MORE OF THIS, LESS OF THAT: MEET THE NEW 323

Looking for an excavator that gives you more of what you want and less of what you don’t? Look no further than the new Cat® 323. This next generation excavator delivers more productivity, power and uptime while costing you less in rework, fuel and maintenance. Here’s how:

More production, less time
Equipped with the industry’s highest level of standard technology, the new 323 gives you a big productivity and efficiency edge. How? By enabling operators of all experience levels to dig, load and grade with more speed and confidence. Using Cat Grade with 2D, they can reach grade faster — no grade checkers needed. And with Cat Grade with Assist’s automated boom, stick and bucket movements, they can make more accurate cuts with less effort. (Upgrade to Cat Grade with Advanced 2D or Cat Grade with 3D for even more benefits.) Cat Payload also comes standard, offering on-the-go weighing to prevent over- and under-loading. All this technology adds up to an efficiency advantage of as much as 45% compared to traditional methods. That’s like gaining back 4.5 weeks each year!

More power, less fuel
The new 323 delivers all the power and speed you need for high-production performance, but burns less fuel doing it. That’s due to a precise combination of lower engine speed and a large hydraulic pump that results in maximum fuel efficiency. The excavator’s Smart Mode — one of three power mode settings — is another fuel-saver. It automatically adjusts engine and hydraulic power, so you use the right amount of fuel for the task at hand: more for digging, less for swinging. The result? You could see a drop in fuel consumption with the new 323 of up to 20% compared to the 323F.

More work, less service
Want a machine that spends more time on the job and less time in the shop? The new 323 cuts maintenance time and costs in a big way. Thanks to updates like these, you could save up to 20% over 12,000 hours of operation:
