The Cat® 301.6 mini excavator delivers power and performance in a compact size to help you work in a wide range of applications, including agriculture, demolition and landscaping. This Cat Next Generation mini excavator handles digging and lifting tasks with ease, and with its dozer blade, can also be employed for a range of backfilling and grading tasks. The second smallest in Cat’s Next Generation mini excavator class, which includes the Cat 301.5, Cat 301.7, Cat 301.8 and Cat 302 CR, the 1.6-tonne Cat 301.6 mini excavator provides an extensive range of benefits across safety, operation and servicing, to deliver a best-in-class machine that enables you to get more work done in less time and in areas that larger mini excavators can’t access. 

Cat knows that its customers want to get the job done faster with their mini excavators and with the Cat 301.6 they’ve delivered. This powerful and versatile mini excavator features more control for less effort with the stick steer control, lower operating costs with auto idle and auto engine shutdown features and greater hydraulic capacity to dig and lift with more force. Upgrades have taken place across the sealed and pressurised operator cab, including the Next Generation LCD screen to make reading critical machine info easier and adjustable wrist rests for increased comfort. Operator safety has also been enhanced with the Cat 301.6, with fully-certified ROPS, TOPS and Top Guard, extra work lights, fluorescent seat belt and tie-down points on track frames.  
 
With emphasis on power and productivity, the Cat 301.6 with its load-sensing hydraulic system provides greater lifting and digging force than other mini excavators of the same size, and has the range to manage a  wide variety of power attachments. Hastings Deering offers the Cat 301.6 for sale at our branches across Queensland and the Northern Territory. If you recognise the business benefits of enhancing your fleet with an industry-leading mini excavator from Cat, contact your local Hastings Deering branch and trial the new Cat 301.6 mini excavator today.
