Engine and design

Like its larger counterpart the CAT 315 GC Next Generation, this 13t 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.

By operating to a net power of 54.3kW, this means that the engine functions below the 55kW threshold and therefore does not require the addition of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), or ad-blue as it is known. Yet it is still able to generate an excellent digging force, ensuring that jobs are completed in a time and cost-efficient manner.

The CAT 313 GC Next Generation digger is the smallest in the range to come with two power modes- Power mode and Smart mode. The new Smart mode automatically adjusts engine and hydraulic power for the highest fuel efficiency – less power for tasks such as swinging and more power for digging. Thus, allowing you to achieve up to 15% fuel saving versus previous models, supporting your on-site budgetary requirements.

The engine and hydraulics balance along with the compact radius design ensuring that this machine has the power to complete most light to medium-sized construction jobs with the ability to fit into confined spaces. Thereby allowing you to work confidently in applications, such as road construction jobs with lane closures and next to buildings and other structures.


This digger comes with auto hydraulic warmup and auto two-speed travel. Once again, supporting a smooth operational environment.

Auxiliary hydraulic options give you the versatility to use a wide range of Cat attachments. Buckets are compatible across the models.

Operator Comfort

The full-sized cab that comes with this excellent digger really is leading the way in optimal ergonomic design. The designers at Cat have specifically focused on reducing one of the most common reasons that staff have to take time off, back pain. By aligning the controls in front of the operator they have eliminated the need to twist, thus removing any additional strain on the operator’s back whilst working.

This market-leading cab 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,
  • an 8inch 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 GC Next Generation excavator boats a keyless push-button engine start. Thus, adding additional security and traceability of use whilst on-site. It manages this through the use of Operator ID codes to limit and track machine access.

By using Operator ID codes, the joystick function can be customized to match the operator’s preferences, therefore making the transition into the working day smoother.

An added benefit of this next-generation cab is that it is an ISO-certified ROPS version, where sound is suppressed, but visibility is excellent through large windows.
