Medium Excavators(Non Current)

Caterpillar serves all regions of the world so we build many different configurations of hydraulic excavators. Your Cat® dealer has exact machine specifications available in your area to help you choose what will best meet your needs.

320B S VA Hydraulic Excavator

The 320B S is a specific configuration of the 320B hydraulic excavator. It has a larger, heavier undercarriage than the standard 320B specifically designed for work in severe duty underfoot conditions. The 320B S has a narrow gauge (shipping width 2.5 m) for easy transport, and is intended for work requiring an extra rugged undercarriage (such as mountainous areas).
