Overview

Delivering Optimized Cost Per Ton

The Cat® 796 AC electric drive truck offers more flexibility than any other truck in its size class — delivering optimized performance and better productivity. Built on a proven truck architecture and high strength structures, the 796 AC delivers a nominal target payload of up to 327 tonnes (360 tons) regardless of attachments. Add in a proven drive system with industry-leading serviceability, and the 796 AC mining truck delivers a hauling solution you can depend on — resulting in high reliability, high availability, and low lifecycle costs. By hauling more every load, every cycle and every shift, it creates a low-cost-per-ton hauling operation that delivers a better bottom line.

Benefits

Payload Without Compromise

Nominal rated payload delivered for all truck configurations — including attachments

Up to 8% Increased Torque on Demand

Unlock maximum drivetrain capability with Cat TorqueBoost technology

Increased Tire Life and TKPH

327-ton (360-ton) payload matched with 59/80 R63 tires lowers costs and improves tire performance
