Take me behind the scenes

“Longer life, lower cost—those are the advantages I want."

For generations, equipment owners have trusted the Cat D6 to deliver great performance at the lowest total cost. Today’s D6N carries that legacy forward. With more net horsepower and a standard lock-up clutch torque converter, the new model is up to 10 percent more productive and 10 to 15 percent more fuel efficient than its predecessor. And standard Cat Connect technologies make it easier to grade faster and more accurately–advantages any owner can bank on.

“With built-in blade technology, it’s easy to get to grade faster.”

Operating a dozer is anything but easy. It takes special skills to do the job right. But when those skills are in short supply, technology can close the gap. The D6N comes standard with Cat GRADE with Slope Assist, Cat Stable Blade and Cat GRADE with Slope Indicate, three user-friendly features that help any operator—from the newbie to the expert—do higher quality grading, faster and with less effort. Optional Cat Connect technologies also deliver powerful advantages. Learn about them now.

“High resale value makes it a smart investment.”

Run the numbers and you’ll run Cat equipment. Our dozers not only move more material at a lower total cost over a longer life cycle; they also hold their value over time. So you’ll be more apt to get top dollar when you’re ready to sell or trade. But don’t take our word for it. Check out the data in Equipment Watch’s April 2015 Intelligence report. Cat D6-size dozers (150 hp) are in greater demand than competitive models. Expect a similar advantage for your D6N.
