Cat Grade Control as Standard Equipment for Cat® 323 Excavators

Caterpillar has announced that its new Cat® 323 excavators will come equipped with fuel and labor-saving Cat Grade Control as standard equipment.

The technology is a factory-integrated system that helps operators get to grade quickly, efficiently, and accurately using real-time positioning and cut-and-fill data that is displayed on the standard cab monitor.

The system helps the excavator operator get digging and slope work done right the first time to save money on fuel and materials, and it minimizes the need for a grade checker and other support equipment.

“We’ve offered Cat Grade Control as an option in the past, but with more and more customers asking us to help them lower their operating costs, we decided to make this technology standard on the 323 excavator,” says Zach Kauk, worldwide product manager for Cat 11- to 35-ton (10- to 32-tonne) excavators.

Cat Grade Control will become standard equipment on the most popular configurations of the 323 excavator in North America and Europe in late 2014.
