New Bulldozer Model Moves More Material with Higher Fuel Efficiency
The D10T2is available with two variations of the Cat C27 engine: one is U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final certified, and the other is equivalent to U.S. EPA Tier 2 standards. Both engine configurations produce 600 net hp in forward gears and 722 hp in reverse gears (447/538 kW). The engine controller automatically adjusts power output based on the direction of travel. With the new system, the D10T2has about 20% more power in reverse compared to its predecessor model. The result is faster cycle times and greater productivity in certain applications.
Enhanced AutoShift (EAS)—a new standard feature—improves fuel efficiency and productivity by automatically selecting the optimal gear and engine speed combination based on power train load and desired ground speed. EAS functionality combined with the increased power in reverse enhances productivity when backing up slopes.
Another new feature, Adaptive Load Select, enhances Autocarry by automatically adjusting blade load based on operating conditions, such as underfoot conditions and track wear. Similarly, the new Automatic Ripper Control monitors speed and automatically adjusts engine speed and ripper depth to minimize track slip. A new blade control system automatically guides the blade to the desired design contours, and is integrated with Autocarry to sense and automatically control the load of the blade for improved performance and efficient blade loading applications.
