The latest Caterpillar D6N dozer delivers a 10-15% boost in fuel efficiency and up to 10% better productivity compared to the previous model. It also offers advanced GRADE technologies as standard equipment. The D6N is powered by a Cat C7.1 ACERT engine rated at 166 net hp and meets US EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards.

Fuel-efficiency gains result primarily from the D6N's new transmission with a lock-up clutch torque converter that seamlessly selects the drive mode best suited to the application. The transmission provides the performance of direct drive with the ease of operation of power shift.

The standard Enhanced Auto Shift system, combined with the lock-up-clutch control, allows operators to select the optimum ground speed for the load being moved, resulting in further fuel savings. In addition, an electronically controlled, variable-speed demand fan automatically adjusts its speed to conserve engine horsepower and fuel, and reduce sound levels.

Every new D6N dozer comes equipped with Cat Connect GRADE technologies to help operators control the blade. Experienced operators can work more productively, and less experienced operators can achieve better quality results more quickly, according to the company. These smart features are integrated into the machine at the factory, and no additional hardware or software is required.

Cat Connect LINK technologies offer telematics to wirelessly connect users to their equipment, providing insight into machine or fleet performance. It provides easy access to information such as machine location, hours, fuel usage, idle time, and event codes. Data is available via the online VisionLink user interface.
