Cat D8R Series II dozer video review

On a recent trip to south-east Queensland’s ‘Granite Belt’ Ron Horner visited the town of Stanthorpe and met Adrian Johansen and his classic Cat D8R Series II dozer.

The D8R was being used to clear scrub in preparation for the construction of a two metre dog fence around a client's property. Ron found the dozer more than enough for the job.

"This Cat D8R Series II runs a tried and proven 306hp Cat 3406C direct-injection, turbo-charged diesel engine, which is matched perfectly with a Cat torque converter and differential steering to deliver fantastic power and reliability."

"The Cat D8 Series II dozer was very responsive to the call of tight turns, quick pushes and even quicker retreats once the foliage was felled. You can accomplish a pretty good finish on the rough surface with this machine."
