Application Guide

The motor grader is one of the most versatile earthmoving machines in use today. Its weight, horsepower, wide range of attachments, and maneuverability allow it to be used in many applications previously considered as work for other earthmoving machines. The number of uses to which the motor grader can be put is usually limited only by the operator’s skill and experience. Motor graders work in a wide range of applications, from close tolerance finish grading to building a road start-to-finish. A high percentage of motor graders are used in road maintenance, repair, rebuilding or snow removal work on provincial, and township roads. The main portion of this release is directed toward these applications, but some contractor applications are also covered. We will cover many applications and explain a normally accepted way of accomplishing the tasks. Varying conditions and soils may require modification of the methods described.

N O T E

This guide does not replace the Operating & Maintenance Manual (OMM) that comes with every Cat Motor Grader. It is vital that you study and understand the OMM before operating any equipment. Safety must always be your number one concern. Before starting any work, make sure you understand the job requirements, your machine, and its limitations. Make sure the machine, any attachments and cutting edges have been properly maintained and the tires are at proper air pressure.
