The Cat D6T dozer has earned a global reputation for outstanding versatility.
The Cat D6T dozer has earned a global reputation for outstanding versatility. The D6T has the pushing power you want for heavy dozing applications and the fine control you need for finish grading – all in one easy-to-transport machine. A choice of configurations, undercarriage and track, rear implements and blades give you multiple options to put together a machine ideally suited to the work you do day after day. Industry leading resale value helps you get the most from your equipment investment. The D6T meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV/Korea Tier 4 emission standards.
Designed to get the job doneLearn More
A Cat C9.3 ACERT engine gives you the power and reliability you need to get the job done. Improved fuel economy over the previous model and efficient use of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) gives you excellent overall fluid efficiency.
Differential Steering maintains full power to both tracks for best-in-class turning, even with a full blade load. When one track speeds up, the other slows down an equal amount, so you have better maneuverability and faster cycle times. You also get better load capacity, power and speed control in soft conditions because both tracks are powered during turns.
Load Sensing Hydraulics
Field-proven system senses the load and continuously adjusts hydraulic power to your blade to maximize efficiency.
A single stage torque divider sends 70 percent of engine torque through a converter and the other 30 percent through a direct drive shaft so you get more power to the ground, more efficiently.
The radiator, air-to-air aftercooler and hydraulic oil cooler are packaged in a single plane, making cleanout easier. Durable, aluminum bar plate construction gives you superior heat transfer and corrosion resistance. Six fins per inch on the standard core allow debris to pass through and help reduce plugging. A standard perforated grill helps protect the cooling system.
In cooler conditions, the hydraulic demand fan reduces speed to conserve power, save fuel and decrease sound levels. An optional reversing fan is available for high debris conditions.
Enhanced Auto Shift
Standard Enhanced Auto Shift helps you save fuel by automatically upshifting/downshifting to maintain the most efficient gear based on load. Three different modes (3-, 6-, 9-speed), plus additional fine ground speed adjustment, allow you to optimize tractor performance to match material and job site conditions.
Selectable Electro-Hydraulic Maps
Selectable Electro-Hydraulic Maps set the implement response levels – fine, medium, coarse – to match operator preferences and tailor the machine to individual applications.
Comfort and productivityLearn More
The latest D6T offers operators added comforts like a quieter cab, easy closing cab doors, a heated/ventilated seat option, manually adjustable armrests and a cup holder with auxiliary power port.
New cab (ROPS) mounted air conditioning gives you more cooling capability, and removes the condenser from under the hood so it is easier to service.
The in-dash display monitors machine conditions in real time. The panel is glare-resistant and illuminated for low-light visibility.
Implement and Steering Controls
Proven, integrated solutionsLearn More
Emissions reduction technology on the D6T is designed to be transparent, with no action required from the operator. Regeneration runs automatically in the background while you work.
To meet the additional 80 percent reduction in NOx emissions required at Tier 4 Final/Stage IV/Korea Tier 4, Caterpillar engineers added Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to the already proven aftertreatment solution.
Diesel Exhaust Fluid
Selective Catalytic Reduction utilizes Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), which can be conveniently refilled when you refuel. A gauge on the dash shows your fluid level. When the machine is turned off, a pump will automatically purge the DEF lines to help prevent the fluid from freezing in the lines and pump. A symbol on the dash and a light/symbol on the Ground Level Service Center indicate when the purge is complete and that it is safe to turn off the electrical disconnect.
If the engine/aftertreatment temperatures are high, a Delayed Engine Shutdown will activate automatically to cool the machine and then purge the lines. For complete aftertreatment information, please refer to your machine’s Operation and Maintenance Manual.

Cat Connect GRADE technologies help you hit target grade faster and more accurately. Finish jobs in fewer passes, and with less operator effort, saving you time and helping you increase profit.
Cat Slope Indicate
Cat Slope Indicate (S) displays machine cross-slope and fore/aft orientation on the primary monitor, helping operators work more accurately on slopes.
Cat Stable Blade
Cat Stable Blade (S) complements the operator’s blade-control input for attaining finish grades quicker with less effort.
Cat Grade Control 3D
Cat Grade Control 3D (O) is a factory integrated grade-control system that enables operators to improve grading efficiency, accuracy, and productivity in both production dozing and fine-grading applications. The integrated design positions antennas on the cab roof, eliminating conventional blade-mounted masts and related cables. The AccuGrade Ready Option (ARO) is part of the package for added versatility, and AutoCarry™ is included to further boost productivity.
Cat AccuGrade (O) is a dealer-installed aftermarket grade-control system that provides increased grading versatility and the ability to scale capacity to changing needs, providing a choice of lasers for 2D flat-plane and slope work, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) control for complex 3D cuts and contours, and/or systems using a Universal Total Station (UTS) for fine and finish grading.
Cat AccuGrade Ready Option
Cat AccuGrade Ready Option (ARO) (O) allows you to easily install or upgrade to Cat AccuGrade 2D and 3D grade-control systems to add versatility and resale value to your machine.

Optimize your machineLearn More
The Caterpillar elevated sprocket design helps protect major components from harsh impacts and provides a modular design that is convenient to service. Choose Heavy Duty undercarriage for aggressive applications like land clearing, side-slopes or rocky terrain. Or, choose SystemOne™ undercarriage that is designed to work and wear as a system for longer life and lower costs in many applications. An XL Fine Grading arrangement option is also offered configured for even more precise grading accuracy.
L-shaped push arms give you an advantage over diagonal brace designs by bringing the blade closer to the machine for better balance, maneuverability and blade penetration. The design also gives you lateral stability and better cylinder positions for constant pryout capability regardless of blade height. Semi-Universal, Straight and Angle blades feature strong box section design to stand up to the most severe applications. Heavy moldboard construction, hardened bolt-on cutting edges and end bits add strength and durability. A narrow blade and push arms are offered on the D6T XL to keep transport width below 3 meters.
The Variable Pitch Angle Tilt (VPAT) blade allows you to hydraulically adjust lift, angle and tilt for precise results. The VPAT blade is wider to take on a variety of applications so you can use your D6T for spreading material, finish grading, side casting, V-ditching and backfilling. The VPAT blade can be angled for easy shipping.
To help you match your D6T to the task at hand, choose a multi-shank ripper, winch, drawbar or rear counterweight.

Ease of Service
Like all Cat machines, the D6T is designed to help you get routine service done quickly and efficiently so you can get to work. New, larger engine compartment doors and a lower panel that can be removed without tools gives you easy access to internal components and routine service points. Heavy-duty hinged radiator grill doors have a bolt-on design so you can get to the fan and front side of the cooling package. An optional high speed oil change attachment can make servicing even faster. The Ground Level Service Center gives you quick, easy access to the hour meter, battery disconnect, secondary engine shutdown, DEF purge indicator and optional lighting switches.
An optional refueling pump, accessible from ground level, is designed to make refueling in the field safer and faster. The pump refuels at 50 L/min and includes an automatic shut-off. (Not available in all areas.)
