The Cat F series wheeled excavators include the M314F, M316F, M318F, M320F, and M322F. They use the Cat C4.4 ACERT (M314F and M316F) and C7.1 ACERT (other models) engines. These engines feature high torque and fast response to load changes, while meeting current emission standards. 

Emissions technology includes the Cat NOx-reduction system, selective catalytic reduction system, diesel oxidation catalyst, and high-pressure/common-rail fuel. The Cat clean emission module also includes a diesel particulate filter for all models, excluding the M314F and M316F, which do not require it to meet the emission standards.

New for these machines is a system that adjusts engine speed to match speed demands during travels. The system provides the exact level of power required for varying roading situations, resulting in reduced fuel consumption and reduced sound levels.

The machine comes standard with a new permanent auxiliary-flow feature that simplifies control of work tools requiring constant rotation, such as mowers and mulchers. An added standard feature is extended flexibility for work-tool-function assignment, on the left foot pedal and joysticks. The system allows more freedom to choose which work tool function will be assigned to which control.

New quick-coupler controls now are operated from a switch, not from the monitor, in order to comply with the new ISO 13031 standard.

Rethinking Utilization: Using the Energy in Parked EVs

By Facundo Tassara
Think the return on investment for electric vehicles (EVs) is too long? Vehicle-to-grid technology allows EVs to earn money while parked by utilizing their large batteries to provide energy storage services for buildings, utilities, and the grid. This extra money can reduce the total cost of ownership of EVs.

Size Matters

By Sherb Brown
There is little doubt that the folks out there with 5,000-10,000 vehicles have a good handle on how much they should be paying; for everything from bucket trucks to sedan floor mats. But some of our recent survey data shows that vast hordes of the fleet market are paying close to retail rates for a lot of products and services.
