Fuel efficiency and serviceability make the 345 GC stand out. Add in a quiet and comfortable ROPS cab, easy-to-use controls, and multiple Cat attachment options and you have one tough excavator capable of taking on a variety of tasks.
The air conditioning system on this machine contains the fluorinated greenhouse gas refrigerant R134a (Global Warming Potential = 1430). The system contains 1.0 kg of refrigerant which has a CO2 equivalent of 1430 metric tonnes.The air conditioning system on this machine contains the fluorinated greenhouse gas refrigerant R134a (Global Warming Potential = 1430).

Get up to 25 percent more fuel efficiency than the 349D2 Tier 3 excavator in similar applications.
The C9.3B engine meets Brazil MAR-1 and China Nonroad Stage III emission standards, equivalent to U.S. EPA Tier 3 and EU Stage IIIA.
Match the excavator to the job with two power modes. Smart mode automatically matches engine and hydraulic power to digging conditions, providing max power when needed and reducing power when it isn’t to help save fuel.
The advanced hydraulic system provides the optimum balance of power and efficiency while giving you the control you need for precise digging requirements.
Valve priority puts hydraulic pressure and flow where you command it to go for fast light- to medium-load cycle times.
Self-sharpening Advansys bucket tips increase production and lower costs with longer tip life.
Add auxiliary hydraulics to do more work with various Cat attachments.
Product Link™ comes standard so you can remotely monitor machine health, location, hours, and fuel consumption on demand through the VisionLink® online interface.
Expect up to 30 percent less maintenance cost than the 349D2 Tier 3 excavator due to extended and synchronized service intervals and smaller fluid quantities. (Savings calculated over 12,000 machine hours.)
Check hydraulic system oil and easily drain fuel system water from ground level.
Track your excavator’s filter life and maintenance intervals via the in-cab monitor.
Change all fuel filters at a synchronized 1,000 hours. Oil and fuel filters are grouped and located on right-hand side of machine for easy maintenance.
The new air intake filter with pre-cleaner has double the dirt holding capacity of the previous air intake filter.
The new hydraulic oil filter provides improved filtration performance, anti-drain valves to keep oil clean when the filter is replaced, and longer life with a 3,000 hour replacement interval – 50 percent longer than previous filter designs.
S·O·S ports are on ground level, simplifying maintenance and allowing for quick, easy extraction of fluid samples for analysis.
