As with all CCM precision scale die-cast model, the detail level on this model is exemplary. On the first layer this includes a working dump body with multi-stage lift cylinders, a fully-represented engine and drivetrain and pivoting steering complete with hydraulic cylinders. At the next level, and not so apparent, are a full array of fine-scale details such as wheel chocks, fire bottles, rock guards and the tread plate on all step surfaces. An accurately detailed operator’s cab, properly scaled tires and wheels, lights, mirrors, steps and grab rails all contribute to the realism – especially when this is all combined with Cat approved paint and markings. At a size of 8 ¾” X 5” X 4 3/8” the mud flaps and fuel and hydraulic tanks are easy to see but you’ll have to look close to find the tow hooks, tow pin and the wiper on the windshield.
“Built For It™” for the Cat 777G means full out, off-highway production work in mines, quarries and large earth moving projects. It tips the scales at 363,000 lbs. but with its 12 cylinder, Cat C32 ACERT™ diesel engine delivering 1,025 HP & 3,899 ft-lb torque @ 1,200 RPM, it can haul up to 118 tons at more than 40 mph.
Design features on this truck, such as carrying material low and centered for stability and load retention in the dual slope, V-bottom dump body, represent a new era for this size of off highway truck. In addition, the 777G features wet disc braking on all four corners, seven-speed planetary power-shift transmission and a sound-suppressed cab full of features to add to the comfort and productivity of the driver. A combination of 4 cameras and 4 radars allow visual or audible warning of people or objects too close for safe operation of the machine.
