The heavy-duty hinged radiator guard protects the cooling system.Tilt Cylinder Lines Guards
The tilt cylinder lines guards help protect hydraulic lines from contact damage, while maintaining hose flexibility.Crankcase (belly) Guards
The crankcase (belly) guards serve a dual purpose. They help prevent contact damage to vital power train components, and help keep debris out of the power train compartments. Note: The D8T features an attachment guard that can be electrically raised and lowered.Chassis Guards
The chassis guards help protect the engine compartment by deflecting debris from rising upward along the chassis.Pivot Shaft Seal Guards
The pivot shaft seal guards help prevent debris from entering and damaging the Duo-Cone® seals as well as protecting the bolts on the pivot shaft seal retainers.Idler Seal Guards
The idler seal guards help keep wire, fishing line, strapping, etc., from wrapping around and damaging the Duo-Cone seals.Final Drive Seal Guards
The final drive seal guards help prevent wire, nylon strapping, etc., from wrapping around and damaging the Duo-Cone seals. The outer guard is now stationary, thicker, and has increased hardness, all of which help prevent excessive wear from debris.Seal Guard Design
This design offers superior protection to the seal. Debris would have to make four 90° turns, penetrate the packing material, and then make two additional 90° turns.
Debris Resistant Features
Additional modifications enhance productivity and help prevent damage.
Rear, Tank-mounted Lights
The rear, tank-mounted lights are relocated on the ROPS, which removes the lights from the concentrated debris environment to help protect them from damage. Combinations vary depending on each model.Front Lights
The front lights are mounted on top of the bulldozer lift cylinders allowing them to project light over the trash rack and keep the lights above the concentrated debris environment for longer service life.Heavy-duty Steps and Handles
The heavy-duty steps and handles are manufactured from plate steel and solid rod to withstand the rigors of landfill operation.Additional Sealing
To help eliminate debris entry into areas of the machine additional sealing is provided. Key areas include: engine enclosures, platforms, hydraulic tank, ROPS support, battery box, striker bar box, and rear case opening.High-capacity Alternator
The high-capacity 95-amp alternator provides additional power required for electrical accessories such as supplemental lights and communications and entertainment radios. The ducting helps prevent debris from entering into the alternator.Raised Prescreener
Raised prescreener helps reduce the likelihood of airborne paper or plastics plugging the air intake. It provides a larger air inlet. Part of standard waste handling modification when turbine precleaner is not ordered.
These options must be ordered in addition to the basic Waste Handling Arrangement.
The clamshell guard provides a non-rotating guard installed over the final drives to help prevent wire wrap. The guard includes inspection plates.Radiator (AMOCS)
The AMOCS radiator utilizes an exclusive two pass cooling system and increased cooling surface area to provide significantly more cooling capacity than conventional systems. A trash core radiator is available with six fins per inch, replacing the standard nine fins per inch.Hydraulic Reversing Fan
The fan system automatically reverses the fan at preset intervals, purging debris from the radiator and engine compartment. The operator can manually purge at anytime. The fan is controlled by the engine electrical control module.Caterpillar Turbine Air Precleaner
The Caterpillar turbine provides improved engine air filtration by using the OPTIMAX dual-stage precleaner powered by the engine's intake and exhaust airflows. Intake air is spun by a flow driven impeller. Debris stratifies along the outer wall and is ejected back into the environment. Remaining contaminates are collected and removed by a secondary scavenger system, allowing only precleaned air to continue to the engine's air filter.
These options must be ordered in addition to the basic Waste Handling Arrangement.
The enhanced cab provides higher cab pressurization for improved cab air quality in dust and debris-laden applications. Includes a powered precleaner, with a high efficiency filter, which reduces system maintenance intervals.Engine Enclosures
The engine enclosures consist of perforated hood and side panels. The enclosures help prevent airborne materials from entering the engine compartment and help reduce radiator plugging, which can cause cooling system problems. Note: If the sound suppression arrangement is ordered, the perforated side panels are replaced with solid doors and the perforated hood is replaced with larger rectangular perforations.Hydraulic and Fuel Tank guard
The hydraulic and fuel guard helps protect implement hydraulic oil tank, battery box and fuel tank.Rear Striker Bars
The rear striker bars incorporate a rigid drawbar and housing with large access doors for storage on machines not equipped with rippers. The rear striker bars are counterweight-ready in case additional rear weight is needed. For machines with rippers, striker bars mount on ripper frame. Note: The D10T uses rear counter-weights instead of a housing with doors.Supplemental Cylinder Mounted Lights
The supplemental cylinder mounted lights (four front) are repositioned from the fender/ openings to the top of the cylinders. The fender openings are covered with plates to prevent debris from entering. Chose from either Halogen or HID (high intensity discharge).ROPS-mounted Air Conditioner Condenser and Fans
The ROPS-mounted air conditioner and fans are relocated from the engine compartment to the ROPS. • Moving the condenser and fans away from the radiator reduces the concentration of debris and plugging. This relocation also increases the cooling capacity of the machine for operation in higher temperatures. Note: The ROPS-mounted position raises the height of the machine an additional 30.5 cm (12 in).Laminated Thermal Shields
The laminated thermal shields cover the exhaust stack inside the compartment, hot-side of the turbocharger, and the exhaust manifold. These shields reduce surface temperatures well below the flash point of most common combustibles encountered.
Features for peak performance. Several additional options are recommended to assist in matching your site requirements.
Caterpillar Landfill Blades
The Caterpillar landfill blades increase the dozing capacity in trash and help prevent material from spilling over the blade and entering the radiator. Wear plates are available and are recommended when working in highly abrasive materials.Front Striker Bars
The front striker bars angled design prevents debris from riding up the track and damaging the fenders or fuel and hydraulic tanks.Fast Fuel System
The optional fast fuel system, with positive fuel shut-off to prevent fuel spillage, can decrease downtime.Black Painted Hood, Cylinders, and Back of Blade
The black painted hood, cylinders, and back of blade reduces glare from lights while operating at night and while operating in direct sunlight.Hydraulic Rippers
Hydraulic rippers are available as single or multi-shank to penetrate tough material fast and rip thoroughly.Computer Aided Earthmoving System (CAES)
The Computer Aided Earthmoving System (CAES) is a high technology earthmoving tool that allows machine operators to achieve maximum landfill compaction, desired grade/slope, and conserve and ensure even distribution of valuable cover soil with increased accuracy. This state-of-the-art machine control system delivers real-time elevation, compaction and grade control information to machine operators on an in-cab display. By monitoring grade and compaction progress, operators have the information they need to maximize the efficiency of the machine, resulting in proper drainage and optimum airspace utilization.Beacon Light
