The Cat 793F has been a reliable performer on mine sites for decades, and today's 793s are achieving more than ever.
The Cat 793F has been improved with longer-life components, extended service intervals and easier maintenance to deliver mechanical availability that is consistently greater than 90%. And today's 793F is built on our most durable 231-tonne frame ever built, backed by unprecedented levels of virtual and in-iron validation as well as over 6,000,000 hours in operation.
The 793's mild steel frame provides flexibility, durability and resistance to impact loads. Castings are used in high-stress areas and the integral 4-post ROPS cab provides increased strength for operator protection.
Cat trucks are designed to last over 100,000 hours, and many are going well beyond that. The frame, powertrain, engine and components are built to be rebuilt — using new, remanufactured or rebuilt parts and components — so you can take advantage of multiple lives of like-new performance at a fraction-of-new price.
The individual components, software, systems and engine that go inside a Cat 793F have different purposes, but they have one very important thing in common: They are all manufactured by Caterpillar and supported by the Hastings Deering network. This integration ensures that the entire truck, from tires to transmissions, engines to electronics, can be fully optimised to deliver the lowest cost per tonne.
The 793F is 6% faster than competitive trucks and delivers optimal speed on steep grades, poor underfoot conditions and haul roads with high rolling resistance. Its C175-16 diesel engine's 16-cylinder, four-stroke design uses long, effective power strokes for optimum efficiency. The 20% net torque rise provides unequaled lugging force during acceleration. Torque rise effectively matches transmission shift points for maximum efficiency and fast cycle times.
Additionally, when you equip your 793F with a Cat High Performance (HP) body, you'll experience the benefits of a higher payload thanks to a weight reduction of 2.0-5.0 tonnes or more. The HP body features a lightweight, simplified and durable design that provides complete front machine coverage and extended overhead protection. The HP body features robust top rail geometry with internal stiffeners and a high-visibility load placement indicator. Patented floating bolsters and spring plates improve overall durability by avoiding welds in high stress areas. In addition, the body requires only minimal liner coverage due to thicker and harder base plates. Curved front / side transitions minimize carryback.
Governments and regulatory agencies mandate that you establish and follow environmentally sound policies and practices as you meet the demand for mined materials. Caterpillar is focused on doing their part to make sure their trucks help you meet those regulations. They have designed the 793F to use less fuel, which reduces engine emissions and carbon footprint, and there is zero fuel burn during retarding.
And no one knows more about how to get the most from your 793F than Hastings Deering. This one-of-a-kind, on-the-ground support network delivers expert service, integrated solutions, after-sales support, fast and efficient parts fulfilment, world-class rebuild and remanufacturing capabilities, and more. With 23 locations across their network, Hastings Deering are fully embedded in and committed to the regions and customers it serves.
