NEW GENERATION MINI EXCAVATORS - WHAT YOU HAVE ASKED TO!
We are very happy to introduce New Generation Cat® mini excavator first 1-2 tones models. These fast and maneuverable machines with smart features and advanced technologies that were inherited from larger Cat track-type excavators are already changing the jobsite rules.
These machines were designed with you in mind. The high-performance machines are not only affordable but they boast improved servicing, comfort and control.
The new model range allows customers expanded choices for matching machine capabilities and machine features to the applications: 301.5 (1.5-ton class, standard tail swing, with canopy); 301.6 (1.5-ton class, standard tail swing, with cab); 301.7 CR (1.7-ton class, compact radius, with canopy); 301.8 (1.8-ton class, standard tail swing, with either canopy or cab); 302 CR (2.0-ton class, compact radius, with either canopy or cab).The new model range allows customers expanded choices for matching machine capabilities and machine features to the applications: 301.5 (1.5-ton class, standard tail swing, with canopy); 301.6 (1.5-ton class, standard tail swing, with cab); 301.7 CR (1.7-ton class, compact radius, with canopy); 301.8 (1.8-ton class, standard tail swing, with either canopy or cab); 302 CR (2.0-ton class, compact radius, with either canopy or cab).
The new model line-up includes the 307.5,a standard tail swing model with a fixed boom; 308 CR, a compact radius model with a swing boom; 308 CR VAB, featuring a variable angle (two-piece) swing boom; 309 CR, a new model in the mini range featuring a compact radius, swing boom, and “high flow” auxiliary hydraulics; 309 CR VAB, which expands the 309 CR's capability with a variable angle boom; and 310, also new to the range, featuring a fixed boom, standard tail swing, and twin blade cylinders for handling heavy duty dozing chores.
With enhanced lift strength, swing options, travel power and functions, these models are hugely versatile. Extended service intervals provide a 10% saving
compared to previous models.
The 7-10 tonne models come with:
• High Flow* for hydraulic power you can customise
• Stick steer for comfortable control
• LCD monitor with Bluetooth radio
• Cruise control for hands-free travel.
Putting the control in your hands, joystick and cruise control make manoeuvring, positioning and travelling in your excavator easier and faster. You can start the machine with the push of a button thanks to a Bluetooth‑enabled key.
Stick steer - power in your hands
Stick steer makes long days and repetitive tasks in the cab so much more comfortable. For the first time, you can choose to control the machine using just the stick steer. Simply press a button to take control away from the pedals and levers. You can control the machine just like a skid steer loader using the left-hand joystick. With the right-hand joystick you can control the dozer blade, or the boom and stick function.

Cruise Control - Travel in comfort
Travel in comfort when you choose cruise control mode. You can set the cruise control by pressing a trigger underneath the joystick – perfect for moving the machine across a large open site. You no longer have to put up with backache or sore wrists at the end of the day from hunching over levers.
Aircon - Stay cool
Work in luxury through the long, hot days with cool, clean air con. You can control the air con and the heating through the LCD monitor to make sure your cab stays at a temperature to suit you. The sealed, pressurised cab design keeps dust out and cool air in.
LCD Monitors - Total control
Receive calls, listen to music and track your performance in one place. Use the monitor to check your key stats, including performance and fuel efficiency. You can also receive calls through the monitor while you work, and adjust the temperature in the cab. Bluetooth means you can turn up the radio or stream your own playlists.
Multifunctional and versatile, the new range of mini excavators are best in their class for productivity and performance. You can lift and place objects safely and accurately with two-point machine lifting plus adjustable hydraulics and speed settings. A larger engine with boosted horsepower delivers up to 20% more performance, without compromising your fuel efficiency.
Key factors affecting productivity:
• Personalized control unit settings: Your machine will be adapted to your working style, aggressiveness, speed
• High flow* function
• Shorter duty cycle
• Increased digging depth
• Track extension function to increase machine stability (1-2 tons models)
*High flow allows best in class work tool performance with a second dedicated auxiliary pump for hydromechanical work tools. The feature is ideal for land management and mulching applications.
Servicing and repair are easy thanks to improved access, so your servicing time is reduced. Longer service intervals mean less downtime and more productive hours on site. Let’s do the work!
Main features of the machine that simplify service and reduce operating costs:
• Lifting cab (1-2 ton models)
• Service is much faster
• Easy to replace machine guards
• Longer service intervals
• For convenience, you will see the upcoming service information on the LCD screen
All this means up to 15% lower operating costs!
