621G Wheel Tractor Scraper
Power Train - Engine
Proven components are electronically integrated to achieve new levels of performance and efficiency.
Cat C15 Tractor Engine
The C15 with ACERT technology offers dual horsepower capability, high power and torque rise for excellent lugging in tough loading conditions. It is designed for continuous operation over long hours, with high displacement and low engine speeds. Electronic controls enhance altitude capability to 7,500 feet before engine de-rating occurs.
ACERT technology reduces emissions during the combustion process by using advanced technology in the air and fuel systems, in conjunction with integrated electronics. Caterpillar meets emission regulations at the combustion source rather than recycling exhaust gases.
The Cat C15 with ACERT technology is EPA Tier 3 & EU Stage III compliant.
The C15 is a dual horsepower engine, automatically increases horsepower in higher gears, for the haul and return roads when the machine can use it. Scrapers load and dump in lower gears where traction is a concern, so horsepower is limited to help reduce wheel slip and conserve fuel.
Electronic Unit Injection (EUI)
Electronically controlled injection provides complete control over injection timing, duration, rate and pressure under changing conditions over the entire engine operating range. The EUI controlled engine has improved fuel efficiency, more power, decreased smoke & emissions, faster hot & cold starts, better high altitude performance and less noise than mechanical injector engines.
Electronic Control Module (ECM)
ECM maintains an active electronic fault log that aids troubleshooting. Engine speed governing requires no adjustment since it is fully electronic. In addition, ECM improves performance during cold starts as well as compensating for high altitude operations and air filter plugging.
NGMR Engine Cooling System
The NGMR (Next Generation Modular Radiator) is standard for the tractor. It features 9 fins per inch whereas the previous model had a standard radiator of 33 fins per inch.
Power Train - Transmission
Integrated electronics allows the machine to monitor the power train, which reduces stress as well as provides a better ride to the operator.
Electronically controlled Caterpillar planetary power shift transmission with 8 forward and one reverse speed. Gears 1 & 2 operate in converter drive for increased torque capability during cut and fill operations. Gears 3 8 operate in direct-drive for efficiency during the haul. Reverse gear operates in converter drive.
Outboard-mounted, planetary design final drives reduce torque loads on other drivetrain components. Large-capacity, double-row roller bearings and Caterpillar Duo-Cone seals deliver exceptional reliability in the toughest applications.
Brake Performance and Wear Improvements
Redesigned axles on the tractor accommodate wider brake shoes and brake drums, significantly improving brake performance, and improving lining wear and drum wear by as much as 75 percent.
Instant response optimizes machine performance, and advanced diagnostic capabilities maximize machine availability.
The electrical system has been redesigned to utilize three electronic control modules (ECM) on the tractor instead of four.
Easy access diagnostics and more durable components make routine maintenance and servicing simple and fast.
Electronic controls conserve fuel by optimizing the timing setting for varying conditions, such as the load on the engine, engine rpm and temperature.
Product Link Ready
Mounting locations and wiring provided for Product Link, which allows customer to track machine location, hours, and machine health. The system has the capability to automatically issue alerts when the machine is being operated beyond owner defined time and location limits.
Reduced Exhaust Smoke
The ECM determines the optimum fuel/air ratio, then precisely controls fuel during cranking, starting and acceleration to reduce smoke. This system is faster and more efficient than mechanically controlling the governor rack position.
Redesigned for enhanced operator comfort and productivity.
The Cat Comfort Cloth Seat has an adjustable seat and armrests for maximum operator comfort. · Swivels and locks in four positions (0º, 10º, 20º, and 30º) providing the optimum operating position in the cut or on the haul. · Fore/aft and vertical height adjustment to accommodate various sized operators.
Revised Steering Column
Increases legroom a full 3.5 inches, and reduces knee contact.
Standard Air Conditioning / Heater
Gives the operator a comfortable workstation in any kind of weather. Relocated ventilation louvers improve airflow to the operator.
Storage and Amenities
Convenient storage compartments include space for a lunch box and first aid kit. Also features a cup holder and ashtray.
Hood and front shroud width increased to accommodate the low emission engine, the air-to-air aftercooler (ATAAC), ether starting aid, and lights. Hood corners are sloped to maintain the same level of visibility as the E-Series.
Single Lever Implement Control
Simple and easy to operate, the joystick enhances the productivity of operators of all skill levels. Requires less force to control the critical scraper functions and requires less lever travel. 1) Bowl (forward & back) 2) Ejector (side to side) 3) Apron (thumb rocker switch) 4) Transmission Hold 5) Cushion Hitch 6) Trigger (not shown - is on front of joystick) * Standard open bowl does not have a trigger.
Instrument Display Panel
Features a new quad-gauge layout showing engine coolant temp, transmission / torque converter oil temp, fuel level, and system air pressure.
Throttle Lock Controller
Enhances operation during long haul cycles by allowing the operator to maintain a desired engine speed without constant pressure on the throttle.
Simplified Transmission Control
Simplifies gear selection (1st, 2nd, Drive and Reverse) and allows operator-defined top gear control. Relocating the gear control to the rear increases operator legroom.
Superior structural design and construction optimize performance and reliability.
The electronically actuated cushion hitch incorporates a parallelogram-type linkage for exceptional strength with nitrogen accumulators to deliver a smooth ride for enhanced operator comfort. · controlled oil flow dampens rebound oscillation · leveling valve automatically centers piston in cylinder for all loads · steel castings are used extensively to eliminate many welded joints and increase strength · double-kingbolt design withstands high external forces and simplifies installation and removal
Designed for optimum loading, material retention and ejection.
Excellent productivity with a 10% increase in bowl capacity, improved draft arm protection, and better load retention. Low-profile design of the bowl 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 while minimizing carryback material. A spill guard on the ejector helps retain material and keep it from spilling over onto the rear of the scraper.
May be adjusted according to job conditions. The stinger (drop down) position provides good penetration and efficient flow of material into the bowl whereas the level cutting edge is used for finish work or very high impact conditions.
Caterpillar Ground Engaging Tools (G.E.T.)
A wide variety of Ground Engaging Tool (GET) options, such as standard, serrated, and abrasion resistant material (ARM), are available to optimize scraper loading in various materials. Most are reversible to provide long life and reduced operating costs. Contact your Cat Dealer to learn more about the best tools for your applications.
Provides increased horsepower during the haul, which results in faster cycle times.
Well suited to handle a wide variety of material from clay to shot rock.
To achieve maximum productivity, the 621G should be push loaded by a D9R or D10R Track-Type Tractor.
Count on Caterpillar for simplified service and the most productive uptime.
