The 824G brings new standards of productivity, performance, durability, serviceability and operator comfort to the 820 family of machines. The smooth, clean lines of the new cab and the stylish downsloped hood give the G-series machines a sleek, modern appearance.
Power Train Components
Cat power train delivers top performance and durability in tough applications.
The six-cylinder, turbocharged and aftercooled 3406C Engine is one of the most developed and proven engines offered by Caterpillar.
The Caterpillar planetary, power shift transmission features heavy-duty components to handle the toughest jobs.
Heavy-duty axles feature stronger gears and bearing in both the differentials and final drives for increased durability.
Oil-enclosed, multiple-disc brakes feature fewer parts, better heat rejection and improved serviceability.
Well-balanced hydraulics deliver precise low-effort control and trouble-free operation.
A revolutionary hydraulic system provides low-effort implement control. Armrest-mounted levers send electrical signals to a pivot valve mounted on the front frame.
Command Control Steering
Low-effort, Command Control steering is another result of innovative design. A new mechanical feedback system and redesigned valve ratio provide quarter-turn side-to-side steering.
Positive-displacement hydraulic pumps perform with high efficiency and great reliability. For improved serviceability, all hydraulic pumps are mounted on a single pump drive.
Caterpillar's XT-3 and XT-5 Hose
Caterpillar's XT-3 and XT-5 hose, O-ring face seals and large capacity lift cylinder top off the hydraulic system, delivering the performance and durability owners expect.
Easy-to-use, low effort controls.
Operator Control Benefits
One of the most exciting benefits of the 824G is the dramatic reduction in operator motion effort provided by Command Control steering, integrated transmission controls and fully hydraulic brakes.
Command Control Steering
Command Control steering allows one hand operation of steering and transmission controls.
Implement Control Lever
Low-effort implement control lever requires very low operator effort and reduced travel.
Integrated Transmission Controls
Integrated transmission controls are part of the steering control design, providing one hand operation.
Dual-pedal braking lets the left pedal function as a brake. The right pedal functions as a regular brake.
Electronic Autoshift Control
Electronic Autoshift control lets the operator choose manual or automatic shifting.
Transmission Neutralizer Lockout
Transmission neutralizer lockout lets the operator shut the neutralizer off, allowing the left pedal to work as a brake only.
Comfort and control - top-quality operator station will help maximize productivity.
Internal ROPS improves visibility and styling, giving the 824G a sleek new look.
Larger windows improve visibility in all directions.
Downsloped hood also contribute to improved rearward visibility by allowing the operator to see objects on the ground closer to the machine.
Radio ready means this cab includes 12-volt converter, speakers, antenna, all wiring and brackets for entertainment or communications radio installation.
Right and Left Rear-Hinged Doors
Right and left rear-hinged doors provide a walk-through operator's station.
Non-metallic floor is rustproof and slopes to assist water drainage and clean-out.
Reduced sound level is the result of several new designs.
Increased storage space provides room for a lunch cooler, a thermos, a cup, coat hook and other personal items.
Caterpillar Contour Series seat is 6-way adjustable, providing comfort and support.
824G Monitoring System provides gauges, tachometer/speedometer and 3-level warning to provide full time monitoring of key functions.
Improved ventilation ducts and vents, in better locations, provide more air flow to the operator and the windows. Post-mounted vents provide air to the rear window.
Optional air-conditioning uses blended air for immediate temperature changes, clears windows with ease and improves operator comfort.
Multiple box-section construction with heat treated moldboard and DH-2 steel edges and end bits for long life.
The S-Blade does light production including dozing and spreads fill, backfills, stockpiles, charges hoppers, and cleans up around shovels and trucks.
Lever at operator's right controls dozer lift and tip.
Complete unit consists of blade, push arms, trunnion mounting, dozer-length skid plate with replaceable wear plates, end bits, hydraulic lines guard and hydraulic blade cylinders.
