The new Cat D6K2 Track-Type Tractor uses the Cat C6.6 ACERT engine that meets Tier 4 interim emissions requirements. The new Stable Blade Control feature utilizes technology which complements operator blade control input. Eco Modes, both forward and/or reverse, improve fuel economy up to 22%, depending on the application. K2 models feature hydrostatic drive with Traction Control, which reduces track slip at maximum load. New wider blades allow more ground to be covered in one pass and provide up to 8% productivity improvement in slot dozing applications. New manual adjustable pitch allows the operator to control blade pitch fore/aft for maximum productivity in various material conditions.
The K2 models blend these new features with the basic field-proven design of their K Family predecessors, a design that includes single-lever travel/steering control, spacious operator’s station with standard air conditioning with cab-equipped, single-lever blade control, Cat Sealed-and-Lubricated Track (S<) or Cat SystemOne undercarriage. The D6K2 benefits from the recently introduced undercarriage improvements of the D6K. The combination of eight bottom rollers and two carrier rollers allow for a smoother ride and better finish grading capabilities at a higher speed, according to Cat.
Net power ratings are 97 130 hp at 2,200 rpm. The new C6.6 ACERT engine features Air To Air After Cooling, a new electric fuel priming pump, and a passive regeneration system for emissions reduction.
