Mini Dozer Great For Smaller Jobs
Maybe the best part about the little dozer is its "mini" price, says Lou Cole of Rhino International, Woodland, Wash., who sells the unit for $15,950.
The Rhino D306 is the only dozer of its size on the market, according to Cole. So far, there are only eight of the mini dozers in North America.
The dozer is powered by a 107 cu. in., 2-cyl. diesel engine coupled to an 8-speed (6 forward, 2 reverse) transmission with dry manual clutch. It's equipped with 10-in. wide, 77-in. long standard Grouser steel tracks that operate on a 5-roller system.
It features a hydraulically operated, 6-way 64-in. wide blade that will dig to a depth of 6 in. and can be raised to 16 in.
Overall length of the 5,800-lb. dozer is 114 in., width is 64 in. and height to the top of the full 6-pt. rollbar is 86 in.
Most parts are "off the shelf" components so repairs can be made anywhere, Rhino says.
