As I was stumbling around after work heading to 7/11 for some gas I was taken back and surprised by the sheer magnificence of what appeared before me parked off the side of the road at a local construction site. There it was a brand new 12M3 CAT Grader for road or other projects manufactured by Caterpillar Corp, a rather new addition to its fleet of heavy equipment products. It’s almost space age in its appearance with a modern cab outfit with comfortable seating and joystick controls with space age screen displays one might expect on a modern commercial passenger jet. The person driving this machine is not likely to want to operate technologically subordinate machines thereafter as this is as state of the art as it gets from Caterpillar, a company known to be on the cutting edge setting new standards for heavy equipment and their operations. Below a an enlarged Photo of what appears to be a new addition to Brevard County Florida’s fleet of heavy equipment serving the citizens needs in road work or public works projects otherwise. Yes this beauty of a machine was payed for through Brevard County Taxpayers so it is in fact a publicly owned machine thus belonging to the residents of Brevard County. You own it folks, it’s your 12M3 CAT people.

The Below Video Puts You in The Driver’s Seat of the 12M3 CAT as stated in the description section of the video quote: “Caterpillar's Auto Articulation combines two functions into one by automatically articulating with steering input which improves maneuverability and performance in tight working spaces, enhances operator comfort and reduces fatigue.” Unquote, a cool ride and piece of equipment to work with in any case

Below the 12M3 Grader link from Caterpillar’s Website: Note the Specification section where the top speed in 8th gear moving forward is seen as 29 miles per hour, a little less than I originally though as perhaps upwards to 40 miles per hour. All the specks are there for you to see.

This website constitutes a point where new paradigms and modes of thought are and can be introduced and discussed openly about how to enhance and design effective new alternative models and or approaches to deal with the human condition. Thus being so, this website is and shall continue to be a building process with more components added across time and that the pre development inception phase of the field of Planetary Development shall come into greater focus in the years ahead.
