INTERMAT launch for two more Cat mini excavators
Cat's latest mini excavators include the 301.7D and 302.4D
Additions to Caterpillar’s mini excavator range at INTERMAT include the 301.7D and 302.4D.
With operating weights of 1.8 and 2.4tonnes respectively, the two new machines will replace the UK-built 301.8C and 302.5C later this year, when they go into production.
Key features include expandable track frames, standard and long stick options, stand and extended blade frames, plus canopy and full cab versions – the latter uses a single, left-hand door design.
Dozer float is carried over from the C series and track pedals now benefit from low-pressure pilot controls in place of mechanical linkages to the valve block.
To simplify service access, a cable release under the engine canopy allows the left-hand side panel to be unclipped without the need for tools.
