New features of the 725C CAT ADT
The new CAT comes built with a number of notable new features that only serve to add to the truck’s already impressive track record.

CAT 725C Engine and Transmission
The vehicle’s engine is amazing. This is without a doubt an evolutionary system with breakthrough technology that has been built on an already reliable CAT dump truck system. The truck comes built with a CAT Clean Emissions Module, or CEM in short. In a nutshell this is an exhaust system consisting of a diesel particulate filter, a selective catalytic reduction catalyst and a control system.
Together this entire system ensures that this articulated dump truck delivers a lot of power and performance while keeping its emission as low as possible using passive and active regeneration and making the system very durable. This added durability ensures that you will have a truck that will not need to be serviced as regularly as other trucks in its category.
The engine also comes built with a diesel particulate filter regeneration system. This system connects the Diesel Particulate Filter to the CAT Regeneration System. Once these two systems are connected the end result is the trapping and removal of particulates and ash.
Another important feature of the CAT ADT that has been added is the modes of regeneration function. If you choose the automatic option with these modes, regeneration will start without the driver having to engage the regeneration function.
With the manual option on the other hand, regeneration will be initiated by simply pressing down the regeneration switch for about five seconds. This simple act will turn the regeneration machine on and start the regeneration process.
When it comes to the transmission of this CAT dump truck, the electronic transmission system is built to deliver a smooth shifting high acceleration system capable of delivering the high productivity. A few features of note have been built into the transmission system.
These CAT 725C features include:
– a critical gearshift that allows the operator to maintain the truck’s ground speed during shifts on grades, and
– a transmission that automatically modifies its shift points to best suit the conditions in which the truck is operating in.
The transmission retarder comes with high power density design. Even though the retarder is compact in its size, the unit can fill up very quickly with oil which in turn makes the unit provide more retarding power and faster responding times.
CAT 725C Cab Interior
The cab of the CAT 725C articulated dump truck offers comfort and space. The spacious two person cab provides enough comfort and working space for the driver and the passenger to operate the truck as efficiently as possible. The seats have also been enhanced with an air suspension that lets you adjust the seat to make it optimal for your driving position.
You will find the dashboard’s layout very easy to use and simple to operate. The dashboard’s controls are all located in a central position with LED illumination to make the controls visible during all times of the day.
Structure, serviceability, safety and specifications
Structurally, the CAT articulated dump truck is built to be a very reliable vehicle. The front and rear frame have been built to ensure that the truck has a very low weight while ensuring that the truck has a very long service life. The suspension is strong enough to ensure that it can absorb as much impact as possible.
