Worlds first new generation D11 hits the dirt

09 January 2020

Hastings Deering Press Release: December 19th 2019.

As the worlds first production D11 goes to work at BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA)’s Blackwater Coal Operations, another five machines are lined up to be deployed to National Group in the coming months.

With the first D11s trailed in North America earlier in 2019, National Group secured the world’s first Next Generation Dozer off the production line.

National Group Managing Director, Mark Ackroyd said that the team pride themselves on having the best equipment available for their clients.

“Securing the first ever Cat® D11 Dozer in the world is a testament to this,” he said. “Cat machines and engines are widely recognized as premium products and known for superior quality and reliability.”

“The D11 is the industry’s best large dozer so it was a logical choice for us to bring in six new dozers to add to our expansive fleet.”

Along with load sensing hydraulics reducing fuel burn, the new D11 will extend out component life from fuel burn to overhaul. Caterpillar has developed this machine to ensure faster cycle times to produce more dirt at a lower cost per ton.

Mr. Ackroyd said that the contribution the dozers will add to production and efficiency will boost overall performance on site.
