The new Cat D6T dozer features a fully automatic transmission to optimize performance and achieve fuel savings of up to 20% in heavy work and as much as 30% in light work and finish grading applications. The fully automatic bulldozer is easier to operate — operators set the desired ground speed and the four-speed transmission will set the powertrain for optimum efficiency.

The automatic transmission adds a gear between first and second ranges for smooth shifting and to maintain power to the ground during load changes. The added gear allows the machine to remain in the most efficient mode for a higher percentage of the time, resulting in 2.5% greater productivity.

Powering the D6T is the fuel-efficient Cat C9.3 ACERT engine, which is Tier 4 Final certified and has a net power rating of 215 hp.

Cat GRADE with Slope Assist is now standard on the D6T, providing basic blade positioning assistance without the need for added hardware or a GPS signal.

The D6T is available in multiple undercarriage configurations and with a wide range of blades to match the machine to the application.
