Cat Introduces D6R XW
Caterpillar now offers the D6R track-type tractors in the XW configuration.
The D6R XW features an intermediate track gauge and higher horsepower than the
standard D6R and D6R XL. As a result, the D6R XW has great flotation and
stability, and is more productive in soft underfoot conditions. The tractor can
handle more applications; thereby extending the work season. Although productive
in dry and hard ground conditions, it's built for soft ground. The D6R XW has a
wider track gauge measuring 80 inches. The wider gauge allows for using wider
track shoes to reduce ground pressure and boost flotations. For more
information, you can contact your local Caterpillar dealer or visit the Cat
website at www.cat.com.
