Overview

With standard Cat Payload and 2D Grade, the Cat ® 340 LRE will help you hit your targets all day long—even up to distances nearly 60 feet (18.28 meters) away. When you add in an all-new cab, longer maintenance intervals that lower your maintenance costs up to 15 percent, and a power system that improves fuel efficiency up to 15 percent, you won’t find a better excavator for tough, hard-to-reach work.
