Power Train - Engine

Technology
  • U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage V emissions compliant
  • Controlled combustion using proven systems, components
  • Cross flow cylinder heads for clean air, better circulation
  • Delivers fuel at the right time and pressure
  • Rate shaping manages emissions in the combustion cycle
Cat C18 Engine - Tractor
  • Excellent power density, load response across the curve
  • High compression ratio improves cold start and performance
  • MEUI fuel injection matches quantity and timing to load
  • Matched to the high efficiency torque converter and electronically controlled power shift transmission, it has the torque rise to power through tough material and provide years of dependable service
Cat C15 Engine - Scraper

Engine Speed Lock

Allows the operator to maintain a given engine speed without using the accelerator pedal.

Power Train - Transmission

Planetary Powershift Transmission Is Electronically Controlled
  • Tractor and Scraper gears 1-2 - converter drive for increased torque, tractor and scrapers gears 3-8 - direct-drive for drive train efficiency.
  • Transmission Hold maintains converter drive for max rimpull, or holds current gear for best control
  • Programmable Top Gear manually sets top gear available (3rd-8th) to match conditions or speed
  • Neutral Coast Inhibitor prevents power train overspeeding by synchronizing engine rpm, pump lubrication and drive train speed, preventing under-lubrication
  • Engine compression brakes reduces service brake wear and enhances machine control
Final Drives
  • Outboard-mounted, planetary design reduces torque loads within the power train
  • Double-row roller bearings and Duo-Cone™ seals assure reliability
  • Differential Lock improves traction in slippery conditions, reducing tire wear
Brake Performance
  • Wide brake shoes and brake drums improve brake performance and reduce brake and drum wear
  • Separate front and rear circuits. Secondary brakes engage automatically if service pressure drops
  • Parking Brake features a spring-applied, hydraulic pressure released mechanism that operates the service brakes
Torque Converter

Increases rimpull and shortens load times, and eliminates engine stall to efficiently deliver power to the ground and move more dirt.

Electronic Controls

Benefits of Electronic Control Modules (ECMs)

ECMs (3 on the tractor, 2 on rear-powered scrapers) offer:

  • Better fuel economy by optimizing engine settings
  • Greater reliability with operator warnings if problems arise
  • Combining tractor and rear powered-scraper monitoring systems, easy access diagnostics, more durable components improves serviceability
  • Reduced exhaust smoke by optimizing the fuel/air ratio during cranking, starting and acceleration
  • Air filter restriction indicator alerts operator if filter exceeds allowable limit
  • Periodically raises engine rpm during low idle to keep the batteries fully charged
Combined Electronic Monitoring System (EMS III)

Monitors both the tractor and scraper status on the 657G; access fault codes from one location. The tractor and powered scraper use the same controller for parts commonality and easier servicing.

Product Link Ready

This wireless system lets the customer track location, service meter hours and machine health information. Can also issue alerts if the machine is operated beyond owner defined time and location limits.

Easy Access Diagnostics Means Faster Problem Solving

Diagnostic codes, via the Electronic Technician (Cat ET), and a radio call can often let the service technician know which tools, manuals, and possibly even replacement parts to bring.

Cushion Hitch

Cushion Hitch

The electronically actuated cushion hitch has a parallelogram-type linkage for exceptional strength. Vertically mounted hydraulic cylinder transfers road shocks to nitrogen accumulators. Nitrogen accumulator absorbs and dampens road shocks, thus preventing these loads from being transmitted to the operator.

  • controlled oil flow dampens rebound oscillation
  • leveling valve applies pressure via an orifice to automatically center piston in the load cylinder
  • steel castings are used to eliminate many welded joints and increase strength
  • double-kingbolt design withstands high external forces and simplifies installation and removal
Lockout Switch

An operator-selectable lockout switch, located on the joystick, locks the cushion hitch down for improved cutting edge control when loading or dumping.

Scraper Bowl

Bowl Design

Excellent productivity, improved draft arm protection, and better load retention. Low profile design offers less resistance to incoming materials, while cellular construction adds strength and dent resistance to bowl sides and floor.

Bulldozer Ejection System

Combines constant spreading control with minimum carryback.

Overflow Guard

An available overflow guard on the scraper bowl helps retain material, and limits spills onto the rear of the scraper.

Push-Loading

Where material types include rocky/abrasive material, or become traction-limited, push loading a 657G with a Cat D10 or D11 will optimize tire wear and productivity.

Cutting Edges and Cat Ground Engaging Tools (GET)

May be adjusted according to job conditions. Smooth and serrated cutting edges with available tip options can be applied to match job site conditions. For most efficient loading, use the thinnest cutting edge that provides satisfactory wear life and impact resistance.

Tandem Engines

Tandem engine machines improve cycle times on grades and in slippery underfoot conditions. Also improves the machine's loading characteristics in tough materials like clay.

Material Appetite

Well suited to handle a wide variety of material from clay to shot rock.

Coal Bowl

Bowl Capacity

High-capacity bowls, built longer and taller than earth-moving bowls, allow the 657G to achieve rated load in light weight coal.

Wheel Tractor-Scraper Benefits
  • High speed, self-loading productivity for stockpile and feeder management
  • Coal pile compaction
  • Bowl capacity 56 m³ (73 yd³) heaped
  • All-wheel drive allows the machine to work in poor underfoot conditions and operate on piles of loose coal

Push-Pull

Combined Power Increases Production

Push-pull applies the power of four engines to a single cutting edge. The benefit is realized in tough-to-load material and fast loading of both machines. Push-pull applications have the potential to produce the lowest cost per unit volume, and a high rate of production.

Hydraulically Actuated Bail

The push-pull arrangement uses a hydraulically actuated bail and cushioned plate to push, and a hook that is attached to the rear of the scraper to pull.

Serviceability

Engine Service Points
  • Maintenance/service points grouped on the right side
  • Grouping fluid fill and check points, filters and sampling ports shortens maintenance times
  • Electronic Monitoring System (EMS) provides real-time information to the operator of system warnings
  • Electronic Technician (Cat ET) displays real-time system data to better inform the service technician
Implement Valve Relocation

The implement valve is relocated from the tractor to the top of the scraper draft tube, reducing the number of hoses and tubes crossing over the gooseneck. This reduces potential leak points and improves service access.

Scraper Electrical Harness and One Piece Power Block

The flexible ribbon wiring harness oscillates with the machine, and polyurethane boots offer better protection against the elements. The jumpstart receptacle and disconnect switch are integrated into a one-piece power block, with a lockable cover, for better electrical integrity and serviceability.

Electro-Hydraulic Implement Control Simplifies Serviceability

Removing the cab pilot valve and associated lines improves reliability and reduces noise. The high efficiency electro-hydraulic pilot oil filter provides cleaner oil for the pilot system.
