The straight boom excavator has reinforced booms, sticks, frame, and bucket cylinder guard. Operator protective guards shield the roof and front reinforced P5A laminated windows from falling debris during demolition. A sloped track frame prevents mud and debris accumulation, and sealed track pins and bushings reduce travel noise and increase undercarriage life.

Powered by a 275-horsepower Cat C7.1 diesel engine, the demolition excavator has three power modes that match engine and hydraulic power to the task. The electrohydraulic system powers through different types of materials. The machine has a standard quick coupler, as well as medium and high-pressure circuits enabling use of a range of attachments.

Cat Command provides remote excavator operation. Onboard electronics, vision systems, and offboard controls give operators the same control response, feel and accuracy of operating inside the cab, according to the company. Command kits offer the option of line-of-sight operation via the Command console or non-line-of-sight operation using the Command station.
