Cat® Motor Graders continue the Caterpillar tradition of being the industry standard in heavy construction, road building, and governmental applications. The 14M3 features a host of integrated technology solutions that increase operator efficiency, boost productivity levels and lower owning and operating costs. The 14M3 takes advantage of a larger engine, increased fuel efficiency, improved machine balance, enhanced transmission performance, more powerful telematics and added operator safety/convenience features.
Net power advertised is the power available at rated speed of 1,850 rpm, measured at the flywheel when engine is equipped with fan, air cleaner, muffler and alternator.
Optimized VHP Plus is standard for the 14M3.
