Cat® Medium Dozers, Cat Assist with ARO, Cat Grade 3D

The Cat D6 Dozer.

The Cat® Medium Dozers have received technology package upgrades.

  • The suite of Cat® Assist with ARO suite of features are now standard for Cat D4 – D7 dozers
  • New Cat Grade with 3D Ready option available for D4, D5 and D6 dozers
  • Changes reinforce D4 – D7 next generation dozers’ technology leadership

Caterpillar announces two technology package upgrades for its medium dozer line. Formerly ARO with Assist, Cat Assist with ARO suite of features will be included as a standard feature on Cat® D4, D5, D6, D6 XE and D7 models, starting from early 2024. 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 easily upgraded to Cat Grade 3D. These features include:

  • Stable Blade – finish dozing made easier
  • Traction Control – reduce track slip to minimise wear
  • Auto Carry – maximises blade loads
  • Blade Load Monitor – operator coaching for productivity
  • Slope Assist™ – holds blade angles with no GPS
  • Steer Assist – automatically keeps dozing straight
  • ARO – sensors (IMUs) on machine for GPS capability

Cat Grade with 3D uses a GPS signal to automatically adjust blade lift and tilt movements, so operators can get to design faster, save time, and reduce the cost of rework, labour and materials. 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 option includes onboard sensors, GNSS antennas and receivers, and a 10-inch (25.4-mm) touchscreen display. This allows the 3D Ready hardware to be quickly updated to a complete Grade with 3D system with the purchase of necessary licences through the Cat Dealer.
