Power Train - Engine

The Cat 3516B High Displacement engine is built for power, reliability and efficiency for superior performance in the toughest applications.

Separate Circuit Aftercooler

Allows the aftercooler circuit to operate cooler than jacket water temperature for a denser air charge and greater combustion efficiency.

Cooling System

The new modular higher density cooling system with larger fans is hydraulically driven for more efficient cooling with lower fuel consumption and noise levels.

Oil Renewal System (ORS)

Optional oil renewal system extends engine oil change intervals from 500 hours to 4,000 hours or more to increase machine availability and reduces costs.

Engine Protection

Computerized system electronically protects the engine during cold starts, high altitude operation, air filter plugging, and high exhaust temperature.

Power Train - Merchandising Arrangements

Five configurations are performance matched to meet specific applications and conditions.

Power Train - Transmission

Cat mechanical power train delivers more power to the ground for greater productivity and lower operating costs.

Engine/Power Train Integration

Electronically combines critical power train components to work more intelligently and optimize overall truck performance.

Caterpillar Brake System

Reliable braking with superior control gives the operator the confidence to focus on productivity.


Rugged Cat structures are the backbone of the 793D mining truck's durability.

Monitoring System

Vital machine health and payload data keeps the 793D performing at peak production levels.

Truck Body Systems

Cat designed and built for rugged performance and reliability in the toughest mining applications.

Customer Support

Caterpillar dealers have what it takes to keep mining haul trucks productive.

Operator's Station

Ergonomically designed for operator comfort, superior control and high productivity.


Less time spent on maintenance means more time on the haul roads.


Caterpillar mining machines and systems are designed with safety as the first priority.
