  • More horsepower than the previous model with a proven Cat C15 engine.
  • Dual Tilt blade option optimizes blade pitch for up to 10 percent more productivity.

BUILT TO PERFORM

  • Simultaneous blade response and steering performance with dedicated implement and steering pumps.
  • Cab-mounted air conditioning condenser supports better system performance, improved engine cooling and serviceability.
  • Auto Shift automatically downshifts to the most efficient gear based on load for fuel savings.

OPERATOR COMFORT AND CONTROL

  • Updated cab, with an integrated Roll Over Protection Structure offers greater all around visibility.
  • Improved cab pressurization helps keep dust out for a cleaner operating environment.
  • Electro-hydraulic controls reduce operator effort , improve precision and response, and enable Cat GRADE technologies.
  • Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) 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.

TECHNOLOGY THAT PUSHES PROFITS

  • Standard Slope Indicate displays machine cross-slope and fore/aft orientation right on the main display.
  • Cat GRADE with Slope Assist™ automatically maintains pre-established blade position without a GPS signal
  • Versatile, scalable Cat AccuGrade™ is an optional 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.
  • Product Link™ collects machine data that can be viewed online through web and mobile applications.
  • Access information anytime, anywhere with VisionLink® and use it to make informed decisions that boost productivity, lower costs, simplify maintenance, and improve security on your job site.

BECAUSE UPTIME COUNTS

  • Cat dozers are designed with features like wide engine panel access doors to minimize maintenance and repair time.
  • Cab-mounted air conditioning condenser supports better system performance, improved engine cooling and serviceability.
  • Ecology drains help reduce spills during power train fluid changes.
  • Fast fuel system at ground level, with positive fuel shut-off, helps prevent fuel spillage/waste and speeds refueling for more uptime.
  • High-speed oil change attachment to help make servicing even faster.
  • When you need repairs, Cat dealers and our unmatched Caterpillar distribution network excel at getting you the right parts you need quickly.
  • Maximize your equipment investment with services like Customer Support Agreements, preventive maintenance programs and guaranteed maintenance contracts.
  • Remanufactured parts offer a lower cost replacement option.
  • Certified Rebuild gives a “second life” for your machine.

WASTE HANDLING PERFORMANCE

  • Build or close cells, push trash or spread cover – Cat Waste Handlers are designed and built from the frame up to take on the challenges of landfill work.
  • Specialized guarding, striker bars and seals help protect against impact and airborne debris.
  • Bottom and Final Drive guarding helps prevent damage from wrapping debris.
  • High debris cooling system with easy access for cleanout.
  • Specialized air handling features help deliver cleaner air to the machine and to the cab.
  • Landfill blades and center-hole track shoes help optimize your waste handler for the job.
  • Lights are mounted up and away from main debris area for protection, while still shining plenty of light on the work area.
