With the D11T crawler dozer’s transition to Tier-2 certification, Caterpillar redesigned the T-Series cab with 30 percent more glass and added safety and comfort options. The 850-horsepower Cat C32 ACERT diesel engine delivers a 21 percent torque rise for responsive power while satisfying USEPA Tier-2 and EU Stage II emissions regulations. A hydraulically actuated access ladder is available as an option, as is a rear walkway with a 505-gallon fuel tank to simplify cleaning rear and side windows and maintaining rear lights. WAVS, an optional rear-vision camera system, improves visibility and can be ordered with one or two cameras. The electro-hydraulic dozer control can be programmed using the Advisor panel to preset blade response, blade float, blade pitch and spread rate. The ripper control is also programmable with features such as Auto Lift, Shank Out and Auto Stow.
