Cat’s new 14M3 motor grader is sized to carry out haul road maintenance for operations using smaller trucks as well as for mine construction projects. Improvements over earlier models include a larger engine, increased fuel efficiency, improved machine balance, enhanced transmission performance, advanced electrohydraulic steering, more powerful telematics and operator-safety/convenience features. The Cat C13 ACERT engine replaces the C11 engine in earlier models and has an ECO mode to boost fuel economy by limiting the engine’s high-idle speed to 1,750 rpm in working gears, while maintaining machine power. ECO-mode savings are especially significant, according to Cat, when working at high idle in light to moderate applications in gears 3R to 5F. The C13 engine is available in three versions to suit emissions standards in the area of use.
