FEATURES & BENEFITS

Makes operation easy, comfortable and productive

Spacious and Comfortable

Pressurized cab reduces dust entry and noiseStandard heating – air conditioningDash mounted air vents for improved air circulationGenerous leg roomFoot restsSingle and combined hystat, brake and engine decel pedalIntegrated ROPS/FOPS cabin structure that provides outstanding all round visibility

Outstanding Visibility

Large door windows provide unobstructed view to the blade corners and help increase your finish grading precision when working near foundations. Intermittent wipers maximize visibility in poor weather conditions.

Large side windows and integrated ROPS structure of cabin offers a clear view to the sides of the machine.

Comfortable Ride – Air Suspension Seat

Fully adjustable Lumbar support Heated seat (optional) Heated and ventilated seat (optional) Seat-mounted controls A 75 mm (3 in) wide retractable seat belt automatically adjusts to any size operator and secures them in the seat for safe operation

Monitoring Package

The display keeps you informed of the system conditions. Easy to read Various available languages Large gauges New AccuGrade display support position, in line with blade corners and integrated into the dashboard

Work longer with less effort

Convenient Seat-Mounted Controls Reduce Vibrations

Seat-mounted controls isolate vibrations from the operator for optimum comfort and precise control New easy to adjust armrest and contoured armrest cushion

Electro-Hydraulic Controls

Precision and maneuverability when working around structures Easy to grip handles Easy intuitive and low effort operation

Steering and Transmission Joystick

Single joystick for the speed, direction and steering. It includes a thumb wheel for speed adjustment and the Traction Control button.

Dozer and Implements Controls

Six-way control of the VPAT blade Blade shake feature for effective removal of sticky material Blade response can be adjusted through the monitoring system Rear attachments are controlled by a single lever

…assists you in finish grading applications.

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.

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

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 lifeSystemOne 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

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 slopesGlobal Navigation Satellite System – for complex 3D cuts/contoursUniversal 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.

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.

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.

Drawbar

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.
