Water Trucks

Cat Water Truck 785 C/D

Cat 785 Water Trucks are available in models C or D. The Cat Water Delivery System (WDS) is an efficient way for mining operations to control dust on haul roads. This automated system, which is a fully-integrated Cat design, controls the amount of water and spray patterns to prevent the hazards common with overwatering. The system employs a self-contained hydraulic system that controls spray patterns and allows for consistent water coverage regardless of engine RPM. The system is capable of spraying up to 1,200 gal (3 785 L) per minute at speeds ranging from 3 to 25 mph (5 to 40 kph).
