That thing is sleek like a race car. Man I like how machines are more smoothed off instead of square and boxy. Better airodynamics and better fuel economy.....LOL

haha yea when your running at 3mph...the only thing is the sleeker and tighter the machine the less room you have to get in and work on it...i wasn't going to open the engine door as the one sales guy was staring me down because i had my Case hat on...but there doesn't look like a whole lot of room...not like our old tank the 955L

That cab looks strange without a big yellow top on the cab.

I believe thats a D6N not a D6K, the new D6K don't have a high track

I see you've decided to switch over to a real man's machine. Good choice! :laugh: :waving:

I drove a D4K around the lot at the CAT dealer, very nice machine, but grossly overpriced and to many bells and whistles..:rolleyes:...I'm kidding.......

I love the hydrostatic dozers, so much nicer then our 550G. That being said I have only ever run 1 of them and that was a D5, so I have nothing to compare it to...but i'm sure if i hopped into a Case with hydrostatic it would put a Cat to shame :weightlifter:

I've run a Deere 650HLT, not a bad machine either. I'd be curious to see how the J series dozers are compared to the H series, but that 650 was a pretty sweet machine.

The joystick controls in the K series dozers are wild and the D5K has quite a bit more horsepower vs. the G series, should be an animal.
