Next Generation Cat® Mini Excavators

To develop the Next Generation of Cat® Mini Excavators, we focused on the one most important component - you. You are the one who digs the ditches, lays utilities, dredges ponds and shapes the land. So when you told us what you needed in a mini excavator, we listened. Real insights from real customers led to real features. That’s how our design was inspired by you.

It includes multiple industry-first features:

  • Stick steer travel control
  • Cruise control
  • Full color LCD monitor with Bluetooth
  • High flow hydraulics on 309 model
  • First 1-2 ton excavators with sealed and pressurized cab to offer air conditioning option
