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.

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.

The Cat 336F L XE Hybrid hydraulic excavator captures and reuses energy, delivering an estimated fuel savings of up to 20 percent compared with its standard 336 counterpart.

The SK25 is a new model for Kobelco, and the SK17 has been upgraded. Dig depths are 9 feet 2 inches and 7 feet 3 inches, respectively.

The 159-horsepower 210G LC hydraulic excavator uses a John Deere PowerTech PVS 6.8L diesel with an automatically regenerating DPF

With a 55-horsepower engine, the PC78US-10 is able to attain Tier 4-Final emissions standards without a DPF.
