Caterpillar launches new dozer

Cat has released the new D10T2 tracked dozer.

According to the company this new dozer builds on the existing D10T, and features refinements to its power train, automated controls, and its structure.

Cat states that it uses advanced load sensing hydraulics combined with Cat engine control “to maximise the amount of material moved for every drop of fuel burned”.

This system automatically and continuously adjusts implement hydraulic power and delivers the right levels of flow and pressure, allowing for more power available for the tracks.

Enhanced AutoShift (EAS) is also included as a new standard feature on the D10T2.

“EAS improves fuel efficiency and productivity by automatically selecting the optimal gear and engine speed combination based on power train load and desired ground speed,” Cat said

“This feature functions similarly to an automatic transmission. EAS functionality combined with the increased power in reverse enhances productivity when backing up slopes.”

New electronic systems are also now available.

Autocarry, which provides automatic blade control during the carry segment of the dozing cycle by measuring ground speed and track slip in included, with a new feature – Adaptive Load Select – enhancing Autocarry by automatically adjusting blade load based on operating conditions, such as underfoot conditions and track wear.

Similarly, the new Automatic Ripper Control monitors speed with GNSS and automatically adjusts engine speed and ripper depth to minimise track slip.

The dozers are designed with improved filtration to protect the fuel system, hydraulic system, and power train oil system to cut downtimes.

The manufacturer has refined its structure by redesigning its track roller frames, as well as providing improved access and egress features to enhance safety.

It has developed two variations of the D10T2, one with a Cat C27 engine with ACERT, and the other with a US EPA Tier IV Final certified engine.

Both variations have a net power of 447kW in forward gears and 538kW in reverse.

Cat added that the new model “has about 20 per cent more power in reverse compared to its predecessor model. This results in faster cycle times and greater productivity in certain applications”.

It has an operating weight of 70 tonnes, and a semi-universal blade capacity 18 cubic metres and a universal blade capacity of 22 cubic metres.
