SPECS SUMMARY

Engine ModelCat C4.4
Power - Net130 HP (97 kW)
EmissionsU.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV/Japan 2014 (Tier 4 Final)/Korea Tier 4
Net Power (Rated) - ISO 9249130 HP (97 kW)
The D6K2 dozer is smarter and more efficient than ever. It comes equipped with GRADE technologies like Slope Assist and GRADE with 3D to make it easier for even less experienced operators to get more quality work done in less time. But intelligence is only part of the package – Eco Modes and a new power train deliver up to 17 percent more fuel efficiency, while providing superior maneuverability, faster steering response and greater capability to utilize full blade loads. This dozer also retains its optimal balance and undercarriage design for outstanding performance in finish grading applications.

Note (1)All non road Tier 4 Interim and Final, Stage IIIB and IV, Japan 2014 (Tier 4 Final) and Korea Tier 4 diesel engines are required to use only Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuels containing 15 ppm EPA/10 ppm EU (mg/kg) sulfur or less. Biodiesel blends up to B20 (20% blend by volume) are acceptable when blended with 15 ppm (mg/kg) sulfur or less ULSD. B20 should meet ASTM D7467 specification (biodiesel blend stock should meet Cat biodiesel spec, ASTM D6751 or EN 14214). Cat DEO-ULS™ or oils that meet the Cat ECF-3, API CJ-4, and ACEA E9 specification are required. Consult your OMM for further machine specific fuel recommendations.

Benefits and Features

  • Cat C4.4 engine with twin turbochargers is combined with a hydrostatic transmission for outstanding fuel efficiency and the most power-dense drive train in its size class.
  • Superior maneuverability, faster steering response, greater capability to utilize full blade loads.
  • Eco Modes optimize engine speed, while maintaining ground speed, saving up to 17 percent fuel compared to the previous model in lighter blade load applications like finish grading.
  • Optimized undercarriage – eight (8) bottom rollers and two (2) carrier rollers for smoother ride and excellent finish grading performance.
  • Wide blade helps get more work done in fewer passes.
  • Variable Pitch Angle Tilt (VPAT) blade for more versatility, simpler adjustment.

  • Hit target grade faster and more accurately with Cat GRADE technologies. Finish jobs in fewer passes, and with less operator effort, saving you time and helping to increase your profit.
  • Cat GRADE with Slope Assist™ automatically maintains pre-established blade position without a GPS signal.
  • Updated Cat GRADE with 3D offers greater speed, accuracy and flexibility. Factory-integrated system eliminates position sensing cylinders. Antennas integrated into the cab roof for better protection.
  • More intuitive 10-inch (254 mm) touchscreen grade control display is easier to use.
  • AutoCarry™ automates blade lift to maximize blade load, improve load consistency, reduce track slip.
  • Cat Stable Blade works with electro-hydraulic controls to complement the operator’s blade-control input to get better finish grades faster and with less effort.
  • Standard Slope Indicate displays machine cross-slope and fore/aft orientation right on the main display.
  • Factory Attachment Ready Option (ARO) simplifies installation of all brands of grade control system.
  • Product Link™ collects machine data that can be viewed online through web and mobile applications.
