important mine in the world: yours.
Fully integrated Cat electronics on next gen mining trucks include 100 Mbps, two-wire ethernet connectivity for faster data transfer and improved access to information. The future-proof technology platform includes being factory-equipped with Cat Product Link Elite™ with standard connectivity via cellular 4G/LTE and available cellular/satellite radio for reliable data transfer.
The ability to access and analyse accurate, real-time data enables faster diagnostics and enhances the ability to predict and prevent machine failure, improving availability. A new telematics platform promotes better data acquisition and faster transmission to locally hosted or cloud-based applications such as Cat MineStar Solutions.
Cat MineStar Solutions
Your haul trucks are the lifeblood of your operation — and anything you can do to improve their performance can have a huge impact on the productivity and profitability of your operation. Cat MineStar Command for hauling can help you get the most out of your trucks, with technologies that improve cycle times, shorten shift changes, improve fuel efficiency and more.
This culminates with Caterpillar's industry-leading autonomous haulage system (AHS), which allows trucks to perform complete cycles with no operator involved.
Caterpillar and WesTrac are committed to joining you wherever you are on your technology journey. Our experts will work with you to develop a solution that meets your mine's specific challenges.
Next gen mining trucks can be equipped with all the hardware necessary for the Cat MineStar technologies of your choice, right out of the factory. Retrofit kits are also available to implement MineStar on machines already working in the field.
These next gen models are currently available to order:
Ready for Autonomy
Cat Next Gen Mining Trucks are ready to be autonomous with Cat MineStar Command for Hauling - a technology that can automate your haulage fleet and boost safety, productivity and availability on busy mine sites, especially those in difficult or remote locations.
Learn to drive autonomous trucks
The WesTrac Technology Training Centre in Collie southwest WA provides the industry with the latest autonomous technology and equipment to experience the real deal without the pressures of a functioning mine site. It is one of only two places in the world where you can learn how to drive the “driverless” Cat next gen mining trucks.
