Overview

A wide range of work tools gives Cat Mini Hydraulic Excavators versatility in applications such as building construction, landscaping and demolition. Mini Excavators feature excellent stability for excavating and lifting as well as two speed travel for reduced travel time between job locations on site.

Overall Machine Design

Cat Mini Hydraulic Excavators have a number of features that benefit both owner and operator. Mini Excavators feature strong, robust styling. Exterior panels are curved and have rounded edges for a modern appearance. Cat Mini Excavators are designed for a small height and width, making them among the most compact 2.5 ton mini hydraulic excavators in the industry. This feature enables Cat machines to enter gaps and doorways easier than other machines. All Mini Excavator components are pre-painted (except plated components) using an electrostatic dip process similar to that used in the automotive industry, insuring even coverage and longer lasting protection and appearance.

Undercarriage

Lower frames are expandable H-shaped, fabricated structures designed for high durability. Variable width enhances machine versatility and stability. The main structure of the track roller frames consist of steel plates bent into inverse U-shapes to prevent accumulation of soil and allow for easy cleaning of the undercarriage.

Work Tools

Caterpillar buckets and hydraulic powered tools extend the versatility of Cat Mini Hydraulic Excavators. Built for performance and durability, the full range of mini hydraulic excavator work tools deliver high productivity, long service life and excellent value.

Dozer Blade

Dozer blades can be used to level a worksite before digging, doze and backfill trenches and trap objects between the bucket and blade for easy clean-up. If the machine is being used with the undercarriage fully extended, extensions can be added on to either side of the blade to match the undercarriage width.

Engine

Cat Mini Hydraulic Excavator diesel engines deliver high performance, incorporating many heavy-duty features that have helped make Cat diesel engines the industry standard. They are designed for rugged, reliable operation while providing peak performance in a wide range of operating conditions.

Hydraulic System

The Cat Mini Hydraulic Excavators feature hydraulic systems with a hydraulic pilot control design, balancing power and speed to give smooth control and optimum digging performance.

Front Linkage

Front linkage geometry provides excellent digging depth, reach and dump height for a wide working range and excellent excavation performance. These dimensions are increased with the optional long stick. Front linkages are fabricated box-sections, built for performance and long life.

Operator Station

Cat Mini Hydraulic Excavator operator stations provide maximum operator comfort and ease of control. Ergonomic design leads to less operator fatigue and better performance.

Boom Swing Post

The boom swing post is offset to the right of center of the operator’s seat to enhance visibility of work tools. For this reason, the back of the boom will never entirely cover the operator’s viewing range.

Optional Equipment

Optional equipment is available to increase versatility and productivity on the job site. Your Cat dealer can help you decide what options are best for you.

Service Language

The instructions and service decals are offered in a variety of languages to suit the customer’s requirements.
