Cat 797 Transmission Hoist

The Trilift® Cat 797 Transmission Hoist is a specialised Trilift® hoist designed to assist with the removal and installation of Cat 797 transmissions without removing the truck body.

The hoist frame has been designed to allow placement on the truck chassis using the workshop overhead crane. Hoist hydraulic functions include winch raise / lower, winch portal extend / retract and transmission right / left rotate or tilt via two additional  cylinders. Available in two models air powered or diesel powered.

The CAT 797 Transmission Hoist is available in 2 models:

  • CAT 797 Transmission Hoist D - Diesel (Part No. TL12004)

The Trilift® Cat 797 Transmission Hoist comes with an included Trilift® Cat 797 Transmission Hoist Transport Frame (Part No. TL12090) which allows for a Trilift® Cat 797 Transmission Hoist to be moved safely, with a forklift, outside the workshop environment. The Trilift® Cat 797 Transmission Hoist Transport Frame can also be used to transport the Cat 797 Transmission Hoist in two (2) halves, fitting neatly into a 20 foot container, for transport by road or sea.

The Trilift® Cat 797 Transmission Hoist Cradle (Part No. TL12108) allows Cat 797 transmissions to be stored while not in use or transported to and from the Cat 797 Transmission Hoist during the change out process.
