Note (1)
Net power advertised is the power available at the flywheel when the engine is equipped with fan, air intake system, exhaust system, and alternator with engine speed at 1,800 rpm. Advertised power is tested per the specified standard in effect at the time of manufacture.
Note (2)
¹Cat engines are compatible with diesel fuel blended with the following lower-carbon intensity fuels** up to: 100% biodiesel FAME (fatty acid methyl ester)* or 100% renewable diesel, HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) and GTL (gas-to-liquid) fuels. Refer to guidelines for successful application. Please consult your Cat dealer or “Caterpillar Machine Fluids Recommendations” (SEBU6250) for details. *For use of blends higher than 20% biodiesel, consult your Cat dealer. **Tailpipe greenhouse gas emissions from lower-carbon intensity fuels are essentially the same as traditional fuels.

  • Match the excavator to the job with power modes; let Smart mode automatically match engine and hydraulic power to digging conditions.
  • 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 standard high-ambient temperature capability of 52° C (125° F) and cold start capability of –18° C (0° F). An optional –32° C (–25° F) cold start package is available.
  • Work up to 3000 m (9,840 ft) above sea level without de-rating.
  • Don’t let the temperature stop you from working. The excavator has a standard high-ambient temperature capability of 52° C (125° F) and cold start capability of –18° C (0° F). An optional – 32° C (–25° F) cold start package is available.
  • Auto warm up speeds up hydraulic oil warming in cold temperatures and helps prolong the life of components.
  • Two 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 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.
  • The cab has a wide seat that adjusts for operators of all sizes.
  • Control the excavator comfortably with easy-to-reach controls all located in front of you.
