The Caterpillar D6N dozer made our Top Rollouts with its ‘smart’ upgrade features, including a new cab, increased fuel efficiency, and advanced grade technology that comes standard. The dozer has a new transmission with a lock-up clutch torque converter and an enhanced auto-shift system that is said to increase fuel efficiency by up to 15 percent. The cab has been upgraded to give operators more legroom, a new instrument display, and an improved HVAC system. The standard Connect Grade technology — including Cat Grade Control Slope Assist, Cat Stable Blade, and Cat Slope Indicate — helps operators handle the machine’s blade in order to increase productivity. The Grade Control Slope Assist alone can help get the job done 39 percent faster with 68 percent better surface quality and 82 percent less operator effort.
