Reliable, Durable Performance

        

  • The redesigned 316 GC allows you to be up to 15% more productive than with the previous 313D2 GC model.
  •     

  • The C3.6 engine delivers more power, is more fuel-efficient, and meets U.S. EPA Tier 3 and EU Stage IIIA emission standards,
    equivalent to China Nonroad Stage III.
  •     

  • Breakout force is increased and a redesigned swing drive gives you improved swing torque and smoothness, increasing your productivity.
  •     

  • The main hydraulic pump is electronically controlled for greater efficiency and provides nearly twice the fluid flow of the previous model, improving control and productivity.
  •     

  • Undercarriage and track design better meet high production needs and deliver excellent stability.
  •     

  • A reinforced upper frame gives the 316 GC even greater durability.
  •     

  • A wide range of bucket and tool options lets you take on more tasks.
  •     

  • Reinforced bucket linkage pin allows for greater digging force.
  •     

  • Reinforced stick with tailor-made rebar makes the 316 GC reliable enough to handle any tough application.

Low Owning and Operating Costs

        

  • Match the power to the job with three working modes: Smart for power automatically adjusted to demand, Eco for lowest fuel burn, and Power for highest productivity.
  •     

  • The 316 GC is designed for easier and less expensive maintenance, lowering costs up to 20%.
  •     

  • Hydraulic and air filters have increased service life, while the pilot and case drain filters have been eliminated.
  •     

  • Most daily maintenance can be performed from ground level, decreasing the amount of time you spend on daily tasks.
  •     

  • Swing drive operates on the hydraulic system, eliminating the need to check or refill a different oil system.
  •     

  • Both the hydraulic and engine oil refill amounts have been reduced with no change in performance or service life.
  •     

  • When hydraulic demand is low, the Automatic Engine Control (AEC) system reduces RPM, lowering your fuel costs.
  •     

  • Cat Product Link™ comes standard so you can remotely monitor fuel consumption, machine health, location, and hours on demand through VisionLink®.

Simple to Operate

        

  • Start the engine with a pushbutton.  
  •     

  • One-button sticks (with adjustable joystick response and gain) make control easy for any operator.   
  •     

  • Navigate quickly through simplified control menus on the high-resolution 203 mm (8 in) touchscreen monitor.
  •     

  • Easily move soft, wet, and sticky material with a new, optional shallow profile bucket.
  •     

  • Cat continues to improve user interface functionality for operators of all skill levels. The touchscreen monitor is an easy-to-use operating tool that presents the jobsite dashboard with an intuitive format. Productivity applications are displayed in grid-view to read on-the-go, and touchscreen navigation is programmed to make sure job performance continues without any hold ups.

Work in Comfort

        

  • Wide seat (larger than previous models) adjusts for operators of all sizes.
  •     

  • Standard automatic climate control keeps you at the right temperature all shift long.
  •     

  • Convenience features include a radio, headphone port, and a USB port for connecting and charging devices.
  •     

  • Cup holder and storage space forward of the controls can hold large cups and wide cell phones; storage behind the seat can hold a hard hat, large lunchbox, and other items.

Easy to Maintain

        

  • Nearly all major mechanical components are accessed from the ground or the service platform.
  •     

  • Radiator screens can be removed easily, are simple to clean, and keep the radiators free of small debris that can be difficult to remove, such as grass clippings.
  •     

  • Engine compartment is easily accessed from the service platform; fluid caps and gauges are easily reached, and an automatic tensioner ensures you will never need to make belt adjustments.
  •     

  • Cat technology helps you monitor your machine, and the Caterpillar service network helps you maximize uptime.

Enhanced Safety

        

  • Emergency engine and electrical shut offs are also at ground level.
  •     

  • Handrails meet ISO 2867:2011 requirements; steps and platforms use anti-skid plates with countersunk bolts to help prevent slipping and tripping.
  •     

  • Operator can exit in an emergency through either the rear window or the steel top hatch.
  •     

  • An updated cab has larger windows and smaller cab posts, providing excellent visibility into the trench and in every direction.
  •     

  • Bright exterior LED lights and an optional rearview camera ensure you have total visibility on the jobsite.
  •     

  • Enhance jobsite safety. Add a swing alarm to alert people when you're rotating from trench to stockpile and back again.
