With its compact radius design, the new Cat 335 Next Gen Hydraulic Excavator delivers the tightest tail swing radius in the industry for enhanced maneuverability, making it ideal for working on space-restricted jobsites, such as road projects with lane closures, and excavating next to buildings.

The Cat C7.1 engine powering the 335 meets the most stringent emissions standards with a no-maintenance aftertreatment system. Three selectable operating modes — Power, Smart, and Eco — with one-touch low idle help to reduce fuel consumption by up to 10%. The standard engine configuration offers high ambient temperature operating capacity of 126 degrees Fahrenheit, cold start capability of 0 degrees F, and 15,090-foot altitude capability.

The 335 features increased stick and bucket cylinder sizes to provide 15% greater digging forces to power through hard ground and asphalt. Hydraulic power is increased by 20% to boost productivity. Yet fuel consumption remains similar to the previous model.

The use of Cat Remote Services allows fleet operations to troubleshoot and update machine software to improve efficiency. Remote Troubleshoot allows Cat dealers to perform diagnostic testing remotely and pinpoint potential issues while the 335 keeps working. Reducing update time by as much as 50%, Remote Flash allows for on-board software to be updated at a time when it’s convenient to the work schedule and without a technician being present.
