Nov. 27, 2018

The 165-horsepower 120 motor grader offers the option of either a steering wheel/lever or a joystick control. With an operating weight of 35,067 pounds, it has a 12-foot moldboard. Extended change cycles for engine oil, hydraulic, and transmission filters cuts operating expenses up to 15 percent, according to the company. Filters are group together for accessibility.

Grade-control technologies include Cross Slope, Cross Slope Indicate, Digital Blade Slope Meter, and the Attachment-Ready Option, which integrates with grade control technologies. Optional Stable Blade automatically slows the grader if machine bounce adversely affects the grade.

An all-wheel drive option has a net power range of 145 to 189 horsepower and provides a front wheel-only creep mode.
