In 1980 the D9L was introduced, a tractor that kept the line of bulldozers going strong. It was equipped with a Cat 3412 direct injection engine. This unit was turbocharged 12-cylinder which produced 460 flywheel horsepower. The standard version had oil-cooled disc brakes and clutches. This legendary machine was the first of the D9 series to use the elevated final drives, first introduced in the D10, raising the undercarriage and lessening the strain and shock loads to the drive sprocket, as it no longer sat near the ground. Manufactured exclusively in the United States, there were multiple modifications during its brief history, such as a crank driven radiator fan, higher engine side guards, and pressure applied steering clutches.
