Larger stick and bucket cylinders and higher hydraulic power can help to increase productivity up to 20%. This is about 20% increased fuel efficiency versus the 335F.
20% increased hydraulic power for greater production.
15% increase in bucket and stick force thanks to larger diameter cylinders.
Compact radius helps you work in tight spaces.
5% improved swing torque makes working on slopes easier.
Increase operating efficiency up to 45% with standard Cat technologies that lower operator fatigue and operating costs, including fuel consumption and daily maintenance.
The C7.1 engine meets the latest emission standards. Aftertreatment system requires no maintenance or downtime.
The advanced hydraulic system provides the optimum balance of power and efficiency while giving you the control you need for precise digging requirements.
Match the excavator to the job with power modes; let Smart mode automatically match engine and hydraulic power to digging conditions. Smart mode can save you an average of 10% in fuel consumption with no impact on productivity.
Advansys™ bucket tips increase penetration and improve cycle times. Tip changes can be done quickly 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.
Optional SmartBoom™ lets the boom freely travel up and down without using any pump flow so operators can focus on stick and bucket work, reducing operator stress and fuel consumption.
Two blade widths are now available: 3.6 m (11'8") wide to cover up to 850 mm (33") shoes or 3.45 m (11'3") wide to cover 600 mm (24") shoes.
Don’t let the temperature stop you from working. The excavator has a standard high-ambient temperature capability of 52°C (125.6°F) without de-rate and cold start capability of 18°C (0°F). An optional -32°C (-25°F) cold start package is available.
Technology That Gets Work Done
Improve productivity with standard ease-of-use features, including Cat GRADE with 2D, Cat Payload, and Cat 2D E-Fence.
Standard Grade Assist helps you stay on grade – simply and effortlessly – with single-lever digging.
Set your desired bucket angle and let Bucket Assist automatically maintain the angle in sloping, leveling, fine grading, and trenching applications.
Automatically stop excavator swing at operator-defined set points in truck loading and trenching applications with Swing Assist, which will help you use less effort and consume less fuel.
Standard Cat Payload on-board weighing system lets you 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.
Upgrade to optional Cat GRADE with Advanced 2D to 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 to use 3D designs and GNSS technology to assist the operator in reaching the desired grade faster and accurately. The optional GNSS antenna coming with the Cat GRADE with 3D option will be flush mounted on the counterweight, allowing for a more protected design while providing excellent visibility to the sky and satellites.
Work In Comfort
Choose from Deluxe or Premium cabs – both with automatic climate control.
The Deluxe seat is heated and air adjustable. The Premium seat is heated and cooled and adjusts automatically.
Tip-up console on the Deluxe and Premium cab improves ingress/egress by approximately 45%.
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 and in the consoles. A cup holder, document holder, bottle holder, and coat hook are also provided.
Use the standard radio’s USB ports and Bluetooth® technology to connect personal devices and make hands-free calls.
Simple To Operate
Start the engine with a push button using a Bluetooth key fob (optional), smartphone app (optional), or the unique Operator ID function.
Program your power mode and joystick preferences using Operator ID; the excavator will remember what you set each time you go to work.
Navigate quickly on the standard high-resolution 203 mm (8 in.) touchscreen monitor, with the optional 254 mm (10 in.) touchscreen monitor, or with the aid of the jog dial control.
Not sure how a function works or how to maintain the excavator? Always have the operator’s manual at your fingertips in the touchscreen monitor.
Find the tool you need – even if it’s hidden beneath overgrowth or debris. The excavator’s onboard Bluetooth reader can locate any work tool equipped with Cat asset tracking devices up to a range of 60 m (200 ft) (optional).
Lower Maintenance Costs
Expect up to 25% less maintenance costs than the 335F (savings calculated over 12,000 machine hours).
Check engine oil level quickly and safely with the new ground-level engine oil dipstick; fill and check engine oil on top of the machine with a conveniently located second dipstick.
Track your excavator’s filter life and maintenance intervals via the in-cab monitor.
No required maintenance on the Cat Clean Emissions Module.
Using Cat genuine oil and filters and doing your typical S∙O∙S monitoring will double the current service interval to 1,000 hours, giving you greater uptime to do more work.
Expect the new air intake filter with precleaner to last up to 1,000 hours – a 100% increase over the previous filter.
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% longer than previous filter designs.
High-efficiency cooling fans run only when needed; you can program intervals, so they automatically reverse to keep cores clean without interrupting your work.
S•O•S ports are on ground level, simplifying maintenance and allowing for quick, easy extraction of fluid samples for analysis.
Built-In Safety Features
Lift Assist helps you avoid tipping. With visual and auditory alerts, you’ll know if your load is within the excavator’s safe working range limits.
Access all service points from ground level – no need for you to climb on top of the excavator.
The standard ROPS cab meets ISO 12117-2:2008 requirements.
Enjoy great visibility into the trench, in each swing direction, and behind you with the help of smaller cab pillars, larger windows, and a flat engine hood design.
The standard hydraulic lockout lever isolates all hydraulic and travel functions in the lowered position.
Ground-level shut-off switch stops all fuel to the engine when activated and shuts down the machine.
A rearview camera and a right-side-view camera are standard. Upgrade to 360° visibility and you’ll easily visualize objects and personnel around the excavator in a single view.
New service platform design in the front of the machine provides easy, safe, and quick access to upper service platform; the service platform steps use anti-skid punch plate to prevent slipping.
