Caterpillar and Cat dealers now offer Cat Certified Rebuild Upgrade (CCRU) services for older 785 and 789 haul trucks. Cat said its rebuild program for the original series and the B Series models of these trucks incorporates the technological advancements introduced with the C Series to improve operation and performance and reduce engine emissions.

The CCRU provides a full rebuild and certified rebuild warranty along with a Cat upgrade retrofit cab and chassis updates. The results, according to the company, are improved fuel economy, performance and productivity as well as a modernized cab for operator comfort and improved engine emissions equivalent to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 1 standards for sustainable operation.

Cat said the 3512B EUI engine for the 785 and the 3516B EUI engine for the 789 deliver about 5% more power and provide the potential for fuel savings of 3%–4%.

Also, recommended service intervals are extended from 250 to 500 hours.

The upgraded cab includes VIMS 4.0 for monitoring machine health and optimizing production cycles to reduce cost per ton. A full size trainer seat facilitates in-cab training.

The CCRU program for 785 and 789 trucks is available now in the United States, Australia, Indonesia, South Africa, Chile and Russia.
