Product description for Caterpillar D6

The CAT D6 is a medium-sized bulldozer. The track-type tractor was designed for a variety of applications, particularly construction. Variants of the D6 have also been available for specialty uses including agriculture. A CAT D6 for sale from dealers or a used CATERPILLAR D6 dozer for sale at auction can be a unique collectors item or a useful machine for dozing applications. About the CATERPILLAR D6 Bulldozer The CATERPILLAR D6 Bulldozer is designed to move material over short distances and through challenging terrain including steep slopes. Low ground pressure versions of the D6 are also available for use in muddy areas. The powerful but compact machine weighs between 16 and 20 tones, although CATERPILLAR D6 specs vary depending on the model and configuration. The bulldozer CATERPILLAR D6 is often found in construction applications, as well as forestry and agriculture. The versatility and reliability of bulldozer D6 models in a variety of conditions has also made it popular for military use. CATERPILLAR D 6 Production History The U.S.-made D6 was first introduced by Caterpillar in 1935 as the RD6. The early tractor featured a three-cylinder, 45-horsepower D6600 engine. After 1937, the tractor was known as the Caterpillar D 6 and continues to be known as such. In 1941, Caterpillar rolled out a refreshed D6 Cat under the 4R and 5R Series with 55-horsepower, six-cylinder D4600 engines that had also been used in the CATERPILLAR D5. The D 6 dozer has been reinvented and refreshed several times throughout its history. In 1947, the D6 CATERPILLAR 4R and 5R were replaced with the 8U and 9U series, which featured 60-inch narrow and 74-inch wide gauges respectively. The newer tractors were designed with a six-cylinder CATERPILLAR D318 engine that produced 66 horsepower. In 1959, the follow-up to the D 6 CATERPILLAR 8U and 9U tractors was the D6B. This was followed by the D6C in 1963 and the D6D in 1977. The D6D boasted a 140-horsepower engine. It was also available with a 125-horsepower engine for agriculture use. In 1986, the Hi-Drive D6H entered the market and for the first time featured an elevated drive sprocket undercarriage. Later versions included the D6R in 1996. As of March 2015, a CATERPILLAR d6 for sale from suppliers are available in three models. Current versions of the D 6 CAT include the 140-horsepower D6M, the 125-horsepower D6K, the 150-horsepower D6N, and the 165-horsepower D6T. The three models weight between 12,886 and 21,178 kilograms. CATERPILLAR D6 Dozer Blades A D6 dozer for sale from suppliers or used D6 dozers for sale at auction is available with various blades. CATERPILLAR D6 dozer blades are front-mounted. When considering a D6 CAT dozer for sale at auction, be sure to take into account the type of blade and what you might need or prefer before bidding. Varieties include the straight blade or S-Blade, which is a short blade with no lateral curve or side wings. The Dozer CAT D6 S-Blade is designed for fine grading. The tall, curved Universal Blade or U-Blade features large side wings is designed for transporting larger quantities of materials. The S-U Blade combination is shorter, has less curvature and has smaller side wings than the U-Blade. The CAT D 6 is also available with VPAT, or Variable Pitch Angle and Tilt. This is a straight blade that has the ability to alter the blade’s pitch forward or backwards. The VPAT feature is also capable of hydraulically raising, tilting or angling the blade for fine grading use. CAT D6 Dozer Attachments The D6 CATERPILLAR bulldozer is available with a selection of rear attachments for specific tasks. A D6 CAT for sale at auction might include a tower scraper, a ripper with single or multiple shanks for breaking hard soil and rock, and a hydraulic winch for towing or pulling. The rear of the D6 CATERPILLAR dozer can also be fitted with large steel slabs in order to add weight and help with heavy dozing. When looking at a CATERPILLAR D6 dozer for sale at auction, be sure to consider which attachment you might need or prefer. D6 CATERPILLAR Dozer for Sale A D6 CATERPILLAR for sale from sellers is attractive for collectors as well as operators. A newer CAT D6 dozer for sale at auction is also a viable choice for construction, forestry operations, and other dozing applications. Original D6 dozer models are generally too large for most collectors, although they can be impressive machines to preserve and showcase.
