Engine and design of the Cat 313 digger

This 13ton digger has a C3.6 Tier 4 Final/ Stage V diesel engine which meets EU Stage V emission standards.  Thus, helping to support your environmental targets on site.  Pair this with adjustable engine modes and you have a very efficient engine.

Smart mode automatically matches engine and hydraulic power to your working conditions. Power mode constantly provides maximum productivity and ECO mode minimizes fuel consumption in less-demanding applications.  All of which contributes to up to 5% fewer C02 emissions than the outgoing model.

The engine and hydraulics balance and Cat technologies ensure that this machine has the power to complete most light to medium-sized construction jobs.  Whilst allowing you to work confidently and safely in applications, such as road construction projects with lane closures and next to permanent structures.

You can practice using these Cat technologies in advance of your digger hire, by downloading the Cat Monitor Simulator app from the Apple and Play Stores.

Hydraulics for this 13t digger for hire

Work more efficiently with a hired 13t digger.  This Cat 313 Next Gen has an advanced hydraulic system which provides the optimum balance of power and efficiency whilst giving you the control you need for precise digging requirements.

This translates to a 10% increase in swing torque versus the previous model.  Thus, making travelling, swinging, and working on slopes easy, or backfilling trenches and moving around your site faster than before!

Operator Comfort in the Cat 313 Next Generation

The ASHBROOK Cat 313 Next Generation excavators come with deluxe cabs which means additional comfort for the operator. The deluxe seat is a pleasure to sit in for long periods as it is heated and air-adjustable.

Cat has made this cab easier to make your way in and out of with a tip-up left console.  Once you’re in the controls are within easy reach and the customisable joystick can be programmed to each operator’s preference.

The cab in these 13ton excavators for hire comes with:

  • a nice wide seat, adjustable to fit all operator sizes,
  • easy access in and out of the cab with the tip-up left console,
  • large windows for outstanding visibility,
  • wide spacing between the consoles for ease of use,
  • a 10inch monitor from which you can control the majority of the machine settings,
  • Bluetooth connectivity,
  • storage
  • cup and bottle holders
  • and climate control.

In addition, the CAT 313 Next Generation excavator boasts a keyless push-button engine start.  Thus, adding additional security and traceability of use whilst on-site.  It manages this by using Operator ID codes to limit and track machine access.
