Cat 320 GC
This product is equipped with various technologies that can provide the best benefits in its class, more powerful, more agile, and fuel efficient. This product is optimal for use in light applications, construction, irrigation, and land clearing.
The Cat 320 GC is more powerful with the largest standard bucket capacity in its class, which is 1m3, making it has a stronger and more agile digging power, and results in faster cycle times. The technology embedded in the Cat 320 GC is also designed to have lower maintenance costs, which is down to 15% of its predecessor because of the longer maintenance intervals, and also the need for fewer parts and oil. Furthermore, this product is supported by various features such as SMART Mode technology that can make units operate on lower engine revolutions per minute (RPM), electro hydraulic technology and larger hydraulic pumps, and cooling fans that operated electronically.
Cat 320 GC's fuel consumption average drops by 20% from its predecessor, to 13 l/h. If in the first year the customer finds the average fuel consumption exceeds that number, the difference can be claimed to Trakindo and will be replaced in the form of spare parts voucher (as long as the usage is according to the provisions and monitored by the Product Link™ system).
This latest generation of the 320 series is equipped with future technology that can provide the best performance in its class, more productive, more accurate, yet saving operational costs. This product is optimally used on a longtime duration, and heavy duty utilization continuously.
The leading technology in Cat 320 invites customers to be able to increase work efficiency and accuracy up to 45%. The Cat Grade 2D helps operators do grading work, as well as cut and fill, faster and more precisely. The Cat Grade with Assist helps the movement of boom, stick & bucket which are automatically produce accuracy with minimum work, while the operator only determines depth and monitors slope. Cat Payload ensures the precise load count by providing accurate direct weighing information during the work process, thus helping to avoid overloading. The Cat 320 provides a fuel-efficient guarantee in the first year with an average consumption of 16 liters/hour.
Having the largest standard bucket capacity in the industry, which is 1.19 m3, the Cat 320 is also equipped with leading security features; E-fence will automatically stop the movement of excavators based on predetermined limits, this will also protect the operator from fatigue by reducing over-swinging and over-digging, as well as equipped with a rear camera that becomes standard feature to provide more visibility, not to mention an easier and safer daily maintenance process because it can be accessed at ground level (100% ground level daily maintenance).
