  • Speed Sensitive Steering lessens sensitivity as ground speed increases for greater confidence and control.
  • Secondary Steering System's electric hydraulic pump automatically engages in case of a drop in steering pressure to ensure operator can steer the machine to a stop.
  • Hydraulic lockout disables all implement functions while still providing machine steering control.
  • Brakes located at each tandem wheel to eliminate braking loads on the power train. Redundant brake systems utilise accumulators to enable stopping in case of machine failure.
  • Perforated steel tandem walkways with convenient grab rails for sturdy platform when moving on, off and around.
  • Circle Drive Slip Clutch protects the drawbar, circle and moldboard from shock loads if the blade encounters an immovable object and also reduces the possibility of abrupt directional changes in poor traction conditions.
  • Blade Lift Accumulators help absorb impact loads by allowing vertical blade travel. This optional feature reduces wear and impact loading for enhanced operator safety.
  • E-Fence technology that prevents the moldboard from hitting the tyres and ladders and stops the circle from potentially damaging the link bar.

Heavy Duty Construction

  • Filters, such as fuel, engine air, and oil filters, are grouped together for easy access.
  • Caterpillar designs motor grader frame and drawbar components to give you performance and durability.
  • One-piece forged steel circle stands up to high stress loads, and a sacrificial wear system helps keep your service time and costs down.
  • Articulation hitch features a large tapered roller bearing to carry loads evenly and smoothly. Sealed to prevent contamination and a locking pin prevents articulation during service or transport.
  • The drawbar, circle and moldboard make it easy for you to keep the components tight.
  • Shims and patented top-adjust wear strips are easy to add or replace, reducing downtime.
  • Durable nylon composite wear inserts maximize circle torque and component life.
  • Sacrificial brass wear strips between blade mounting group and moldboard can be easily adjusted and replaced.
  • Shim less Moldboard Retention System uses vertical and horizontal adjusting screws to keep moldboard wear strips aligned for reduced blade chatter and precise blade control.
  • An aggressive blade angle, optimized moldboard curvature and large throat clearance help you work more efficiently by allowing material to roll more freely along the blade.
  • Heat-treated rails, hardened cutting edges and end bits, and heavy duty bolts to give you greater moldboard reliability and long service life.
  • Link bar allows extreme moldboard positioning for easier bank sloping and ditch cutting/cleaning.
