Cat® 14M3 Motor Grader Hits the Road
The 57,250-pound Cat® 14M3 motor grader delivers increased ease of operation, precise joystick controls and excellent visibility to make it the standard in this size class. Here are just some of the key features:
Heavy-duty front frame is a single steel casting that dissipates working forces, and the rear frame has two bumper castings and thick hitch plates. Caterpillar uses a series of patented “top-adjust” metallic or nonmetallic wear strips and wear inserts that can be installed to ensure drawbar-circle-moldboard components maintain “factory-tight” condition.
Optimized Variable Horsepower system matches power requirements in all gears, and the Consistent-Power-To-Ground feature automatically changes engine power levels to compensate for cooling-fan losses, which delivers consistent power in all ambient temperatures and working conditions.
8F/6R Power-shift Transmission includes the Cat Advanced Productivity Electronic Control System that enhances range-to-range shifting by maintaining consistent torque flow and smoothing shift points.
Load-sensing hydraulic system has Proportional Priority Pressure-Compensating valves that supply different flow rates for the head and rod ends of the cylinders.
Blade-float allows the blade to follow ground contour, or the blade toe can follow a hard surface with the remaining cylinder controlled manually. A 14-foot moldboard is standard, with a 16-foot option.
