Caterpillar has launched two new excavators in their Next Generation class. The 313 and 313 GC models include new features that:
- Elevate machine performance
- Increase efficiencies
- Lower the cost of ownership and operation
Improved Fuel Efficiency
Both models are powered by the fuel-efficient C3.6 engine, which meets the stringent emission standards of U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage V. This helps them offer up to 10% better fuel economy than previous models.
On top of that, the new Smart Mode operation matches engine and hydraulic power to the working conditions, which maximizes productivity and ECO mode, saving fuel in less-demanding applications.

Revamped Hydraulic System
The revamped hydraulic system includes a new main control valve that eliminates the need for pilot lines. This helps balance power and efficiency, reduces pressure losses, and lowers fuel consumption. Swing torque has been increased by 10%, providing efficiency when you are working on slopes and moving around on the job site.

Lower Operating Costs
According to Caterpillar, the 313 lowers the cost of ownership by 45%, while the 313 GC lowers the cost of ownership by 25%. This is due in large part to design upgrades that simplify maintenance when compared to the F-series machines.
- Fuel-efficient C3.6 engine that meets strict emission standards.
- A new hydraulic oil filter delivers improved filtration and longer change interval.
- New anti-drain valves keep the hydraulic oil clean during filter replacement.
- Filter life and maintenance intervals can be tracked through the in-cab monitor.
- Daily maintenance checkpoints are available from the ground level.
