The excavators are said to have next generation technology

Caterpillar has launched their next generation 36-ton (32.6 tonne) size class excavators.

The company say that the new 336 and 336 GC excavators offer unique combinations of features designed to match contractors’ productivity and cost targets.

The Cat 336 features standard integrated Cat Connect Technology and has the most power and lift capacity of the two models. The 336 GC combines productivity features with reduced fuel consumption.

The 336 has the industry’s highest level of standard factory-equipped technology. Integrated Cat Connect Technology is said to increase operating efficiency by up to 45% over traditional grading operations.

The standard Cat Grade with 2D system provides guidance for depth, slope, and horizontal distance to grade through the standard touchscreen monitor.

Cat Payload is said to deliver precise load targets and increased loading efficiency with on-the-go weighing and real-time payload estimates without swinging to prevent truck over/underloading.

The company said that the excavators produce more work per unit of fuel than the models they are replacing — up to 15% more fuel efficiency for the 336.
