New Mastless GRADE with 3D Technology
What is Mastless GRADE with 3D?"Mastless" takes GRADE to the next level by integrating the GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) receivers (GPS) and IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) grade sensors right into the grader, without restrictions from masts (antenna-like sensors) sticking out or cables getting in the way.
Increased Operator Performance & VisibilityWithout the GNSS blade masts, the operator will experience a better overall performance and a safer environment.
Do More WorkThe mastless system allows for closer proximity work such as alongside buildings, all while maintaining accurate grade. This grader is suited for finishing applications, such as side slopes and drains, that were not previously possible due to the existing mast positions.
What are the other enhancements?
Reduces operator inputs and the number of passes to finish the job - saving time and money by reducing the costs associated with re-work (fuel, labour and material costs).
Automatic Blade Control
New Enhanced Large Touchscreen DisplayPuts the design plan clearly in front of the operator and operates like a tablet. Grade control buttons are now integrated into the joystick controls for seamless operation.
Caterpillar’s Industry Exclusive E-FenceFully integrated into the grader, this technology prevents the moldboard from hitting the tyres and ladders and stops the circle from potentially damaging the link bar.
Cross Slope Auto Included with Mastless GRADE with 3DAllows the operator to manually control one side of the blade while the other side is automatically controlled to maintain the preset cross slope, reducing operator fatigue.
Cat GRADE for Motor Graders
Out with the old. In with the new.
Before Caterpillar® introduced Mastless Motor Graders, tall masts GPS systems had to be mounted to the ends of the moldboard, exposing components to potential damage from the environment and theft.
Due to the threat damage, the masts often had to be removed and remounted daily resulting in unnecessary downtime and added hassles for the operator. The constant removal and installation of the masts causes faster wear and tear, and increases the ongoing cost associated with running the grader.
The location of the masts also limited the blade's range of motion, resulting in limited types of applications.
Can I retrofit an older motor grader to be mastless?
Yes, an older Cat Motor Grader can technically be retrofitted with mastless technology. However, you'll see a lot more benefits if you buy new. The platform for the new machine provides an engine with increased grunt and all of the other enhancements listed above. When this is combined with mastless technology, you get the most powerful grader on the market.
Maximum operator comfort and control ensures the Cat® 140 (12M) motor grader optimizes performance, especially on long work days. Its fuel efficient C7 engine includes protection technologies and delivers the power needed for precise control and more work completed per hour.
With a legendary Cat® motor grader pedigree, the 150/150 AWD (140M) models offer peak performance, efficiency, long life and operator comfort. Available with a deep array of technologies to lessen the load on operators and enhance grading performance, the 150 is one high productivity machine.
