Unmatched support makes the difference. Dealer Services Your Cat dealer is ready to assist you with your purchase decision and everything after.
Make comparisons of the machines, with estimates of component life, preventative maintenance and cost of production. Financing packages are flexible to meet your needs. Your Cat dealer can evaluate the cost to repair, rebuild and replace your machine, so you can make the right choice. For more information on Cat products, dealer services and industry solutions, visit us at www. Operator Station Superior comfort keeps you productive, all day long.
Cab The operator station is designed to keep operators comfortable, relaxed and productive throughout the long work shift. This provides a quiet, comfortable working environment reducing fatigue and increasing their productivity. Seat-Mounted Joystick Controls For optimum comfort and precise control, the D3K features ergonomically designed seat-mounted controls. Seat-mounted controls isolate vibrations from the operator, and provide independent seat and controls adjustment. Individual wrist pads and armrests can be adjusted independently for optimum comfort.
Monitoring Package Easy to read display provides vital system information. Dozer Blade Control Ergonomic joystick is easy to use and reduces operator fatigue. The intuitive control makes operating the tractor easy for both new and experienced operators. The new handle shape conforms to your hand for precise blade raise and tilt control with less operator fatigue. A thumb roller controls the blade angle and requires less effort than other competitive machines.
A blade shake button on top of the handle provides momentary quick tilt movement to easily remove material from the blade. Depressing pedal through bottom of travel detent applies brake. Pedal mode can also be changed to control transmission speed with selection buttons on the display panel. Hydrostatic Transmission Control Seat-mounted controls improve productivity. Speed and Direction Control Speed, direction and steering are all controlled with a single, easy to use joystick for less effort and lower fatigue so you can get more done.
The joystick controls direction and has three simple detented positions for travel—forward, reverse and neutral. With the machine in motion, simply move the joystick in the direction you wish to move the machine.
The more the joystick is moved to the right or left, the tighter the turn. Regardless of ground conditions, steering is consistent and predictable. Infinitely Variable Speed Control The speed control thumb wheel mounted on the joystick is used to infinitely increase and decrease speed, letting the operator select the optimum speed for ground and job conditions.
It also eliminates power interruption when changing speeds. A speed recall button on the joystick is used to select pre-determined speed settings. Maneuverability The power turn feature lets you handle large loads around corners or through hard spots. Power turn capability improves mobility in soft underfoot conditions and is very effective on side slopes. Counter-rotation provides easy, quick maneuvering in tight areas or congested job sites.
It uses ACERT Technology, a series of Caterpillar engineered innovations that provide advanced electronic control, precision fuel delivery and refined air management, resulting in outstanding performance and lower emissions.
It meets the U. Outstanding Performance The C4. The engine is more compact, allowing the cab to sit more forward - this improves machine balance and provides greater operator comfort. The engine and transmission control systems are integrated to optimize performance and fuel efficiency. Undercarriage Lower owning and operating costs.
Caterpillar offers two different undercarriage choices for lowest owning and operating costs for your application needs. Full length guarding on top of the track roller frame prevents abrasive material from falling down on moving parts. Machine balance is the key to good grading performance. Greater track length and a stable platform lead to optimum balance, allowing you to complete jobs easier and quicker with the D3K than with competitive machines.
SystemOne Undercarriage With the revolutionary SystemOne undercarriage option, undercarriage maintenance time and costs are greatly reduced, lowering your costs and helping your bottom line. This innovative system uses a rotating bushing design which increases bushing life and eliminates the need for bushing turns. The rotating bushing combined with long wear life sprockets and center tread idler, increases the life and dependability of the entire system.
Ideal for virtually any application or underfoot condition, the SystemOne undercarriage also features significantly less vibration for a better, more comfortable ride. Segmented sprockets are easy to replace and less expensive than replacing the complete sprocket hub. XL undercarriage provides increased ground contact area and flotation, superior balance and excellent finish grading. In addition, the LGP version also features a wider track shoe, increasing ground contact area for optimum flotation and stability on sloping and finish grading jobs.
Grade Control Systems Caterpillar is revolutionizing the way to move material with new technology solutions for earthmoving machines — solutions that provide greater accuracy, higher productivity, lower operating costs and greater profits. The AccuGrade System is designed and integrated into the machine and hydraulic systems to create an automated blade control system that allows operators to grade with increased accuracy. The system uses machine-mounted sensors to calculate precise blade slope and elevation information.
A laser transmitter on the worksite creates a constant grade reference over the work area. A digital laser receiver mounted on the machine captures the laser signal. The system calculates the blade adjustments necessary to achieve grade, makes automatic elevation adjustments typically performed by the operator and provides automatic blade control. The operator simply steers the machine.
Automated blade control lets you achieve grade faster and in fewer passes, reducing the need for traditional survey stakes or grade checkers. Work is completed faster, more accurately and with less manpower. AccuGrade Laser is well suited for flat work such as concrete pads and driveways. AccuGrade GPS puts all the information the operator needs to complete the job in the cab for a greater level of control.
Vertical and horizontal guidance tools visually guide the operator to the desired grade. Automated features allow the hydraulic system to automatically control blade adjustments to move the blade to grade.
The operator simply uses the light bars to guide the machine for consistent, accurate grades and slopes, increasing productivity with less fatigue. AccuGrade GPS is best used for cut and contour jobs. The AccuGrade monitor is conveniently located, allowing the operator to view system information while keeping a straight line of sight to the blade corners. Blade and Attachments Cat work tools can handle tough dozing applications. Built for rugged strength and durability, this 6-way blade allows for adjustable angle, tilt and pitch.
Visibility to the blade corners and cutting edge is improved. This is especially critical when working near curbs and foundation structures.
Parallelogram 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.
Forestry Options An easier way to work in the woods. The D3K is available with the following features to aid in forestry applications: Forestry blade, featuring additional guarding to protect the tractor from debris and to provide increased blade productivity Cat hydrostatic winch, featuring excellent line pull at any speed and infinitely variable drum speed Heavy-duty rear tank guard. Infinitely variable speed control. Outstanding Control The Cat hydrostatic winch offers outstanding control of the load with infinitely variable modulation of speed and pull.
Mechanical winches force the operator to choose the gear ratio of the winch. The Cat hydrostatic winch eliminates this compromise by providing the speed of a standard winch and the pull of a low speed winch, all in one package. The result is: Excellent line pull at any speed Infinitely variable drum speed.
