Environmental Responsibility

As you progress towards a more sustainable business model, the Cat 777G can help.

Fuel and Emissions
  • There are substantial fuel saving strategies on the 777G
  • Two fuel economy modes can be adjusted to meet your daily production needs
  • For the U.S. and Canada, Tier 4 Final emission controls are available two years ahead of schedule

Fuel and Emissions

  • Operator noise is reduced by 50%
  • Spectator noise levels can be lowered up to 50% with the optional “XQ” package

Component Life
  • Remanufactured parts are an economical and eco-friendly alternative to new
  • Extend tire life by using the TKPH/TMPH feature that calculates tire loading
  • A mud protection package is available to help keep power train components clean
  • Castings and box section frame construction ensure long life
  • A new rear axle housing adds strength and enables axle filtration and lubrication
  • Hydraulic oil filter life is extended to 1,000 hours under normal conditions
  • Autostall enables quick operating temperatures for best performance and life

Component Life

Tier 4 Final
Caterpillar's simple solution is transparent to your operators, controls emissions and increases fuel efficiency.
  • Two engine-mounted diesel oxidation catalyst canisters control particulate matter
  • Our NRS Technology replaces a portion of intake air with exhaust gas to control combustion temperatures and Nox production
  • Precise, extremely fine atomization of fuel under all load conditions

Cutting Your Fuel Costs

The 777G introduces several key fuel conservation features:
  • Auto Neutral Idle - as the 777G idles in a forward gear, the transmission will automatically slip in and out of a neutral state to avoid stalling the torque converter and raising engine rpm.
  • Engine Idle Shutdown - when your G Series truck is in park and idles for more than a preset time, the truck will initiate engine shutdown to conserve fuel. This feature can be time adjusted or turned on or off according to your specific needs.
  • Speed Limiting - while you can continue to gear limit your G Series trucks, Caterpillar offers speed limiting that allows the truck to travel at a more fuel efficient engine speed and gear selection.
  • Transmission Controls - New APECS transmission controls increase fuel efficiency by maintaining momentum and speed on grade.

Economy Modes
  • Standard Economy Mode - G Series can save fuel by adjusting engine power through this newly adjustable economy mode. Adjust the power based on your site, fleet and economic conditions. The power can be reduced from 0.5 to 15 percent.
  • Adaptive Economy Mode - New for G Series - this economy mode requires a baseline for production from you using the Advisor display. As the truck transits the haul cycle, it is constantly evaluating its ability to meet your baseline in a reduced power rating. Where full power is needed, full power is applied, where reduced power works, reduced power is applied. It's fully automatic with no special operation required.

Economy Modes


The 777G will haul your material faster and more efficiently with increases in torque, new transmission controls and higher travel speeds.
  • A 7% increase in torque puts more power to the ground
  • New transmission controls carry more torque through the shifts, producing faster cycle times, most noticeably on grades
  • An increase in travel speed in 7th gear also helps generate faster cycle times

Traction Control
G Series introduces benefits to your fleet when running in wet conditions by introducing a more responsive traction controls system.
  • The system is steering sensitive to determine slip vs. high speed turns
  • The system engages at slower speeds returning traction sooner
  • The system engages sooner in the slip, potentially reducing tire wear
  • The system modulates instantly between the two wheel groups for control
  • Using the hydraulic service brakes facilitates the instant modulation and responsiveness

Traction Control

Long Term Value and Durability

At Caterpillar, we know keeping your trucks running is critical to your business, that's why we use industry leading technology to ensure maximum machine availability and reliability.

Structural Strength
The backbone of the 777G is its frame. Our frames are designed for off-road integrity and are built for more than one life cycle.
  • We strategically apply castings with box section construction to manage off-road stresses
  • A new front frame design increases the approach angle on ramps and grades
  • A new robust rear axle housing supports the truck's performance increases

Brake Performance
Cat trucks provide powerful, fade-resistant braking for your off road applications. G Series introduces new ways to extend brake life.
  • Additional springs in the design reduce wear and increase service life
  • All four corners have wet disc braking standard (front brake lockout no longer an option)
  • Slope holding capability benefits from all wheel parking brake actuation
  • Brake life can be extended by choosing the optional Cat Engine Brake

Updated Cat C32 ACERT
  • For the 777G, the engine and torque converter are producing 7% more usable torque giving the truck new performance levels and quick haul cycles
  • Cat MEUI™ injectors provide high pressure, fine atomization for fuel efficiency and load response
  • Low pressure fuel lines from the tank to the engine simplify service
  • The C32 is carefully balanced with vibration controls that reduce noise and protect against unnecessary harmonics
  • Cooling is provided by either a demand fan (standard for Tier 4 Final machines) or a conventional cooling fan
