Cat® Motor Graders continue the Caterpillar tradition of being the industry standard in heavy construction, road building, and governmental applications. The 14 (14M3) features a host of integrated technology solutions that increase operator efficiency, boost productivity levels and lower owning and operating costs. The 14 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.
Maximum Altitude - Full Power
Maximum Torque - VHP Plus
Tier 4 Final/Stage V, Tier 3/Stage IIIA equivalent or Tier 2/Stage II equivalent
Maximum Altitude - Full Power (Tier 3)
Maximum Altitude - Full Power (Tier 2)
Net power is tested per ISO 9249, SAE J1349, and EEC 80/1269 Standards in effect at the time of manufacture.
Standard - Fan Speed - Minimum
Power as declared per ISO 14396. Rated rpm 1,850. VHP+ = 228 kW (306 hp)
Cat engines equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system are required to use: Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) which meets the requirements outlined in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 22241-1.
The air conditioning system on this machine contains the fluorinated greenhouse gas refrigerant R134a (Global Warming Potential = 1430). The system contains 2.0 kg (4.4 lb) of refrigerant which has a CO2 equivalent of 2.860 metric tonne (2.76 ton).
