CAT D11 (D11T) Bulldozer 1/63 Scale Diecast Metal Model by Toy State
The Caterpillar D11T Bulldozer at 1/63 scale measures 5.25" long from the end of the back track to the tip of the blade. At the widest part of the blade it measures 4" wide.
The tracks are made of rubber and can move. The blade itself does not move, it does not pivot. The arm assembly does have a minimum movement up and down. You can see the range of the movement in the photos.
Construction is made of diecast metal and plastic parts. The blade and arm is entirely made of metal and the main body seems to be a mix of metal and plastic parts. This is definitely not a toy. It is quite heavy and is fairly big, so it could (as the real thing) do some serious damaged if used irresponsibly.
Although sturdy and heavy for a model, it is fragile when compared to a toy. The cab and other details are tiny and fragile, so this won't last long if taken to sand box or to the back yard for a spin.
The model comes in a window box and it measures 7.5" x 5" x 5"
The current D11T was introduced in early 2008 and is also 850 hp (630 kW). This comes as a regular bulldozer and a carrydozer like the previous model. As with the D11R, the D11T Carrydozer can push 57.9 yards (52.9 m) while the regular D11T can push 45 yards (41 m) of earth. A new D11T was on display at the Caterpillar display at Minexpo during the 22 to 24 September 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The D11T and D11T CD are both powered by the CAT C32 engine with ACERT technology. Another difference between the D11R and the D11T is the controls inside the operator's cabin. Several levers have been changed into electronic switches, and several controls have been moved for increased visibility. Another difference is that the D11T has its exhaust mufflers moved back closer to the front of the cab like the D10T. They stand taller than the ones on the D11N/D11R.
