Work like no other with our wheeled excavators. The F Series generation is made to help you take on the wide variety of the challenges you face every day, more easily and with more pleasure, to keep you on the road to your success.
Focus on the Road, Not on Your Foot
No need to press the pedal all the time.
- Choose the very speed you wish
- Press the quick access button on the monitor
- Enjoy the ride
It’s as Easy as That.
Press Go and Relax
Swing and Auto Travel Lock: As Fast, As Easy, As Safe
No need for the operator to bend to engage the swing lock pin.

- Align the upper to the lower frame,
- Enjoy the ride: a green indicator confirms the swing and the implements have been automatically locked.
It’s As Easy As That.
Integrated Pin Code – Switch Off and Relax
No need to buy an optional security system to protect your equipment against theft.
- The pin code is integrated into the monitor (standard)
- Entering the right code allows the engine to start
Presses the pedal for you, reducing the number of actions you need to do
The machine automatically detects when the service brake and axle need to be locked (like when digging), or unlocked (roading), hence removing the need for the operator to systematically press the pedal. Brake and axle are released automatically by pressing the travel pedal again.
Fast, Precise, Flexible
When it comes to moving material quickly, you need efficient hydraulics – the type the F Series can deliver.
Efficient Design, Smart and Fast
- Simple Design: The new hydraulic valve compartment and routings offer a simple and clean design to help ensure durability. Everything is reachable from ground level.
- Smart Main Hydraulics: The system allows reducing the load on the engine when not needed, which translates into lower fuel consumption.
- Dedicated Secondary Hydraulics: A closed hydraulic circuit is dedicated to the swing only. Having two separate pumps, one for the swing and the other for the other functions allows faster and smoother combined movements.
Control Like No Other
- Electronic Pump Control – Controllability is one of the main attributes of Cat excavators, and one of the key contributors to this is the Electronic Pump Control (EPC) that’s designed to improve response time and precision. It puts flow exactly where you need it, when you need it, which means a much smoother operation and greater efficiency.
- Adjustable Hydraulic Sensitivity – Allows you to adjust the aggressiveness of the machine according to the application.
- Stick Regeneration Circuit – Increases efficiency and helps enhance controllability for higher productivity.
Proportional Auxiliary Hydraulics, Tremendous Versatility
Medium pressure function (for tilting buckets or rotating tools), high pressure lines and circuit, hydraulic quick coupler circuit: they all come standard, which allows you to switch from one work tool to another, without the need to add lines and hydraulic circuits.
Strength and Versatility at 35 km/h (22 mph)
Heavy Duty Axles
Long life with effective heavy duty axles. The transmission is mounted directly on the rear axle for protection and optimum ground clearance. The front axle offers wide oscillating and steering angles.
Advanced Disc Brake System
Minimizes the rocking effect when working free on wheels. The disc brake system acts directly on the hub instead of the drive shaft to avoid planetary gear backlash.
Fenders provide excellent coverage of all tires, protecting the machine and surroundings from mud and stones being thrown up.
Keep both hands on the joysticks even when simultaneously moving the implements and repositioning the machine, by the use of the slider switch on the right joystick.
New Blade Design
- Parallel kinematic to keep the blade parallel to the ground, in every height position
- A profile that allows material to roll better and minimizes material packing
Options To Take on Your Far-reaching or Up-close Tasks
Booms and sticks are welded, box section structures with thick, multi-plate fabrications in high stress areas for the tough work you do.
The choice of various booms and sticks provides the right balance of reach and digging forces for all applications.
- Medium stick – 2500 mm (8'2") for greater crowd force and lift capacity
- Long stick – 2800 mm (9'2") for greater depth and reach
- Industrial stick – 3300 mm (10'10") for use with grapples in material handling and industrial applications
- Variable Adjustable (VA) – improved right side visibility and roading balance. When working in tight quarters or lifting heavy loads, the VA boom offers the best flexibility.
- One-Piece Boom – Fits best for all standard applications such as truck loading and digging. A unique straight section in the curve of the side plate reduces stress flow and helps increase boom life.
Reduces Stress and Vibration
Scraping rock and finishing work is easy and fast. SmartBoom simplifies the task and allows more focus on stick and bucket, while the boom freely goes up and down without using pump flow.
The front parts automatically follow the hammer while penetrating the rock. Blank shots or excessive force on the hammer are avoided resulting in longer life for the hammer and the machine. Similar advantages with vibratory plate compactors.
Loading trucks from a bench is more productive and fuel efficient as the return cycle is reduced while the boom down function does not require pump flow.
Fast Travel Speed with More Comfort
The ride control system lets you travel faster over rough terrain with improved ride quality for the operator. Accumulators are acting as shock absorbers to dampen the front part motion. It can be activated through a button located on the soft switch panel in the cab.
Optimizes Your Performance
Get the Most from Your Machine
If you have multiple tasks to get done, the M320F can help. You can easily expand all the possibilities it offers by utilizing any of the variety of Cat attachments.
Dig, Load, Finish and Compact
A wide range of buckets offers solutions for digging, trenching, loading and finishing works. The addition of a Cat Compactor will introduce your machine to utility work, site prep, road repair and pipeline work.
Move and Handle Material
Choose from one of three different thumb styles to work with your bucket and you have the instant ability to move and handle brush, rocks and debris.
Demolish and Break
Our hammer includes a buffer to improve your comfort and protect your machine from vibration. Fully enclosed, it is ideal when working in noise regulated areas.
Sort and Load
Demolition and Sorting Grapples bring your machine into demolition and waste handling opportunities. Jaws open wide to move volumes, yet are nimble enough to pull a single copper wire out of a pile. Their 360° rotation capability allows you to place the grapple where you want it without moving the machine.
Scrap and Recycle
Shears also have the ability to rotate 360°. A pulverizer allows you to crush and reduce concrete.
Match your Cat hydraulic work tools to your Cat machine, and get the most out of the standard, built-in software. Work tool changes have never been easier!
Job Site Confidence
From the operators seat, visual and audible indicators help assure that the attachment is coupled. Your Cat excavator hydraulics, mechanisms inside the coupler, and digging forces all work together to assure the attachment stays engaged. The Cat Pin Grabber coupler is the secure way to decrease downtime by allowing quick attachment change and increase job site flexibility.
When Uptime Counts
Convenient Access Built In
You can reach routine maintenance items like fuel and engine oil filters and fluid taps at ground level while fuel and DEF tank with engine air filter are accessible from the safety of the slip-resistant new service platform. Compartments feature wide composite service doors, designed to be more resistant to shocks, which all include gas struts to facilitate the opening. Components are now gathered in specific dedicated compartments, like the special electrical compartments.
A Cool Design for Any Temperature
The side-by-side and radial fan design allows greater cooling performance. The system is completely separated from the engine compartment to reduce noise and heat and all radiators are gathered in the same compartment while featuring easy-to-clean cores with a tilting device that requires no tool to unlock.
A Fresh Idea
Ventilation inside the cab allows outside air to enter through a fresh air filter. The filter is located on the side of the cab to make it easy to reach, and it is protected by a lockable door that can be opened with the engine key.
Lube and Fuel Standard Features
An electric lubricator system is an available time-saving standard feature for greasing the whole upper carriage. Greasing points for the undercarriage are kept to a minimum and grouped. An electric refueling pump is also standard. The hose is stored in a dedicated tray, for more cleanliness. Add in the new electric lift pump removing the need to prime the system manually, the standard fuel and water separator and you get a machine that does the fastidious works for you.
Keep it simple.
