  • Cat COMMAND for Excavating

    Cat Command is an excavator safety feature that allows you to operate at a distance up to 400 meters (437 yards) away via remote control. The Command remote controller communicates with the excavator's dedicated remote radio to perform functions you require and can be programmed for personal operating preferences.

  • Cat 2D E-fence for Excavators

    Cat 2D E-fence is an excavator safety feature that keeps the front linkage within a predefined work area to avoid hazards such as traffic. 2D E-fence uses data from position sensors to automatically stop motion when the front linkage reaches the operator defined boundaries.

  • Cat Lift Assist for Excavators

    Cat Lift Assist is an excavator safety feature that quickly calculates the actual load you are lifting and compares it to the rated load the excavator is capable of handling. Visual and auditory alerts tell you if you are within safe working range or need to take action to avoid tipping.

  • Cat GRADE with 2D for Excavators

    Cat Grade with 2D for excavators is an indicate system that helps operators reach grade faster. Select your target depth and slope and watch the Grade with 2D system use on-board processors and sensors to provide real-time guidance on the distance to grade.

  • Cat GRADE with 3D for Excavators

    Cat Grade with 3D for excavators helps you grade to complex designs on multiple machines across your jobsite. Grade with 3D works with GPS and GLONASS systems to know your machine's exact location and ensuring you dig to plan.

  • Cat GRADE with Advanced 2D for Excavators

    Cat Grade with Advanced 2D for excavators gives you the ability to create and work to basic site designs. Cat Grade with Advanced 2D uses on-board processors and sensors to deliver real-time bucket tip elevation guidance.

  • Cat GRADE with Assist for Excavators

    Cat Grade with Assist for excavators automates boom and stick movements for more accurate cuts with less effort. Grade with Assist uses machine position sensors and operator defined depth and slope parameters to activate single-lever digging.

  • Cat Product Link

    Cat® Product Link™ wirelessly connects you to your equipment giving you valuable insight into how your machine or fleet is performing. Information such as location, hours, fuel usage, productivity, idle time, and diagnostic codes are made available through online web applications so that you can make timely, fact-based decisions to maximize efficiency, improve productivity, and lower the cost of owning and operating your fleet. Available with satellite or cellular connectivity.

  • Cat Remote Services

    Remote Services is a suite of cutting-edge technologies that significantly improve jobsite efficiency. Two of its key functions are Remote Troubleshoot and Remote Flash. Remote Troubleshoot allows your dealer to run testing while the machine is operating. Once the problem is identified, a technician can fix it with the correct parts and tools the first time, saving time and money. Remote Flash sends an alert from your Cat dealer, prompting you to update your software. To minimize downtime, the updates will deploy while on the jobsite. Both Remote Troubleshoot and Remote flash decrease maintenance time and keep your machine running with maximum efficiency.
