Cat® 303E CR Mini Hydraulic Excavator | Reduced Weight

The Cat® 303E CR mini hydraulic excavator features a reduced weight that does not compromise performance. The new model better accommodates customers who require a maximum transport weight of 10,000 lbs.

Most states require the tow vehicle driver to have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) if the loaded trailer exceeds 10,000 lbs. The new 303E CR mini hydraulic excavator is only 6,750 lbs when equipped with a canopy, bucket, and full fuel tank, while previous models weighed up to 7,300 lbs. The reduction allows more opportunity to accommodate trailer weight and ancillary equipment while remaining well under the 10,000 lb limit. The new model is 60 inches wide across the blade and has zero-radius tail swing. It’s easy to transport and designed to work efficiently in smaller spaces and job sites.

An optional 588 lb counterweight is available for customers who do not need to meet the 10,000 lb transport requirement. This configuration allows operators to maintain the previous machine weight when necessary for heavy-duty applications. The counterweight is also useful for heavy attachments such as couplers and thumbs.
