Caterpillar has now announced that the 300.9D, 301.4C and the 302.7 CR with operating weights of 935 kg, 1515 kg and 2670 kg are now available.

Caterpillar Expands Its Mini Excavator Range

Originally shown at Samoter 2011 as prototypes, Caterpillar has now announced that the 300.9D, 301.4C and the 302.7 CR with operating weights of 935 kg, 1515 kg and 2670 kg are now available. All three models are manufactured under the agreement with Wacker-Neuson.

The 300.9D, at just 935 kg, is the smallest machine in the Cat range. With a width of just 730 mm, it is capable of driving through a standard doorway, providing easy access to the most confined job sites.

The 300.9D, at just 935 kg, is the smallest machine in the Cat range. With a width of just 730 mm, it is capable of driving through a standard doorway, providing easy access to the most confined job sites.      A water-cooled three-cylinder Yanmar 31NV70 diesel engine produces 13.7 kW along with a twin gear pump hydraulic system delivers a stick breakout force of 4.5 kN and a maximum bucket breakout force of 8.9 kN. The extending undercarriage and fold-out dozer blade increase stability enabling a digging depth of 1,731 mm and a maximum excavation radius of 3,074 mm.

Caterpillar’s work tool division will be introducing a new H25 compact breaker specifically to work with this smaller machine. Auxiliary hydraulic lines with quick disconnect fittings are supplied as standard.

One for the rental sector

With an operating weight of 1,325-1,515 kg, depending on specification, the Cat 301.4C fits into the line-up below the current 301.8C, extending choice in the popular 1.5 ton market. The machine is available with a choice of cab or FOPS/TOPS canopy, and with standard or extending width undercarriage.

Power comes from a 17.9 W Yanmar 3TNV76 engine and the machine boasts a maximum bucket breakout force 16.0 kN and a stick force of 7 kN. Maximum digging depth of 2,240 mm and reach at ground level is 3,640 mm.

Standard equipment includes extendable undercarriage, single and two-way auxiliary hydraulic lines, a dozer blade, a suspension seat and a hydraulic oil cooler.

The latest mini excavators from Caterpillar are easy to transport and also provide a reasonable level of comfort for machines of this size.Addition to the compact radius Line

Weighing 2,577 kg with a canopy or 2,670 kg with full cab, the 302.7D CR is the lightest Cat compact radius model, making it easy to transport for a rental company or contractor. Powered by the same 17.9 kW engine as the 301.4C, the machine has a load sensing hydraulic system, providing a maximum bucket force of 22.5 kN and a maximum stick force of 21.76 kN.

The latest mini excavators from Caterpillar are easy to transport and also provide a reasonable level of comfort for machines of this size.

Two-way auxiliary lines are standard, equipped with quick disconnects for rapid work tool changeover. A joystick-mounted proportional auxiliary control allows for fine control of a range of powered attachments. The dozer blade offers added stability when digging, and a float function on the dozer control allows operators to grade and push with confidence.
