Performance

  • Cat C4.4 ACERT™ engine meets EU Stage IV emission standards. Emissions technology is transparent – no action required from the operator and no stopping for regeneration.
  • Dedicated swing pump, allowing faster, smoother combined movements.
  • Built-in fuel savers, eliminating waste with features like Auto Engine Speed Control, Engine Idle Shutdown and efficient Eco Mode.
  • “On-Demand” Strategies, to consume just the right amount of fuel.
  • Similar working ranges, stability and lift capacities as the M314F.
  • Highly mobile, the M315F can travel up to 30 km/h (19 mph).

Versatility

  • Compact design allows an operator to swing with confidence in tight quarters.
  • Flexible configurations to meet all your needs with various booms/sticks, tires and undercarriages.
  • “Plug and Play” design, with complete integration of the whole portfolio of Cat attachments. – Auxiliary hydraulics, including high pressure, and quick coupler lines/circuits. – Readiness for all couplers, either Pin Grabber, Dedicated or hydraulic Auto Connect coupler. – The monitor can allow ten hydraulic pump flow and pressure settings at the same time. – Tiltrotator option including all required changes to accommodate the Cat Tiltrotator.
  • Joystick buttons/sliders can be set up per tool as desired by the operator.

Ease of Operation

  • A complete package of smart technologies with features like Cruise Control or automatic brake and axle lock. Optional boosters like Ride Control, SmartBoom™, joystick steering are available.
  • Everything can be adjusted in the cab from the steering column height to the electrically adjustable mirrors.
  • Ergonomic cab with controls kept to a minimum and conveniently located.
  • Split-screen monitor to allow quick view of both cameras on the same display.

Safety

  • Integrated devices to help enforce safe behavior, like seat belt indicator, or the speed limit setting when roading in reverse with the upper frame rotated.
  • Visibility: large glass areas, rear/side cameras. LED lamps for all working lights and cameras.
  • For added protection, the optional impact resistant windshield meets the EN356 P5A standard.
  • Integrated pin code adds anti-theft security to your equipment.

Maintenance

  • Ground level access to all routine maintenance (like fuel and engine oil filters).
  • Easy access: clean, simple design. Radiators are all gathered together.
  • Reduced maintenance: automatic features (like lubrication system) along with long greasing intervals. Fit for life Diesel Particulate Filter.

Cat Connect Technology

  • Product Link™ connects owners to their equipment, providing access to machine data such as location, hours, fuel consumption, idle time, events, and diagnostic codes.
