Performance

  • Programmable Autoshift option simplifies operation by allowing transmission to be programmed to shift at optimal points to match application.
  • Power Shift Countershaft Transmission matches to engine, maximizing power to the ground.
  • Electronic Throttle Control helps improve productivity by providing best match of horsepower and torque for application demands.

Efficiency

        
  • Aggressive blade angle, optimized moldboard curvature and large throat clearance allow material to roll more freely along blade, increasing efficiency.
  •     
  • Hydraulic demand fan automatically adjusts speed according to cooling requirements resulting in more power to the ground and improved fuel efficiency. 
  •     
  • Engine idle shutdown is available to shut down engine after a set period of time saving fuel and helping reduce emissions.

Ease of Operation

        
  • Selectable blade lift modes - Fine, Normal, or Coarse - allow you to choose the blade lift modulation mode that best fits your application in operating style.
  •     
  • Joystick controls with electronically adjustable control pods reduce hand and arm movement by 78%, helping reduce operator fatigue.
  •     
  • Left joystick controls steering, articulation, return-to-center, wheel lean, gear selection, left moldboard lift cylinder and float.
  •     
  • Right joystick controls drawbar, circle and moldboard functions as well as electronic throttle control and manual differential lock/unlock.
  •     
  • Articulation Return-to-Center automatically returns machine to a straight frame position from any angle with the touch of a button.

Safety

        
  • Angled cab doors, tapered engine enclosure and sloped rear window increase visibility.
  •     
  • Optional rear vision camera enhances sight to rear of machine.

Serviceability

        
  • Convenient access from the top of the circle to the patented top-adjust wear strips and inserts make them easy to add or replace.
  •     
  • Shimless Moldboard Retention System uses vertical and horizontal adjusting screws to keep moldboard wear strips aligned for reduced blade chatter and precise blade control

Comfort

        
  • Control pods can be adjusted electronically, making it easy to set to ideal operating position. 
  •     
  • Standard Cat Comfort Series suspension seat is fully adjustable.
  •     
  • High capacity Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system dehumidifies and pressurizes cab, sealing out dust, and helps keep windows clear.

Technology

        
  • Shuttle Shift allows smooth, fast direction shifts without requiring you to manipulate the throttle or inching pedal.
  •     
  • Cat Product Link™ aids your equipment management with remote monitoring capabilities.
  •     
  • Optional Stable Blade improves grading by decreasing engine speed at 15 percent intervals when machine bounce is detected then increases engine rpm systematically when grader stabilizes.
  •     
  • Optional Auto Articulation allows you to articulate automatically while steering in tight spaces or around curves, obstacles, and turnarounds. 
  •     
  • Optional Cat GRADE with Cross Slope helps maintain desired cross slope by automatically controlling oneside of the blade.
  •     
  • Optional Cat AccuGrade™ uses positioning and guidance technologies, machine sensors, and automatic blade control to help get to grade faster, easier and more efficiently.
  •     
  • Optional Cat Advanced Control Joysticks allow you to control automated grading solutions efficiently and safely without removing your hands from the joysticks.
