730 EJ

The Cat® 730 EJ features a world-class cab design, re-engineered using global operator feedback to advance comfort and ease of operation. Enhancements include new controls, transmission-protection features, hoist-assist system, advanced automatic traction control system, stability-assist machine rollover warning system, and a fuel saving ECO mode.The Cat 730 EJ with a 16.9 m³ (22.1 yd³)/27.1 tonnes (30 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.<br>Updating the successful 730C2 EJ to include the new cab design makes the 730 EJ a more attractive proposition for our customers. Class leading levels of performance and new features such as Advanced Automatic Traction Control (AATC) and Assisted Ejecting Control create operator comfort, making a productive machine all day long. The machines retain all axle enclosed wet brakes and Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Strategy (APECS).

Engine

Emissions:
The 730 EJ meets Tier 4 Final and Stage V emission standards.
Note (4):
Net power when the fan is at maximum speed is 274 kW (367 hp) per the SAE reference conditions.
Note (3):
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 (2):
The power ratings apply at rated speed of 1,800 rpm when tested under the conditions for the specified standard.

Sound Levels

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.
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.

Engine

Note (1):
The references to Tier 4 Final/Stage V include U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage V, Japan 2014 (Tier 4 Final), and Korea Tier 4 Final emission standards.
Note (5):
DEF used in Cat SCR systems must meet the requirements outlined in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 22241-1. ISO 22241-1 requirements are met by many brands of DEF, including those that carry the AdBlue or API certifications.

Optimal Loader/Truck Pass Matching

Note:
An optimum system match gives you a major productivity advantage. The 730 EJ is an excellent match for the Cat 349F and 336F Hydraulic Excavators; and Cat 972M, 966M, 962M and 950M Wheel Loaders. Having matched loading and hauling tools results in increased production and lower system costs per unit of volume moved.
