February 28, 2017

  • Caterpillar to showcase Cat®320D2 and Cat 313D2 Hydraulic Excavators, Hindustan 2021Z Wheel Loader, and Cat 424B Backhoe Loader at the ConMac exhibition in Guwahati.
  • Cat 320D2 and 313D2 Excavators have proven track record of working in difficult terrains and conditions in several parts of the world.
  • Caterpillar will also extend its successful global programme ‘Cat 360° Advantage’ to prospective customers in the North East.

At the forthcoming ConMac 2017, Caterpillar India will showcase the Cat® 320D2 and Cat 313D2 Excavators; Hindustan 2021Z Wheel Loader and 424B Backhoe Loader among its wide range of machines that are used in various sectors and applications. The exhibition will be held at Guwahati from March 2 - 4, 2017.  

Cat Excavators are equipped with unique features that enable them to undertake complex tasks in tough terrains. The excavators have a successful track record of proving their efficiency and working in such conditions in several parts of the world. Equipped with safety features such as anti-skid plating with countersunk bolts reduces the potential for slippage and trip hazards, providing a safe platform for all routine service and maintenance needs. The machines will be instrumental in working on construction and road building projects in the entire North Eastern region of India where construction activities in the roads and rail sectors are considered challenging due to the unfriendly topography and weather conditions prevalent in the region.

The Cat 320D2 Hydraulic Excavator features a powerful six-cylinder Cat C7.1 engine combined with mechanical governed fuel system which is well suited for local fuels in customer’s regions. The powertrain combines with the highly efficient hydraulic system to deliver excellent performance with low fuel consumption. 

It can also be equipped with advanced technology features such as Cat AccuGrade™ Grade Control System which simplifies digging, improves accuracy, increases productivity, minimizes material usage and lowers operating costs.  In-cab guidance features allow the operator with real-time bucket tip guidance in order to reach the target depth, grade and slope faster without traditional survey stakes.

The Cat 313D Series 2 Hydraulic Excavator is designed with durable heavy-duty structures for reliable operation in severe applications. The efficient hydraulic system combines powerful digging forces and intuitive low effort controls for precise operation. The world class operator station is ergonomically designed to ensure the operator stays comfortable throughout the working day. The 313D2 also features serviceability enhancements to simplify routine maintenance and reduce machine down time.

To save fuel and extend component life, hydraulic flow is minimized when controls are inactive. A regenerative system directly re-uses oil during boom-down and stick-in functions to further increase efficiency and lower operating costs. The hydraulic oil change interval has a service life of up to 3,000 hours without S∙O∙S, and a monitor shows when filter service is required.

Commenting on Caterpillar’s participation at ConMac, Mr. Amit Bansal, Sales Director, Building Construction Products stated, “A large number of infrastructure projects, especially highways and rail projects are currently underway or proposed to be implemented in the North Eastern regions. Cat products including excavators, backhoe loaders, skid steer loaders, etc. are well positioned to meet the demands of its customers.”
