  • Excellent machine balance, power-to-weight-ratio and VPAT blade for general dozing and fine grading.
  • For dozing productivity, updated SU configuration follows the design of larger Cat dozers with front-mounted lift cylinders to provide more breakout force and stability.
  • Forestry and landfill arrangements offer added features and guarding to take on especially harsh environments..


  • Spacious cab, with an integrated Roll Over Protection Structure (ROPS) and 15° offset seat, offers greater all around visibility.
  • Improved cab pressurization helps keep dust out for a cleaner operating environment.
  • Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)* places machine data, settings menus and more conveniently in front of the operator.
  • Low effort electro-hydraulic controls* offer precise response and facilitate GRADE technologies.
  • Choose the best speed for your job: 5-speed mode is easily adjusted with throttle dial.
  • Bi-directional control to preselect forward/reverse gears – automatically downshifts to the most efficient gear based on load for reduced operator effort and improved efficiency.

    * Not available on SU configuration.


  • Cat 7.1 electronic engine provides more power and up to 3 percent better fuel efficiency compared to the previous model.
  • Robust engine fuel system features high efficiency fuel filters and water-in-fuel sensors for greater fuel system reliability.
  • Differential steering with dedicated steering pump maintain power in turns, even with a full blade load.


  • Cat Stable Blade complements the operator's blade-control input for attaining finish grades quicker with less effort.
  • Standard Slope Indicate displays machine cross-slope and fore/aft orientation right on the main display.*
  • Automatically maintain established blade main fall/cross slope with Cat GRADE with Slope Assist™*. Finish jobs faster, with better surface quality and significantly less operator effort. No additional hardware required.
  • Versatile, scalable Cat AccuGrade™ 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.
  • 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 safety and security on your job site.
  • Simplify installation of an AccuGrade system with the AccuGrade Ready Option (ARO).
  • Manage your fleet more effectively and profitably with Product Link™/VisionLink® remote monitoring.

    * Not available on SU configuration.


  • Designed for ease of repair and maintenance so you can spend less time on service and more time on the job.
  • Service points are grouped and sight gauges let you inspect fluid levels at a glance.
  • Service point locations are consistent across Cat tractor models to help save you even more time.
  • High efficiency fuel filters have water-in-fuel sensors toadd to fuel system robustness.
  • Air conditioning condenser is mounted externally, above the rear cab window, without adding to machine height.
  • Heating/ventilation/air conditioning capability is increased, while improving engine cooling and serviceability.


  • Forestry arrangement is available with optional machine protection like sweeps, screens and added guarding to help protect the machine in harsh conditions. Cooling system is designed for high debris environments, with easy access for cleanout.
  • Waste handler/landfill arrangement offers specialized guarding, striker bars and seals help protect the machine from impact and airborne/wrapping debris. Cooling is designed for high debris environments and easy cleanout. Specialized air handling features help deliver cleaner air to the machine. Landfill blades and center-hole track shoes help optimize your waste handler for the job.
