As is true with all our models, our goal was to capture as much detail as possible to make the model a true reflection of the machine. From the perforated grill and clear molded headlights to the lip of the dump bed, we’re proud to say it breaks the toy quality stereotype for Caterpillar die cast models. Lifting the dump bed exposes the chromed piston rods on the three stage lift cylinders while allowing a view of the accurately modeled drive shafts, transmission, rear axle, air and hydraulic tanks. Movable steering with operating cylinders, hinged “rock busters”, flexible rubber mud flaps and silver painted exhaust all add to the models realism. Almost hidden inside the model is the highly detailed Caterpillar diesel that powered the truck. The model is finished with appropriate paint and markings for its time.

The 769 marked the entry of Caterpillar into the haul truck market in 1963. It was 25’ long, weighed 52,860 lbs empty and carried a payload of 35 tons for a gross weight of 122,860 lbs. The air-oil suspension system offered better shock absorption than conventional leaf springs and also increased stability and maneuverability. With its superior suspension and braking, the 769 was able to fully utilize the 400 hp provided by its Cat 6 cylinder D343 diesel to give it a top speed of 41 MPH.
