Big D11 Bulldozer Drags Tractors and Dump Truck

D11 bulldozer gets tested against some of our other machinery. The dozer is pulling them up a 4 degree slope and still does it fairly easily. The tractors were in neutral with brakes applied so we didnt damage them.

 Great video, the pulling (and pushing) power of the D11 is awesome.  I’m betting on the D11 before I’m even 5 seconds into this video.  The 11 is likely geared lower, probably still weighs as much or more all of those other pieces of equipment combined, plus it has steel grouser tracks to dig in where the rubber tires and rubber tracks don’t come close to grabbing the traction those would need to even hold the 11.  Pretty cool though to put it in perspective, with the video!  Look I knew that none of them could even touch the dozer but the fact that the didn't even feel the need to tie to the frame of the dozer is funny they're like "yeah the implement will handle this no problem"  By the way that big hook on the back of the dozer in the Winter time in Iowa when it is frozen solid That D11 can push that street through frozen ground and I have seen chunks come out  As big as that little tractor no joke it sounds like shotguns going off Under your feet amazing power.  I wonder if D11 could be put in neutral and if so could the other machines pull it in neutral.  And if that succeeded the dozer could just drop the blade and that would be the end.  I used to run one in fort dodge iowa twenty-some years ago they are very very powerful we got one stuck in the mud and it took 4 weeks $10,000 worth of railroad tie and cable to pull it out the blade is 1 and 1/2 Suburbans wide and about 10 ft tail.  With 4 lsw tires on the back d11 can become the most powerful 2wd tractor on the world

 There's some old footage of the Acco super dozer in a tug o'war with a Cat D10 along with 5 other smaller tracked dozers chained up with the D10. At first the Acco is pulled backwards but when the  Acco brakes and begins to turn it's tracks forwards, it pulls them all backwards instead! The Acco could likely pull the D11 here and the machinery.  I understand this is probably private info you would rather not share but I would be fascinated to understand the economics behind the dozer… how much it cost to purchaseupkeep and running costs, how far you transport them for different work, what you charge out at, what sort of supplementary machines you would need to own one e.g a excavator to change tracks And cost of that eq…. Ratio of work on your own property vs others… etc. etc… as I said probably not info you want to share but I’m sure it’s a pretty high barrier to entry so I don’t see any competition popping up haha… anyway just a thought, I would find it very interesting and I’m sure many of the other people would as well.
