Cat Grade Control Depth and Slope Now Available on 323E Hydraulic Excavator

Integrated Cat® Grade Control Makes 323E L Excavators Even More Productive

Cat® Grade Control Depth and Slope is now standard on Cat 323E L (N) hydraulic excavators.

This 2D system delivers positioning and cut-and-fill information on the machine's standard monitor. Real-time data helps operators achieve depth and slope efficiently, accurately and without guesswork—resulting in productivity increases of up to 35%.

Factory integrated into the Cat 323E L, all sensors and components are built in, reducing the risk of theft or damage. Joystick buttons allow operators to adjust grade settings without removing their hands from the controls. Height and depth limit alerts warn the operator when digging near buried utilities or in areas with low ceilings.

For advanced capabilities, you can easily upgrade to 3D control with the Cat AccuGrade™ system. The 323E L comes pre-wired and features rear mast mounts for fast installation.
