Note (1)All non road Tier 4, Stage IIIB and IV, and Korea Tier 4 Final 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

  • Specialized guarding throughout the machine helps protect major components like the chassis, fuel tank and hydraulic tank from impact and airborne debris.
  • Multi-layer final drive guards help keep dirt and debris away from the Duo-Cone™ seal to protect final drive oil.
  • Pivot shaft seal guards to help prevent debris from entering and damaging seals.
  • Striker bars help prevent debris from damaging the machine, and added seals help reduce the amount of material entering engine and transmission compartments.
  • Tilt cylinder with rotating bushing type design help wrapping materials to roll off hoses.
  • Heavy duty hinged radiator guard protects radiator and fan from penetration by material coming straight in or from under the blade.
  • Cooling system designed for high debris environments, with automatic reversing fan and swing-out access for cleanout.
  • Laminated thermal shields and insulated Clean Emissions Module.
  • Hinged belly guard for easy cleaning.
  • Landfill blades and center-hole track shoes help you optimize your waste handler for the job.
  • Lights mounted up and away from main debris area for protection, while still giving you plenty of light on the work area.

  • New transmission with a lock-up clutch torque converter automatically selects the drive mode best suited to your application.
  • Up to 15% improvement in fuel efficiency and 10% more productivity* in most applications.
  • Enhanced Auto Shift (Standard) helps save fuel by automatically upshifting/downshifting to maintain the most efficient gear based on load. Three different settings, 3-speed, 6-speed and fine adjustment mode, allow you to optimize tractor performance for waste applications.
  • Comfortable, quiet operator station with excellent visibility and air handling features to help keep dust out/provide air filtration.
  • Low effort, responsive controls for precision and ease of operation.
  • Selectable electro-hydraulic maps let you set implement response to match operator preferences and application.
  • Rear vision camera available to enhance visibility behind the machine.
  • Meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV/Korea Tier 4 Final emission standards with emissions technology that is transparent – no action required from the operator, no stopping for regeneration.
*Compared to previous D6N model.

  • Cat GRADE with Slope Assist (Standard) automatically maintains pre-established blade angles to save time, increase finish quality and reduce operator effort, especially for cover work. Experienced operators can work more productively; less experienced operators can achieve better quality results more quickly.
  • Cat Slope Indicate (Standard) shows cross slope and mainfall on the primary machine display to help operators work more confidently.
  • Cat GRADE with 3D (Optional – available late 2016) is an integrated grade control system that helps operators grade with more accuracy and efficiency. Antennas mount on top of the cab – not on the blade – so they are safely out of the way of landfill debris.
  • Cat AccuGrade™ (Optional) machine control and guidance option helps operators improve productivity and accuracy by as much as 50% over conventional methods.
  • Cat AccuGrade Ready Option (ARO) (Optional) allows you to easily install or upgrade to Cat AccuGrade 2D and 3D grade-control systems to add versatility and resale value to your machine.
  • Remote monitoring with Product Link™/VisionLink® helps you manage your fleet more effectively and profitably.
