The Cat 303E CR mini hydraulic excavator has been reduced in weight to accommodate customers who require a maximum 10,000-lb. transport weight.

The 303E CR weighs 6,750 lbs. when equipped with a canopy, full fuel tank, and 24-inch bucket, eliminating the need for a driver with a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) to transport the unit. The weight is down from the previous machine weight of 7,300 lbs.

The new 303E CR is 60 inches wide across the blade and has zero-radius tail swing. The machine is designed to work efficiently in small spaces and on congested job sites. The cab version will also benefit from the weight reduction.

For customers who wish to maintain the current machine weight, an optional 588-lb. counterweight is available. This configuration is especially useful in heavy-duty applications and when using heavy attachment configurations that include couplers and thumbs.
