Machine Service & Support

Caterpillar factory-trained service engineers are available throughout the world to provide our customers with the support necessary to meet their production requirements.


TriPower™ (FS Configurations Only)

Caterpillar uses a unique boom design that employs rotatable triangular rockers to generate superior mechanical leverage and control.


Efficient Drive Systems

Cat hydraulic shovels are equipped with one or two diesel engines or an electric drive option.


Pump Managing System

The pump managing system continuously evaluates actual engine and hydraulic operating values against set values and adjusts pump output for optimal performance.


Superior Oil Cooling System

The cooling system utilizes dedicated pumps to provide cooling capacity as needed, whether the engine is idling or under load, whereas our competitors’ machines only provide cooling when the engine is under load and the excavator is working. Consequently, on Cat hydraulic shovels, the hydraulic oil circulates through the cooling system even when the excavator is waiting for the next truck.


Closed-Loop Swing Circuit

The Cat closed-loop swing circuit results in fast boom lift motions during swing.


Simple & Efficient Hydraulic System

The main hydraulic valve block is located on top of the boom. This design reduces the total number of hoses that are needed and ensures they’re neatly organized for safe operation, easy inspection and fast service.


Sturdy Undercarriage

Cat undercarriages are tough and long-lasting.


Monitoring and Diagnostic System

Enhancing diagnostic capabilities and providing detailed troubleshooting functions, the Board Control System uses sensors throughout the machine to monitor operating data, record faults, and notify the operator audibly and visually.


Electro-Hydraulic Control System

All larger-model Cat hydraulic shovels use an electro-hydraulic control system that electronically relays actuating signals from hand levers. Simplified troubleshooting and advanced diagnostic routines lead to increased uptime.


Machine Accessibility

Systems throughout Cat hydraulic shovels are designed for easy access, enhancing serviceability.


Safe, Comfortable Cab Design

Cat hydraulic excavator cabs have a falling object protection system (FOPS) and meet DIN ISO 3449 standards. They are equipped with comfortable multi-adjustable chairs, ample legroom, excellent visibility, temperature control, sound abatement and ergonomically-designed controls.


Safe Bucket Control

The TriPower roll-back limiter prevents the bucket from being curled back too far and minimizes the potential for material to spill onto the attachment or the cab.


Emergency Shut-Offs

An easily-accessible, standard shut-off switch located in the cab shuts down the electrical system in case of emergencies.
