Two models mark the first of two waves of Dash-5 excavator introductions—the ZX290LC-5 and ZX870LC-5. Four more will be coming later this summer with additional machines to follow. Features include improved hydraulics, arm digging force, bucket digging force, lift capacity, swing speed, swing torque, hydraulic flow, engine horsepower and drawbar pull. Extended frame houses updated cooling components and Tier 4-I Isuzu engines. Multifunction monitor provides enhanced diagnostic features.
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.
