High Performance with Lower Fuel Consumption


  • Automatically reduce your engine speed and minimize fuel consumption during no-load or light-load conditions with automatic engine speed control (AEC).

  • Standard one-touch low idle saves fuel by instantly reducing engine speed to 1,100 rpm at the push of a button. Return the engine speed to the throttle position by hitting the button again or simply moving the joysticks.

  • The Cat C3.4B engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage IIIB emission standards and is equipped with turbo protection and a maintenance-free emissions package that enhances service life.

  • The engine does not require diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).

  • Work at altitudes up to 2300 m (7,545 ft) above sea level without de-rating.

  • Don’t let the cold stop your work. The machine features standard cold start capability of –18° C (0° F). An optional cold start package of –25° C (–13° F) is also available.

  • Calculate your exact work demands to deliver the stick and bucket force needed to get work done with a load-sensing pump and main control valve.

  • Reduce emissions, save fuel, and extend your service intervals with engine idle shutdown.

  • 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.

Reduced Maintenance Costs


  • Spend more time working and less time greasing. Front linkage greasing intervals are 500 hours.

  • Reduce friction and pressure drops with a simplified hydraulic layout. The Flow Summation System uses shorter tubes and lines and includes a pilot manifold in the valve block eliminating the need for a pilot pump and filter.

  • Reduce your filter maintenance time. The low-pressure fuel system and manual priming pump reduce the need for multiple filters and the engine’s diesel particulate filter is compact and maintenance free.

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

  • 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.

  • Easily clean the redesigned cooling package. Wider clearance is provided between the radiator, oil cooler, and air conditioning condenser making it easy to blow off debris with an air nozzle.

Reliability and Durability you can Count on


  • Count on your machine to withstand wear throughout the years. Boom and sticks are built with internal baffle plates and are robot welded. High-stress areas are manufactured with large box- section structures made of thick multi-plate fabrications, castings, and forgings.

  • The upper frame uses specially designed mountings to support the heavy-duty cab and the lower frame is reinforced to enhance component durability.

  • Robust bottom guards protect machine components that may be damaged while swinging and hydraulic snubbers in the boom.

  • Stick cylinders reduce end-of-stroke impact prolonging the machine life.

  • Stay balanced in a variety of applications with the standard 2.45 mt (2.7 t) counterweight.

  • The front linkage pins’ inner bearing surfaces are welded with a self-lubricating bearing to extend service intervals and increase your machine’s uptime.

  • Increase durability and experience smooth load transitions with long welded track frames.

  • Elongated bolts secure the large swing bearing to help handle the most swing-intensive work.

  • You are supported. The Cat Dealer Network is there to provide assistance when you need it.

Unmatched Comfort


  • Work comfortably and safely in a spacious and quiet cab that provides excellent visibility from the operator’s seat to keep you aware of your surroundings. An updated, adjustable seat increases comfort and reduces operator fatigue.

  • Control the excavator comfortably with easy to access controls and switches

  • Navigate quickly on the standard LCD monitor which is programmable in 42 languages.

  • Stow your gear with plenty of in-cab storage beneath and behind the seat, and overhead. A cup holder, document holder, and coat hook are also provided.

  • The heating ventilation air cooling (HVAC) system reduces noise levels and automatic climate control helps maintain a consistent cab temperature.

  • Adjust the joystick consoles and armrests to a position comfortable for you.

  • Use the standard auxiliary audio port to connect personal devices.



  • Rollover Protection Structure (ROPS)-certified cab provides a safe work environment.

  • The hydraulic activation lever locks out all hydraulic functions.

  • Enter and exit the cab and walk on the upper structure safely with handrails, anti-skid plating and countersunk bolts which are meant to reduce slipping and tripping.

  • Fan guards reduce the risk of coming into contact with the engine cooling fan.

  • Shut the engine down quickly and easily in the case of emergency with the ground-level engine shutoff switch.

  • Stay safe in the case of emergency. The rear window features a secondary exit system.

  • Increase visibility with the optional rear-view camera and mirrors.

  • Protect yourself from overhead impacts with the optional Falling Objects Guarding System (FOGS).

Versatile Solution for Light to Medium Duty Applications


  • Quickly and easily change attachments with optional auxiliary hydraulics.

  • Expand your work capabilities with a variety of attachments including thumbs, buckets, hammers, and couplers.

  • Cat dealers can install hydraulic kits to properly operate attachments, maximizing machine uptime and profits.
