Engine and technology

The efficiency savings with this 20t digger versus the previous model are quite incredible. As a result, it can save you up to 25% in fuel and gives you up to a 45% increase in efficiency. How is this achieved, we hear you say?

The CAT 320 Next Generation digger comes with the widest available selection of standard factory set technology.

  • PRODUCT LINK allows you to wirelessly connect all your technology to give the most transparent view of how the machine is performing.
  • GRADE with 2D, allowing you to select your target depth and slope, which then engages onboard processors and sensors to provide real-time guidance on the distance to grade.
  • 2D E-fence is a fantastic safety feature that keeps the front linkage within a predefined work area to avoid hazards such as traffic.
  • Cat Assist automatically controls boom and bucket angles to hold the bucket cutting edge precisely on grade.
  • With Payload from Cat, operators can instantly view load weights in real-time on the in-cab monitor display and therefore know precisely how much material is in the bucket and in the truck, every load, every time.
  • Lift Assist helps the digger stay firmly grounded when lifting heavy loads.
