The new Cat® D5 offers superior performance and the broadest choice of easy-to-use technology features to help you get the most from your bulldozer. Nimble and responsive, it has power for dozing and finesse for grading. A fully automatic transmission gives you seamless acceleration, so you can get the job done quickly. At 170 hp and an operating weight range of 37,875 to 42,263 lbs, the new D5 dozer replaces the renowned D6N.
The update from D6N to D5 is part of an effort to make all Cat dozer model names simpler. Over the next couple of years, the Cat dozer range will be renamed from smallest to largest – D1 to D11 – with one model per size class and no more letter modifiers like “N,” “K,” “T.”
Next Generation Value
The D5 elevates the performance of the predecessor D6N with more weight and horsepower, improved steering capability and a long list of technology offerings to help operators get more work done in less time.
A fully automatic 3-speed transmission with lock-up clutch offers faster cycle times, as well as optimal power and fuel efficiency. The automatic transmission, steering improvements and enhanced power train controls offer new levels of steering performance and control.
The completely redesigned cab raises the standard in comfort and productivity. Operators will find more space, multiple seat and control adjustments for optimal comfort and a new, easy-to-use 10-in (254-mm) touchscreen operator interface. A standard High Definition rearview camera shows prominently in the main display. Overall visibility is enhanced with about 15% more cab glass area, plus a steeper hood angle that provides 30% better forward visibility to the blade and work site.
Unprecedented Technology Choices
Technology offerings on the D5 are led by updated, factory integrated Cat GRADE with 3D. Advanced Inertial Measuring Units (IMU) provide greater speed and accuracy without position sensing cylinders. Smaller antennas are integrated into the cab roof for even better protection and GPS receivers are mounted inside so they can be secured by locking the cab doors. A more intuitive GRADE operator interface works like a smart phone, making it easy for operators to pick up quickly. Android OS platform allows installation of custom apps for more versatility. AutoCarry™ is included with GRADE with 3D to automate blade lift to maintain desired blade load, improving load consistency and reducing track slip.
Additional GRADE technologies include:
In addition to GRADE features, simple on-board technologies help with top performance and quality grades. Blade Load Monitor gives real-time feedback on current vs. optimal blade load to help optimize pushing capacity. Traction Control detects track slip and temporarily reduces track power to allow the operator to adjust blade load and limit track slip. Second generation Stable Blade works seamlessly with operator blade inputs for smoother surfaces when grading manually.
Cat LINK telematics technology helps take the complexity out of managing job sites – by gathering data generated by equipment, materials, and people – and serving it up in customizable formats.
Enhanced Power Train Control
The D5 helps make steering and slope work easier with advanced controls that automatically manage the power train and brakes. There are no extra operator inputs to think about – the built-in features just work in the background.
The D5 is available in Standard or Low Ground Pressure (LGP) configurations, with either a push arm or Variable Power Angle Tilt (VPAT) blade. A folding VPAT blade is available to help meet regional transport width requirements. Waste, Forestry/Land Clearing and Fire Dozer configurations offer specialized factory-installed guarding and other features to help take on the toughest applications.
