Air Conditioning System

Air Conditioning
The air conditioning system on this machine contains the fluorinated greenhouse gas refrigerant R134a (Global Warming Potential = 1430). The system contains 0.9 hg of refrigerant which has a CO2 equivalent of 1.287 metric tonnes.

Fuel Saving, Job Matched Performance

  • Use up to 10 percent less fuel than the 316F to keep you moving and productive on the jobsite.
  • The advanced hydraulic system provides the optimum balance of power and efficiency while providing the control needed for precise digging requirements.
  • Smart mode meets your power needs by automatically matching engine and hydraulic power to digging conditions.
  • Get higher production in demanding applications, easier penetration into piles, and faster cycle times with Cat Advansys™ bucket tips. Quickly change tips with a simple lug wrench instead of a hammer or special tool, improving safety and uptime.
  • Auxiliary hydraulic options give you the versatility to use a wide range of Cat attachments.
  • The Cat C3.6 engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage V emission standards.
  • Product Link™ comes standard so you can remotely monitor machine health, location, hours, and fuel consumption on-demand through the VisionLink® online interface.

Lower Maintenance Costs

  • Expect up to 20 percent less maintenance costs than the 316F.
  • Quickly check and service your machine with all daily maintenance points accessible from ground level.
  • Check the engine oil level quickly and safely from the ground. Fill and check engine oil on top of the machine with a conveniently located second dipstick.
  • The new hydraulic oil filter provides improved filtration performance, anti-drain valves to keep oil clean when the filter is replaced, and longer life with a 3,000-hour replacement interval – 50 percent longer than previous filter designs.
  • Track your machine’s filter life and maintenance intervals on the in-cab monitor.
  • S·O·SSM ports are located at ground level, simplifying maintenance and allowing for quick, easy extraction of fluid samples for analysis.

World-Class Versatility

  • Do more with one machine. The 317 GC’s expanded work tool offering helps you tackle your jobsite’s various applications with ease.
  • Work efficiently with the 317 GC's large working envelope. Move more material without having to reposition the machine.
  • Easily move the excavator from jobsite to jobsite. The 317 GC’s weight makes it easily transportable without compromising on the performance you need.

Work in Comfort

  • Increase operator productivity with an all-new, larger cab.
  • The cab has a wide seat that adjusts for operators of all sizes.
  • Advanced viscous mounts reduce cab vibration.
  • Control the excavator comfortably with easy-to-reach controls, all located in front of you.
  • Stow your equipment with plenty of in-cab storage beneath and behind the seat, overhead, and in the consoles.
  • Use the standard radio’s USB ports and Bluetooth® technology to connect personal devices and make hands-free calls.

Reliable, Whatever the Environment

  • Don’t let the temperature stop you from working. The 317 GC has a standard high-ambient temperature capability of 52°C (125°F) without derate and an optional cold-start capability of -25°C (-13°F).
  • Automatic hydraulic warm-up speeds up hydraulic oil warming in cold temperatures and helps prolong the life of components.
  • 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 the risk of track damage.

Simple to Operate

  • Start the engine with the push of a button, a Bluetooth key fob, smartphone app, or the unique Operator ID function.
  • Program your preferred power mode and joystick settings using your operator ID. The excavator will automatically remember your selections.
  • Navigate quickly on the standard high-resolution touchscreen monitor or with the aid of the jog dial control.
  • The Cat PL161 Attachment Locator is a Bluetooth device that makes finding your attachments and other gear quick and easy. The Cat App on your phone will locate the device automatically.
  • Not sure how a function works or how to maintain your machine? Simply access the operator’s manual through the touchscreen monitor.

Safety

  • Access all daily maintenance points from ground level – no need for you to climb on top of the machine.
  • The standard ROPS cab meets ISO 12117-2:2008 requirements.
  • The standard hydraulic lockout lever isolates all hydraulic and travel functions in the lowered position.
  • A ground-level shutoff switch stops all fuel to the engine and shuts down the machine when activated.
  • A rearview and right-side-view camera are standard, increasing safety and visibility.
  • New service platform design provides easy, safe, and quick access to the upper service platform. Prevent slipping with the anti-skid punch plate on the platform steps.
  • Brightly colored seatbelts allow easy recognition of properly utilized safety restraints.
