Caterpillar’s 824K wheel dozer features engineering refinements in its powertrain, operator station and structures, and in features that enhance safety, serviceability and machine management, according to Caterpillar. With a net power rating of 405 hp and a maximum operating weight of 74,966 lbs., the 824K is available with six blade configurations ranging in capacity from 6.6- to customize it for production dozing, stockpile dozing or clean-up work. The machine’s Cat C15 ACERT engine features an electronically controlled fuel delivery system, an engine idle shutdown system to conserve fuel by limiting idling time, and a delayed shutdown feature to ensure the engine is not stopped until operating temperatures are stabilized.
