Cat ct660 vocational Truck
A New Vocational Truck Era Begins
The first model in a full line of Cat® Vocational Trucks, the Cat CT660, was recently unveiled at ConExpo in Las Vegas. Empire Truck & Trailer Sales Manager Mike Shannon says he expects to have several CT660s available this summer.
“This truck is already generating a lot of buzz in our market,” Shannon said. “It offers custom solutions for a large variety of job applications—from moving rock and hauling trash to logging and pouring concrete.”
The heavy-duty Day Cab Trucks are offered with a full range of popular engine ratings and torque capability options. They were designed explicitly for customers' demanding applications, and include a Cat CT11 engine with ratings from 330bhp to 390 bhp, a Cat CT13 with ratings from 410 bhp to 475 bhp and, coming in 2012, a Cat CT15 with ratings from 435 bhp to 550 bhp.
The Cat CX31 torque converter style automatic transmission, with three standard locations for Rear Power Take Off drive positions, is an option. A complete line of other OEM vocational transmission options, including Eaton manual and automated manual transmissions, will also be offered.
Owner/driver input and the Cat design team’s understanding of the heavy equipment needs within various industries were both central to the trucks’ design.
“We’re sure owners and drivers will be thrilled with the CT660 – and the full Cat truck line in the coming years – because these are the trucks they told us they wanted,” remarked Caterpillar® Project Manager Gary Blood. “They are everything the Cat brand represents in terms of quality, durability, reliability and driver ergonomics.”
