With an operating weight of 110,225 lbs the Cat® D9 Dozer is a sleek versatile machine designed to be used in a variety of applications, such as ripping, production dozing, stockpiling, landfills, scraper pushing, winching, site maintenance, reclamation, and fleet support. Powered by a Tier 4 Final Cat® C18 engine the machine can be equipped with a number of blade options to meet site-specific needs. Features like the new stator clutch torque converter boost efficiency and reduce fuel usage (5% more efficient), automated blade assist (ABA) and ripper control reduce operator fatigue and track slip, and a number of other onboard technology solutions further increase efficiency and performance (up to 3% lower cost per cubic meter).

Nearly half of the large dozers Caterpillar® sells are D9 Dozers – and for good reason. They’re the smart choice for dozens of applications and environments thanks to unmatched reliability, long life and a wide range of application-specific blades. When equipped with a Universal blade the machine has a blade capacity of up to 21.7 cubic yards (17.8 cubic yards with Semi-Universal). Single shank, multi-shank, or winches can also be mounted to the rear depending on application needs.

The CCM 1:24 scale diecast models of this machine are a must have for any collector or Cat® D9 fan. With 2 different configurations produced, only very limited quantities of each still remain. Don’t miss your once in a lifetime opportunity to add one, or both, of these impressive machines to your model collection!
