Engine and technology

This 36t excavator comes equipped with a Cat C9.3 Tier 5 diesel engine. As a result, the digger allows you to meet the stringent emission targets set by today’s progressive construction companies. Team this with efficiency savings of 15% on fuel and a 45% increase in efficiency, versus previous models, and you have an excellent machine for any forward-looking construction site.

The Cat 336 Next Generation digger comes with an excellent selection of efficiency supportive technology.

  • PRODUCT LINK from Cat allows you to wirelessly connect all your technology to give the most transparent view of how the machine is performing.
  • GRADE with 2D, allows you to select your target depth and slope, which in turn 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 Cat Payload operators can instantly view load weights in real-time on the in-cab monitor display and 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.

In addition, there are three power modes available to the operator. These consist of Power, Smart, and Eco mode, thus the engine allows your operators to work more efficiently by switching between the different modes.


The advanced hydraulic system found in a Cat Next Generation excavator is second to none. This 36t digger provides the optimum balance of power and efficiency while giving the operator the control they need for precise digging requirements.

This coupled with a regeneration circuit for boom & stick, reverse swing damping valve, automatic swing parking brake, and boom & stick lowering control valves, the hydraulics will work smoothly, causing minimum operator fatigue.

Operator Comfort

The ROPS compliant cab is one of the safest on the market, not to mention, one of the most comfortable. Therefore they are fitted with:

  • a nice wide heated seat with air-adjustable suspension,
  • easy access in and out of the cab with the tip-up left console,
  • high resolution 254mm LCD touch monitor,
  • Bluetooth connectivity,
  • storage,
  • cup and bottle holders,
  • and climate control

In addition, advanced viscous mounts reduce cab vibration by up to 50% versus previous models, ensuring a day of smooth operation for your operators.
