The new Cat 306 CR Mini Hydraulic Excavator marks Caterpillar’s entry in the 6-ton class offering. The new mini excavator features heavy-duty main structures, a fuel-efficient engine, load-sensing hydraulics, spacious cab and exclusive Cat Stick Steer system. It shares a similar controls layout and common components with the full line of Cat Next Generation mini excavators to simplify training, offer quick adaptation for operation and lower owning/operating costs.

With its long stick option, the 306 CR delivers a maximum dig depth of 162 in and 15,821-lb maximum operating weight when equipped with the sealed and pressurized cab. A canopy alternative to the pressurized cab will be available for customers in 2020.  Built with a swing boom, the Cat 306 CR’s compact radius design provides a low, 58-in tail swing with counterweight for working close to obstructions.
