730

Overview

The Cat 730 with a 17.5 m3 (23 yd3)/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).

EmissionsThe 730 meets either Tier 2/Stage II or Tier 3/Stage IIIA equivalent emission standards.
Note (1)The power ratings apply at rated speed of 1,800 rpm when tested under the conditions for the specified standard.
Note (2)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.
Note (3)Net power when the fan is at maximum speed is 254 kW (341 hp) per the SAE reference conditions.
Note (1)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.
Note (2)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.
