Cat 304 Mini Excavator Operating Costs

Dec. 1, 2021

Cat 304 mini excavator has an operating weight of 9,867 pounds and can dig to 10 feet 6 inches.

The Caterpillar excavator has a reduced-radius design with a 66.9-inch track width that is 10 inches slimmer than the 304 E2.

Daily maintenance checks for the Cat 304 are made from ground level through side doors. Expanded use of common parts throughout the line plus their damage-resistant exterior construction help to reduce parts inventory investment and lower repair costs, according to the company.

Product specialist Greg Worley explains how the new design facilitates maintenance and repair of the excavator.
