1955 Caterpillar D4 Dozer used for sale, Classic Caterpillar D4 Dozer
as the RD-4, a diesel successor
to the Cat 30 gas-powered tractor.
It used an inline 4-cylinder D4400 engine.
The design was so popular that D4 variants
would remain in production for the next seven decades.
The D4 was originally designated the RD4
to differentiate it from the R4,
which used the same chassis
but was powered by a gas engine.
When Caterpillar moved exclusively
to using diesels in its heaviest machines,
the "R" naming convention was dropped.
The 4-cylinder D4400 engine
found on the earlier models of the D4
has been phased out here in favor of a 4-cylinder D315 engine.
The 7U machines have a wider 60" track gauge
rather than the narrower 44" gauge found on the 6U.
The machine dates from 1955,
and while it shows its age,
it runs strong, just as you'd take for granted from a Caterpillar.
In the right hands, and with a little bit of work
(a Cat yellow paint job and new decal package),
this dozer could be restored to its former glory.
Caterpillar machinery has traveled
-- and worked --
the world over.
Cat technology has assisted in two world wars,
countless construction projects,
and even the moon landings.
You can buy a Caterpillar for its power,
durability, and versatility.
But when you buy a Cat,
as this D4 proves,
you're buying a machine with a heritage.
This dozer is located in West Orange, NJ 07052
