New Cat 336F L Excavator Delivers Superior Productivity and Fuel Efficiency with Reduced Emissions

For Release in Australia & New Zealand: April 2016 
Release Number: 223PR16

The new Cat® 336F L excavator is built to meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage IV emissions standards, and it comes equipped with several features to enhance fuel efficiency. Electric boom and stick regeneration valves capture and recycle energy, and an engine idle shutdown setting turns the engine off after a specified amount of idle time. Additionally, the operator can reduce engine speed to idle with the touch of a button to help save fuel, plus an economy power mode helps the operator manage and conserve fuel.

To maintain high productivity and fuel efficiency, the C9.3 ACERT™ engine is equipped with an exhaust aftertreatment regeneration system that ensures the machine works as normal with no operator intervention needed. This means the operator can stay focused on work with no costly interruption to the job process. The engine also runs efficiently on biodiesel blends up to B20.

Cat Connect makes smart use of technology and services to help improve jobsite efficiency. LINK technologies such as Product Link™ assist fleet owners in managing equipment by tracking information—fuel usage, productivity, idle time, and diagnostic codes—which is then shared through the VisionLink® interface. Optional GRADE technologies, such as Cat Grade Control Depth and Slope, help operators work more productively and accurately with less rework. The factory-integrated system displays real-time positioning and cut-and-fill data on the standard cab monitor. This information helps operators get digging and slope work done right the first time to save money on fuel and materials and to minimize the need for a grade checker. The system can easily be upgraded to 3D capability through the Cat dealer by adding proven Cat AccuGrade™ GPS or Universal Total Station (UTS) systems. 

The roll-over-protective-structure (ROPS) cab is spacious and quiet with large glass areas for all-around visibility. It features positive air filtration, which pressurizes the cab slightly to keep out dust, height-adjustable joystick consoles, a large color monitor, radio with MP3 auxiliary audio port, and available air suspension, heated and cooled seat options to help make operators comfortable and productive. For enhanced safety, the 336F comes with time-delay working lights and a rearview camera.

To simplify routine maintenance, the 336F is designed with most service points located at ground level. It also has a side-by-side cooling package that makes maintenance quick and easy.
