Benefits and Features

  • Harness added weight and horsepower to take on a wide range of dozing and grading tasks.
  • Improved steering, tighter turning radius, quicker turns at the end of each pass help you finish jobs faster.
  • Fully automatic 3-speed transmission gives you seamless acceleration, faster cycle times and more nimble movement around the jobsite.
  • No need to shift – just set your desired ground speed and the dozer adjusts for maximum fuel efficiency and power to the ground.
  • Agility and ideal machine balance help you achieve high quality grades quickly.
  • Take on heavier work with a new purpose-built push arm model.

  • Cat Grade with Slope Assist™ automatically maintains operator’s pre-established blade position without a GPS signal – no additional hardware or software needed.
  • Factory integrated Cat Grade with 3D uses GPS to control the blade so you can get to design plan faster.
  • Cat Grade with 3D has no masts – small antennas are integrated into the cab roof and GPS receivers are mounted inside the cab for better protection.
  • Grade operator interface is intuitive and easier to use: 10-in (254 mm) touchscreen, Android OS platform, operates like a smart phone.
  • Slope Indicate shows machine cross-slope and fore/aft orientation right on the main display to help operators with slope work.
