The new Cat 336 Hydraulic Excavator has a powerful hydraulic system that delivers strong digging forces and swing torque to boost production in the most demanding applications, according to a press release.
The 336 excavator will deliver reliable operation in a variety of applications. The Cat C7.1 engine offers four million hours of service. Three engine modes match excavator power to the demands of the job while saving fuel, according to Cat. Power mode delivers maximum power to meet the most demanding tasks; Smart mode automatically matches engine and hydraulic power to digging conditions to lower fuel consumption. Reducing engine speed to a constant 1500 rpm, Eco mode minimizes fuel consumption.
Engine oil and fuel filters are synchronized for service at 1,000 hours, increasing uptime and reducing parts and labor costs compared to the 336F Series excavator.
High-ambient temperature capability of 125˚ F, cold-start capability at 0˚ F, and the ability to work at up to 14,764 ft above sea level enable the 336 to work in various climates. Auto hydraulic warmup in cold temperatures gets the machine to work faster and prolongs the life of machine components. The air intake filter with pre-cleaner features high dust capacity, and a high-efficiency hydraulic fan offers optional automatic reverse to keep cores free from debris.
