Was looking through a website, found some new 1:50 models coming from our friends at DM

D6 LGP VPAT #85554
D6 XU SU #85553
CB 2.7 roller #85593
309 next gen midi #85592
CB 13 roller with and without cab #85594 & #85595
301.7 mini #85597
308 next gen midi #85596


Looks like this will be an interesting year for cat models.

Did they by chance mention models from DM in other scales?

There is the cat ct681 concrete mixer and dump truck in 1:87 scale #85512 & #85514.

That’s all I’ve seen so far.

No pictures yet, it seems that delivery is likely around April/May this year.

Absolutely love DM models.Really good CAT machinery.The only thing is,the packaging.Fine if you are only going to give one,or two,as a gift,or present them to a customer.For someone like me,who collects,that has 20+DM models the metal boxes become a real problem.I now am put off by the boxes alone.My loft space is virtually filled with empty DM boxes.I want more,but the packaging simply takes up too much space.I only have room to display the models.

No pictures yet, description doesn’t have anything mentioning a ripper. It’s possible they will look like that however the model may vary.

Claus, the dozers you have pictured are D6n series. Readily identifiable by the side mounted lift cylinders. Exsisting DM models have been based on the D6r/ D6t series. A bigger dozer. I would guess the new releases would be a variation of these castings.

Cat just came out with a new line of dozers that you can see in Claus' post. Their new dozers will no longer have a letter after the number. I read somewhere that some of them will get new numbers to go with the sizes. I can't remember exactly how it went but it was something like this:
D3k->D1
D4k->D2
D5k->D3
D6k->D4
D6N->D5
D6T->D6
D7E->D7
D8T->D8
D9T->D9
D10T->D10
D11T->D11

Once again that may not be accurate or even if it is Cat might change their minds before it's finalized. So a new D6 dozer from ******uld be an entirely new casting if it's being made to represent one of the new dozers Cat just released.
