Outmaneuver every job you Tackle

A single lever joystick controls speed, direction and steering on Cat® D3C XL Series III Hystat Track-type Tractors. Full powerturn capability is made possible by maintaining power to both tracks at any ground speed or turning radius.

Power Train

A powerful six-cylinder Cat® 3046 engine and the productivity you need to increase your profitability.

Hystat Power Train System

The Hystat system is a high pressure, dual path, closed loop hydrostatic power train system. Each track is driven by a separate hydraulic circuit consisting of one variable-displacement piston-pump, connected by a Cat XT-6 hose.

Hystat Transmission

Dual-path, hydrostatic drive provides infinitely variable speeds up to 9.0 km/h (5.6 mph), forward or reverse.

Final Drives

Hystat System features double-reduction, with outboard planetary gear set, mounted independently of track frames to isolate them from machine weight and ground-induced shock loads. Externally mounted for easy maintenance and service.

3046 Engine

Smooth, responsive power, excellent fuel economy and lasting reliability. Designed specifically for small to medium size earthmoving machines.

Direct Injection Fuel System

Direct injection fuel system is adjustment free for reduced maintenance.

In-Cylinder Glow Plugs

In-cylinder glow plugs deliver dependable starts when operating in cold temperatures. Built-in temperature switch helps ensure lasting reliability.

Cooling System

A large diameter fan and full length, water-cooled cylinders, combined with excellent thermal efficiency, minimize heat rejection, prevent overheating and prolong engine life.

Cylinder Head

Cylinder head uses replaceable valve seal inserts, valve guides and a high quality composition steel laminated head gasket.

Aluminum Pistons

Aluminum pistons with a cast iron insert for increased durability under high compression loads. Pistons have two compression rings and an oil ring with a coiled expander.

Lubrication System

Lubrication system features an efficient, multiple-plate, water-cooled oil cooler to help prolong engine and lubricant life.

Hystat Control

A single joystick allows you to control speed, direction and steering, effortlessly.

Joystick Controls

The joystick is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably within the palm of your hand. Control effort is minimal, so much so that you might find yourself using your fingertips.


Single lever steering and direction control. Moving control lever left or right slows that track, causing the machine to turn smoothly in that direction with full power to both tracks.


The Hystat control allows the operator easy forward movement, reverse movement, and stopping capabilities. A Turtle/rabbit switch is available with the toggle switch on top of the joystick.

Operator Station

Visibility down to the cutting edge is excellent, controls are ergonomically designed and well positioned, and armrests are fully adjustable for optimum comfort and productivity.

Ergonomic Design

Ergonomically designed for your maximum comfort and productivity. Take the opportunity to work comfortably and productively, day-in and day-out.

Pressurized Cab

The pressurized cab is sealed to keep dust out and sound to a minimum, resulting in a quiet working environment.

Control Console

Control console is back-lighted and contains controls for cab temperature, fan speed, the front/rear window washers, and two-speed wipers.

Optional Caterpillar Contour Series Seat

An optional Caterpillar Contour Series seat, with a retractable seat belt, is the premium seat option and is designed for maximum comfort and fully-adjustable support.


Designed and built for unmatched versatility, durability, and strength. All D3C tractors are equipped with a durable Variable Pitch, Power Angle and Tilt (VPAT) blade.

VPAT Blade

VPAT blades are built with four full-width, box-section reinforcement cells for unmatched strength and durability, just like what you find on larger Cat dozers.

Adjustable Top Pitch Link

An adjustable top pitch link provides a solid link between the blade and the top of the tilt tower on the C-frame.

The Cutting Edge

The cutting edge is recessed into the blade's moldboard, providing a smooth transition from the cutting edge to the moldboard.


A deeper moldboard curvature increases material rolling action. Increases to moldboard thickness provide added dent resistance.


Large diameter cylinders provide plenty of force to angle/tilt the blade, even in tough dozing applications.

Guarded Hoses and Tubing

Guarded hoses and tubing are protected from rocks and debris, extending service life. Heavy-duty hoses and tubing meet critical strength and flexibility demands for increased reliability.


With soil conditions changing with each job you tackle, you need an undercarriage built for long wear life and low owning and operating costs. That's why D3C undercarriages are built with strong, durable components.

XL undercarriage

Track length is extended on extra long (XL) undercarriages for increased ground contact area, increased flotation, and for superior balance and finish grading performance. Shoe width: 406 mm (16").


More access and fewer maintenance requirements add up to unparalleled ease of service.

Remote Zerk Lube Fittings

Allows easy lubrication of C-frame pivot bearings. Additional zerk fitings have been added to all bulldozer pivot pins to provide long life and maintain tight linkage.

Removable Engine Enclosure

Removable engine enclosure has a built-in grip handle and provides access to vertically mounted, spin-on engine oil and fuel filters, SOS valve, and fuel priming pump.

Engine Oil Dipstick

Engine oil dipstick, oil fill and radiator fill are easily accessed through a hinged and lockable panel on top of the hood.

Increased Fuel Tank Capacity

Increased fuel tank capacities provide you with more work between refueling.

Combined Power Train and Hydraulic Oil Filters

Combined power train and hydraulic oil filters on Hystat models are vertically mounted for cleaner changes and are easily accessible by removing the rear panel. An SOS valve is conveniently installed on the filter base for sampling power train oil.

Fuel/water Separator

The fuel/water separator is accessed easily through a hinged door located at the rear of the machine.
