Features & Information

  • Machine Controls. Simple, intuitive joystick controls replace levers, so hand and arm movement is reduced by 78%, helping reduce operator fatigue for better productivity. Control pods can be adjusted electronically, making it easy to set your ideal operating position.
  • Operator Station. In addition to excellent comfort and visibility, 160 graders feature an updated seat with heated/ventilated options, as well as an optional seat belt indicator. The high capacity Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system dehumidifies and pressurizes the cab, seals out dust and helps keep windows clear. An updated message display shows machine and diagnostic information. Now located in the center console, it also displays Cat® GRADE with Cross Slope readings conveniently in front of the operator. An optional deluxe radio with CD features MP3 and Bluetooth® technology
  • Emission Technology. Emissions reduction technology on the 160 Motor Grader is designed to be transparent, with no action required from the operator. There is no need to stop. Regeneration runs automatically at cold start-up and, if needed, in the background while you work. The Selective Catalytic Reduction system utilizes Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), which can be conveniently filled from ground level. Simply refill the DEF tank when you refuel. A gauge on the dash shows your fluid level.
  • Engine and Power Train. A Cat C9.3 engine gives you the performance to maintain consistent grading speeds for maximum productivity. Programmable Autoshift option simplifies operation by allowing you to program the transmission to shift at optimal points to match your application. A new standard Economy Mode can be turned on to help you save fuel by reducing engine speed so the machine works in a more efficient range. The average fuel savings is up to 10 percent, depending on the application.
