Powerful Productivity

The Cat® D8T dozer has a long history of best-in-class versatility and productivity. Because it excels across a wide range of dozing tasks, customers choose D8T dozers for everything from dozing, ripping, scraper work and land clearing to rough finish grading.  Durable construction combined with the C15 ACERT engine technology provides a superior performance that keeps material moving with the reliability and low operating costs you expect from Cat tractors.  And with features designed for even greater comfort, productivity and fuel efficiency, today's D8T does even more to help you meet your business objectives.

PipeLine Machinery International (PLM) introduces a custom equipment solution for the pipeline industry - the Cat D8T LGP 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.

D8T LGP Features

Quality & Reliability.  The D8T LGP 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.
