Infused with industry-leading technology, Cat said the durable D10 Dozer burns less fuel, increases productivity and improves uptime. Featuring a stator clutch torque converter and load-sensing hydraulics, the new design is up to 6% more efficient than the Cat D10T2. Its combination of improved technology, longer component life, extended oil changes and increased serviceability reduces maintenance and repair costs up to 8%, helping the new D10 deliver industry-leading low cost of ownership.

The new D10 is powered by the Cat C27 engine, which offers after-treatment solutions to meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage V as well as Tier 2 equivalent emissions standards for meeting the needs of the global market. Maximizing material moved per liter of fuel, the C27 switches power settings based on travel direction to offer up to 20% more power in reverse, reducing cycle times. In addition to delivering productivity gains of up to 3%, the new D10 offers up to a 4% fuel consumption advantage over the D10T2 and up to 10% over the D10T. 

The dozer’s new torque converter design with stator clutch automatically frees up the stator when torque multiplication is not required, improving drivetrain efficiency for reduced fuel consumption. During high-load and retarding conditions, the stator clutch locks without the need for operator input. Load-sensing hydraulics deliver more power to the ground for increased responsiveness and added fuel efficiency. 

The new cab for the D10 not only creates a comfortable operating environment that lowers noise, vibration, stress and fatigue, it is an integrated electronic platform designed to maximize productivity. The operator’s new multicolor touchscreen display monitors machine performance and allows machine parameters to be quickly tailored to the application. 

Today’s innovative D10 leverages a range of onboard technologies and is future-ready to integrate tomorrow’s technology advancements. Standard with dual-tilt and automated blade assist, the machine reduces operator workload by automating blade movement to preset load, carry and spread positions. In addition, the dozer is customizable to site conditions with multiple optional technologies designed to increase productivity and efficiency.
