With a dependable dozer in your equipment fleet, you can take on anything from demolition to earthmoving to excavation with efficiency and ease.

At Foley, Inc., we’re your destination for high-quality Cat® dozers that set the standard for performance and durability. We give companies the opportunity to buy, rent, lease or rent-to-own their machines of choice based on their individualized dozing needs.

Cat® Dozer Names

Foley, Inc., is excited to announce that Caterpillar has recently changed its dozer nomenclature for its full product line. This new initiative to simplify Cat dozer names was established to make the equipment acquisition process easier and more straightforward for customers while promoting faster product development.

Initially, Cat dozers were named with letter modifiers to differentiate machines that existed within the same size class, such as D6T, D6N and D6K2. Recently, Caterpillar decided to remove the letters in dozer names and arrange them from smallest to largest, with only one model per class size. This nomenclature gives customers a better, more straightforward idea of how machines compare to one another within the dozer lineup.

When you browse our revamped dozer selection, you’ll enjoy a brand-new designation featuring shorter model numbers for a smoother buying experience.
