HIGH PERFORMANCE WITH LOWER FUEL CONSUMPTION

        

  • The high fuel efficiency keeps you focused on the job and budget. 
  •     

  • The Cat C7.1 engine gives you powerful hydraulic power to work with different types of material.
  •     

  • Large bucket capacity means fewer passes to move material faster.
  •     

  • Get up to 7% more productivity with increased bucket and stick forces and larger bucket compared to the 330.
  •     

  • Match the excavator to the job with two power modes – Power and Smart. Smart mode automatically matches engine and hydraulic power to digging conditions, providing max power when needed and reducing power when it isn’t to help save fuel.
  •     

  • The high-efficiency hydraulic fan cools the engine on demand to help reduce fuel consumption; available reverse function makes it easy to keep cores clean.
  •     

  • Self-sharpening Advansys™ bucket tips option increase production and lower costs.
  •     

  • Auxiliary hydraulic options give you the versatility to use a wide range of Cat attachments.
  •     

  • Don’t let the temperature stop you from working. The excavator has a high-ambient capability of 50°C (122°F) and cold start capability of -18°C (0°F).

RELIABLE IN TOUGH CONDITIONS

        

  • Reinforced booms, sticks, and linkage keep you moving from job to job. The reinforced frame makes the machine more durable and built to last.
  •     

  • The increased track width of +150 mm (6 in) gives you more critical stability to work with large buckets or on uneven surfaces while still being within transport width requirements.
  •     

  • Automatic hydraulic oil warm up gets you to work faster in cold temperatures and helps prolong the life of components. 
  •     

  • Two levels of filtration protect the engine from diesel fuel.
  •     

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

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

  • Work up to 4500 m (14,760 ft) above sea level with engine power derate above 3000 m (9,840 ft).

SIMPLE TO OPERATE

        

  • Start the engine with the push-to-start button.
  •     

  • Program each joystick button, including power mode, response, and pattern, using Operator ID; the machine will remember what you set each time you go to work.
  •     

  • Make moving the excavator much easier with Cat Stick Steer. Simply push a button and use one hand to travel and turn instead of both hands or feet on levers or pedals.
  •     

  • Not sure how a function works or how to maintain the excavator? Always have the operator’s manual at your fingertips in the touchscreen monitor.
  •     

  • Use the in-monitor QR code to learn about machine and technology features through a full suite of “how-to” videos.

WORK COMFORTABLY IN CAB

        

  • The comfort cab offers a mechanically adjustable seat suspension and an automatic heating/air conditioning system.
  •     

  • Navigate quickly with the high-resolution 203 mm (8 in) touchscreen monitor to view machine information.   
  •     

  • Control the excavator comfortably with easy-to-reach controls all located in front of you.   
  •     

  • Stow your gear with plenty of in-cab storage beneath and behind the seat, overhead, and in the consoles.
  •     

  • Use the standard radio’s USB ports and Bluetooth® technology to connect personal devices and make hands-free calls.

EASY TO MAINTAIN

        

  •  Long life for fuel, oil and air filters keeps you out of the shop and working on the job longer.
  •     

  • Oil and fuel filters are grouped together and located on the righthand side of the machine for easy maintenance.
  •     

  • The air intake filter with precleaner has double the dust holding capacity of the previous air intake filter.   
  •     

  • Check the hydraulic system oil and easily drain fuel system water and fuel tank water from ground level.
  •     

  • Track your excavator’s filter life and maintenance intervals via the in-cab monitor. The optional engine oil sensor tracks your oil levels, which helps to speed up your daily maintenance routine.
  •     

  • The 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 high-efficiency hydraulic fan has an optional automatic reverse function to keep cores free from debris, eliminating the need for any operator interaction.
  •     

  • 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.
  •     

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

SAFELY HOME EVERY DAY

        

  • The Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) cab meets ISO12117-2:2008 requirements.
  •     

  • Enjoy great visibility into the trench, in each swing direction, and behind you with the help of smaller cab pillars, larger windows, and a flat engine hood design.
  •     

  • A ground-level shutoff switch stops all fuel to the engine when activated and shuts down the machine.
  •     

  • Add optional rear- and right-hand-side cameras for added visibility to your surroundings.
  •     

  • Serrated steps and anti-skid punch plate on the service platform help prevent slipping. 
  •     

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