Ease of use

Like all Cat excavators, this machine is as straightforward as possible to operate. The Cat 302.7D CR gives the operator a large comfortable space in which to work.

In addition, the ergonomic control layout, travel pedals and adjustable wrist rests are engineered to minimize operator fatigue and increase productivity.

This design comes with simultaneous operation. This means that both the machine’s upper body swing and boom offset can be controlled simultaneously, giving faster machine positioning and object handling. Therefore, delivering a more productive site.

To add further to site productivity the dozer float function ensures that ground levelling and finishing applications are fast and easier, making site clean-up much more efficient.


For the operator’s protection, there is a canopy with FOPS ISO 10262 (Level 1), Tip Over Protection (TOPS) ISO 12117.

In addition, the Cat automatic swing lock is an excellent safety feature promoting safe transportation of the machine. It locks the machine’s upper body in place when the control console is raised or the engine is stopped.
