Cat exclusive Positive Pin Retention (PPR) Sealed and Greased Track design resists pin walking and link cracking for reliable sealing and maximum track life.
  • Resists end-play generation and link movement on the pin.
  • Tightly controls seal motion for long internal pin/bushing wear life.
  • Resists fatigue and crack formation with redesigned, stronger track links.
These are the same track links used on our popular D11 dozers, further substantiating their reliability and durability in extreme applications and high travel conditions.

To extend service life and ensure that your 6015B keeps producing, our structures are designed for durability and dependability. Extended performance in the harsh digging conditions you face daily is accomplished through selection of high-strength steels and rugged castings, joined and thermally stress-relieved to create a reliable external shell.
  • Manufactured from high-strength steel for durability.
  • Full penetration, profiled and ground welds at critical junctures.
  • MT, UT, and X-ray inspections on select welds ensure quality.

Leading Fuel Efficiency Via Cat Exclusive Power Management Technologies

Proprietary Cat integrated engine control technologies keep the engine running at or near the rated speed to maintain an optimized balance of power and fuel efficiency. This technology prevents large drops in engine speed, followed by over speeds, often observed in older equipment. It provides the following benefits:
  • Estimates fuel requirements, based on engine speed and torque, and needed machine torque, based on hydraulic load (pumps and fan). This technology ensures faster and more consistent engine regulation by preventing lug, which, in turn, reduces fuel consumption.
  • Reduces hydraulic pump output to prevent engine lug, based on available engine torque, desired engine speed, actual engine speed, and estimated hydraulic load. This technology provides power to the machine functions that need it to move material quickly and efficiently.

Kinetic energy captured during the swing motion is fed back into the system during deceleration, providing more power to drive the main and auxiliary pumps. Energy is saved during deceleration, because braking occurs hydrostatically with pump displacement controls, as opposed to throttling flow through breaking valves as in open circuit swing systems.

More efficient hydraulic pump utilization, reduced energy losses, and increased fuel savings are realized with our innovative, automatic flow proportioning technology.
  • Additional fuel savings resulting from boom float feature, which regenerates boom oil for reduced engine demand and improved energy efficiency.
