NEXT GENERATION PERFORMANCE

  • Harness added weight and horsepower to take on a wide range of dozing and grading tasks.
  • Improved steering, tighter turning radius, quicker turns at the end of each pass help you finish jobs faster.
  • Fully automatic 3-speed transmission gives you seamless acceleration, faster cycle times and more nimble movement around the jobsite.
  • No need to shift – just set your desired ground speed and the dozer adjusts for maximum fuel efficiency and power to the ground.
  • Agility and ideal machine balance help you achieve high quality grades quickly.
  • Take on heavier work with a new purpose-built push arm model.

TECHNOLOGY THAT PUSHES PROFITS

  • Cat GRADE with Slope Assist automatically maintains pre-established blade position without a GPS signal – no additional hardware or software needed.
  • Cat GRADE with 3D is now faster, more accurate and more flexible; position sensing cylinders are eliminated and there are no masts.
  • New GRADE operator interface is more intuitive and easier to use. 10-inch (254 mm) touch screen, Android OS platform, operates like a smart phone.
  • Better theft protection with smaller antennas integrated into the cab roof and GPS receivers mounted inside the cab.
  • AutoCarry automates blade lift to help you maintain consistent blade load and help reduce track slip.
  • Slope Indicate shows machine cross-slope and fore/aft orientation right on the main display to help operators with slope work.
  • Attachment Ready Option (ARO) comes from the factory with key sensors and wiring installed so you can easily upgrade to a fully integrated grade control or blade mounted system.
  • Next generation dozers give you optimal mounting locations and floor routing, making it simple to install the aftermarket grade control system of your choice.

DESIGNED FOR OPERATORS

  • Completely redesigned, more spacious cab for a whole new standard in comfort and productivity.
  • More glass area, steeper hood angle provide 30% better forward visibility than the previous model.

  • Updated Stable Blade seamlessly works with operator inputs to help produce a smoother surface.
  • Traction Control automatically reduces track slip to save you time, fuel and track wear.*
  • Power train automatically controls brakes, transmission and steering to provide tighter turns and help operators more easily work on slopes.

    *Blade Load Monitor and Traction Control packaged with Cat GRADE with 3D.

LONG TERM VALUE AND DURABILITY

  • Heavier, more robust machine helps increase uptime and reduce overall operating cost.
  • Hydraulic and electrical lines running to the blade are guarded for better protection.
