The Cat 730 with a 17.5 m ³ (23 yd ³ )/28 tonnes (31 tons) capacity, offers demonstrated reliability and durability, high performance and productivity and a new world-class cab to improve operator comfort and ease of operation. Updating the successful 730C2 to include the new cab design makes the 730 a more attractive proposition for our customers. Class leading levels of performance and new features such as Advanced Automatic Traction Control (AATC) and Assisted Hoisting Control create operator comfort, making a productive machine all day long while retaining all axle enclosed wet brakes and Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Strategy (APECS).
The net power advertised is the power available at the flywheel when the engine is equipped with alternator, air cleaner, muffler and fan at minimum speed.
The 730 meets Tier 4 Final and Stage V emission standards.
The power ratings apply at rated speed of 1,800 rpm when tested under the conditions for the specified standard.
The references to Tier 4 Final/Stage V include U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage V, Japan 2014 (Tier 4 Final), and Korea Tier 4 Final emission standards.
Net power when the fan is at maximum speed is 254 kW (341 hp) per the SAE reference conditions.
DEF used in Cat SCR systems must meet the requirements outlined in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 22241-1. ISO 22241-1 requirements are met by many brands of DEF, including those that carry the AdBlue or API certifications.
An optimum system match gives you a major productivity advantage. The 730 is an excellent match for the Cat 349F and 336F Hydraulic Excavators; and Cat 972M, 966M, 962M and 950M Wheel Loaders. Having matched loading and hauling tools results in increased production and lower system costs per unit of volume moved.
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.
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.
