Optimal Loader/Truck Pass Matching
Note An optimum system match gives you a major productivity advantage. The 740 GC is an excellent match for the Cat 374F and 352F Hydraulic Excavators; and Cat 972M, 966M, and 962M Wheel Loaders. Having matched loading and hauling tools results in increased production and lower system costs per unit of volume moved.
Wheel Loader: 966M - Passes 4u20135
Hydraulic Excavator: 352F - Passes 5u20136
Wheel Loader: 972M - Passes 3
Body Plate Thickness
Base Plate 13 mm (0.51 in)
Sound Levels
Note (2) Hearing protection may be needed when operating with an open operator station and cab (when not properly maintained or doors/windows open) for extended periods or in noisy environments.
Optimal Loader/Truck Pass Matching
Wheel Loader: 962M - Passes 5
Hydraulic Excavator: 374F - Passes 3u20134
Sound Levels
Note (1) The operator sound exposure Leq (equivalent sound pressure level) measured according to the work cycle procedures specified in ANSI/SAE J1166 OCT98 is 72 dB(A), for the cab offered by Caterpillar, when properly installed and maintained and tested with the doors and windows closed.
