  • Cat 2D E-fence for Excavators

    Cat 2D E-fence is an excavator safety feature that keeps the front linkage within a predefined work area to avoid hazards such as traffic. 2D E-fence uses data from position sensors to automatically stop motion when the front linkage reaches the operator defined boundaries.

  • Cat Lift Assist for Excavators

    Cat Lift Assist is an excavator safety feature that quickly calculates the actual load you are lifting and compares it to the rated load the excavator is capable of handling. Visual and auditory alerts tell you if you are within safe working range or need to take action to avoid tipping.

  • Cat GRADE with 2D for Excavators

    Cat Grade with 2D for excavators is an indicate system that helps operators reach grade faster. Select your target depth and slope and watch the Grade with 2D system use on-board processors and sensors to provide real-time guidance on the distance to grade.

  • Cat GRADE with 3D for Excavators

    Cat Grade with 3D for excavators helps you grade to complex designs on multiple machines across your jobsite. Grade with 3D works with GPS and GLONASS systems to know your machine's exact location and ensuring you dig to plan.

  • Cat GRADE with Advanced 2D for Excavators

    Cat Grade with Advanced 2D for excavators gives you the ability to create and work to basic site designs. Cat Grade with Advanced 2D uses on-board processors and sensors to deliver real-time bucket tip elevation guidance.

  • Cat GRADE with Assist for Excavators

    Cat Grade with Assist for excavators automates boom and stick movements for more accurate cuts with less effort. Grade with Assist uses machine position sensors and operator defined depth and slope parameters to activate single-lever digging.

  • Cat Grade with Depth & Slope for Excavators

    Cat Grade with Depth and Slope for excavators is a 2D grade technology that helps you improve grading efficiency. Grade with Depth and Slope uses position sensing hydraulic cylinders and sensors on the front linkage pins to calculate bucket tip position relative to a benchmark.

  • Cat PL161 Attachment Locator

    The Cat PL161 Attachment Locator is the most advanced OEM integrated solution for attachment tracking. The PL161 mounts easily to your attachments or anything else you want to track.

  • Cat Product Link

    Cat® Product Link™ wirelessly connects you to your equipment giving you valuable insight into how your machine or fleet is performing. Information such as location, hours, fuel usage, productivity, idle time, and diagnostic codes are made available through online web applications so that you can make timely, fact-based decisions to maximize efficiency, improve productivity, and lower the cost of owning and operating your fleet. Available with satellite or cellular connectivity.

  • Cat Remote Services

    Remote Services is a suite of cutting-edge technologies that significantly improve jobsite efficiency. Two of its key functions are Remote Troubleshoot and Remote Flash. Remote Troubleshoot allows your dealer to run testing while the machine is operating. Once the problem is identified, a technician can fix it with the correct parts and tools the first time, saving time and money. Remote Flash sends an alert from your Cat dealer, prompting you to update your software. To minimize downtime, the updates will deploy while on the jobsite. Both Remote Troubleshoot and Remote flash decrease maintenance time and keep your machine running with maximum efficiency.
