Caterpillar has released the Cat D10 Dozer, noting that the D10’s improved technology, longer component life, extended oil changes and increased serviceability reduces maintenance and repair costs up to 8%.
That, according to the company, results in low cost of ownership.
The D10 is powered by the Cat C27 engine, which offers after-treatment to meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage V and Tier 2 equivalent emissions standards for meeting global market needs.
The dozer burns less fuel, increases productivity and improves uptime.
Features Include Automatic Blade Control
The D10 features a stator clutch torque converter and load-sensing hydraulics, and the company said the new design is up to 6% more efficient than the Cat D10T2.
Maximizing material moved per liter of fuel, the C27 switches power settings based on travel direction to offer up to 20% more power in reverse, reducing cycle times. In addition to delivering productivity gains of up to 3%, the new D10 offers up to a 4% fuel consumption advantage over the D10T2 and up to 10% over the D10T.
Optional Cat Grade Control 3D precisely positions the blade’s cutting edge for consistent grades. Optional Automatic Ripper Control minimizes track slip by automatically monitoring and adjusting engine speed and ripper shank depth.
The company said the D10 is “future-ready” to integrate future technology advancements, and onboard technologies such as standard dual-tilt and automated blade assist help reduce operator workload by automating blade movement to preset load, carry and spread positions.
The dozer is also customizable to site conditions with multiple optional technologies designed to increase productivity and efficiency. AutoCarry is one of those, and it provides automatic blade control during the carry segment.
