The new high drive D7 dozer features more weight and horsepower to boost performance
Caterpillar has redesigned it D7 series dozer to be closer in productivity to the D8.
At 265 hp, and an operating weight of 29,776 kg, the new D7 dozer replaces the D7E. The new high drive machine weighs-in with about 1,800 more kilograms, an additional 30 hp and a 10 per cent larger blade.
“All of that is going to help us get a little bit more productivity out of this dozer, and be a little bit closer to the D8 in terms of its capabilities,” said Sam Meeker, Caterpillar’s product application specialist for dozers.
