793 Mining Truck

The Cat® 793 Mining Truck is a popular industry workhorse that is the ideal choice for a wide variety of applications. It delivers high availability and hauls more every load, every cycle and every shift when compared to competitive trucks in its size class — burning less fuel in the process. Next generation features take the 793 to a new level. The operator sits in a state-of-the-art environment designed for efficiency and equipped with features that increase comfort, automate functions, provide real-time information and boost confidence. The 793 also delivers significant improvements in serviceability and reliability, enhanced connectivity and easier technology integration — including autonomous haulage. These improvements — and more — take an already proven truck to the next level of productivity.
