The Cat 740 GC with a 22.7 m³ (29.7 yd³)/36.3 tonne (40 ton) capacity, offers reliability, durability and efficient performance, including the latest, world-class operator’s station found on other Cat Articulated Trucks. The 740 GC offers a highly efficient value proposition within the 40 ton AT size class. Automated, assisted and intuitive controls bring Safety and Ease of Operation to the forefront – helping reduce operator workload and training. Ideally matched to popular loading tools, the 740 GC is a productive machine in any fleet.
Net power when the fan is at maximum speed is 327 kW (439 hp) per the SAE reference conditions.
The C15 engine meets Tier 4 Final and Stage V emission standards.
DEF used in Cat SCR systems must meet the requirements outlined in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard ISO 22241-1. Requirements are met by many brands of DEF, including those that carry the AdBlue or API certifications.

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.
Peak Engine Torque Gross (SAE J1995)
The references to Tier 4 Final/Stage V include U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage V, Japan 2014 (Tier 4 Final), as well as Korea Tier 4 Final emission standards.

Gross Power - SAE J1995
Net Power - ISO 14396
The power ratings apply at rated speed of 1,700 rpm when tested under the conditions for the specified standard.
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.
An optimum system match gives you a major productivity advantage. The 740 GC is an excellent match for the Cat 374F and 352F Hydraulic Excavators; and Cat 972M, 966M, and 962M Wheel Loaders. Having matched loading and hauling tools results in increased production and lower system costs per unit of volume moved.
