The second version of the 769, the 769B, featured a 15hp boost, for an engine output totaling 415hp. Another major upgrade was the new V-bottom body which provided a larger target area than the “A Model” and lowered the truck’s center of gravity, increasing vehicle stability.
Oil cooled disc brakes provided a larger surface area with better stopping power, less fade and longer parts life than drum brakes. Pneumatic-oil suspension provided a smooth and stable ride, with the redesigned steering system increasing reliability and the operator’s “feel” of the road. An all new cab design further improved operator access, safety, convenience and comfort.
Our 1:48 scale, die-cast model of the Caterpillar 769B is a tribute to this legendary machine. As is true with all our models, our goal was to capture as much detail as possible to make the model a true reflection of the machine. Lifting the dump bed exposes the chromed piston rods on the three stage lift cylinders while allowing a view of the accurately modeled drive shafts, transmission, rear axle, air and hydraulic tanks.
Comes with a serial numbered certificate of authenticity that includes actual machine specifications.
