Caterpillar @ Bauma 2019: Rewrite the Rules

Introducing the Most New Cat® Products Ever at Bauma Munich

Caterpillar Exhibit Showcasing 64 Machines, 20 of Them New Introductions

Caterpillar and its German dealer Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH will exhibit a wide range of equipment, technology and services at bauma Munich, April 8-14, 2019.

The theme of the Caterpillar exhibit will be “Rewrite the Rules,” with displays emphasizing the renewed efficiencies and profitability that equipment users can expect when they partner with Caterpillar — from a wide choice of machine options, to technologies that deliver fuel efficiency, to connectivity that helps them manage their machines.

Caterpillar will display 64 machines, 20 of them new introductions — the most new products Caterpillar has ever introduced at bauma Munich. Engines, generator sets, work tools and technologies will be displayed alongside heavy equipment for a variety of industries.

For the mining industry, Caterpillar will display off-highway trucks, articulated trucks, dozers and loaders.

The Cat®  777G, a 100-ton (90-tonne) hauler with a Cat C32 engine rated at 945 net horsepower (704 kW), meets U.S. Tier 2 equivalent emissions. The new truck features a refined cab that positions the operator seat on the left side, along with a new console with an integrated hoist and shift lever. The new 777G offers a choice of bodies for different applications.

Also on display will be the 988K XE, the company's first diesel/electric-drive loader. The 988K XE employs a durable switched-reluctance drive motor, generator, and inverter, coupled with a mechanical gear box and axles — lifting fuel efficiency and productivity to new levels.

Cat articulated trucks will be represented at bauma Munich by the completely redesigned 730, weighing 22 percent less than its predecessor, the 730C, yet retaining 98 percent of its predecessor's capacity. The new truck features automatic control of traction, dumping, and retarding, as well as the Caterpillar Stability Assist system.

For underground miners, Caterpillar will display the new R1700 loader, which handles payloads of 16.5 tons (15 tonnes) — 20 percent more than its predecessor
