Caterpillar Unveils New Excavator
The new Cat® 313F L GC hydraulic excavator is designed for the user whose bottom line depends on reliable performance at a low cost per hour.
The machine features an efficient Cat C3.4B engine that meets US EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IIIB emission standards and that’s light on fuel with no need for diesel exhaust fluid.
It has a proven one-pump hydraulic system that makes everyday tasks like light excavating, spreading top soil, setting utilities, and fine grading floors easy to do. It also comes equipped with unique features like a stout and stable long undercarriage, a quiet and comfortable full size Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) cab, and uncomplicated and easy to reach service points that will please operators and mechanics.
The 313F L GC’s 70 horsepower (52 kW) engine provides all the power needed to run the machine’s hydraulic system. The new and simple hydraulic system delivers ample and reliable power for digging, lifting and attachment use.
The simplicity of the 313F L GC’s design contributes to its low owning and operating costs. The machine features a pilot manifold in the valve block to eliminate the need for a pilot pump, filter, or lines. The fuel system and manual priming pump also reduce the need for multiple filters, and the engine’s diesel particulate filter is compact and maintenance free.
Wide service doors provide plenty of access to cooling, pump, and engine compartments, and everyday maintenance points are reachable at ground level.
