Mini Excavators

Tweet this page


 

 

Caterpillar has announced the latest models in the new Cat D Series Mini Hydraulic Excavators. The 301.7D, 302.2D and 302.4D are deigned and built for powerful, versatile working in confined spaces. They are an addition to the existing D Series line-up.

With model configurations that closely reflect their operating weights (1.6 to 2.5 metric tons), the new machines feature powerful hydraulics, a spacious operator environment and excellent service access.

Compact in size, the 301.7D, 302.2D and 302.4D can be easily transported on a trailer, or in a pick-up truck.

The 301.7D can be specified with either a fixed or extending undercarriage. The 302.2D is fitted with an extending undercarriage as standard and delivers a greater dig depth and lifting performance. A longer dozer blade is optional on both the 301.7D and 302.2D.

Durable, Functional Design

Enhancing overall capability, the dozer blade simplifies backfilling and clean-up chores. A float function allows the blade to follow ground contours with no operator correction and makes site clean up quick and easy.

Sturdy hoisting brackets on the cab roof enable the easy and rapid relocation of the machine.

Operator Comfort

D-Series models are available with a canopy operator’s station that enables access from both sides of the machine, or with an optional enclosed cab providing premium standard features such as an efficient combined heater, defroster and ventilation system. A retractable front window with a strut assisted linkage easily stows in the roof space.

The lower section of the front glass can be raised and stored along with the upper screen section, increasing ventilation and visibility options and providing a quick storage solution. All models have a sliding right side window for additional ventilation flow. Cab versions come with a radio-ready package.
