I now own the Caterpillar D9T Dozer in the Standard version with number #71.
The Caterpillar D9T Dozer was introduced in 2004 as the replacement for the Caterpillar D9R Dozer.
The Caterpillar D9T has a Caterpillar C18 engine with Advanced Combustion Emissions Reduction Technology (ACERT) and Air-to-Air After Cooler (ATAAC) producing 410 flywheel horsepower (FWHP). It comes standard with 24-inch (61-cm) shoes, torque converter, differential steering, and a three speeds forward, three reverse powershift transmission. It is also equipped universal and straight-universal dozer blades.
Engineered for demanding work. The durable construction of the Caterpillar D9T is well suited for tough working conditions. Combined with the Caterpillar C18 engine for superior performance, fuel economy and meeting emission targets with the help of ACERT Technology, keeps material moving with the reliability and low operating costs you may expect from each Caterpillar Track-Type Tractor.
The Caterpillar D9T Dozer was manufactured in the USA only, with a "RJS" serial number prefix.
