Cat Payload for Articulated Trucks

Cat Payload for Articulated Trucks

Monitor your payload easily with Cat® Production Measurement our payload data system for articulated trucks utilized to help operators optimize hauling potential & maximize productivity.


Cat® Production Measurement provides real-time payload weighing to help operators optimize hauling potential and maximize productivity. Automated tracking helps site managers monitor material movement and efficiency metrics to manage production, improve jobsite efficiency, and lower costs.

Increase Productivity

  • Increase productivity – real-time payload weighing information and instant feedback keeps haul trucks fully loaded, moving, and reaching maximized production levels – and the fleet working at optimum potential.
  • Work confidently, without estimation – in-cab monitor displays payload weight and status and external lights automatically signal loader operator when target payload is achieved.
  • Enhance hauling capability – load trucks to capacity without overloading; move more material aligning to machine capability and performance.

Lower Costs

  • Improve jobsite efficiency, lower costs – optimize machine use; reduce over- and under-loading, component wear, and cycles; save time, labor, fuel, and costs.

Boost Accuracy

  • Advanced weighing features and easy-to-view display and payload status indicators assist with payload accuracy and speed the loading cycle.
  • Real-time weighing – displays immediate load weights in the cab and continuous payload weight during travel.
  • Carry-back compensation – calculates material not dumped with last weighed load for accurate production values.
  • Empty weight calibration – allows the operator to re-zero empty weight of truck and compensate for drifting.
  • Color display – integrated in-cab display provides clear view of payload data and unobstructed view of work area.
  • Resettable trip and materials totals – tracks production by operator, job-site, and material type.
  • External payload lights – green and red lights signal real-time load status to loader operator: empty, partial, last pass, and fully loaded. Visible on all four corners of the cab.
