The new Cat D9 Dozer offers customizable configurations and lowers overall costs per unit of material moved by up to 3%. Efficiencies gained through a new torque converter with stator clutch reduce fuel consumption by as much as 5%, and the new dozer reduces maintenance and repair costs by as much as 4%.

The dozer features the Cat C18 engine, which has a range of exhaust aftertreatment solutions available, including configurations to meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final regulations.

The D9 also features differential steering for a tight turning radius and the ability to maintain ground speed while turning to keep productivity high. The suspended undercarriage delivers more track contact with the ground for less slippage and greater productivity.

The versatile D9 can be equipped with any of a wide range of blades and attachments, enabling it to work efficiently in a variety of applications, including production dozing, site maintenance, fleet support, and ripping.
