The AD63 underground truck is designed for high production, lower costs and increased efficiency. It’s built tough to stand up to the harsh conditions of your site, and features a number of improvements over its predecessor, including a 5% greater payload and more torque.
A world-class cab keeps operators safe and comfortable all shift long, and new enhancements help ensure the safety of everyone working in, on or around the machine. It’s powered by a Cat C27 engine that meets EU Stage V Emissions Standards for cleaner performance, as well as reduced ventilation costs. And its rugged construction and simplified maintenance make for longer life and lower operating costs, so you can get the most out of your investment.
The Truck Payload Measurement System automatically records load cycle information when the load is dumped. It gives operators real-time loading information and can transmit and store data through Product Link™ Elite for retrieval.
Data is also stored in the system's memory and can be downloaded directly through a service port. It also includes two payload score card displays so loader operators can easily track truck payloads during loading.
The Operator Present System helps protect the machine and operator from uncontrolled movements. The system automatically engages the parking brake, neutralizes the steering implement and transmission control and shuts down the engine if the operator fails to apply the park brake before exiting the cab. The engine shutdown configuration can be changed by your Cat dealer using Cat Electronic Technician.
Product Link™ Elite boosts connectivity and increases the availability of data provided by the machine. The onboard hardware collects and transmits data to local or cloud-hosted applications like MineStar™ Health Office, Health Equipment Insights, Equipment Care Advisor or Vision Link.
This system opens the door for industry-leading equipment health and condition monitoring services from Caterpillar and your Cat dealer.
