CAT Excavators: Key Benefits & Features
Powerful, Efficient Design
When it comes to moving heavy material quickly and efficiently, you need hydraulic horsepower – the type of ground-breaking power Cat excavators can deliver. Major hydraulic components like pumps and valves are located close together so shorter tubes and lines can be used. This design leads to less friction loss, reduced pressure drops, and more power to the ground for the work you need to get done.
The heavy lift mode increases machine system pressure to improve lift – a nice benefit in certain situations. Heavy lift mode also reduces engine speed and pump flow in order to improve controllability.
Control Like No Other
Controllability is one of the main attributes of Cat excavators, and one of the key contributors to this is the main control valve. The valve opens slowly when your range of joystick lever movement is small and opens rapidly when movement is high. It puts flow where you need it when you need it, which leads to smoother operation, greater efficiency, and lower fuel consumption.
Fuel Savers That Add Up
The 336F L/LN consumes less fuel than the previous series model, and the automatic engine speed control contributes by lowering rpm when the machine doesn’t need it for work. You also have a choice of two power modes – standard or eco modes. Simply change between modes through the console switch panel to meet the work needs in front of you. Collectively, all of these benefits add up to reduced fuel consumption, reduced exhaust and sound emissions, reduced repair and maintenance costs, and increased engine life for you.
A Cool Design for Any Temperature
336F Cat excavators feature a side-by-side cooling system that allows you to put the machine to work in extremely hot and cold conditions. The system is completely separated from the engine compartment to reduce noise and heat. Plus it features easy-to-clean cores and an efficient variable-speed fan.
Biodiesel Not a Problem
The C9.3 engine can run on up to B20 biodiesel fuel that meets ASTM 6751 standards – all to give you more potential fuel-saving fl exibility.
Every Stage IV ACERT engine is equipped with a combination of proven electronic, fuel, air, and aftertreatment components. Applying these time-tested technologies lets us meet your high expectations for productivity, fuel efficiency, reliability, and service life.
Built to work in your tough, heavy-duty applications
Long (L) and Long Narrow (LN) undercarriages contribute significantly to outstanding stability and durability. Track shoes, links, rollers, idlers, and final drives are all built with long-lasting, high-tensile-strength steel for longterm durability.
Cat Grease Lubricated Track 2 (GLT2) track link protects moving parts by keeping water, debris, and dust out and grease sealed in, which delivers longer wear life and reduced noise when traveling.
Optional guide guards help maintain track alignment to improve the machine’s overall performance – whether you’re traveling on a flat, heavy bed of rock or a steep, wet field of mud.
Cat excavators are well-built machines designed to give you a long service life. The excavator frame is designed to take stress and increase the machine’s digging force, which leads to more productivity.
The counterweight is built with steel plates and reinforced to make it less susceptible to damage.
Do more jobs with one machine with a variety of attachments.
Get the Most from One Machine
The line of Cat excavators are versatile machines that packs a lot of performance into a small package. You can easily expand that performance by utilizing a variety of attachments offered by Cat Work Tools.
Change Jobs Quickly
Cat quick couplers bring the ability to quickly change attachments and switch from job to job. The Cat Universal or the Cat Pin Grabber couplers are the secure way to decrease downtime and increase job site flexibility and overall productivity.
Dig, Rip and Load
A wide range of buckets dig everything from basic top soil to extreme, harsh material like ore and high quartzite granite. Rip through rock as an alternative to blasting in quarries. High-capacity buckets load trucks in a minimum number of passes for maximum productivity.
Break, Demolish and Scrap
A hydraulic hammer ably equips your machine for breaking rock in quarries. It will also make taking down bridge pillars and heavily reinforced concrete on road demolition jobs no problem.
Multi-processor and pulverizer attachments make your machine ideal for demolition jobs and processing the resulting debris. Shears with 360° rotation mount to the machine for processing scrap steel and metal.
Set Up Your Machine for Profitability
Ohio Cat can install hydraulic kits to properly operate all Cat Work Tool attachments, maximizing the machine’s uptime and your profit.
