The Caterpillar D4G (LGP) Track-Type Tractor was introduced in 2001. It was manufactured in Japan only.
The D4G has a 3064 engine producing 80 flywheel horsepower (FWHP). It comes standard with sealed and lubricated tracks (SALT).
It is available in two configurations: the standard model has a track gauge of 59 inches (150 cm) with 18-inch (46-cm) single-grouser shoes; the Low Ground Pressure (LGP) configuration has a 66-inch (168-cm) track gauge with 25-inch (64-cm) single-grouser shoes. Standard configuration tractors have a CFN or HYD serial number prefix. LGP configuration tractors have an FDC or TLX prefix.
Production of CFN and FDC ended in 2003. They were replaced by the HYD and TLX units, which have turbocharged engines. Based on data from the sales database of Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, it is estimated that more than 400 Caterpillar D4G crawler tractors have been produced.
The Caterpillar D4G (LGP) Track-Type Tractor was introduced in 2001 as the replacement for the Caterpillar D4E.
