The PM300 Series is designed for small-to-medium job sites where compact dimensions are required.

The Series can be configured with one of three drum widths and a choice of wheel or track undercarriage. An articulating right leg can be positioned outboard to provide additional stability during demanding cuts or positioned inboard for flush cutting on the right side. The Series is equipped with a 325-horsepower Cat C9 ACERT engine, matched with an optimized cooling system, to power the rotor drive. The PM310 offers a 39.4-inch rotor and chamber; the PM312 offers a 48.2-inch rotor and chamber; and the PM313 offers a 51.2-inch rotor and chamber. The rotor system is extended inward towards the chassis as opposed to extending outside the frame. This allows the three models to possess the same overall machine width despite different width of cut. This design feature also enables the swinging leg on the right side to position in-line with the rotor for high-production cuts or inboard in front of the rotor for flush cutting.

The controls for the PM300 Series are similar to other Cat cold planers with grouped functions and backlit buttons. A dust abatement system is standard in countries that require it (optional in all other regions). It can be enhanced with an additional water spray system. Ballast systems are available for specific applications.
