Lean, Mean, Ripping Machine
Caterpillar has become a household name. It is the world’s largest construction equipment manufacturer and was ranked #204 on the Global Fortune 500 list in 2020. Serving major industries like general construction, gas, mining, oil, marine, the American company is an industry leader in innovation and technology, offering some of the finest equipment in the world.
Caterpillar, or ‘CAT’ as it is more commonly known, has a diverse range of products, including excavators, wheel loaders, haul trucks, graders, and tractors. Apprentice mechanics and operators are generally trained on the CAT machines, which is perhaps one of the reasons why they have become so popular.
One of their most highly regarded pieces of equipment is the Dozer. This lean, mean, ripping machine with its enormous blade fitted to the front is seen to be one of the more intimidating pieces of equipment on a site.
Why should you invest in Caterpillar dozers?
Dozers are generally used for demolition work, using their massive size and claw-like metal plates to push brick, soil, sand, dirt, and other heavy materials from one place to another. They’re also commonly used for land clearing. These innovative bull-dozers can take care of most tasks in a single swoop, uprooting everything in the way including unwanted trees, shrubs, and debris.
If you’re planning to hire advanced equipment for your next project, here’s a quick rundown of Caterpillar’s dozers and why you should invest in them:
Dozer Models by Caterpillar—Which one is right for you?
The D8T bulldozer is perfect for those looking to increase productivity without sacrificing costs. It allows operators to gain maximum efficiency without burning too much fuel. It’s also equipped with a four-speed transmission, complete with superior technologies making the experience worth investing in.
The D8T is very easy to operate, as it comes with fully automatic equipment with adjustable manuals. It comes with innovative added technology, such as the Engine Idle Shutdown Timer. If the tractor is accidentally left in power, the machine will automatically shut down during idle time.
The D8T is also a crowd favourite due to its built-in safety features. It boasts rear vision cameras, with cylinder mounted mirrors to enhance visibility. There are also handles, guardrails, and carefully planned steps available, ensuring better and safer boarding.

There’s a cooling system built specifically for high debris environments, keeping the equipment safe and easy to clean in the event of a blockage. It also comes with weather features, such as reversible fans and batteries for colder areas.
