Cat D8T LGP Dozer

PipeLine Machinery International (PLM) introduces a custom equipment solution for the pipeline industry - the Cat® D8T LGP dozer with a custom build angle blade and winch attachment. This Tier 4 Final dozer is revolutionary because it is purpose-built to move heavy loads in soft soil conditions so often associated with pipeline construction. With a ground pressure of 8.4 psi, the D8T LGP moves substantially more material than smaller machines in a LGP configuration with a much lighter footprint.

Features & Information

D8TLGP-400pix

Quality & Reliability.  The Cat D8T LGP dozer with angle blade attachment has the features and quality you can rely on as demonstrated in the standard D8T track-type tractor.  This model is as a result of listening to the voice of the customer and discovering a need to move large amounts of dirt off to the side of the right-of-way and would work well in the soft, and sometimes wet, terrain native to a variety of pipeline project environments.

Low Ground Pressure.  A ground pressure of 8.4 psi moves substantially more material than smaller machines in a LGP configuration - with a much lighter footprint than the standard design. 

LGP A Blade.  The purpose-built LGP angle blade allows you to move large amounts of materials in the direction you want it to go without the heavy weight of a large machine and has a capacity of 7.6 yd 3

Winch Configuration.  The D8T LGP with angle blade is outfitted with a winch configuration appropriate for this model machine.
