The Cat C6.6 ACERT engine delivers more horsepower using significantly less fuel than the previous series engine. It is also designed to meet Stage IIIB emission standards.  The engine does this by featuring wall and thru flow filters that perform through the machine work cycle.  And the good news is that it does this without operator intervention.

The fuel economy is enhanced through the use of speed control.  This, originally innovative, and now a necessary tool maintains speed regardless of load.  In addition, the machine has two different power modes: high power and economy. The operator can easily change between modes.  They do this through the monitor or console switch to meet the needs for the job at hand – all to help manage and conserve fuel.


The main control valve and auxiliary valves on the Cat320E uses a high-pressure system to tackle the toughest of work in short order. The machine features a highly efficient and simple back-to-back main control valve to improve fuel consumption; it also allows for greater tool versatility.

Operator comfort

The main aim of the Cat cab design is to provide the operator with comfort and convenience.  This in turn enables them to remain comfortable and therefore productive.

To this end, all seats include a reclining back, upper and lower seat slide adjustments, and height and tilt angle adjustments to meet operator needs.

The right and left joystick consoles are entirely adjusted to meet individual preferences. With the touch of a button, one-touch idle reduces engine speed to help save fuel.  In addition, the heavy-lift mode increases machine system pressure to improve lift applications.

The 320E is equipped with a 7″ LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) monitor.  Guess what, that’s 40% bigger than the previous models with higher resolution for better visibility. In addition to an improved keypad and added functionality, it’s programmable to provide information in a choice of 42 languages.  Going a long way to support today’s diverse workforce.
