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 a 7% increase in torque for more power to the ground, new transmission controls, and higher travel speeds.
CONSERVE WATER. USE ONLY WHAT YOU NEED.
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
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.
— 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%.
CONNECT WITH CAT® MINESTAR EDGE™
Cat MineStar Edge uses cloud-based connectivity through cellular and WiFi connection to collect and manage data at any job site. We offer two levels of connectivity (Basic & Premium*) to meet any customer need using Cat MineStar Edge. Additional functionality will be released in the future.
— Connectivity includes data logging capabilities critical to minimizing safety-related liability.
— Water Solutions data can help ensure customers are meeting regulatory requirements.
— Asset Management options include productivity, water usage, fuel & water tank levels, when & where to apply water, geofencing, asset location and remote management of water distribution.
BASIC CONNECTIVITY: EDGE EQUIPMENT TRACKING
Customer need: "I need to know where my truck is and how much water it's distributing."
Basic Connectivity automates basic data collection, eliminating paper recording by the operator:
— Real-time & historical reporting**
— Truck location and utilization data (starts & stops / routes)
— Fuel and water level
— Whether or not the truck is spraying water
— Water Delivery System utilization (auto vs. manual mode)
PREMIUM CONNECTIVITY: EDGE PRODUCTION RECORDING
Customer need: "I need to know what my operators are doing and how much water I'm using."
Premium Connectivity offers a comprehensive reporting package with data & reports that can help operators improve watering technique/efficiency
— Water usage by truck/fill station
— Volume of water put down over time and area covered
— Rate of water being put down, water delivery system setting by location, truck, and conditions
— Activity breakdown including time & distance (watering, not watering, stopped, etc.)
— Real-time reporting to the operator on water coverage & need (route, heat map, decay map)**1
*Basic connectivity package comes standard on all Cat Water Solutions trucks with a 6-month complimentary service-based offering for better data insights. **Based on equipment connectivity via WiFi or cellular data. 1
Feature to be included in future update.
