Cat® Payload Technology

What can payload do for me?

With its onboard weighing systems and real-time feedback in the cab, Cat® Payload does more than simply eliminate trips to the weighing scale. It also helps you boost productivity, drive down costs, increase operator efficiency and run a safer jobsite. Here’s how:

  • On-the-Go Load Weighing helps operators hit exact loading targets every time, increasing productivity and reducing cycle times. Eliminating overloading reduces excessive wear, expensive tire damage and dangerous material spills. Eliminating underloading means you can move more in fewer loads, saving time and fuel.

  • In-Cab Displays let operators easily see bucket and truck load weights, track load counts and material movement, and monitor productivity and fuel efficiency in real time. On hauling tools, payload lamps and external scoreboard displays provide load status to the loader operator. It all increases accuracy to reduce costly errors and rework.

  • Comprehensive Reporting lets you track key performance indicators like daily production tonnage, truck load counts, tons/hour, tons/fuel burned and more, then make improvements to boost productivity and profits.
