Republic Services | Hawthorne Cat Customer Spotlight

The Cat D7E Track-Type Tractor features a first-of-its-kind electric drive system. The electric drive system improves productivity and efficiency while lowering operating costs and dramitically reducing fuel consumption. This machine is ideal for operating in a landfill.

According to the latest issue of Infrastructure Magazine, Republic Services found that the D7E's diesel electric powertrain proved to be the most efficient way to process 3,200 tons of waste. Electric features like the power module, propulsion module, and electric generator keep power flowing and the machine running longer. The D7E meets Tier 4 Interim Emission Standards and burns half the fuel as previous models of large track-type tractors. Machine operators prefer the D7E over other track-type tractors. The cab is more comfortable, it operates quietly, and you can set the hydraulic feed to their desired specifications.

  • Fuel efficiency
  • Reduced owning and operating costs
  • Resourceful
  • Increased overall efficiency
  • Versatility
