Dozers Digging Deeper for Construction

Each piece of equipment offers unique functionality on the construction jobsite—and now some are coming with a few high-tech upgrades. Case in point: dozers. This type of equipment is getting an upgrade—in more ways than one.

For instance, the Cat D8T dozer has new features that will improve productivity, while saving time and money for construction companies.

On this piece of equipment, a new patented Performance Cutting Edges deliver a cutting action that increases blade load mass by up to 25 percent, so the machine can move more material per pass. These edges allow a specific dozer to work quicker and even more efficiently. Performance cutting edges dig deeper and enhance blade control, load retention, and traction.

But that’s not all. The new features just keep on coming. To reduce maintenance downtime, enhance safety, and facilitate machine clean-out, contractors can opt for Powered Bottom Guards on the underside of the D8T.

While this is one new piece of construction equipment, there are many dozer options available to contractors—many with high-tech features.
