The new Cat® 340F Long Reach and 352F Long Reach Excavators are specifically designed for applications that require exceptionally deep digging or excavating at extended distances, such as working in sand and gravel pits, shaping long slopes, and cleaning settling ponds. The new models are equally capable of digging and lifting applications, with large buckets and heavy-duty high/wide undercarriages that provide added stability over the side. These special-application machines are designed by Caterpillar engineers and manufactured in Caterpillar factories, resulting in an integrated design that ensures the optimum reliability, performance, and serviceability that customers have long experienced with Cat D models. The 340F Long Reach excavator will be available in third quarter 2015 while the 352F Long Reach excavator will be available in first quarter 2016.
