    I had to go out to the mine where this big CAT is working today to take some pictrures. Wonder how much gas this baby would use. Would jack up the cost per hour for this truck.

    Probally nothing bigger than a Snobear or a snow sport or you would have to tighten up the torsion bars to much.You wouldn't want to do that it might make it ride rough:D

    That's only a 777 or 785 (judging by the body shape). which would be one of the babies, you should see the 797, that's a big dog! Payloads of about 380-400 tons!

    Judging by the door, I would say its a 785.

    Its a 785

    Its a 785 with a 150 ton payload. They are running these babies at a gold mine out here and I was asked to verify serial numbers for an equipment lease on 11 of the 40 they have running 24 x 7.

    Wouldn't use any gas. Fuel. :D

    Sorry just had to. Nice picture though, any pics of the excavators used to load them up?
    Our biggest truck @ work is a 50 ton cat. Underground mining so drift size limits equipment.
