D6 8U/9U

David Haymes Could someone tell me what is the difference in a D6 8U and a D6 9U? Also what is the horsepower on a D318 engine?

Thank You in advance

CatD68u A several different things:

1. that is the serial number prefix
2. 8u is "narrow gauge" 60" width. (of tracks)
3. 9u is "wide gauge" 74 " width. (of tracks)

other than that the "tractor" is the same.

A 318 is usually rated at 85 horse.

A 318 is usually rated at 85 horse. That doesn't sound like a lot, but in a 9U you can do just about any type of building or clearing with it. You also find that engine in a lot of graders. It's a live-forever engine if you take care of it. I've had a 9U for over 30 years performing in light to medium work and never did anything to the engine except oil/filter changes and a few adjustments. It's a really good engine.
