Improves Safety

  • The Cat® Water Delivery System improves safety by providing variable water flow based on truck speed, preventing the hazards common with over-watering.
  • With automated water delivery, the operator can remain focused on driving and traffic.
  • Remote tank fill control allows the operator to stay in the cab during refilling, which reduces slip hazards.
  • When the water tank is full, the auto shut-off feature prevents over-filling and also results in increased component life.
  • The system features automatic start and stop, based on truck speed, which eliminates over-watering at road intersections to improve safety for all vehicles on site.

Saves Fuel

  • Caterpillar tests show that the Cat® Water Delivery System's efficient pump control reduces fuel consumption by an average of 14%.
