CAT® 336: STANDARD TECHNOLOGY PROTECTS PEOPLE AND PROFIT
There’s a lot to like about the standard technology package on the new Cat® 336. Case in point: the e-fence feature. It provides a quick, easy way for operators to set electronic boundaries on all sides of a machine. If any part of the excavator breaches those boundaries, motion stops. So you’ll reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, even when you’re working around traffic, in tight quarters, near overhead powerlines, or close to ground-level or below-ground obstacles.
The other standard technologies deliver big savings, too
Cat Grade with 2D saves time and improves grading accuracy. It’s a simple guidance system that displays bucket depth, slope and horizontal distance to grade on a touchscreen monitor in the cab. Operators say it makes grading easier.
Cat Grade with Assist increases grading efficiency up to 45% over traditional methods. It automates boom, stick and bucket movements, so operators can do more work in less time with less fuel, materials and rework.
Cat Payload tracks load weight while the machine is working and displays that information in the cab. It’s an easy way to help operators right-size their loads. No more underloading (which adds time and cost) or overloading (which jeopardizes safety and component life).
Cat Link hardware and software lets you monitor and manage equipment remotely. With quality data and advanced analytics, you can make well-informed decisions about things like utilization, training, maintenance and repairs–maximizing uptime and lowering costs.
More new features set the 336 apart
The standard technology package is just one reason to consider the 336. Others include:
- The new excavator is up to 15% more fuel efficient than its predecessor. A new Smart Mode setting, an on-demand fan for the cooling system and an upgraded hydraulic system let you save fuel while you work hard.
- A new easy-maintenance design with extended, synchronized intervals and conveniently located checkpoints can reduce maintenance costs by as much as 15%.
- The standard cab is loaded with comfort features like an ergonomic seat, new mounts that cut vibration in half, a big touchscreen monitor, huge windows, automatic climate control and more. Deluxe and Premium cab packages are also available.
The 336 is ideal for applications that require big horsepower, extra digging force and plenty of lift capacity, yet it’s highly maneuverable and easy to move from site to site. Talk to your Cat dealer about this Next Generation Excavator or get more information here.
