ANNOUNCEMENT! Caterpillar D6 XE "175K Edition" [Diecast Masters 1:50]

30 January 2021

Diecast Masters has in accordance of the Annoucement of the 2021 line up revealed the first photos from the next new to release Caterpillar scale model in their 1:50th scale diecast "Highline Series":

  • Caterpillar D6 XE LGP Track-Type Tractor with VPAT Blade in "175K Edition" #85705

In 1985, Caterpillar expanded its revolutionary elevated sprocket undercarriage concept to its medium track-type tractor (MTTT) line with the launch of the H-Series models. Still unique to this day for the 130 to 350 hp (100 to 250 kW) dozer class, the high drive design conformed to the ground better, improving durability, serviceability and performance compared to low-drive and oval track designs.

The Cat® D4H, D5H, D6H and D7H dozer models were the first to feature the high drive design, and in 1987, the D8L model was added to the family. In addition to bringing many of the same large dozer advantages to the medium line, the elevated drive sprocket allowed movement of the front and rear track idlers. This helped to fine-tune machine balance and ground pressure for specific applications more easily than oval track machines. For the first time, variable pitch angle tilt (VPAT) blades were made available to high drive dozers with the D4H and D5H models for finishing jobs faster by grading at higher speeds.

Thirty-five years later, Caterpillar celebrated the unrivaled success of the elevated sprocket design in the medium dozer class by producing three commemorative 175,000 units in May 2020. “One of the original taglines to promote the early high drive tractors was ‘Beyond Known Capabilities,’ because these units set a new standard for efficiency, productivity and ease of operation,” says Wes Holm, chief engineer, Caterpillar medium tractor products. “With our next generation medium dozer line, which includes the new D5, D6 and D7 models, we continue to push these envelopes through adaptation of technology to drive productivity and efficiency to another level.”

Three commemorative Cat® tractors built

With travel and gathering restrictions resulting from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Caterpillar cancelled in-person celebrations to mark the historic 175,000-unit milestone for its medium dozers. However, three customers took possession of the commemorative units, which feature special decals on the fenders denoting the 175,000-unit milestone. The 175,000 image appears inside the cab as well, where it is embroidered on the headrest and printed on a plaque denoting each unit’s limited-edition status.

Built in East Peoria, Ill., the first two commemorative units were Cat D6 XE electric drive dozers, featuring a sleek dark gray and black paint scheme. The third unit, a D6 dozer with 4-speed, fully automatic transmission, is finished in traditional Cat yellow with special black tracks and blade.

The sales price and the delivery schedule (At this moment expected Q3 2021) for the Caterpillar D6 XE LGP Track-Type Tractor with VPAT Blade in "175K Edition" in 1:50th scale will be posted on this website when available.
