CATERPILLAR’S MARKET CHALLENGES WITH THE DOLLAR AND KOMATSU

Any Caterpillar earth moving equipment for sale at Resolute Equipment generates a lot of interest and the Caterpillar 14M grader is no different. Caterpillar has been making top quality earth moving equipment for the mining and construction industries for over 90 years.

The 14M grader is part of Caterpillar’s M series that is regarded as the industry standard in operational efficiency for road building and road maintenance.

COMFORT, VISIBILITY AND
EASE-OF-USE

Key to operational efficiency is the cab design – a key feature of all Caterpillar construction equipment. This grader features Caterpillar’s industry-leading cabin comfort matched by ease-of-use features and unrivalled visibility. This model of Caterpillar grader has the standard Cat Comfort suspension seat and electronically adjustable control pods as well as multiple isolation mounts to significantly reduce sound and vibration within the cab.

Two electro-hydraulic intuitive joysticks replace traditional levers, steering wheel and transmission control – effectively reducing hand and arm movement by 78% and making a big difference to operator fatigue issues. Advantages of the joystick design include:

  • Electronic throttle control – precise and consistent throttle operation
  • Articulation return-to centre – Automatically returns the machine to a straight frame position from any angle
  • Selectable blade lift modes – modulation mode allows operators to choose the best fit for
  • Grouped, ground level service points
  • Laminated front window glass
  • Operator presence monitoring system
  • Ground-level electrical disconnect switch
  • Ground-level engine shutoff switch
  • Rear-view camera
  • Circle drive slip clutch
  • Blade lift accumulators
 
FEATURED EQUIPMENT: CATERPILLAR 14M GRADER

LOAD-SENSING HYDRAULICS BUILT TO LAST

Hydraulics Load sensing, proportional hydraulics mean operators can rely on consistent power. This precise, predictable response saves time and all but guarantees quality work. Continuously matching hydraulic flow/pressure to power demands creates less heat and reduces power consumption while improved hydraulic flow gives operators confidence that all implements will operate simultaneously without compromising engine power or speed.

The 14M grader also features large independent hydraulic oil supplies that prevent cross contamination and allow proper oil cooling – which makes a big difference to extending the life of key components.

ALL THE STANDARD M SERIES SAFETY FEATURES

Operator safety is at the heart of every Cat machine, from the Caterpillar articulated dump truck through to each machine in the M series. The CAT 14M Grader features:
