Benefits and Features

  • Harness 6% more weight and 12% more horsepower than D7E to take on a wide range of dozing and grading tasks.
  • Move up to 8% more material per hour.
  • Like D6 and D8, fully automatic 4-speed powershift transmission continuously adjusts for maximum efficiency and power to the ground without added operator input.
  • SU and S blades are 10% larger to help you get jobs done in fewer passes.
  • Optional Performance Cutting Edges increase blade payload by up to 35% compared to standard cutting edges.
  • Elevated sprocket gives you better ride and balance, plus more penetration force.
  • Outfit your dozer from the factory to take on the challenges of waste handling, land clearing, stockpile work, dredging and more.
All comparisons to D7E.

  • Cat Grade with Slope Assist™ automatically maintains 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-inch (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.
  • Attachment Ready Option (ARO) comes from the factory with key sensors and wiring installed so you can easily upgrade to fully integrated grade control or blade mounted system.
  • All Cat Grade systems are compatible with radios and base stations from Trimble, Topcon, and Leica.
  • Already invested in a grade infrastructure? You can install grade systems from Trimble, Topcon, and Leica onto the machine.

  • New assist features just work together behind the scenes to help make machine operation easier.
  • Make the most of every pass with Blade Load Monitor to help you optimize blade capacity.*
  • Stable Blade works seamlessly with operator inputs to help produce a smoother surface.
