  •     

  • Do all daily maintenance at ground level.
  •     

  • Boost productivity with proactive service reminders. The integrated vehicle health management system alerts the operator with step-by-step service guidance along with parts needed so you don't experience any unnecessary downtime.
  •     

  • Check engine oil level quickly and safely with the latest ground-level engine oil dipstick; fill and check engine oil on top of the machine with a conveniently located second dipstick.
  •     

  • Track your excavator’s filter life and maintenance intervals via the in-cab monitor.
  •     

  • No required maintenance on the Cat Clean Emissions Module.
  •     

  • Using Cat genuine oil and filters and doing your typical S∙O∙S monitoring will double the current service interval to 1,000 hours, giving you greater uptime to do more work.
  •     

  • The latest hydraulic oil filter provides improved filtration performance,anti-drain valves to keep oil clean when the filter is replaced, and longer life with a 3,000 hour replacement interval – 50% longer than previous filter designs.
  •     

  • The latest high-efficiency electric cooling fans only run when needed and reverse to keep cores free from debris.
  •     

  • S·O·S ports simplify maintenance and allow for quick, easy extraction of samples for fluid analysis.

RELIABILITY YOU CAN COUNT ON

        

  • Work up to 3000 m (9,840 ft) above sea level without de-rating.
  •     

  • Standard high-ambient temperature capability is 52º C (125º F) with cold start capability at –32º C (–25º F).
  •     

  • Auto warm up speeds up hydraulic oil warming in cold temperatures and helps prolong the life of components.
  •     

  • Three levels of fuel filtration protect the engine from dirty diesel fuel.
  •     

  • Grease sealed between track pins and bushings reduces travel noise and prevents debris from entering to increase undercarriage life.
  •     

  • The center track guiding guard helps keep the excavator track aligned when traveling and working on slopes.
  •     

  • The sloped track frame prevents mud and debris accumulation, helping reduce risk of track damage.

SAFELY HOME EVERY DAY

        

  • Access 100% of daily maintenance points from ground level – no need for you to climb on top of the excavator.
  •     

  • Keep your excavator secure with Operator ID. Use your PIN code on the monitor to enable the push button starting feature.

  •     

  • Make service work easier and safer with optional inspection lighting. With the flip of a switch, lights will illuminate the engine, pump, battery, and radiator compartments to enhance visibility.

SIMPLE TO OPERATE

        

  • Start the engine with a push button; use a Bluetooth® key fob, or the unique Operator ID function.
  •     

  • Program each joystick button, including response and pattern, using Operator ID; it will also remember climate control fan and radio settings.
