The new Cat M319 wheeled excavator features a short front-end design and tail swing to efficiently work in confined areas. It delivers up to 15% more swing torque than previous models. A dedicated swing pump improves operating efficiency by providing more consistent power for better multitasking capabilities

Powered by the 171-hp Cat C4.4 engine, the M319 tailors performance and production to jobsite needs while meeting U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions standards. With features like Eco mode to minimize fuel consumption in less demanding applications, the excavator uses up to 5% less fuel than previous models, lowering long-term owning and operating costs, according to the company.

The excavator spends more time working by quickly traveling between sites at speeds reaching  21.7 mph. With its minimal 6-foot, 3-inch tail swing radius, operators can complete dig, swing, and dump tasks with limited side overhang when working on tight jobsites.

Its updated advanced hydraulic system delivers a balance of power and efficiency. To increase machine flexibility, a wide range of Cat attachments can be configured for use.

Whether working from dirt or asphalt, the M319 tackles a range of projects from utility work to general excavating to trenching. The machine has a standard high-ambient temperature capability of 125˚ F and cold-start capability of 0˚ F, plus can work at altitudes as high as 9,843 feet without derating.
