Optimal Loader/Truck Pass Matching

Note An optimum system match gives you a major productivity advantage. The 735 is an excellent match for the Cat 349F and 336F Hydraulic Excavators; and Cat 972M, 966M, 962M and 950M Wheel Loaders. Having matched loading and hauling tools results in increased production and lower system costs per unit of volume moved. An optimum system match gives you a major productivity advantage.
