Easy to transport and greater site access

Easy Transportation

Compact in size and weighing just 1380 kg (3,042 lb) in standard configuration with canopy the Cat® 301.4C is easy to transport on a conventional trailer behind a pick up truck or transit van. Two threaded bosses mounted in the roof allow fitting of crane lugs and simplify lifting of the machine.

Extending Undercarriage and Blade

An extending undercarriage and fold out dozer blade allow the machine to be configured for excellent working stability and optimum performance. Blade extensions simply rotate and lock out of the way using retained pins eliminating the potential for lost parts.

Performance and Durability

Powerful operation and greater uptime

Powerful Engine and Load Sensing Hydraulics

The 17.9 kW (24.3 hp) engine is matched with a load sensing hydraulic system to provide excellent digging performance and smooth control. Low noise and vibration levels deliver comfortable operation.

High Bucket Breakout Force

The 301.4C delivers 16 kN (3,597 lbf) of bucket force, ideal for dealing with heavy ground and tough applications.

Auxiliary Hydraulics as Standard Fit

Machine is ‘ready to work.’ Hammer and two way lines complete with quick disconnect fittings are standard. Connections are located close to the tool to reduce hose lengths and any potential damage. Hoses are protected by routing them through the boom.

Boom Cylinder Protection

The boom cylinder is mounted above the boom structure to increase the machines durability and reduce the potential for downtime.

Productive Comfort

Large operator environment; ergonomic control layout

Operator Environment

The Cat 301.4C gives the operator a large comfortable space in which to work. The ergonomic control layout, travel pedals and adjustable wrist rests are engineered to reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity. The layout is designed for easy cleaning, minimizing downtime between jobs. There is a choice of cab with heater or canopy available. The canopy offering two sided access for even greater on site versatility.

Customer Support

Low operating costs with excellent services and options

Excellent Service Access

Daily checks and regular service points including fuel and hydraulic oil fill are easily reached via the large steel rear door. The main hydraulic valve and lines are also easily reached through a removable floor plate and side panels. The machine has durable steel body panels all around, offering good resistance to impact damage and helping to maintain the machine’s appearance and value.
