The 18 builds on the success of the 16M and offers additional power, a wider moldboard and the possibility to use a more aggressive blade angle, making it an ideal fit for mining operations that run 172-tonne (190-ton) or smaller trucks.
The 18 enhances operational efficiencies by increasing coverage and reducing the number of passes required to complete the width of the road in certain applications. The 18 includes features that provide large benefits on operating cost reduction, uptime & performance improvements as well as enhanced safety.
Features of this product
Better Confort and Control: 18 foot moldboard and straight 10 inch by 1-3/8 inch cutting edge, allowing operators to increase coverage by 12.5% compared to a 16 foot moldboard. The operator can use a more aggressive blade angle and still be able to deposit the windrow away from the tires to protect tire life.
Archieve Greater Productivity: The 18 helps to reducedowntime and operating costs through improved serviceability, fuel economy and reduced maintenance. Major components are modular in design, so most can be removed and reinstalled without disturbing other components.
Built-in Safety Features: Caterpillar considers the safety of everyone in, on or around Cat equipment when developing new products or enhancing safety features for existing products.
