25 Days of RollOuts: Cat Introduces Four New D Series Skid Steers

Cat 236D

Caterpillar’s four D Series skid steers, replacements for their B3, C and C2 Series predecessors, now have a standard sealed and pressurized, one-piece modular construction cab, as “Cab-One.”

The series also has a lift-arm design for improved sight lines, along with increased engine performance.

The Cat C3.3B engine provides 74 horsepower with 8 percent more torque and a 6 percent increase in fuel economy compared to the previous models.
