This keeps drawbar-circle-moldboard components factory-tight for higher quality work, and saves you service time and costs. An adjustable circle drive reduces service time and reduces wear by keeping components tight.
The Cat C13 engine with ACERT Technology gives you the performance to maintain consistent grading speeds for maximum productivity. Superior torque and lugging capability pulls through sudden, short-term load increases.
Standard optimized variable horse power (VHP) is designed to provide the ideal amount of power in all gears to effi ciently perform diverse motor grader applications while protecting structure and drive train components.
ENGINE ECONOMY (ECO) MODE
ECO Mode improves fuel economy by reducing high idle engine speed while maintaining machine power. ECO Mode controls the high engine idle speed (capped at 1,900 rpm in working gears) to ensure the engine is performing as effi ciently as possible with respect to fuel consumption.
ECO Mode could provide signifi cant fuel consumption savings especially in operations that are typically run at light to moderate loads, high idle and gear usage between 3R to 5R.
CONSISTENT POWER TO THE GROUND
This standard, automatically enabled feature changes the engine power levels in real-time to offset cooling fan losses, resulting in consistent power to the ground independent of ambient temperatures and machine workloads. As a result the operator will get the best performance from the machine all the time.
Emissions reduction technology on the 16M3 Motor Grader is designed to be transparent, with no action required from the operator. It delivers the same power and torque needed for optimal performance. The C13 ACERT engine variation with Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV/Japan 2014 (Tier 4 Final) emission standards includes:
DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTER (DPF)
The Diesel Particulate Filter can provide a particulate reduction of greater than 90%. It fi lters soot from the exhaust. Soot is then removed through the regeneration process automatically or manually.The Diesel Particulate Filter can provide a particulate reduction of greater than 90%. It fi lters soot from the exhaust. Soot is then removed through the regeneration process automatically or manually.
SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION (SCR)
The Selective Catalytic Reduction system can provide a NOx reduction of greater than 90%. SCR operation is transparent to the operator during operation. The urea solution, Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), is pumped from the DEF tank and is sprayed into the exhaust stream. The DEF reacts with the SCR catalyst to reduce NOx.
DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID (DEF)
Diesel Exhaust Fluid is a liquid that is injected into the exhaust system of engines equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems. Diesel Exhaust Fluid that meets ISO 22241 specifi cations is required.
GROUND LEVEL DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID (DEF) FILL
16M3 DEF fi ll allows the DEF tank to be fi lled from ground level. This removes the burden of climbing onto and off of the machine to fi ll the DEF tank and allows the DEF tank to be fi lled at the same time the fuel tank is being fi lled.
Maximum power to the ground
We designed the 16M3 to give you effi ciency and longevity in your most demanding applications.

Additional storage space for common used cabin items is included inside the cab.
Optional Bluetooth and satellite radio are available.
Advanced machine controls with precise and predictable movements.
LOAD SENSING HYDRAULICS (PPPC)
A proven load-sensing system and advanced Proportional Priority Pressure-Compensating (PPPC) electro-hydraulic valves give you superior implement control and enhanced machine performance. Continuously matching hydraulic fl ow/pressure to power demands creates less heat and reduces power consumption.
Consistent, Predictable Movement – PPPC valves have different fl ow rates for the head and rod ends of the cylinder, so you can count on consistent, predictable implement response.
Balanced Flow – Hydraulic fl ow is proportioned to give you confi dence that all implements will operate simultaneously without slowing the engine or speed of some implements.
Allows the blade to move freely under its own weight. By fl oating both cylinders, the blade can follow the contours of the haul road. Floating only one cylinder permits the toe of the blade to follow a hard surface while the operator controls the slope with the other lift cylinder. An optional Variable Down Pressure feature allows you to select the amount of down force when the blade is in fl oat. This helps you extend cutting edge life and is effective for removing snow and mud from a road surface.
