The new Cat® 325 hydraulic excavator features a compact radius design, making it ideal for working in tight spaces. It delivers easy-to-use technologies to reduce operator fatigue and boost efficiencies. The new excavator also offers:

  • Reduced fuel consumption
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Improved operator comfort

The 325 introduces many new features designed to improve versatility. Due to the ever-growing restrictions on transport requirements, two new counterweights are now available:

  • An 8.3 ton, designed to maximize lifting performance
  • A 4.9 ton, designed to contain the overall machine weight where more stringent transport limits are in place
  • In Japan, the standard length undercarriage is available, allowing for even smaller and compact machines, as well as the previously available long undercarriage
  • An optional blade is available from the factory, making cleaning jobs easier while acting as a stabilizer to improve lifting capability


  • Reach or Variable Angle boom
  • A variety of hydraulic tool controls
  • Choice of couplers and buckets
  • Cat C4.4 engine reduces fuel consumption up to 25% compared to the 325F
  • The aftertreatment system requires no maintenance or downtime
  • The new Cat model features three selectable power modes to match the excavator to the application for increased fuel efficiency. The excavator has a standard high-ambient operating temperature capability of 122 degrees Fahrenheit (50 degrees Celsius) and standard cold start capability of 0 degrees F (-18 degrees C).
  • Programmable joystick and high-resolution touchscreen monitor
  • Keyless push-button start
  • 10% improved swing torque
  • Optional Smartboom™ allows the boom to travel up and down freely without using pump flow
