  • Prefer a motor grader with steering wheel and levers? The 140 uses Caterpillar’s 45 years of lever and steering wheel controls design experience to provide you with the control option you prefer.
  • Save up to 40 percent in material with the Cat GRADE Cross Slope feature. Monitor Cross Slope information from the machine display.
  • Optimized machine balance ensures maximum drawbar power to the ground.
  • Don’t let the snow stop you from working. The all-wheel drive (AWD) option assists with traction and maneuvering the machine.
  • Each machine is equipped with the Cat C9.3 engine for power and reliability.
  • Save up to 10 percent on fuel consumption with ECO Mode.
  • For your fine grade applications, the hydraulic system provides multifunction capability of up to seven simultaneous functions for superior performance.
  • Reduce risk of impact damage with the standard circle drive slip clutch. It protects your circle drive and teeth.


  • Reduce your dependence on manual grade checking by using the Digital Blade Slope Meter.
  • Cat GRADE with Cross Slope Indicate option provides a real time readout of cross slope and can be scaled to Cat GRADE with Cross Slope for automatic blade movement.
  • Cat GRADE Attachment Ready Option (ARO) ensures machine readiness for additional 2D/3D grade control technologies.
  • Stable Blade senses blade bounce before the operator to reduce manual throttle use and site rework.
  • Product Link™ provides location, machine hours, fuel usage, productivity, idle time, diagnostic codes, and other machine data on demand through the VisionLink® online interface, which helps you improve job site efficiency with lower operating costs.
  • Remote Services eliminates the need for technicians to connect to Electronic Technician (ET) to flash software updates to the machine.


  • Adjust to your ideal comfort with the air suspension seat with multiple ergonomic adjustments.
  • The rear camera option enhances visibility along with a heated lens to prevent snow buildup.
  • The high capacity Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system dehumidifies and pressurizes the cab, circulates fresh air, seals out dust and keeps windows clear.
  • Add the communications radio mount to connect with your operators from the cab.


  • Filters, such as hydraulic oil, engine air, and DEF filters, are grouped together for easy access and preventative maintenance.
  • The new next generation filters offer up to 20 percent in reduced fluid and filter costs.
  • Spend less time cleaning the cooling system with the reversing fan option, which reduces costs when cleaned once per week for more uptime.
  • Maintain roads with the standard drawbar circle moldboard with hardened circle teeth for increased durability.
  • For tight finish grading, consider the top adjust drawbar option for applications that require maximum accuracy, andoffers up to 45 percent reduction in maintenance cost over the standard.


  • Depend on your brakes with maximum stopping power on all four rear wheels.
  • View your work space with the rear camera option. It offers a rear view of the machine to ensure the safety of you and those around you. The dedicated display can be always on to ensure a safe work environment
  • In the event of an engine issue, your operators can count on the secondary steering system to stop the machine safely. It turns on automatically if the main pump pressure drops.
  • Ground level refueling requires no climbing on the machine to fill the fuel tank.
  • Ensure three points of contact when entering and exiting the machine with strategically placed walkways and grab rails.
  • Work past sundown using the LED light option for increased nighttime visibility.


  • Ripper and Scarifier options are available.
  • Improve the balance of your machine with the counterweight and push block for increased performance and efficiency.
  • For snow applications, straight blades or v-plows added to the front lift keep roads clear.
  • Plow through snow with the mast-type or mast-less snow wing attachment.
  • For more road coverage, add a moldboard extension to add 600 mm (24 in).
