325 Hydraulic Excavator

325 Hydraulic Excavator

The Cat® 325 Excavator brings premium performance with simple-to-use technologies like Cat Grade with 2D, Grade Assist, Lift Assist and Payload – all standard equipment from the factory to boost your operator efficiencies up to 45%. Combine these features with a compact radius design for working in tight spaces, a new cab, longer maintenance intervals that lower your maintenance costs up to 20%, and a power system that reduces fuel consumption by up to 25% and you have a low-cost-per-unit-of-production excavator that’s perfect for medium- to heavy-duty applications. Optional blade allows for faster job site cleaning and leveling as well as better lifting capabilities. Optional heavy counterweight allows you to maximize the performance of this compact radius machine.
