Overview

Go the Distance

The Cat® 340 LRE helps you hit your targets all day long. With standard Cat® Payload and 2D Grade, you can reach up to distances nearly 60 feet (18.28 meters) away. Add in an ergonomic cab, longer maintenance intervals that lower your maintenance costs by up to 15%, and a power system that improves fuel efficiency by up to 15%, and you won’t find a better excavator for cleaning ditches, canals, and waterways or doing heavier-duty work like dredging and long-distance excavation.

Benefits

Nearly 35% More Reach

Cat Long Reach Excavation Excavators reach nearly 35% farther than those with the standard reach configuration, with approximately 66% of the digging force.

Designed to Dig

Reinforcements in the front linkage and frame allow digging power at a distance without sacrificing durability. A heavier counterweight than equivalent standard reach excavators provides greater stability. Get added versatility with optional tool control for select hydro-mechanical tools

Stable Foundation

The heavy-duty, high, wide undercarriage provides a stable, rugged platform for long-reach digging and loading applications with high ground clearance.

Next Gen Features

Take advantage of Cat Next Generation Excavator features including improved operator comfort, reduced maintenance costs, and better fuel economy. Long reach excavation excavators are compatible with Next Generation Excavator technologies.
