Both new and experienced operators will
find operating the machine easy with our
new Stable Blade Control.
Stable Blade Control senses ground
conditions to complement operator input
for smooth finish grading results with less
operator effort. This system reacts faster
than humanly possible.
Power Train
Smooth and responsive to changing loads
Performance: Hydrostatic Transmission
Engine speed is automatically maintained to match the
power requirements of the application. It also offers
independent power and control of each track, for fast
acceleration and on-the-go direction changes.
• Quick response to varying loads for shorter cycle times
• Traction control allows better traction when working in
poor underfoot conditions
Unsurpassed Maneuverability
• Intuitive controls help you work in tight areas
• Power turn feature provides power to both tracks while
working in confined areas
• Counter-rotation provides quick steering corrections
during side loading applications
Fuel Economy
Eco Modes
Eco Modes achieve significant fuel consumption reduction by allowing the
engine to run at lower speed whenever possible, and rapidly increasing
speed when power is needed. Designed to save fuel in light or medium duty
applications, the extremely fast engine response allows these modes to be
used even in power demanding applications and eliminates the need to
constantly shift into and out of Eco Modes.
• Operators can either select the “Reverse only” or “Forward and
Reverse” mode
• Can help save from 5 percent up to 18 percent of fuel depending
on the application
Solutions to lower your costs per hour
Updated Undercarriage Design
The new undercarriage design improves durability and increases stability to allow smoother ride and excellent finish grading
performance. You can grade faster, while still producing a top quality finish grade at the first pass.
Choice of Undercarriage Configurations to Meet Your Application
Track frames are available in extra long (XL) or low ground pressure (LGP) configurations:
• XL undercarriage for most applications where flotation and side stability are not extreme
• LGP undercarriage for soft underfoot conditions where additional flotation is required
Track Selection
Caterpillar offers a choice of two undercarriages – Heavy Duty Sealed and Lubricated Track (S&LT) and SystemOne™.
Matching the correct undercarriage to the application and soil conditions will deliver the lowest costs per hour.
• Heavy Duty Sealed and Lubricated Track (S&LT) Undercarriage
– For impact applications, with the necessary wear material for long life
– Designed to ease disassembly for bushing turn service to maximize track link wear life
• SystemOne Undercarriage
– For moderate to high abrasion applications
– For reduced maintenance costs and increased life of all undercarriage components
– Innovative rotating bushing design that eliminates the need for bushing turns
Integrated Technologies
Monitor, manage, and enhance job site operations
Cat Connect makes smart use of technology and services to
improve your job site efficiency. Using the data from technologyequipped machines, you’ll get more information and insight into
your equipment and operations than ever before.
Cat Connect technologies offers improvements in these key areas:
Equipment Management – increase uptime and
reduce operating costs.
Productivity – monitor production and manage
job site efficiency.
Safety – enhance job site awareness to keep your
people and equipment safe.
Cat Connect LINK Technologies
LINK technologies wirelessly connect you to your equipment giving you access
to essential information you need to know to run your business. Link data can give
you valuable insight into how your machine or fleet is performing so you can make
timely, fact-based decisions that can boost job site efficiency and productivity.
Product Link/VisionLink®
Product Link is deeply integrated into your machine, helping to take the guesswork
out of equipment management. Easy access to timely information like machine
location, hours, fuel usage, idle time and event codes via the online VisionLink user
interface can help you effectively manage your fleet and lower operating costs.
Cat Connect GRADE Technologies
GRADE technologies combine digital design data, in-cab guidance and automatic
machine control to help operators hit target grade faster and finish jobs quickly,
accurately, and in fewer passes – improving grading productivity and efficiency
with less rework.
Cat AccuGrade
The dealer-installed AccuGrade system automates blade movements and
accurately guides the operator to grade, reducing manual operator inputs as
much as 80 percent. Experienced operators can maintain peak efficiency levels
throughout the work day, and less experienced operators can be more productive
faster. AccuGrade reduces grade checking and staking, labor and material costs,
and improves job site safety.
Caterpillar offers a choice of:
• Laser – for 2D flat planes and slopes
• Global Navigation Satellite System – for complex 3D cuts/contours
• Universal Total Station – for fine and finish grades
AccuGrade Ready Option (ARO)
The factory AccuGrade Ready Option provides optimal mounting locations,
brackets, and hardware to make the AccuGrade installation quick and easy.
Deep integration optimizes machine and system performance and productivity.
Work Tools
Move more with productive and durable blades
New Bulldozer and Wider Blade Design
• Both XL and LGP blades are now wider; this improves
finish grading productivity by covering more ground
at each pass
• Strong design allows Cat blades to stand up to the most
severe applications
• Large spherical linkage bearing for easier blade removal
and designed for the life of the machine
New Variable Pitch Angle Tilt (VPAT) Blade
The versatility of the VPAT Blade gives the D6K2 the ability
to take on a variety of applications and material conditions,
such as finish grading, spreading material or backfilling.
This blade allows the operator to adjust the blade lift,
angle and tilt simultaneously. The blade pitch adjustment
is made easier, which can help increase your productivity.
Foldable Blade Option
Designed to facilitate transportation without blade
removal, foldable blades reduce the overall shipping width.
The blade can be easily folded without the need for tools.
Rear Attachments and Options
Increase your versatility
Multi-Shank Ripper
The aggressive parallelogram ripper lets you do more productive ripper work. The parallel linkage design provides better penetration and maneuverability in tight working areas.
Dealer Installed Hydrostatic Winch
The winch features excellent line pull at any speed, infinitely variable drum speed,
lower operator effort and unmatched load control.*
Standard Control Ripper Ready Package
This option makes ripper installation easy for machines on which a ripper
will be added.
The drawbar is useful for retrieving other equipment or pulling work tools such
as discs or compactors.
*Contact your dealer for winch availability and installation.
Heavy Duty (Forestry) Options
An easier way to work in the woods
or in severe applications:
• 360 degree guarding, for added
protection of the cab
• Sweeps

• Antifreeze fluids, up to –50° C (–58° F)
Durable and efficient
The engine radiator, Air To Air After Cooler (ATAAC), and hydraulic oil cooler are packaged in a single plane. Aluminum bar plate
construction provides durability and allows for higher heat transfer and superior corrosion resistance.
Hydraulic Demand Fan
The demand fan provides engine cooling capability that is matched to the ambient conditions. Fan speed is automatically reduced
when not needed to save fuel.
Hydraulic Reversing Fan
This option allows the fan to reverse airflow and blow debris out of the radiator cores where applications feature high amounts
of airborne debris is present. Both automatic and manual modes are available.
Inspection and cleaning of the engine radiator area is easy and from ground level.
