Caterpillar launches two new 13-ton class Next Generation excavator models – the Cat® 313 and 313 GC – with new features that elevate machine performance, increase efficiencies and lower owning and operating costs.

CAT Next Generation 313 and 313 GC Excavators

  • New fuel-efficient Cat C3.6 engine powering these Next Gen excavators meets stringent U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage V emission standards, while offering up to 10% greater fuel economy than the previous Cat 313F and 313F GC models
  • New Smart Mode operation automatically matches engine and hydraulic power to working conditions for maximum productivity and ECO mode to save fuel in less-demanding applications
  • Engine’s cooling package delivers high ambient temperature capability of 125° F (52° C)
  • Responsive hydraulic system includes a new main control valve that eliminates the need for pilot lines, reduces pressure losses, and lowers fuel consumption
  • A 10% boost in swing torque elevates efficiency when working on slopes and moving around the jobsite.
  • New Cat Advansys™ bucket tips deliver increased life, retention, and fast changeover for maximum uptime on the jobsite
  • Larger cab designed with improved ingress/egress to boost comfort and productivity
  • Spacious cab offers a low-profile design plus large front, rear and side windows with narrow cab pillars to offer 40% greater visibility compared to F Series excavators, enhancing safe operation
  • Standard rearview and right-hand-sideview cameras further improve visibility of the operating environment
  • Ability to make hands-free calls through the new standard radio’s Bluetooth® connectivity for personal devices
  • A larger, 10-in (254-mm) LCD monitor offers touchscreen capability for easy navigation and features intuitive controls integrated into the monitor
  • Advanced viscous mounts significantly reduce cab vibration compared to previous models, reducing operator fatigue
  • A 33% improvement in defrost capability means these excavators are ready for work quickly on cold winter mornings
  • Technology such as onboard software, standard Cat Payload, standard Cat Product Link via VisionLink, new Remote Flash and standard Cat Grade with 2D (upgradable to Grade with Advanced 2D or Grade with 3D) boost efficiency and performance while reducing downtime
  • Design upgrades that simplify maintenance to deliver up to 25% lower costs than their F-series counterparts
  • New hydraulic oil filter delivers improved filtration and a 50% longer change interval at 3,000 hours
  • New anti-drain valves keep the hydraulic oil clean during filter replacement to improve system longevity
