New Cat 308 CR Mini Excavator Improves Operator Experience & Performance

The Cat 308 CR Mini Excavator delivers maximum power and performance in a mini design to help you work in a wide range of applications. The latest 308 compact radius model has fuel-efficient engines, load sensing hydraulics, and an exclusive stick steer system to provide customers with best-in-class performance, operator experience, and serviceability. The Cat 308 CR Mini Excavator core features include:

All Day Comfort

A sealed and pressurized cab with an improved air conditioning system ensures all-weather climate control. Plus, standard suspension seating and adjustable wrist rests are designed to keep you working comfortably day after day.

Easy Operation

Machine controls are easy to use with customizable settings to control hydraulic performance and responsiveness for different applications as well as operator preferences. The 308 is also equipped with an easy-to-read LCD monitor, featuring a standard security system and jog-dial for simple machine navigation and ergonomic interaction. Cabs are also compatible with Bluetooth, allowing operators to safely answer calls and stream audio.

Stick Steer Travel Mode

Operating the mini excavator around the job site is easier than ever with the exclusive Cat® Stick Steer mode for improved operator control and convenience. Easily switch between traditional lever/foot-pedal steering and low-effort joystick controls with the push of a button. Cruise control also allows you to continuously travel without holding the levers or joystick down, which is ideal for tracking or grading long distances. All you need to do is steer, and you’ll still have the ability to safely stop the machine in multiple ways.

Safety on the Job Site

Your safety is our top priority, and the Cat 308 CR Mini Excavator is designed to keep you safe on the job at all times. A fluorescent retractable seat belt, courtesy work lights, and back-up camera are just a few of the safety features built into the machine.

Simple Serviceability for Less Downtime

All standard maintenance points are accessible from the ground level, making maintenance quick and easy on the Cat 308 CR Mini Excavator. You can spend less money on parts and labor costs and spend more time getting work done with up to 10 percent lower operating costs, improved fuel efficiency, and longer service intervals.

Big Performance in a Mini Size

The Cat 308 may be mini, but it is a powerful machine with up to 20 percent more performance in lift, swing, travel, and multifunction to help you get the job done more efficiently.

Improved performance and optimal operator experience make the 308 CR Mini Excavator the perfect choice when deciding to upgrade your heavy-duty fleet.
