326 Hydraulic Excavator

326 Hydraulic Excavator

The Cat® 326 Excavator brings premium performance with simple-to-use technologies like Cat GRADE with 2D, Grade Assist, and Payload – all standard equipment from the factory to boost your operator efficiencies up to 45%. Combine these features with 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 10% and you have a low-cost-per-unit-of-production excavator that’s perfect for medium- to heavy-duty applications.
Not all features are available in all regions. Consult your Cat dealer for specific configurations available in your region.
