Caterpillar DD9G "QUAD" Dozer

Caterpillar’s D9G Track-Type Tractor, which was first introduced in 1961, is probably the most famous bulldozer in the world. However, there were also a number of special conversion models available back in the day, including the Caterpillar D9G SXS, which was essentially two Caterpillar D9G Track-Type Tractors joined together side by side, with a massive 24 foot dozer blade up front. The other model was the Caterpillar DD9G, also known as the “QUAD” which was once again a double Track-Type Tractor configuration, only this time they were coupled together one behind the other.

The first QUAD-Trac D9G was originally designed by Buster Peterson of the Peterson Tractor Company in San Leandro, California, in late 1963. The original design concept was purchased by Caterpillar and marketed as Caterpillar DD9G in 1968. The DD9G had two Caterpillar D353 6-Cylinder Diesel Engines producing 770 flywheel horsepower (FWHP) and were primarily designed to push load scrapers faster than had ever been achieved before. The Caterpillar DD9 dozer was the most powerful Caterpillar model available, until the introduction of the Caterpillar D10 in 1978, was controlled by only one single operator who was seated in the front tractor which was fitted with controls for both units.

The DD9G front tractor, where the operator rides, was given a 90J prefix; the rear tractor has a 91J serial number prefix. Production of the DD9G ended in 1974. The Caterpillar DD9G was replaced by the Caterpillar DD9H.
