The D10 Caterpillar dozer pairs a 600-horsepower C27 diesel engine with a stator clutch torque divider. Operating weight is 154,700 pounds, oil change intervals have been extended, and fuel lines have been integrated to enhance reliability.
Performance improvements include a 4-percent reduction in fuel consumption and 3-percent improvement in productivity, according to Caterpillar.
The crawler dozer has high-horsepower reverse, which offers up to 20 percent more power in reverse gears. Load-sensing hydraulics provide oil flow only on command, reducing parasitic draw to increase available power to the ground. Paired with a single-plane cooling system, these improvements increase operating efficiencies by up to 6 percent, according to the company.
The cab has a 10-inch touch screen display offering intuitive machine operation, upgraded seat offerings, available 360-degree vision, and improved visibility.
Available technology includes MineStar Command for remote operation and optional automated features such as AutoCarry and AutoRip. Remote Flash ensures the machine operates with the most current version of on-board software via remote updates to the software at a time convenient to the mining operation.
The new Cat D10 dozer is scheduled for mid-2022. The company produced a promotional video below.
