Power Train

The Caterpillar 3116 engine, optimally matched with torque converter and power shift transmission, provides an excellent balance between efficiency and power.

Cat 3116 Engine

Caterpillar 3116 engine performs at full-rated net power. High horsepower, combined with high torque rise, give the D6M the ability to doze through tough material. Plus, this engine meets all the latest emission regulations around the world.


Turbocharging improves response and performance at low to medium engine speeds.

Direct Unit Injection Fuel System

Direct Unit Injection Fuel System eliminates external high pressure fuel lines and provides excellent control of injection timing with individually metered, high-pressure, direct-injection of fuel.

Resilient engine mounting

Drive train components

Drive train components are matched and balanced to deliver exceptional performance and durability.


The Caterpillar elevated sprocket undercarriage arrangements are disigned for better balance, performance and component life.

Final drives and associated power train components

Final drives and associated power train components are raised above the work area, isolating them from ground-induced impact loads, as well as implement and roller frame alignment loads, extending power train component life.

Sprocket position

Sprocket position keeps sprocket teeth, bushings and final drives away from the abrasive materials and moisture, resulting in longer final drive gear and seal life.

High flange improved track rollers

High flange improved track rollers (optional) combined with center or full length roller guard attachments greatly improve track guiding for demanding side slope conditions.

XL (Extra Long) arrangement

XL (Extra Long) arrangement features forward idler position providing additional track on ground for finish grading applications. Wide gauge for enhanced side slope stability.

Track options

All tracks are sealed and lubricated.

Shoe options

Electronic Clutch and Brake steering system

Electronic Clutch and Brake steering system allows the operator to work more precisely in close areas, around structures, obstacles, grade stakes and other machines.

Machine Direction

Machine direction is controlled by a pivoting knob which can be actuated by the thoub of the left hand.

Gear selection is made

Gear selection is made by two buttons to the right of the machine direction knob. The top (up-shift) button shifts the machine transmission to the next higher gear while the bottom (down-shift) button shifts to the next lower gear.
