Cat® Next generetion wheel excavators - puts you on the road to success


Maxize performance. Boost efficiency. Cut Maintenance

Wherever you take the Cat next gen wheeled excavators – from city streets to dirty ditches – you’ll discover they’re a smart bunch. Inside and out. Combining smart technologies with clever design, these innovative solutions are an operator’s dream and an owner’s delight. Built for excavation work on rough terrain or urban jobsites the attractive looking, all-new wheeled excavators strike the perfect balance between premium feel and practical functionality.
Versatile, highly configurable machines powered by environmentally compliant engines, these street smart – site savvy wheeled excavators give you greater control than ever. If you want to up your game on- or off-road, check out who owns the street these days.

Three new Cat Next generation wheeled excavators –  M314, M316 and M318 – feature multiple design updates that boost machine efficiency and lower long-term operating costs. Advanced hydraulics more efficiently power attachments, including Cat tiltrotators to increase machine flexibility at the jobsite. Today’s wheeled excavators get the job done faster with up to 14% more swing torque, while auxiliary hydraulic options deliver the power and versatility to efficiently use a wide range of Cat attachments. Its dedicated swing pump provides consistent power to the machine for improved multitasking capabilities.

Quickly tackling a range of projects from utility work to general excavating to trenching, these versatile new wheeled excavators efficiently complete tasks, whether in the dirt or on asphalt surfaces. Featuring up to 15 percent more swing torque over the F Series, the M314, M316 and M318 allow operators to quickly complete the task and move onto the next. Its high travel speed reaching 34 km/h (21 mph) allows these new wheeled excavators to quickly travel between jobsites, so those spend more time working.  

The Cat C4.4 engine enables the new M314, M316 and M318 wheeled excavators to efficiently complete tasks in multiple markets with its standard high-ambient temperature capability of 52⁰ C (125⁰ F) and low cold-start capability of -18⁰ C (0⁰ F). The fuel-efficient 110-kW (148-hp) engine meets stringent EU Stage V, U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and Korea Tier 4 Final emission standards. The three models deliver high power, while offering up to 5 percent improved fuel economy. Larger fuel tank on the M314 provides extended work time between fuel refills.  



Simple, comfortable operation

The M314, M316 and M318 come standard with the new, larger Next Gen operator’s cab that offers improved entry/exit and boosts comfort and productivity. A low-profile engine hood design, large front, rear and side windows, and small cab pillars offer improved visibility into the trench and around the machine, enhancing safe operation. Standard rearview and sideview cameras further improve visibility. Advanced viscous mounts reduce cab vibrations which cuts down on operator fatigue, while easy-to-reach controls help increase operating comfort.

Customers have the choice of either deluxe or premium cab designs. The deluxe cab features a seat that is heated and air-adjustable, while the premium seat is heated and cooled, plus it adjusts automatically. Ample storage beneath and behind the seat, in overhead compartments and consoles give operators plenty to room to stow gear. 

The excavators are started using the in-cab push-button or remotely via a Bluetooth® key fob or through the unique operator I.D. function. Machine controls are easy to use and navigate with the new large, 240-mm (10-in) touchscreen monitor or with the jog-dial control. Using the unique I.D., operators can program power mode and joystick configuration to their preferences, and the excavator remembers each operator’s settings on start-up.  Auto axle lock detects when the service brake must be locked or unlocked and releases it automatically when the travel pedal is pressed, reducing the number of actions required by the operator.

Lower maintenance costs

A host of Next Gen design upgrades allow the new wheeled excavators to provide up to 10% savings in maintenance compared to the previous models. All fuel filters have a synchronized, 1,000-hour change interval, doubling the filter life. The new hydraulic oil filter delivers improved filtration and a 50 percent longer change interval at 3,000 operating hours for reduced maintenance. Two-level fuel filtration helps to better protect diesel fuel purity to improve machine uptime reliability. The operator tracks filter life and maintenance intervals on the in-cab touchscreen monitor, aiding in machine maintenance planning.

A ground-level shut-off switch stops all fuel to the engine and shuts down the machine, enhancing servicing safety. All daily maintenance checkpoints are made from ground level, improving convenience and safety for service technicians. Further simplifying maintenance, Cat S∙O∙SSM ports are also accessed from ground level for sample fluid extraction, simplifying maintenance. Anti-skid punch plate stairs provide access to the upper-level service platform and to help prevent slipping.

Technology boosts efficiency

The new Cat M314, M316 and M318 wheeled excavators build on the standard Product Link™ technology that provides managers critical machine operating data such as location, hours, fuel usage, idle time diagnostics codes and other machine data to boost fleet management efficiency. Reported excavator data is conveniently accessed on demand wherever an internet connection is available through VisionLink® or the Cat App.

New remote diagnostics tools available for the M314, M316 and M318 help save service trips to the jobsite to increase machine servicing efficiency. With new Remote Troubleshoot, dealer technicians remotely run diagcs testing without impacting machine productivity to detect potential issues by analyzing real-time machine data captured by Product Link. Remote Flash works around the company’s production schedule and conveniently assures these new excavators are operating with the most current version of on-board software, so they deliver high performance, maximum efficiency and minimum downtime.
