Caterpillar has just rolled-out the new Cat® 323F L excavator, specially designed with reinforced structures and massive counterweights to take on the most severe applications.
The heavy duty booms and sticks feature high strength steel and box section construction with internal baffles for added durability.
This F Series excavator delivers a 5 percent improvement in fuel efficiency, compared with the 323E L, resulting primarily from the efficiency of the 164-horsepower (122 kW/166 PS) Cat C7.1 ACERT™ engine that meets EU Stage IV emission standards.
The 323F L powerful hydraulic system places major components in close proximity to minimize piping lengths and to reduce frictional losses and pressure drops.
Combined with boom and stick regeneration circuits that reduce load on the main pumps, the Cat hydraulic system contributes significantly to overall fuel savings.
The 323F L is available with three configurations for the front linkage: Reach; Variable Adjustable and Super Long Reach.
