Productivity

  • Added productivity and up to 10 percent fuel savings, delivering up to 18 percent better dozing efficiency.(1)
  • Move up to 13 percent more material per pass with the largest standard blade in the size class (10.3 m3).
  • Keep working, even in high temperatures, with increased cooling capability.(1) Push in second gear for more dozing productivity.
  • Save fuel with a hydraulic demand fan that reduces speed in cooler conditions. Optional reversing capability for high debris conditions.
  • Auto Shift automatically down shifts to the most efficient gear based on load, adding to overall fuel savings.
(1) Compared to previous model D8R.

Performance

  • Cat C15 ACERT™ engine delivers more horsepower,(1) with more than a decade of proven reliability in a wide range of working conditions.
  • More efficient power train, hydraulic fan and new radiator increase ambient capability up to 23 percent.(1)
  • Purpose-built Desert Arrangement includes added cooling performance and more protection for working in extremely sandy or abrasive conditions.
  • Optional cab-mounted air conditioning condenser supports better system performance, improved engine cooling and serviceability.
  • Easier maintenance access with wider engine panel doors and optional bottom guard access panels.
(1) Compared to previous model D8R.

Ease of Operation

  • Optional electro-hydraulic controls reduce operator effort, improve precision and response, and enable Cat Connect GRADE technologies.
  • New optional Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)(2) places machine data, settings menus, grade control data and more conveniently in front of the operator.
  • LCD display is rear-camera-ready for added safety.

Cat Connect Technologies

  • Cat Slope Indicate (Standard – with electro-hydraulic controls) displays real-time machine cross-slope and fore/aft orientation on the primary monitor, helping operators work more accurately on slopes.
  • Automatically maintain established blade slope with Cat GRADE with Slope Assist (Optional – requires electro-hydraulic controls). Finish jobs faster, with better surface quality and significantly less operator effort. No additional hardware required.
  • Versatile, scalable Cat AccuGrade™ (Optional – requires electro-hydraulic controls) 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.
  • Remote monitoring with Product Link™/VisionLink® helps you manage your fleet more effectively and profitably.(2)
