Engine/Power Train Integration
Combining the electronic engine control with the Caterpillar electronic transmission control allows these critical power train components to work more intelligently.
By communicating, these components work to optimize overall power train performance, reliability and component life for reduced power train operating cost.
Cat Data Link
The Cat data link electronically connects the engine and transmission control to provide these benefits.
The electronic engine and transmission controls provide enhanced diagnostic capability.
Superior cooling in the most demanding work conditions.
Advanced Modular Cooling System (AMOCS) utilizes an exclusive two pass cooling system and increased cooling surface area to provide significantly more cooling capacity than conventional systems.
The servicing of the AMOCS can be performed without tilting the radiator guard.
Two pass cooling system circulates coolant from the sectioned bottom tank up through one side of the cooling element and down through the other side returning it to the bottom tank.
The cooling elements are individual core modules that are connected to a sectioned bottom tank.
Demand Control Fan
Engine Control Module (ECM) regulates engine fan speed through a multi-disc fan clutch.
Designed for comfort and ease of operation.
Clear panoramic view.
Comfortable, non-tiring operation.

Caterpillar D10R Monitoring System has 3 display sections.
Throttle rocker switch replaces the throttle lever, simplifying operation.
Implement Control Lever Restraints
Implement control lever restraints, when engaged, prevent inadvertent movement of control lever.
A rocker switch replaces the throttle lever, simplifying operation.
Electronic Steering and Transmission Controls
Combines steering, machine direction and gear selection into a control system which can be operated with one hand for enhanced operator comfort and increased productivity.
Finger Tip Controls (FTC)
Finger Tip Controls (FTC) are clustered for easy, one-handed operation to the operator's left.
Electronic Clutch and Brake (ECB) steering system consists of two small levers which send signals that control the steering valve.
Allows Precise Work
ECB System allows the operator to work more precisely in close areas, around structures, obstacles, grade stakes, other machines or on fine grades.
Adjustable operator comfort.
Machine direction is controlled by a pivoting knob which can be actuated by the thumb of the left hand.
Gear selection is made by two buttons to the right of the machine direction knob.
Parking brake switch electronically locks ECB system.
Engineered to provide durability and the solid support necessary for maximum production and service life.
Mainframe strength. The D10R mainframe is built to absorb high impact shock loads and twisting forces.
Frame rails are full box section, designed to keep components rigidly aligned.
Heavy steel castings give added strength to the main case, equalizer bar saddle, front cross member and tag-link trunnion.
The top and bottom rails are continuous rolled sections, with no machining or welding to provide superior mainframe durability.
The main case elevates the final drives well above the ground level work area to protect them from impact loads, abrasion and contaminants.
Track Roller Frame Alignment
A pivot shaft and pinned equalizer bar maintain track roller frame alignment.
Tag-link construction brings the blade closer to the machine for more precise dozing and load control.
Tag-link design provides solid lateral stability and better cylinder positions for constant pryout independent of blade height.
The Caterpillar elevated sprockets are designed for better machine balance and component life.
Suspended undercarriage design absorbs impact loads to reduce the shock loads transferred to the undercarriage.
Bogie suspension conforms more closely to the ground to provide more ground contact, especially in hard, uneven terrain.
Roller frames are tubular, to resist bending and twisting, with added reinforcement where operating loads are the highest.
Sealed and lubricated track. Permanently coats the track pin with a sealed-in lubricant, minimizing metal-to-metal contact.
Work Tool Attachments
A variety of attachments provides the flexibility to match the machine to the job.
The 10SU blade and the 10U blade make full use of the D10R's power.
