High Performance with Lower Fuel Consumption

High Performance with Lower Fuel Consumption
  • The Cat® C4.4 engine matches to your performance and production needs. The engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage V emission standards.
  • Use up to 5 percent less fuel consumption over the M315F.
  • Work confidently in space-restricted areas. Dig, swing, and dump within a tight working space.
  • Travel more easily between sites with travel speeds up to 35 kph (21.7 mph).
  • From dirt to asphalt, the excavator matches your needs to get the job done in a timely, efficient manner.
  • The advanced hydraulic system provides the optimum balance of power and efficiency while giving you the control you need for precise working requirements.
  • With up to 10 percent more swing torque, you can get the job done faster to move on to the next one. The dedicated swing pump provides consistent power for better multitasking capabilities.
  • 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).

Work in Comfort

Work in Comfort
  • Choose between Deluxe and Premium cab options.
  • The Deluxe seat is heated and air adjustable while the Premium seat is heated, ventilated, and adjusts automatically.
  • Tip-up left console makes it easier to get in and out of the cab.
  • Feel more comfortable in the cab while you work with reduced cab vibrations from advanced viscous mounts.
  • Control the excavator comfortably with easy-to-reach controls, all located in front of you.
  • Stow your gear with plenty of in-cab storage beneath and behind the seat, overhead, and in the consoles. A cup holder, bottle holder, and coat hook are also provided.
  • Bluetooth® integrated radio allows for seamless mobile phone connection to listen to music, podcasts, and hands-free calling.
  • Easily adjust the climate control system using the touchscreen monitor or jog dial.

Lower Maintenance Costs

Lower Maintenance Costs
  • 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.
  • Save up to 10 percent in maintenance parts with the new, longer lasting filters.
  • Track your machine’s filter life and maintenance intervals on the in-cab monitor.
  • Two levels of fuel filtration protect the engine from fuel contamination.
  • 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.
  • Scheduled Oil Sampling (S·O·SSM) ports are located at ground level, simplifying maintenance, and allowing for quick, easy extraction of fluid samples for analysis.

Simple to Operate

Simple to Operate
  • Start the engine with the push-to-start button, a Bluetooth key fob, or the unique Operator ID function.
  • Program your power mode and joystick preferences using Operator ID; the excavator remembers your settings each time you go to work.
  • Navigate quickly on the standard high-resolution 254 mm (10 inch) touchscreen monitor or with the aid of the jog dial control.
  • The auto axle lock presses the pedal for you to reduce your overall number of actions. The machine automatically detects when the service brake and axle need to be locked or unlocked. It releases automatically when you press the travel pedal.

Safety

Safety
  • Access daily maintenance points from ground level.
  • Keep your excavator secure with Operator ID. Use your PIN code on the monitor to enable the pushbutton starting feature.
  • The standard ROPS cab meets ISO 12117-2:2008 requirements.
  • Enlarged windows and improved machine layout increase visibility from the seat of the cab compared to the M315F. Rearview and side-view cameras are standard.
  • The service platform design provides easy, safe, and quick access to the upper service platform; the service platform steps use anti-skid punch plate to prevent slipping
  • The standard hydraulic lockout lever isolates all hydraulic and travel functions in the lowered position.
  • Swing lock prevents front linkage from moving as you travel.
  • Ground-level shutoff switch stops all fuel to the engine when activated and shuts down the machine.

Boost Efficiency and Productivity with Integrated Cat Technologies

Boost Efficiency and Productivity with Integrated Cat Technologies
  • Boost productivity versus traditional grading with optional Cat Grade with 2D system.
  • Optional Cat Payload on-board weighing system: Achieve precise load targets and increase loading efficiency with on-the-go weighing and real-time estimates of your payload without swinging.
  • Combine Payload with VisionLink® and remotely manage your production targets or take payload data with you. The monitor’s USB port lets you download your results from one shift all the way up to 30 days of work so can manage your progress without needing an internet connection or VisionLink subscription.
  • Upgrade to optional Cat Grade with Advanced 2D: Create and edit grade designs with ease on a second high-resolution 254 mm (10 in) touchscreen monitor.
  • Upgrade to optional Cat Grade with 3D: Create and edit designs with ease and see the front linkage’s full range of motion on a second high-resolution touchscreen monitor.
  • Optional 2D E-fence is integrated right out of the factory to prevent the excavator from moving outside operator defined set points.
  • All Cat Grade systems are compatible with radios and base stations from Trimble, Topcon, and Leica. Already invested in a grade infrastructure? You can install grade systems from Trimble, Topcon, and Leica onto the machine.
