Cat 316E revealed at INTERMAT
Caterpillars 316E excavator Live at INTERMAT
Cat’s latest E-series excavator is the 16.7tonne 316E. It replaces the 315D and gets a Cat C4.4 Acert engine to meet EU Stage IIIb emissions. It is the first of three smaller E series being launched by Cat this year.
Electric boom regeneration is also available on the new model, and combined with the latest engine technology, gives the company a fuel-saving focus.
There is a new cab with lower noise levels – typically a 4dB(a) reduction over its D series predecessor – and improved comfort and visibility too. The 316E will soon be joined by the 312E and 318E.
