No. 9 Auto Patrol — 1931 No. 11 — 1934 Diesel No. 12 — 1938 Efficiency. Productivity. Cost per ton. While these terms may not have been familiar to those who invented the first motor grader in the early 1900s, this revolutionary piece of earthmoving equipment certainly had an effect on them. Replacing a horse-drawn implement with a self-propelled model improved earthmoving by leaps and bounds. And when Caterpillar entered the marketplace in 1928, innovations and new product introductions quickly put Caterpillar in a leadership position. Motor grader development is credited to the Russell...

The 24M motor grader is designed to meet the specialized requirements of large mining operations, particularly those maintaining haul roads for trucks with capacities of 172 tonnes (190 tons) or more. Easy serviceability is a key feature in the M Series, with grouped service points for reduced maintenance time, ground level service access wherever possible, and a bolton rear axle to provide easy access to components. Extended service intervals, automatic lubrication, and fast fill and drain capabilities for fluids also contribute to easier maintenance.

performance Our mining customers measure profitability by the ore they produce — and the more costeffectively they do that, the more successful they are. There are dozens of variables that impact operations, and mines continually look for ways to improve productivity and reduce costs to improve their bottom line. While drills, draglines, loaders and haul trucks are responsible for producing ore, motor graders have a direct impact on how productively these machines can operate — in particular in their role in haul road maintenance. Motor graders help create and maintain constant grade and...

operators When our customers asked us to make our motor graders simpler to learn and easier to operate, we responded with the biggest development in motor grader design in the last 50 years. Our revolutionary cab makes the Cat motor grader the most operator friendly machine of its kind. One of the most significant changes is in the control system. Joysticks replace the traditional levers to deliver precise control and unmatched ease of operation. This revolutionary feature integrates the steering functions into two electro-hydraulic joystick controls. The control pattern is extremely...
