Cat Wheel Dozers are designed with durability built in, ensuring maximum availability through multiple life cycles. With optimized performance and simplified serviceability, our machines allow you to support your job site efficiently and safely while lowering owning and operating costs. Introduced in the mid-1960's, the 834 has been the industry leader for almost 50 years. Focused on helping our customers succeed, we have continued to build upon each new series. The 834K continues our legacy of reliability, performance, safety, operator comfort, serviceability, and efficiency.
The Cat C18 ACERT engine is built and tested to meet your most demanding applications. Three C18 ACERT engine options are available in this machine: A U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV Technology with aftertreatment, Tier 3 equivalent ACERT engine without aftertreatment, or a Tier 2 equivalent ACERT engine without aftertreatment.
Fully integrated electronic engine controls works in concert with the entire machine to make your fuel go farther.
Use less fuel idling with Engine Idle Shutdown.
Maximized durability with Delayed Engine Shutdown.
Cat Planetary Powershift Transmission
Featuring all new Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Shifting (APECS) transmission controls provides greater momentum on grades and fuel savings by carrying that momentum through the shift points.
Impeller Clutch Torque Converter (ICTC)
Enable your operators to maximize efficiency by varying machine rimpull while putting more horsepower to hydraulics.
Reduced tire wear
Enables full throttle shifts for faster cycle times
Provides smooth approach to the dump target for less spillage and faster cycle times.
Cat Torque Converter with Lock-up Clutch
Eliminates TC losses while lowering system heat
Improves travel speeds
Reduces cycle times in load and carry operations
Improved Hydraulic Efficiency
New flow sharing implement and steering variable displacement load sensing piston pumps.
Hydraulic flow now on demand, for improved fuel efficiency.
The 834K electronic systems have been completely integrated to function as one machine. This integration creates a smart machine and more informed operator, maximizing the productivity of both.
Cat Product Link™
Cat Product link allows remote monitoring of equipment to improve overall fleet management effectiveness. Events and diagnostic codes, as well as hours, fuel, idle time and other information are transmitted to a secure web based application, VisionLink™. VisionLink includes powerful tools to convey information to users and dealers, including mapping, working and idle time, fuel level and more.
We have worked hard to help our customers and operators perform at their best through our Vital Information Management System (VIMS 3G).
Easy-to-view graphical information display features a large touch screen interface.
Intuitive operation and easy navigation with our enhanced user interface.
Decrease service time by keeping operators informed about machine system malfunction or operation.
Cat MineStar System is the industry's broadest suite of integrated mine operations and mobile equipment management technologies, configurable to suit your operation's needs. Its capability sets - Fleet, Terrain, Detect, Health and Command - contain a range of technologies that let you manage everything from fleet assignment and condition monitoring to remote and autonomous control. The 834K can take advantage of many of these advanced technologies, some of which are standard out of the factory.
Fleet provides comprehensive, real-time machine tracking, assignment and productivity management, giving you a comprehensive overview of all operations from anywhere in the world.
Terrain for Loading
Terrain with your 834K enables high-precision management of loading operations through the use of guidance technology. It increases 834K productivity and provides you real-time feedback for improved efficiency.
Detect helps increase operator awareness, enhancing safety at your operation. It includes a range of capabilities designed to assist the operator with areas of limited visibility around fixed and mobile equipment.
Health delivers critical event-based machine condition and operating data for your entire fleet. It includes comprehensive equipment health and asset monitoring capabilities, with a wide range of diagnostic, analytic and reporting tools.
Sustainability is designed and built into our 834K's features.
Engine Idle Shutdown and Auto Idle Kickdown can help you save fuel by avoiding unnecessary idling.
Reduce waste generation with our maintenance free batteries.
The 834K is built for multiple lives. To assist with maximizing machine life, Caterpillar provides a number of sustainable options such as our Reman and Certified Rebuild programs. In these programs, reused or remanufactured components can deliver cost savings of 40 to 70 percent, which lowers operating cost.
Caterpillar offers retrofit packages to bring new features to older machines, maximizing your resource. And, when you go through the Cat Certified Rebuild program, these retrofit kits are part of the rebuild process.
Cat blades are resilient, durable and designed with excellent dozing and rolling characteristics.
Capacities and widths are set to achieve increased productivity.
Spreading design allows for spreading of cover material, as well as dozing of heavier loads.
The straight blade (7.9 m3/10.3 yd3) is designed for production dozing in stockpile material and general earthmoving.
The universal blade (11.1 m3/14.7 yd3) is designed to move large loads over long distances in mining applications.
The characteristics of the straight and universal blades are combined into the semi-universal blade (10.1 m3/13.3 yd3). It provides increased capacity with the addition of short wings which include only the dozer end bits without sacrificing spreading characteristics of straight blades.
The coal blade (22.2 m3/29 yd3) is designed for precise and productive dozing while helping to retain load control with increased capacity for lighter materials. Wing angles help retain the load while dozing. This blade is available from Cat Work Tool and Services (CWTS).
The straight, semi-universal and universal blades consists of the blade, push arms, hydraulic lift, tip and tilt cylinders, trunnion mounting, stabilizer and hydraulic line guards.
Other Available Options
See your Cat dealer for blade options such as coal and wood scoop from CWTS and Custom Products.
The 834K has several features to achieve greater fuel efficiency:
Positive Flow Control Hydraulics - Provides only the hydraulic flow required by the implement and steering systems for improved fuel efficiency and greater rimpull.
ACERT Engine - Advanced engine controls maximizes power and efficiency.
Engine Idle Shutdown - Automatic engine and electrical system shutdown conserves fuel.
Lock-up Torque Converter - Transfers more power to the ground and optimizes fuel efficiency in all applications.
Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Strategy (APECS) - All new APECS transmission controls provides greater momentum on grades and fuel savings by carrying that momentum through the shift points. Machine configuration, operator technique, and job site layout can impact fuel consumption.
Machine Configuration - Select the correct work tool and tire type based on machine application. Ensure proper inflation pressures.
Idle - Set the parking brake to engage Engine Idle Management System.
