The latest Cat D6T Dozer has been updated to meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 final emissions standards and delivers both the power needed for heavy dozing applications and the fine control for finish grading.

The D6T now features Stable Blade Control. The system complements operator input by automatically making instantaneous blade adjustments, yielding a more precise finish grade with less effort from the operator. It also helps less experienced operators achieve a higher quality finish grade. New Selectable Electro-Hydraulic Maps allow the operator to set the blade response level to suit personal preferences or to tailor the machine to the type of work being done.

Enhanced Auto Shift allows the operator to select the optimum ground speed for the job. It helps save fuel by automatically choosing the most efficient gear based on load. The previous 3-speed transmission has been updated with a 6- and 9- speed format to enable the operator to optimize ground speed choices for heavy- and light-duty applications. With Enhanced Auto Shift activated, the Bi-Directional Shift system allows pre-setting forward/reverse gear ranges, saving the operator from repetitively making this selection with each directional shift.

The D6T is powered by a Cat C9.3 ACERT engine, rated at 207 net hp.  Proven Cat emissions reduction technology is designed to require no special actions from the operator and no need to stop for regeneration. Selective catalytic reduction utilizes diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), which can be replenished when refueling. Improved fuel economy over Tier 4 interim models, and efficient use of DEF, means the D6T provides excellent overall fluid efficiency. 

The D6T is available in XL, XW, and LGP configurations to equip the machine for the application. Specially equipped machines for waste handling and forestry applications also are available. Blades available for the D6T include semi-universal, straight, angle, and landfill. A variable pitch angle tilt (VPAT) blade offers adjustable pitch and hydraulically adjustable angle and tilt. Track shoe and rear implement options also can ideally configure a machine for the work it will do.

Rethinking Utilization: Using the Energy in Parked EVs

By Facundo Tassara
Think the return on investment for electric vehicles (EVs) is too long? Vehicle-to-grid technology allows EVs to earn money while parked by utilizing their large batteries to provide energy storage services for buildings, utilities, and the grid. This extra money can reduce the total cost of ownership of EVs.

Size Matters

By Sherb Brown
There is little doubt that the folks out there with 5,000-10,000 vehicles have a good handle on how much they should be paying; for everything from bucket trucks to sedan floor mats. But some of our recent survey data shows that vast hordes of the fleet market are paying close to retail rates for a lot of products and services.
