Go Ahead. Be Demanding.

Reaching Further. All Day. Every Day.

Improved Cycle Times

The versatile E Series excavators are built for reliable, efficient operation to keep your jobsite moving. The entire line is loaded with features that help ensure you reach higher levels of production—and profitability.

  • Powerful digging force makes every bucket load count
  • Faster cycle times mean your trucks get loaded quicker
  • Enhanced hydraulics make moving heavy materials easy
  • Flexible power modes improve productivity and reduce fuel consumption
  • Optional Cat Grade Control Depth and Slope system speeds up the job process with real-time bucket tip position information

Greater Fuel Efficiency

The emissions-compliant Cat engines with ACERT™ Technology provide more power and greater fuel efficiency than previous models. Additional new fuel savings features to lower your operating costs include:

  • Unique boom regeneration valve to reduce pressure loss and capture and recycle energy
  • Innovative, one-touch button in the cab to reduce engine idle speed
  • Isochronous speed control to maintain a constant engine speed—regardless of load

Unstoppable Production

To maintain high productivity, E Series machines feature an automatic engine exhaust aftertreatment system, so there's no need for your operators to stop working and manually regenerate the machine. That means less downtime, so you can move more material and reach your production goals. Additional benefits include:

  • Regeneration process transparent to the operator
  • Longer diesel particulate filter service life
  • Manual override mode to allow moving the machine from heat-restricted areas before initiating regeneration

Greater Durability

E Series hydraulic excavators are built with legendary Cat durability to provide the high level of value in any application. The entire E Series family boasts new and enhanced performance features for rugged reliability.

  • Reinforced upper and lower frame to increase lift capacity and enhance component durability
  • Undercarriage enhancements like heavy-duty track rollers, precision-forged carrier rollers and enhanced track shoe bolts to improve durability and reduce downtime risk
  • New segmented guiding guards to maintain track alignment
  • Redesigned final drive housing to prevent mud packing and debris buildup around seals
  • Counterweights bolted directly to the main frame for strong rigidity

Cab Comfort and Safety

E Series machines are loaded with features that reduce operator fatigue, enhance worksite safety and increase productivity.

  • New, more comfortable seat with heating and cooling options
  • Adjustable joystick consoles to meet the operator's desired preference
  • New, easy-to-use LCD monitor that's 40 percent larger for greater visibility
  • More storage space for cell phones, coffee cups and lunch boxes
  • Enhanced sound insulation to reduce cab noise

Faster Servicing

The E Series uses an efficient service layout that simplifies maintenance for faster, easier servicing to reduce downtime—and your operating costs. The new layout features:

  • Larger doors with auto-locking hinges
  • Quick taps for daily checks of oils and coolants
  • Easy-to-reach filters for regular maintenance
  • Environmentally friendly engine and hydraulic oil drain options

More Options

You can equip E Series machines with safety and productivity options like:

  • Tool control system to manage multiple work tools automatically from the monitor
  • High Intensity Discharge (HID) lights for greater nighttime visibility
  • Cat AccuGrade™ positioning technologies with GPS to reduce cycle times
  • Falling Objects Guarding System (FOGS) for enhanced protection
