Overview

The new D6T dozer makes high efficiency dozing as easy as driving your pickup truck. A smooth-shifting, fully automatic four-speed Cat® transmission continuously optimizes the power train for the application. You save fuel and operator effort, without sacrificing durability, power or productivity. Work smarter too, with a full range of Cat Connect GRADE technology features to fit your job site needs.

Performance

  • New, fully automatic four-speed lock-up clutch transmission continuously optimizes gear and engine speed for the application without added operator input.
  • Added gear between first and second, and seamless lock-up clutch engagement, for exceptionally smooth shifting.
  • Maintains power to the ground through load changes for an aggressive feel in the dirt.
  • Up to 2.5 percent more productive – move more material per hour.*
  • Faster implement response*, especially with GRADE technologies.
  • Versatility – pushing power you want for heavy dozing and the fine control you need for finish grading – all in one easy-to-transport machine.
*Compared to previous model.

Efficiency

  • Full-time Auto Shift for significantly better fuel efficiency with less operator effort – without sacrificing performance.
  • Up to 20 percent more fuel efficient* – as much as 30 percent better in lighter load finish grading applications.
  • Sustainable: fuel savings reduces CO2 production by an average of approximately 16.6 metric tons (17.7 tons) per year.
*Compared to previous model.

Cat Connect Technology

  • Automatically maintain established blade mainfall/cross slope with Cat GRADE with Slope Assist (Standard). Finish jobs faster, with better surface quality and significantly less operator effort. No additional hardware required.
  • Whether production dozing or finish grading, take on 3D design plans more efficiently with Cat GRADE with 3D (Optional). Factory integrated grade control system features cab roof-mounted GNSS antennas to eliminate blade masts and cables. Includes AutoCarry™ to further boost productivity.
  • Versatile, scalable Cat AccuGrade™ (Optional) is a dealer-installed grade control system. Choice of Laser, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) or Universal Total Station (UTS) so you get the right level of accuracy to match your job requirements.
  • Factory equip your dozer for easy installation of an AccuGrade system with the AccuGrade Ready Option (ARO) (Optional).
  • Manage your fleet more effectively and profitably with Product Link™/VisionLink® remote monitoring.

Ease of Operation

  • Change ground speeds easily – in large (half gear) or small (one-tenth gear) increments – with detented thumb roller.
  • New Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) places machine data, settings menus, grade control data and more conveniently in front of the operator.
  • Display enables coded start and operator profiles.
  • Improved blade feedback with updated implement joystick.
  • More ground clearance and better penetration with new high-lift, multi-shank ripper.
