325 Hydraulic Excavator

325 Hydraulic Excavator

The Cat® 325 Excavator brings premium performance with simple-to-use technologies like Cat Grade with 2D, Grade Assist, Lift Assist and Payload – all standard equipment from the factory to help boost operator efficiencies. Combine these features with a compact radius design for working in tight spaces, an ergonomic cab, extended maintenance intervals that help lower your maintenance costs, and a power system that helps reduce fuel consumption and you have a low-cost-per-unit-of-production excavator that’s perfect for medium- to heavy-duty applications. An optional blade allows for fast job site cleaning and leveling, and an optional heavy counterweight helps maximize the performance of this compact radius machine.
