SEM, a Caterpillar Brand, has officially launched the all-new SEM915 and SEM917 motor graders for the Philippine region. These machines were designed with a specific focus on customer requirements and road construction needs.
These new motor graders are manufactured in a state-of-the-art facility, Caterpillar (Qingzhou) Limited (CQL) that produces both SEM and Cat equipment. The SEM915 is a 150-HP motor grader while the SEM917 is a 170-HP motor grader.
The introduction of SEM915 and SEM917 strengthens the SEM motor grader portfolio which currently consists of the SEM919, SEM921, and SEM922AWD. Whatever the site requirements are, SEM has a motor grader for every job.

Excellent performance and comfort: Best-in-class hydraulic system and specially-designed Caterpillar control valves and levers drastically reduce operator fatigue while maintaining smooth operation, even on prolonged heavy blading applications.
