  • CAT® C7 Engine with ACERT™ Technology

    ACERT™ Technology works at the point of combustion to optimize engine performance and provide low exhaust emissions to meet U.S. EPA Tier 3 emission regulations, with exceptional performance capabilities, fuel efficiency and proven reliability.

    • Performance

      The Cat® C7 with ACERT™ Technology offers more engine power and runs at lower speeds for better fuel economy and reduced wear.

    • Automatic Engine Speed Control

      The two-stage, one-touch control maximizes fuel efficiency and reduces sound levels.

    • Engine Controller

      ADEM™ A4 (Advanced Diesel Engine Management) controller uses sensors throughout the engine to manage engine load and performance. The ADEM™ A4 controller is the muscle behind engine responsiveness, self-diagnostics, controlling emissions, and fuel economy.

    • Fuel System

      The Cat® C7 ACERT™ engine features electronic controls that govern the mechanically actuated unit fuel injection (MEUI) system. Multiple injection fuel delivery involves a high degree of precision. Precisely shaping the combustion cycles lowers combustion chamber temperatures, generating fewer emissions and optimizing fuel combustion. This translates into more work output for your fuel cost.

    • Cooling System

      To reduce fan noise, the cooling fan is driven from a viscous clutch that is electrically controlled by the machine ECM. It calculates optimum fan speed based on the target engine speed, coolant temperature, hydraulic oil temperature and actual fan speed. The Cat® C7 ACERT™ engine delivers a completely new layout that separates the cooling system from the engine compartment.

    • Air Cleaner

      The radial seal air filter features a double-layered filter core for more efficient filtration and is located in a compartment behind the cab. A warning is displayed on the monitor when dust accumulates above a preset level.

  • Operator Station

    The new cab, equipped with a 2.6 m (8'6") hydraulic cab riser provide improved visibility and comfort. The new monitor is a full-color graphical display with enhanced functionality to provide a simple, comprehensive machine interface.

    • Operator Station

      To maximize visibility, all glass is affixed directly to the cab eliminating the use of window frames. 50/50 split front windshield allows both upper and lower portions to be stored in the overhead position with a one-touch action release system. Parallelogram wiper covers almost the complete front window without leaving unwiped areas in the immediate line of sight of the operator.

    • Imageservlet?imageid=c188434&imagetype=1

      2.6 m (8'6") Hydraulic Cab Riser (HCR)

      The M325D MH and M325DL MH are equipped with a new hydraulic cab riser, which offers increased visibility and comfort with additional cab height. Providing more flexibility, the HCR allows you to operate at any height between the lowest and highest positions.

    • Imageservlet?imageid=c160344&imagetype=1


      The compact, full-color, graphical display monitor displays machine, maintenance, diagnostic and prognostic information, in twenty different languages. Monitor angle can be adjusted to minimize sun glare.

    • Consoles

      Redesigned consoles feature a simple, functional design to reduce operator fatigue, ease of switch operations and excellent visibility. Both consoles have attached armrests and allow the height of armrests to be adjusted.

    • Implement Controls

      Easy to handle joysticks with integrated push buttons and sliding switches control all implement and swing functions. The sliding switches provide modulated control for grapple rotation and hydraulic cab riser activation. They are designed to increase operator comfort and reduce operator fatigue.

    • Hydraulic Actuation Control Lever

      For added safety, this lever must be in the operate position to activate the machine controls functions.

    • Seat

      The seat provides a variety of adjustments to suit operator's size and weight. Wide adjustable armrests and a retractable seat belt are also included. An air suspension seat with headrest is provided in the M325D MH and M325 D LMH.

  • Imageservlet?imageid=c213487&imagetype=1
  • Structures

    Caterpillar's design and manufacturing techniques deliver outstanding durability and service life. Booms and sticks, made up of welded box-section structures, are fabricated with thicker plates to withstand high stresses.

    • Purpose Designed Upperframe and Counterweight

      The upperframe is specifically designed for the scrap and material handling markets. It is built of heavier strength material and thicker steel sections to handle the increased swing loads developed with the longer front parts, heavier counterweights, and cab risers used in material handling.

    • Strong and Stable Undercarriage

      The M325D MH and M325DL MH wheeled undercarriages provide maximum rigidity and long service life.

    • Material Handling Front

      The two front options meet your material handling needs with excellent lift performance and working range whether operating in close or at full reach. Built for strong performance and long service life.

    • Efficient Design of Welded Box-Section Sections

      The design with thick, multi-plate fabrications in high stress areas allows structures to flex, dissipating stresses, and maximizing strength.

    • Stress Relieving of Booms and Sticks

      Maximizes strength and minimizes structure weight for greater durability.

  • Imageservlet?imageid=c180356&imagetype=1
  • Hydraulics

    The hydraulics system provides efficient performance, unmatched in the industry, designed to provide reliability and outstanding controllability with increased lifting capacity. The Heavy Lift Mode maximizes lifting performance while maintaining excellent stability.

    • Hydraulics

      The M325D MH and M325D LMH hydraulic system is designed to handle the specific requirements of the material handling industry.

  • Work Tools - Attachments

    Orange Peel Grapples and magnets are offered to maximize performance of the M325D MH and M325D LMH.

    • Imageservlet?imageid=c180354&imagetype=1

      Walker Magnets

      The Walker Liftmaster 1.22 m (48") Lift Master magnets can be used with the M325D MH or M325D LMH. The Walker Liftmaster 1.45 m (57") can be used with the M325D LMH with the 15.65 m (51'3") front or M325D MH with 14.3 m (47'0") front. The Walker Liftmaster Walker 1.68 m (66") is available for use with the M325D LMH with the 14.3 m (47'0") front. These magnets have been designed and engineered for scrap processing applications. Ask your dealer salesperson for information on the Walker Magnet.

    • Work Tool Selection

      When choosing a work tool, please consider the work tool application, the variation of the density of the material to be handled and productivity requirements. Check with your Cat® dealer for more details on specifications, sizes, and other work tool types.
