A new, spacious cab promotes operator comfort in the 320D L and 320D LRR, and there’s a new cab layout in the 321D LCR. The excavators have about seven percent more engine power and increased hydraulic pressure for increased breakout force, a greater lift force and increased drawbar pull, which together deliver faster cycle times and superior productivity. The heavy lift circuit is now standard on the DSeries. And the touch of a switch, heavy lift boosts hydraulic pressure for increased performance. www.CAT.com
