The new mid-size Cat 320F is billed low-cost-per-hour machine featuring a C4.4 ACERT Tier 4-Final engine with a 161-horsepower rating.

Weighing in just under 50,000 pounds, the machine is sized for easy transport. Based on Caterpillar engineering validation, it will consume up to 8.5 percent less fuel than the 320E in standard mode while delivering the same lifting and digging capability. It also features advanced electronic, fuel, air, and aftertreatment components like a maintenance-free DPF, and it has isochronous control that automatically manages pump and engine speed for improved fuel efficiency. Plus, boom and stick recirculation valves reduce fuel consumption and speed up cycle times, Cat says.

Cat buckets and attachments are designed and matched to maximize the 320F’s performance. Auxiliary hydraulic circuits are available to support a variety of tools like hammers, grapples, and thumbs.
