The Caterpillar 140M Motor Grader

The Caterpillar 140M motor grader is a construction machine used to flatten surfaces during the grading process. The machine is a common feature on many building sites and is considered an industry standard in operational efficiency and overall productivity.

All of the M-series graders make use of twin joysticks allowing for a high level of operator control. The 140M is the first watershed grader, it features large glass pane windows, extending from the floor to the ceiling. This gives the driver superb visibility when the machine is operated. When combined with the angular doors which offer clear view of the blades and the wheels, the large rear view mirrors and rear window, visibility is never an issue.

The machine itself is quite simple to operate and the conditions inside the cab are comfortable. A GPS can be fitted easily inside the cab, as well as laser systems which extend down each lever.
