ADDITIONAL INFORMATION : Also used by the British Army one the Lend- Lease ‘ program. The Caterpillar D7 is a medium bulldozer manufactured by Caterpillar and first appeared in 1938. The D7R Series II at 240 hp power and an operating weight of around 20 tons, is in the middle of Caterpillar’s track-type tractors. It is primarily used to move material short distances or through challenging terrain. The vehicle is powerful, yet small and light 16 to 20 t (18 to 23 short tons) depending on configuration). This makes it ideal for working on very steep slopes, in forests, and for backfilling pipelines safely without risking damage to the pipe. The US Army used armoured D7G to clear mine fields and unarmored D7G and D7H for earthworks.
