ENHANCE SAFETY & PRODUCTIVITY AT YOUR QUARRY, MINE, OR JOB SITE
At mining and quarry sites, haul road dust can take a high toll on both safety and productivity. Accidents can happen, operations can grind to a halt. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Let’s lean into the dust together, with the confidence to power through it.
—Lower dust levels, increase visibility, maintain haul road safety
— Know where and when to water
— With automated water delivery, the operator can remain focused on traffic and driving
— When the water tank is full, the auto shutoff feature prevents overfilling and results in increased component life
— Monitor tank fill from inside the cab
— The water delivery system features automatic start and stop, based on truck speed, which eliminates overwatering at road intersections to improve safety for all vehicles on site
DESIGNED WITH SAFETY IN MIND
The 777 is designed to minimize slips and falls, providing firm footing and stability.
— Ground level daily check points
— Low-effort, integrated access system with hand rails for three-points of contact
— Aggressive tread plate on all step areas with lighted access for after dark
— Integrated windshield washing platform
CONFIDENCE AND CONTROL
Confident operators will move material quickly, efficiently, and profitably.
— Wet Disc Braking is standard on all four corners of the truck
— Four corner park brake for slope holding capability and brake wear indicator

MEET YOUR PRODUCTION TARGETS
Properly watered haul roads directly impact fleet cycle times, enabling you to meet production targets.
— Spend less time maintaining haul roads using proper watering techniques to solve overwatering and underwatering
— Prevent damage to trucks and reduce unplanned downtime with properly watered haul roads
— Pump features soft startup and shuts off automatically when the tank is empty, eliminating damage and preventing the pump from running dry
The 777 is faster and more efficient with increases in torque, new transmission controls, and higher travel speeds.
— 7% increase in torque puts more power to the ground
— New transmission controls carry more torque through the shifts – most noticeably on grades
CONSERVE WATER. USE ONLY WHAT YOU NEED.
Water is a precious resource: The Cat Water Delivery System (WDS) helps you manage water effectively and sustainability — helping you do more with less.
— WDS utilizes automatic start and stop to help eliminate overwatering at road intersections
— WDS provides variable water flow based on truck speed, ensuring most efficient water placement
— The water cannon operates while truck is idling, reducing fuel consumption by up to 50%
FUEL & EMISSIONS
— Two fuel economy modes can be adjusted to meet your daily production needs
— For the U.S. and Canada, Tier 4 emission controls are available
— Remanufactured parts are an economical and eco-friendly alternative to new
— Extend tire life by using the TKPH/TMPH feature that calculates tire loading
— A mud protection package is available to help keep power train components clean
— Castings and box section frame construction ensure long-life
— A new rear axle housing adds strength and enables axle filtration and lubrication
— Hydraulic oil filter life is extended to 1,000 hours under normal conditions
— Autostall enables quick operating temperatures for best performance and life
— Delayed Engine Shutdown prevents hot shut downs that can reduce component life
TIER 4 / STAGE V
— Two engine-mounted diesel oxidation catalyst canisters control particulate matter
— Our NRS Technology replaces a portion of intake air with exhaust gas to control combustion temperatures and NOx production
— Precise, extremely fine atomization of fuel under all load conditions
LOWERING YOUR FUEL COSTS
The 777 introduces several key fuel conservation features:
— Auto Neutral Idle: as the 777 idles in a forward gear, the transmission will automatically slip in and out of a neutral state to avoid stalling the torque converter and raising engine rpm.
— Engine Idle Shutdown: when your truck is in park and idles for more than a preset time, 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.
— Speed Limiting: while you can continue to gear limit your trucks, Caterpillar offers speed limiting that allows the truck to travel at a more fuel efficient engine speed and gear selection.
— Transmission Controls: new APECS transmission controls increase fuel efficiency by maintaining momentum and speed on grade.
WATER DELIVERY SYSTEM:
The water cannon operates at idle, which reduces fuel consumption during cannon operation by up to 50%.
STANDARD ECONOMY MODE:
Standard Economy Mode can save fuel by adjusting engine power through this newly adjustable economy mode. Adjust the power based on your site, fleet, and economic conditions.The power can be reduced from 0.5 to 15%.
ADAPTIVE ECONOMY MODE:
Adaptive Economy Mode requires a baseline for production from using the Advisor display. As the truck transits the haul road, it is constantly evaluating its ability to meet your baseline in a reduced power rating. Where full power is needed, full power is applied. Where reduced power works, reduced power is applied. It’s fully automatic with no special operation required.
