Benefits and Features

  • The Cat C4.4 engine can run on biodiesel up to B20 and meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage IV emission standards with an aftertreatment system that requires no maintenance or downtime.
  • Two power modes – eco and high power – help you manage fuel for the work you need to do.
  • Reduce engine speed and minimize fuel consumption during no-load or light-load conditions with automatic engine speed control (AEC).
  • Engine idle shutdown allows you to set intervals so you don’t waste fuel; it also helps reduce emissions and wear and tear on your excavator.
  • Work at altitudes up to 2300 m (7,545 ft) above sea level without de-rating.
  • Get the job done with a powerful and efficient hydraulic system. Major components are located close together creating less friction, reducing pressure drops, and increasing power to the ground.
  • Save energy and improve fuel efficiency with boom and stick oil regeneration. This feature improves controllability, increases productivity, and reduces operating costs.
  • Don’t let the temperature stop you from working. The excavator has a standard ambient temperature capability of 52° C (125° F). Standard cold start capability is -18° C (0° F) and an optional cold start package of -25° C (-13° F) is also available.

  • Spend more time working and less time greasing. Front linkage greasing intervals are 500 hours.
  • Check and service your machine faster with many ground-level routine service and maintenance points. Grouped filters and wide service doors allow easy access to the radiator, pump, air cleaner, and engine compartments.
  • Change your oil without the use of tools with the incorporated engine oil drain valve.
  • Three levels of fuel filtration protect the engine from dirty fuel.
  • Blowing out debris is easy with wide clearance between the radiator, oil cooler, and air conditioning condenser.
  • Extract fluid samples for analysis quickly and easily with S∙O∙S ports.

  • Count on your machine to withstand wear throughout the years. Boom, sticks, and other high-stress areas are reinforced with thick multi-plate fabrications, castings, and forgings to ensure quality and reliability.
  • Self-lubricating bearings extend service intervals and increase the machine’s uptime.
  • Elongated bolts secure the large swing bearing to help handle the most swing-intensive work.
  • Protect your moving parts with the Grease Lubricated Track (GLT) undercarriage. Keep water, dust, and debris out and grease sealed in while prolonging wear life and reducing travel noise.
  • Robust bottom guards protect machine components that may be damaged while swinging.
  • Hydraulic snubbers on the boom and stick cylinders reduce end-of-stroke impact prolonging the machine life.
  • Maintain track alignment and improve overall performance while traveling or working on slopes with an idler guard and bolt-on center guard.
  • The upper frame uses specially designed mountings to support the heavy-duty cab and the lower frame is reinforced to enhance component durability.
  • You are supported. The Cat Dealer Network is there to provide assistance when you need it.

  • Product Link™ collects data automatically and accurately from your assets – any type and any brand. Information such as location, hours, fuel usage, productivity, idle time, maintenance alerts, diagnostic codes, and machine health can be viewed online through web and mobile applications.
  • Boost productivity with optional Cat GRADE Control 2D Depth and Slope. Receive real-time bucket tip elevation guidance for flat and sloping planes.
  • Upgrade to optional Cat GRADE Control – Depth and Slope, 3D capability which provides vertical and horizontal positioning at the bucket tip. The 3D design plan indicates precisely where to work and how much to cut or fill.

  • Work comfortably in the spacious, quiet cab with automatic climate control; an adjustable heated seat increases comfort and reduces operator fatigue.
  • Control the excavator comfortably with easy to access controls and switches.
  • Adjust the joystick consoles and armrests to a comfortable position.
  • Navigate quickly on the standard LCD monitor which is programmable in 42 languages.
  • Stow your gear with plenty of in-cab storage to the front and rear of the right-side console and behind the seat. A cup holder, document holder, and coat hook are also provided.
  • Keep your personal devices conveniently charged using the two standard 12V power ports. Each provide up to 10A of power.

  • Rollover Protection Structure (ROPS) certified cab provides a safe work environment.
  • Enter and exit the cab and walk on the upper structure safely with handrails and anti-skid plating which are meant to reduce slipping and tripping.
  • Increase visibility with a standard rearview camera and mirrors. The camera is integrated into the counterweight to protect against damage.
  • Stay safe in an emergency situation. The skylight and 70/30 front window function as emergency exits.
  • The hydraulic activation lever lock cuts the pilot pressure for the control levers, preventing the operator from starting the engine when in a locked position.
  • Shut the engine down quickly and easily in the event of an emergency with a secondary engine shutoff switch.
  • Protect yourself from overhead impact with the optional Falling Objects Guarding System (FOGS) and other attachments available from your Cat dealer.

  • Transition quickly between attachments with optional auxiliary hydraulics.
  • Expand your work capabilities with attachments for a variety of applications including breaking rock in quarries, preparing trenches, demolition work, and moving and handling material.
  • Cat dealers can install hydraulic kits to properly operate attachments, maximizing machine uptime and profits.
