RELIABILITY YOU CAN COUNT ON

  • Reduce downtime and operating cost through improved serviceability, fuel economy and reduced maintenance, maximizing availability.
  • Major components are modular, so most can be removed and reinstalled without disturbing other components for peak repair efficiency.
  • C13 engine has been optimized to be as efficient without compromising performance. Eco Mode can be activated to control high engine idle speed and ensure the engine is performing as efficiently as possible, offering additional fuel savings.
  • Center shift section of the front frame is a heavy-duty steel casting improving stress distribution for enhanced durability.
  • Rear frame structure is lengthened providing easy access to components in the engine enclosure as well as improved machine balance.
  • Front axle steering cylinder enhances durability and hydraulic lines are routed to improve reliability.
  • Modular cooling package provides simple removal and installation of components on the cooling system reducing service time.
  • Engine enclosure doors provide complete access to the engine without any enclosure post.
  • Extended maintenance intervals reduce the number of touches and downtime.
  • Fluid monitoring systems help prevent critical components from damage when levels are low.
  • Information Display in cab shows service/maintenance concerns and diagnostic codes are logged.

PERFORMANCE AND PRODUCTIVITY

  • Motor graders have a direct impact on how productively all other mining machines operate – in particular in their role in haul road maintenance. The 16is optimized exactly to this goal:
  • Additional weight along with adjusted weight balance offers enhanced performance improving traction and the ability to keep ground speed, especially when carrying a large load.
  • Available with three variations of the C13 engine depending upon sales region.
  • Emissions reduction technology is transparent, with no action required from the operator.
  • Multi-color / touch screen information display is the operator's gateway to monitoring machine performance and provides convenient way of modifying machine parameters to tailor performance to the current task. Assist in providing service information for troubleshooting.
  • Cat Product Link™ Elite integrates into the machine, taking guesswork out of equipment management. Provides easy access to machine location, hours, fuel usage, idle time and event codes via the online VisionLink® user interface helping you manage your fleet and operating costs.

ENSURING A SAFE JOB SITE

  • Caterpillar considers the safety of everyone in, on or around Cat equipment when developing products or enhancing safety features.
  • The 16has safety features including -
  1. Access to Tandem
  2. Rear View Camera
  3. Seat Belt Indicator
  4. Access Platform – optional
  5. Service Access Platform – optional
  6. Fire Suppression Ready System – optional
