Performance and efficiency
Powered by the impressive CAT C32 Acert Engine, the Caterpillar 854K Dozer is the largest in the Cat wheel dozer line. The Acert Engine is the same one that powers Cat’s large dozer range, boasting a performance of full rated net power of 676 kW at 1,750 rpm with a high torque rise of 30%. The 12-cylinder, four-stroke design delivers optimum performance. Talking of torque – lower your cost per ton by harnessing the power of advanced ICTC (impeller clutch torque converter) and RCS (rimpull control system) for modulated rimpull.
This robust structure is designed to achieve high performance against the toughest loading conditions.
Reducing operator fatigue and increasing productivity are top priorities when designing machinery like the Caterpillar 854K Wheel Dozer. That’s why Cat have incorporated a range of smart systems, including:
- The VIMSTM 3G (Vital Information Management System) electronic control – a completely integrated module allows for multiple operators to set up profiles to decrease transition time between operators.
- STICTM Control System – the Steering and Transmission Integrated Control System offers maximum responsiveness and control, combining directional selection, gear selection and steering into a single lever.
- Minestar – utilise a range of technologies that are designed to allow operators to manage every aspect of fleet assignment and condition monitoring.
