CAT Ag Truck

Articulated Truck Rental Automatic Features

Cat articulated trucks improve performance and ease of use through automatic features such as:

  • Advanced Automatic Traction Control (AATC): AATC automates the engagement of the inter- and cross-axle differential locks for maximum traction. It automatically disengages the clutches during the right ground conditions for better steering efficiency.
  • Automatic Retarder Control (ARC): Automatic modes makes using the truck’s retarder easier with machine monitoring. ARC reduces the risk of engine overspeeding for smoother operation.
  • Assisted dumping: Models that have an assisted dumping system manage dumping with a raise/lower switch. The truck automatically applies the service brakes and switches the transmission to neutral when you raise the body.
  • Hill Assist and waiting brake: These features use the service brakes to make operation safer and more convenient. Hill Assist reduces the risk of “roll-back” on grades, and the waiting brake activates the service brakes during neutral gear.

Operator-Friendly Articulated Trucks for Rent

With operator-designed cabs, Cat articulated trucks improve safety and comfort for the people using them. Operator features include:

  • Combined hoist/transmission lever: Exclusive to Cat articulated trucks, the combined hoist/transmission lever streamlines operation. Manage your tipping job with fewer interactions.
  • Dashboard with touchscreen display: The updated dashboard includes LED lights for easy operation in any job condition. It features a touchscreen display that provides necessary equipment information in a single interface.
  • Spacious cab with air suspension seat: An open, large cab has enough room for two seats — one for an operator, and another for a trainee. The operator’s air suspension seat offers a wide range of adjustment options for comfort and visibility.

Leading Suspension and Braking Technology

Select models feature three axles with oscillating A-frames and lateral tie rods. This design controls sideways movement and provides stability on rough terrain. Increase performance with these suspension and braking features:

  • Smooth front suspension: Large-bore, low-pressure cylinders provide smooth operation and assist in off-road applications.
  • Stable rear suspension: The rear suspension consists of a walking beam and long-life rear suspension mounts for better stability and load retention.
  • All axle enclosed wet brakes: An enclosed design protects brakes from contaminants for longer system life.

Reasons to Rent an Articulated Truck

Equipment rentals provide a variety of advantages over purchases in specific situations. Renting your articulated truck instead of buying it becomes a smart choice when you:

  • Have a job site far away from your business: Transportation costs add up when you have more equipment to move. Renting equipment close to your job site can save you money on gas and maintenance.
  • Plan to use the truck for a one-off job: If you don’t use articulated trucks for many jobs, a rental makes sense when you suddenly need one. Rental companies such as NMC The Cat Rental Store also offer training for unfamiliar equipment.
  • Need to maximize fleet management: When you need to get the most out of your storage, a rental lets you save room for essential equipment. Choosing to rent an articulated truck also saves you money on regular maintenance costs that you can spend on your main fleet.
