The new D6K2 dozer is smarter and more efficient than ever.
The new D6K2 dozer is smarter and more efficient than ever. It comes equipped with standard Grade technologies like Slope Assist to make it easier for even less experienced operators to get more quality work done in less time. But intelligence is only part of the package – Eco Modes and a new power train deliver up to 17% more fuel efficiency, while providing superior maneuverability, faster steering response and greater capability to utilize full blade loads. This dozer also retains its optimal balance and undercarriage design for outstanding performance in finish grading applications. The D6K2 meets Tier 4 Final/Stage IV/Korea Tier 4 emission standards.

Powerful Drive Train
A Cat C4.4 ACERT engine with twin turbochargers is combined with a new hydrostatic transmission to give you improved fuel efficiency and the most power-dense drive train in its size class. The hystat transmission offers superior maneuverability, faster steering response and greater capability to utilize full blade loads.
Eco Modes optimize engine speed, while maintaining ground speed, saving up to 17% fuel in lighter blade load applications like finish grading.
Efficiency features reduce engine speed when idling, or shut the machine down after a specified time, to further save fuel and meet idling regulations. Engine Idle Shutdown shuts down engine after pre-set time to reduce idling and help save fuel.
New automatic traction control is standard and automatically reduces track slip in poor underfoot conditions, improving productivity and finish surface quality.
Updated cooling package allows more air flow, reducing fan speed for greater efficiency. Hydraulic demand fan automatically reduces fan speed in cooler conditions to help save fuel. An optional hydraulic reversing fan offers automatic or manual modes for changing direction to blow debris out of the radiator cores.

The D6K2 comes equipped with standard Cat Connect GRADE technologies to help you control the blade so you can get more quality work done in less time. Experienced operators can work more productively and less experienced operators can achieve better quality results more quickly. These features are integrated right into the machine at the factory – no additional hardware or software is required.
Cat Grade Control Slope Assist (S) helps operators more easily achieve the required main-fall and slope orientation of the blade by automatically maintaining pre-established blade angles for the grade. Finish up to 39% faster, with up to 68% better surface quality and using up to 82% less operator effort.*
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 (S) complements the operator’s blade-control input for attaining finish grades quicker with less effort.
Optional GRADE Technologies
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.
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.
