Video: Cat D6R LGP swamp dozer
While investigating a toxic mine remediation site on NSW’s mid-north coast, Ron Horner came across a ‘swampy’, a Cat D6R LGP swamp dozer with big, wide tracks to work in soft mud.
Powered by a 140kW turbocharged Cat C9 diesel, the D6R LGP swamp dozer is a machine specifically engineered to handle work in soft, wet and unstable conditions.
"When I got to see my first swampy muscled up with the big wide track plates, I thought it looked like a dozer on steroids," Ron says.
"On each side of the D6 are a series of wide apex or triangular-shaped track plates sitting at 915mm in width (almost 400mm wider than conventional), which are designed to work in soft or wet conditions."
