Caterpillar 854K Wheel Dozer
January 15, 2008

The Caterpillar 854K wheel dozer incorporates innovations to lower engine emissions and boost fuel efficiency, improve reliability and serviceability, and optimize operator efficiency and comfort. Specifically, the 854K uses a highly efficient Cat C32 engine and a new radiator with improved heat transfer capabilities. A variable speed demand fan aids efficiency. For the operator, a new, larger cab includes a trainer’s seat, and a new low-effort joystick controls all blade functions. The 854K replaces the 854G and retains the best features, including the impeller clutch torque converter for superior operator control and optimum power to the ground, lockup clutch for direct drive efficiency, and STIC control system for reduced steering and transmission control effort.
