THE new Cat D10T2 Dozer builds on the proven D10T with refinements to its power train, automated controls and structures. Cat says the result is high productivity with superior fuel efficiency, reliable operation with long-lived structures, and enhanced access for service technicians and operators.
The new Caterpillar D10T2 Dozer.
The D10T2 uses the latest load sensing hydraulics technology combined with Cat advanced engine controls to maximize the amount of material moved for every drop of fuel burned. Improved filtration protects the fuel system, hydraulic system, and power train oil system to help ensure high reliability and minimal machine downtime.
Refined large structures, such as redesigned track roller frames, deliver longer service before rebuilds. Improved access and egress features enhance safety and productivity of technicians and operators, and optional powered access systems and platforms enable configuring the D10T2 for the site.
Caterpillar offers the D10T2 with two variations of the Cat C27 engine with ACERT Technology. One is US EPA Tier 4 Final certified and the other is capable of achieving emission levels equivalent to US EPA Tier 2 standards. Both configurations produce net power of 447kW in forward gears and 7538kW in reverse. The engine controller automatically adjusts power output based on direction of travel. With the new system, the D10T2 has about 20% more power in reverse.
The D10T2 continues the D10 legacy as a highly productive machine in a variety of applications including mining, heavy construction and bulk materials handling.
The D10T2 employs load-sensing implement hydraulics to boost fuel efficiency and machine performance. The system automatically and continuously adjusts implement hydraulic power and delivers the right levels of flow and pressure to get the job done as efficiently as possible.
Enhanced AutoShift (EAS) is a new standard feature. EAS improves fuel efficiency and productivity by automatically selecting the optimal gear and engine speed combination based on power train load and desired ground speed.
A number of new, optional electronic systems are available to assist the operator. Proven on the D10T, the optional Autocarry system provides automatic blade control during the carry segment of the dozing cycle by measuring ground speed and track slip with a robust Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver. Autocarry changes blade position automatically to keep track slip at optimum level. A new feature is Adaptive Load Select, which enhances Autocarry by automatically adjusting blade load based on operating conditions, such as underfoot conditions and track wear. The new Automatic Ripper Control monitors speed with GNSS and automatically adjusts engine speed and ripper depth to minimize track slip.
