Equipment Type

 Crawler Excavators

Crawler Excavators are utilitarian machines that can dig trenches, load trucks, lift pipe, and handle attachments, such as hydraulic breakers, shears, and grapples. These machines range in size from the "mini" that fits through a back-yard gate, to those in mining applications and have operating weights of a quarter million pounds or more.

A 119-horsepower Volvo D4J diesel brings the EC140E excavator into Tier 4-Final compliance and boosts engine power by 5 percent and fuel efficiency by 10 percent compared to its predecessor

The 90Z-1 zero tailswing excavator has been added to JCB lineup.

The EC20D compact excavator has been upgraded to meet Tier 4-Final requirements with a Volvo D0.9A diesel that produces 16.3 horsepower.

The PC210LC-11 excavator has a Tier 4-Final SAA6D107E-3 engine that provides 7 more horsepower, at 165, than its predecessor.

Extending an industry trend that targets lower-hour users with less expensive, base machines that stay under 75 horsepower to avoid DEF aftertreatment, Caterpillar has introduced the 313F L GC hydraulic excavator, a companion unit to the higher-spec'd 312E L.
