New Cat Dozers | Powerful, Tier 4, & Fuel Efficient

Earlier this year, Caterpillar introduced the redesigned and refined Cat D3K2, D4K2 and D5K2 Dozers. The all-new Track-Type Tractors have reduced emissions, meeting Tier 4 Final emissions standards. Additionally, the new Cat Dozers feature improved performance in utility and grading applications.

New Features of the CatD3K2, D4K2, and D5K2 Dozers

Efficient Grading

  • Reduced track slippage at maximum load conditions thanks to the new Automatic Traction Control.
  • Unlike the previous traction control system, the new Automatic Traction Control does not require operator interaction.
  • Automatic Traction control keeps the machine moving steadily, productively, and minimized the need to continuously adjust the blade to prevent stalling.
  • Optional Slope Assist feature enables the operator to achieve the required main-fall by automatically maintaining pre-set blade angles. This feature also helps you attain consistent grades, faster.
  • Slope Indicate feature accurately displays the machine’s blade cross-slope direction and is a standard feature on new K2 Dozers.

Control, Comfort, Durability

  • Eco Mode reduced engine speed in less-demanding conditions to improve fuel consumption by up to 20 percent.
  • Stable Blade feature is selected by the operator and contributes to a finer control and more consistent grades.
  • The operator can adjust blade pitch hydraulically on the go with the Power Pitch feature that compliments the Stable Blade. Power Pitch can also boost productivity by up to six percent.
  • A single-lever travel/steering control and a single-level blade control are included in the well-appointed operator’s station.
  • Improved efficiency air conditioner is a standard feature on the new Cat Dozers.
  • Heated and ventilated seat as well as a heated joystick are switch activated.
