D6 Cat

How do you drive a CAT D6-B bulldozer? Which levers do what?

I am looking at buying a Catapillar D6-B dozer (which is a bit of equipment at a deceased estate), to clear some land but I have never driven one before. How hard can it be? Surely all I need to know is what levers do what, ie stop, go, left, right, clutch, blade up/down, rippers up/down. Everything else should be common sense, watch the gauges, keep it full of oil, gease, hydraulic fuild, diesel, water etc.

Modern dozers operate quite differently than older ones. You didn't say what model you were referring to, so I will assume the latter. Older cats had a main clutch lever on the left (long Lever coming out of the floor). Two steering clutch levers and two steering brake pedals. The throttle lever is usually on either side of the steering levers. The blade ops lever default on the right. With this type of steering system it is important to never use the steering brake without its adjoining clutch. If you do this much it will strip the lining off the brakes quickly. The main clutch must be pulled to engage and pushed to disengage and also to stop by pressing both steering brakes. If the machine is equipped with angle and tilt or four-way blade operation, it may have one or more levers for that.
