Looking for a dozer has a long history of outstanding versatility, productivity and resale value? Look no further than the new Cat® D8 dozer. Designed to excel across a wide range of heavy applications, including dozing, ripping, scraper work and land clearing to finish grading, the D8 dozer does even more to help you meet your business objectives. And with features designed for even greater comfort, productivity and fuel efficiency, the new D8 dozer takes the industry-leading performance that you’ve come to expect of Cat dozers to a new level. 

The Cat D8 dozer offers a range of performance features that help you save time and money. Its Cat C15 ACERT engine gives you the power, reliability and fuel economy to get the job done faster and more cost-effectively while the efficient use of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) delivers outstanding fluid efficiency. Performance is further increased with the larger semi-universal blade that enables you to move up to 13% more material per pass and the performance cutting edges which increase blade load mass by up to 25%. 

Further features incorporated into the Cat D8 include the enhanced differential steering that maintains full power to both tracks for best-in-class turning, even with a full blade load, and better load capacity, power and speed control in soft conditions. The D8 dozer also delivers more power to the ground, more efficiently with its use of a torque divider that sends 70% of engine torque through a converter and the remaining 30% through a direct drive shaft. Additionally, its load-sensing hydraulics continuously adjust hydraulic power based on the load to maximise work tool performance. 
 
With added features like a quieter cab, adjustable armrests and a heated/ventilated seat option, operator comfort and priority have been prioritised with the D8 dozer. Further operator features include the low-effort electro-hydraulic controls to help operators get precise work tool control and work more comfortably and the tiller-style control that enables more precise work in tight spaces. Additionally, this best-in-class dozer delivers greater traction that translates into less slippage, better balance across all terrains and a smoother ride.

Tough from the inside out, the Cat D8 dozer stands up to the most severe applications with its high-tensile strength steel frame, strong box-section design and heavy moldboard construction. The Cat D8 features a fully-suspended undercarriage that provides more ground contact and a tough mainframe that’s designed to absorb high-impact shock loads and twisting forces across aggressive applications like land clearing and ripping, along with environments like uneven or rocky terrain and side-slopes. 

Backed by our extensive service coverage, flat rate scheduled servicing and 24/7 parts availability, Hastings Deering is the right choice for your heavy equipment needs and offers the Cat D8 dozer for sale at our local branches across Queensland and the Northern Territory.
