Caterpillar® announces the new 854K Wheel Dozer

People are the backbone of your business, and keeping them safe and productive is the number one priority. At Caterpillar®, we designed the NEW 854K with your most important asset in mind. Drawing from a history of technological advancements and practical wisdom, you can be assured that your people are protected while working in, on, or around the NEW 854K with improved safety features such as:

OPERATOR SAFETY - Cab comfort and operator safety go hand-in-hand. Many features that enhance operator comfort also aid in keeping your operator safe. Examples range from noise and vibration to designing for decreased repetitive motion.
  • Cab Isolation - Operator exposure to noise and vibration is reduced by isolating the 854K cab from the machine frame using isolation-type mounts.
  • Cab Air Quality - The standard cab air filtration system improves operator air quality by removing dust and debris from the cab air. Additionally, an optional powered cab air pre-cleaner can remove over 90% of airborne dust before it reaches the air filter, increasing the cab filter-service interval.
  • Implement Blade Control - The low-effort, fully pilot dozer control is floor-mounted and adjusts fore and aft so operators can find a comfortable operating position. The single-lever control allows operators to control all dozer blade functions with one hand.
  • Trainer Seat - A slight increase in cab size allows room for a trainer seat with a 76.2 mm (3 in) seat belt. This provides a safe method to properly train the operator on the job.
  • Operator Seat - With air suspension and a retractable 76.2 mm (3 in) seat belt, the seat is designed for additional comfort and support. The seat cushions reduce pressure on the lower back and thighs while allowing unrestricted arm and leg movement. The seat is six-way adjustable, and the retractable seat belt stays off the floor, making it easier for the operator to reach. A heated seat is available as an option for comfortable operation in cold weather conditions.
  • Throttle Lock - Allows operator to preset engine speed, resulting in improved productivity while minimizing operator fatigue.
  • Main Control Panel - Located to the right side of the operator's seat, the main control panel is within easy reach to minimize operator strain.
  • Load Sensing Steering - The 854K STIC steering uses a single lever for steering and transmission control. This enables the operator to shift and change directions without releasing the steering control. The ergonomically located left-side armrest allows for the operator to work with fluid and effortless motion.
VISIBILITY SAFETY - The 854K offers the best visibility for this size class wheel dozer.
  • Rear Vision Camera with In-Cab Monitor (Optional) - An optional rear vision camera with 178 mm (7 in) in-cab color display monitor is available to give a closer view behind the wheel dozer.
  • Windshield Cleaning Platform (Optional) - A windshield cleaning platform package has an additional platform and handrails to provide easy access for cleaning of the front and side windows.
  • Articulated Wiper/Washer System - Articulated wiper/washer systems with an intermittent feature are standard on front and rear cab windows, as well as two-speed continuous corner wipers.
  • High Intensity Discharge (HID) Lights (Optional) - HID lighting provides superior illumination around the machine for night operations. The 35 watt HID lamps provide lighting equivalent to 4 Halogen lamps, without producing significant glare. New generation HID lights feature a special flood lens and reflector which provides brighter output.

    • Special Painting of the Blade (Optional) - A low gloss black paint put on the rear of the blade to reduce possible glare from the HID lights.
  • Heated Mirrors (Optional) - This system improves safety and visibility in winter working conditions by keeping rear view mirrors clear of snow and ice.
  • Warning Beacon Lights (Optional) - This option comes with two beacons placed on diagonal corners of the cab roof so they are visible from any angle around the machine.
MACHINE ACCESS SYSTEM SAFETY - The 854K has many improved access and egress features designed with safety in mind.
  • Access Stairs - Available on the 854K is standard access stairway on the left side with optional second access stairway available on the right hand side.
  • Safer Walking Area - Punch stamped tread plates have been placed throughout the machine platform and stair area to minimize slipping.
  • Machine Railings - Full perimeter handrails on upper platforms ensure the availability of three points of contact at all times.
  • Access System Lighting - Stairway lighting with ground level switch provides good visibility for operators and technicians when climbing access stairs at night.
  • Roading Fenders (Optional) - Optional roading fenders help prevent mud and debris build-up on the stairs for safety in getting on and off the machine.
MAINTENANCE SAFETY - Daily and routine maintenance should not pose a safety hazard to your operator or service technician. With the 854K, design effort was taken to group service points with convenient access. The features that improve safety for maintenance and service personnel also increase their productivity...more time in the dirt!
  • Optional Service Center - The 854K offers an optional service center for one point of service. This includes a fill and drain feature for the optional oil renewal system, radiator, implement tank, steering tank, transmission and engine oil. Optional QuickLube is only available with a fill tube. Additionally, the optional QuickLube and Oil Renewal Systems are both equipped with full indicator lights. The full indicator lights allow the service technician to ensure the system is full while filling at ground level.
  • Bumper Service Center - This panel is conveniently located at ground level on the left-hand rear side of the 854K. In addition to an auxiliary emergency shutdown switch and the two lockout switches below, this center contains a VIMS port, VIMS Service Key Switch, and Cat Electronics Technician com-II port.

    • Ground Level Starter Lockout - Located in the bumper service center, the starter lockout disables the ability to crank the engine while still providing electrical power throughout the machine, which is often needed during service procedures.
    • Ground Level Transmission Lockout - Located in the bumper service center, the transmission lockout prohibits the transmission from being shifted out of neutral, even if running. This feature is designed for service procedures that require machines to be running but want the transmission disabled for added safety.
  • Nighttime Lighting - An under hood light is available for both engine access doors for ease of service at night.
  • Ground Level Safety - To ensure the machine stays static while working in the articulation area, the Cat 854K has an articulation lock.
  • Implement Lockout Switch - Allows the operator or service technician to lock out the implement controls from a switch on the implement pod within the cab.
  • Steering Lockout Switch - The steering lockout, also located in the cab, locks the steering handle in the neutral position and disables the transmission controls, ensuring the machine will not be moved until the lock is disabled.
  • Sight Gauges - Incorporated into all major 854K fluid systems, these devices allow operators to easily check fluid levels from the ground as part of their daily walk-around inspection.
  • Toe Kicks on Upper Platform - A 90mm (3.5 in) plate running around the top platform for additional safeguards to maintain personnel and minimize tools falling off the upper platform.
