Caterpillar, Irving, Texas, has two technology package upgrades for its medium dozer line. Formerly ARO with Assist, the Cat Assist with ARO (attachment ready option) suite of features will be included as a standard feature on Cat® D4, D5, D6, D6 XE, and D7 models starting early this year, the company said. Additionally, a new Cat Grade with 3D Ready option provides more flexibility for customers upgrading to Cat Grade with 3D on D4, D5 and D6 dozer models.
Now standard, Cat Assist with ARO ensures that every new Cat D4-D7 dozer comes equipped with the suite of Assist features that can be upgraded to Cat Grade 3D. These features include: stable blade, traction control, auto carry, blade load monitor, slope assist™, steer assist and ARO.
Cat Grade with 3D uses a GPS signal to automatically adjust blade lift and tilt movements. The new Cat Grade with 3D Ready option consists of all the hardware required for the 3D system and comes installed and tested from the factory, the company said.
