  • The Cat C7.1 engine burns up to 9% less fuel than the 324D L.
  • Constant engine speed control adjusts fuel pressure and hydraulic flow to maintain optimal engine speed regardless of load, maximizing productivity and reducing fuel usage and noise.
  • An electric fuel priming pump speeds up starts and fuel system maintenance.
  • The variable-speed fan reduces noise and saves energy.
  • The long undercarriage (L) maximizes stability and lift capacity.


  • Cabs are equipped with easy-to-operate controls.
  • Multiple seat and joystick adjustment options enhance comfort.
  • Optimized low-effort joystick controls reduce operator fatigue.
  • The LCD monitor is easy to navigate and programmable in 42 languages.


  • The strong, durable car body is designed to work in the toughest operating conditions.
  • Electrical wires are colored, numbered, and protected with thick braiding for ease of identification and long life.
  • Greased track link between pins and bushings increases undercarriage life and reduces noise.
  • A redesigned fuel injection system enhances reliability.
  • Segmented track guiding guards (two pieces) protect undercarriage for long life.


  • Integrated Cat technology solutions increase production and minimize operating costs.
  • Product Link™ reports key information from the machine to any location.


  • The hydraulic activation lever safely locks out all hydraulic functions.
  • Anti-skid plating and countersunk bolts reduce slipping in severe conditions and during routine checks.
  • A full-length firewall separates the pump compartment from the engine.
  • The ground-level fuel cut off switch shuts down the engine in an emergency.
  • A rearview camera greatly enhances visibility behind the machine, helping the operator work more safely and productively.


  • Demolition work is quick and easy with a Cat hammer, thumb, shear, or multiprocessor.
  • Utility and finishing work are fast and flawless with a Cat tilt bucket and compactor.
  • A coupler lets you swap between attachments in seconds without leaving the cab.
