Goodfellow Bros. receives the world’s first electric drive dozer

Goodfellow Bros. recently announced it is the proud recipient of one of three commemorative Cat D6 XE Dozers – a special edition high-drive electric drive dozer built specifically to celebrate Caterpillar’s production of 175,000 medium high-drive dozers.

The Cat D6 XE is the world’s first electric drive dozer offering elevated sprocket design for increased agility and 35% better fuel efficiency, compared to the previous 3-speed model D6T. With no gears to shift, the electric drive provides maximum torque at all speeds and constant power to the ground allowing it to move up to 10% more material per hour.

The unique dark gray and black paint scheme was only one of two manufactured worldwide in this color. Additionally, the one-of-a-kind dozer features special fender decals and a custom, decorative blade to celebrate the company’s 2021 centennial.

Goodfellow Bros. plans to feature the new commemorative dozer throughout its centennial anniversary celebration in 2021.

“For nearly one hundred years, Goodfellow Bros. has been on the forefront of adopting innovative technologies to improve operations and make jobs safer and more efficient,” said Chad Goodfellow, CEO of Goodfellow Bros. “The addition of the Cat D6 XE to our fleet is a great example of our commitment to innovation and partnerships that make our industry better.”
