Caterpillar introduces new 20-ton excavators

Caterpillar has launched three ‘next generation’ excavators in the 20-ton size class.

The 320 GC, 320 and 323 offer increased operating efficiency, lower fuel and maintenance costs, and improve operator comfort compared to previous models.

The new Cat 320 is claimed to raise the bar for efficiency with integrated Cat Connect Technology that advances productivity gains. Standard technology combined with lower fuel and maintenance costs have been designed to deliver low-cost production in medium- to heavy-duty applications.

The new Cat 320 GC is designed for low- to medium-duty applications. Caterpillar said that it combines the right balance of productivity features with reduced fuel consumption and maintenance costs.

The new premium Cat 323 has standard integrated Cat Connect Technology and the most power and lift capacity in the line. The Cat Connect Technology is claimed to increase operating efficiency by up to 45% over traditional grading operations.

Other features include the Cat Grade with 2D system, designed to help operators reach desired grade quickly and accurately. Using the system’s E-fence feature enables the machine to work safely under structures or near traffic by preventing any part of the excavator from moving outside operator-defined set points. The standard 2D system can be upgraded to Cat Grade with Advanced 2D or Cat Grade with 3D.
