Innovations for the Cat excavators and loaders

In a 5500m² exhibition hall, the exhibit will have lots of exhibitors.

On its booth, Caterpillar wants to favour levelling equipments. Indeed, visitors will see the M317F short radius excavator that allows operators to work better in narrow working spaces. The sale of this machine is set to start at the beginning of 2017.

Besides, the make will display two new track excavators : the 390F and the 336F XE. These latest have been improved to increase their productivity and reduce the operating costs. The 390F XE track excavator is a state of the art one since it has the 2D Grade feature with several options from the Cat Connect.

The 390 F loader can be equipped with a board weighing system. Visitors can also take a look at the 986 K wheel loader that will replace the previous model of the H series. This one is made for levelling and aggregates.

Cat will also take advantage of this event to present the 745 articulated dumper.  With a new safe cab with better visibility, this dumper should be a delight for profesionnals. The construction machine is also equipped with a stability system and a new ECO system.
