The 5P Power Angle Tilt (5P-PAT) blade is a highly versatile tool that allows complete blade adjustment from the operator’s compartment. The ability for the operator to angle and tilt the dozer while operating is a significant performance and productivity enhancer. The operator can hydraulically adjust angle and tilt on the go, to focus the 527CA weight and horsepower on tough digging spots, effectively increasing the 527 digging forces to that of larger tractor. Further, hydraulic angle and tilt allows precise placement of material for faster doze cycles, and more efficient terracing and pioneering.With the knowledge of industry expectations gained since the introduction of the 527CA, Caterpillar designed a 527 PAT dozer specifically for Asian market requirements. It combines the control advantages of the 5P-PAT, with the durability and ease of material casting performance of the MA. The new 527 PAT dozer provides machine width coverage when fully angled, but will not compromise the 527’s balance and stability in adverse terrain maneuvering. With appropriate dozer width, improved cutting edge angle and moldboard curvature, combined with the performance advantage of hydraulic angle and tilt, the 527 PAT dozing capabilities can be raised to equal the industry standard D6G.
