Caterpillar® Expands Its Mini Excavator Range


Caterpillar is extending its range of mini excavators, with the addition of three models that will broaden the appeal of the Cat compact crawler excavator line-up, extending machine choices for customers in a variety of industry sectors.

The 300.9D weighs in at just 935 kg, making it the smallest machine in the Cat range. With an overall width of just 730 mm, this machine is capable of driving through a standard doorway, providing easy access to the most confined job sites. This will prove popular with homebuilders, rental companies and demolition contractors.

A foldable overhead protective structure is mounted on the front of the machine, allowing the fitting of an additional guard to protect the operator when the machine is used with a hydraulic breaker. Caterpillar’s work tool division will be introducing a new H25 compact breaker specifically to work with this smaller machine. Auxiliary hydraulic lines with quick disconnect fittings are supplied as standard.

A spacious operator area with easy to use controls ensures the 300.9D will be a popular choice with operators of all abilities. The folding structure and operating weight well below 1 tonne, makes the 300.9D easy to transport on a trailer behind a van or truck, while a simple single steel engine cover provides easy access to all service and maintenance points.

With an operating weight 1,325-1,515 kg, depending on specification, the Cat 301.4C fits into the line-up below the current 301.8C. The machine is available with a choice of cab or FOPS/TOPS canopy, and with standard or extending width undercarriage.

Tipping the scales at 2,577 kg with a canopy and 2,670 kg with full cab, the 302.7D CR is the lightest Cat compact radius model, making it easy to transport for a rental company or contractor.
