12M3 MOTOR GRADER: THE SAVINGS ADD UP

The payoff can be big when you add a 12M3 motor grader to your fleet.

Here are just a few of the things you can save:

Time. With its high-efficiency drive train, operator-friendly controls and comfortable work environment, this is a grader that helps you get the job done fast.

Rework. Optional Cat® Connect Technology, including Cat Grade, helps operators reach target grade quickly and accurately—eliminating the extra passes and rework that add costs and inefficiencies.

Effort. Joystick controls reduce hand and arm movement by 78 percent, minimizing fatigue and boosting productivity. Other features—like Articulation Return to Center and Selectable Blade Lift Modes—make this grader easier to work in, even when an operator has less experience.

Fuel. The machine’s standard economy mode delivers fuel savings of up to 10 percent.

Service time and costs. The drawbar, circle and moldboard are designed for quick maintenance. Grouped service points minimize maintenance time, and extended service intervals optimize uptime and costs.

Lives. The 12M3 is equipped with many safety features including a standard Operator Presence Monitoring System that keeps the parking brake engaged and hydraulic implements disabled until the operator is seated and the machine is ready to work.

Air quality. The 12M3 meets the latest US and EU standards for emissions reduction.
