A WINNING COMBINATION FOR TIGHT SPACES—THE CAT® 325F L COMPACT RADIUS EXCAVATOR

Tight quarters, heavy material, fuel prices—these challenges won’t slow you down if you’re running the Cat® 325F L compact radius excavator. The Cat 325F L offers increased lift capacity (up to 7% over-the-front and up to 9% over-the-side) and a 12% improvement in fuel consumption over its 321D L CR predecessor.

Here are some of the features that put this excavator at the top of its class:

Less Fuel, More Power. While the 325F L consumes less fuel than the Tier 3/Stage IIIA model (321D L CR), the engine actually delivers nearly 4% more new horsepower. How’s that possible? Simple. Advanced engine technology and system control. Isochronous control, for example, permits the engine to run at a constant lower speed but at an optimum point in the power curve for maximum efficiency. Plus, the Cat 325F has automatic engine speed control, auto idle shutdown and three power modes—all of which contribute to high efficiency.

Biodiesel Not a Problem. The C4.4 ACERT engine can run on up to B20 biodiesel that meets ASTM 6751 standards—all to give you more potential fuel-saving flexibility.

A Forceful, Responsive Hydraulic Design. What’s really new with the 325F L is the hydraulic valve’s electronic control. Integrated with the electronic engine, the hydraulic power with electronic control is smoother and more responsive than traditional hydraulic control. It also contributes to less energy consumption and less wear and tear, and both of those translate into lower owning and operating costs.

Tool Control for Enhanced Versatility. Tool control is a distinct Cat excavator advantage that adds incredible convenience and enhanced performance to your everyday work. The electronic system stores flows and pressures for up to 20 work tools right in the cab monitor, eliminating the need to calibrate tools every time you make a change out front. It works with both one- and two-way-flow tools, and it can be outfitted with a third pump and medium pressure circuit so you can use tools like shears, grapples and tilt buckets.

Versatility. Productivity. Efficiency. Put the Cat 325F L combination to work on your next job.
