Caterpillar's next-gen 20-ton Cat® 323D3 and Cat 320D3 excavators
The excavators, showcased at bauma Conexpo India 2018, received positive reviews for their efficiency and value from customers. "The excavators provide higher productivity, lower fuel consumption, lower maintenance cost and improved operator comfort," said Gurman Reen, Director - Sales & Marketing at Global Construction & Infrastructure Division of Caterpillar India. "The machines have state-of-the-art technology and are designed to meet customer demand for low owning and operating costs. They come with simple, easy-to-maintain, robust systems that keep the machine up and running all day long."
V.S Saravanan, partner, Surya Narayanan Blue Metals, remarked, "Reliability of the Cat machines is one of the main reasons why we buy them. The fuel economy per metric ton is around 20 percent better than the other machines that we are using. We see a lot of difference in their productivity and in operator comfort. I will recommend any good friend of mine to buy Cat machines as they are reliable, economical and backed by a strong dealership network for after-sales service."
Sunil Mondal, owner of B.K Mondal & Company, said, "These efficient next-gen Cat excavators have more hydraulic power resulting in increased productivity and lower maintenance cost. They provide a blend of technology prowess and value for money, and have helped us deliver a lot more in the last three months than ever before.
The Cat 323D3 and Cat 320D3 also come with the Cat Product Link™ telematics system that collects data from multiple sensors integrated into the machine, and wirelessly transmits the information to the Cat VisionLink® system, the web-based interface that allows the machine users to quickly access data such as machine location, idle time, utilization, and maintenance alerts.
In addition to excavators, Caterpillar's range of products include backhoe loaders, motor graders, skid steer loaders, track-type tractors and wheel loaders under the Cat and SEM brands, and FG Wilson generator sets. Product support and maintenance service for all the products are available through the vast support service network of two Cat dealers in India – GMMCO and Gainwell Commosales.
