Caterpillar launches new hydraulic excavator

The new Cat 335 next-gen hydraulic excavator boasts the tightest tail swing radius in the industry, according to the manufacturer.

The new 335 features increased stick and bucket cylinder sizes to provide 15 per cent greater digging forces to power through hard ground and asphalt.

Hydraulic power is increased by 20 per cent to boost productivity. Yet Caterpillar says fuel consumption remains similar to the previous model.

The Cat C7.1 engine powering the 335 meets stringent emissions standards with a no-maintenance aftertreatment system.

There are three selectable operating modes – Power, Smart and Eco – with one-touch low idle help to reduce fuel consumption by up to 10 per cent.

The manufacturer says integrated, simple-to-use Cat technologies on the new 335 Next Gen excavator assist operator performance, no matter the experience level, to increase machine efficiency by up to 45 per cent compared to manual operation.

Cat Payload technology offers on-the-go weighing of material to help prevent overloading or underloading to maximise efficiency.
