Standard features for the D6K include a new hydrostatic drive train, SystemOne undercarriage, and seat-mounted electro-hydraulic controls ready for easy installation of the AccuGrade grade-control system. Its undercarriage has an oscillating track roller frame, which is said to keep more of the track on the ground in uneven terrain. The D6K weighs 28,409 pounds with the XL undercarriage and 29,690 pounds with the LGP version. Cat says the hydrostatic drive train provides independent power and control of each track for precise maneuvering, quick acceleration, and on-the-go direction changes. It is powered by a 125-flywheel-hp Cat C6.6 engine with ACERT technology.
