Caterpillar has launched its Cat 311F LRR excavator.
It is powered by a 52kW engine that meets EU Stage IIIB emissions standards. It features a reduced radius that limits over-the-side tail swing to just 508mm, making it ideal for space-restricted job sites and enabling it to fit on most road lanes.
A 2,450kg counterweight gives it the stability and working capacity of conventional excavators, while its design allows for use of a full-sized rollover protective structure cab. The machine’s compact size is complemented by fuelsaving features and an efficient hydraulic system that powers through tough digging and easily handles a range of work tools.
It boasts low operating costs due to minimal fuel consumption, and fuel economy can be further enhanced through the Eco Mode and an engine idle shutdown feature.
