Cat 24 motor grader is application-matched for medium to large mines running trucks over 180 tonnes payload

The Cat 24 Motor Grader is equipped with a 7.3-metre-wide (24-foot) moldboard.

Building on the strong heritage of the M Series motor graders, the new Cat 24 motor grader delivers high-performance construction and maintenance of mine roads to improve mining truck efficiency.
