Cat 345 is a high-performance, ruggedly built machine that can handle any excavation task. The 345 CAT excavator is built to work in harsh environments and provides more power, productivity, and dependability than competitors in its class.
The Caterpillar 345 has a tried-and-true design that delivers the highest performance levels in its class. The hydraulic system provides high flow rates and pressure for working in difficult soil conditions or under heavy loads while maintaining digging depth with minimal interruptions. The hydraulic system maintains constant control with a combination of high flow rates and low-pressure drops for dependable performance. If necessary, the dual-pump design allows you to operate with one pump turned off.
The engine was designed to provide maximum durability under continuous hard use conditions while also providing optimal fuel efficiency at all operating speeds. The engine has an electronically controlled fuel injection pump that can be programmed for optimum performance under various load conditions using the Dynamic Energy Management (DEM) system or manually via the operator panel or optional remote control box (RCB).
The 345 Caterpillar has an optional four-speed transmission that allows it to handle jobs like trenching that require constant speed.
