Power TrainMatched Caterpillar components deliver smooth, responsive performance and reliability.
Cat 3306 EngineThe Cat 3306 continues its tradition of powerful, efficient performance and unmatched reliability and durability. The six-cylinder engine is naturally aspirated with a high displacement-to-power ratio.
Fuel EfficiencyHigh fuel injection pressures ensure proper mixing of fuel and air.
Extended Engine LifeThe large bore-stroke design and conservative power rating help minimize internal stresses and increase component life.
Electronic Overspeed ProtectionElectronic overspeed protection helps prevent engine and transmission damage from premature downshifting and grade-induced overspeeding.
Power Shift TransmissionCaterpillar designs and builds transmissions specifically for Cat motor graders.
Direct DriveDirect drive delivers superior fuel efficiency and better "feel" of blade loads, material hardness and ground speed.
Gear SelectionsEight forward speeds and six reverse speeds give the operator a wide operating range.
Electronic Transmission ControlElectronic transmission control produces easy, smooth shifts, which enable the operator to maintain uniform surfaces if shifting is required.
Inching CapabilityLow pedal effort and excellent modulation provide precise control of machine movements when using the inching pedal.
Dual Air SystemThe dual air system supplies braking capacity to each side of the machine.
Oil Disc BrakesCaterpillar designs and builds multi-disc brakes that are completely sealed and adjustment-free.
Variable HorsepowerVariable horsepower comes standard. When all-wheel drive is engaged, it delivers full power in all gears.
Optional AutoshiftOptional autoshift improves ease of operation and maximizes productivity by automatically shifting the transmission at optimal shift points.
HydraulicsBalanced hydraulics deliver consistent, precise and responsive control.
Power On DemandNormally, the variable displacement pump idles at near-zero output.
Implement Control ValvesImplement control valves are designed and built by Caterpillar specifically for motor graders.
Low Operator EffortImplement controls are designed to reduce operator fatigue.
Balanced FlowWhen the operator uses several controls at one time, flow is proportioned to ensure all implements can operate simultaneously. If hydraulic demand exceeds pump capacity, cylinder velocities will be reduced by the same ratio.
Independent Oil SupplyLarge independent oil supply prevents cross-contamination and provides proper oil cooling, which means less heat build-up and extended component life.
Blade FloatBlade float is incorportated into the blade lift control valves.
All-Wheel DriveAll-wheel drive keeps productivity high by improving tractive effort in poor underfoot conditions.
Superior TractionAll-wheel drive improves tractive performance in poor underfoot conditions such as snow, mud and sand.
More PowerThe variable horsepower feature is standard on the 163H.
Wide Working RangeAll-wheel drive is available in gears 1-7 forward and 1-5 reverse, making it effective in both low-speed and high-speed applications; from ditch cutting to snow winging.
Operating ModesThree operating modes are available: automatic, manual or off. The operator selects the operating mode using a rocker switch on the transmission console.
ServiceabilityConveniently placed service points make routine maintenance quick and easy.
MaintenanceEasy access to service areas speeds up maintenance and ensures that routine service is performed on time.
Power Train ComponentsPower train components feature a modular design so you can remove the engine, transmission or final drives independently for quick servicing.
Diagnostic CapabilityDiagnostic capability offers fast servicing of the transmission.
XT HoseCaterpillar designs and manufactures its own heavy-duty XT hose and installs it in all high-pressure circuits. It's resistance to abrasion, coupled with its exceptional strength and flexibility, help minimize maintenance and extend life.
O-Ring Face SealsO-ring face seals create a reliable seal and are used in all hydraulic circuits to minimize the possibility of oil leaks.
Radiator Cleanout AccessRemovable covers on each side of the radiator guard provide access to the front of the radiator for cleanout with compressed air or pressure washer.
Extended Life Coolant (ELC)Extended Life Coolant (ELC) extends coolant life. A single addition of ELC Extender is the only maintenance required.
Separate Wiring HarnessesSeparate wiring harnesses connect all electrical components.
