Overview

Since its introduction in the 1990s, the 300 Series family of excavators has become the industry standard in general, quarry, and heavy construction applications. The all-new E Series and the 316E L will continue that trend-setting standard. The 316E L meets U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4 Interim emission standards, European Union Stage IIIB emission standards, and Japan MLIT Step 4 emission standards. It is also built with several new fuel-saving and comfort-enabling features and benefits that will delight owners and operators. If you are looking for more productivity and comfort less fuel consumption and emissions, and easier and more sensible serviceability, you will find it in the all-new 316E L and the E Series family of excavators.
