Delivering up to 20% more performance and 15% lower ownership costs, the Cat® 301.7 CR mini excavator delivers industry-leading power and performance in a compact size. This helps you get more work done in less time across a range of applications, such as agriculture, forestry, landscaping and demolition. This best-in-class Cat mini excavator is designed to deliver big performance in a compact design, and with its strong lift and dig performance powered by load-sensing hydraulics with variable displacement piston pump and a compact radius design and retractable undercarriage, lets you tackle big tasks while working in the tightest areas. When you’re ready to get more work done for less effort, the Cat 301.7 CR is the mini excavator to add to your fleet.

This 1.7-tonne class mini excavator with its compact radius and canopy delivers widths between 990mm and 1300mm, making it ideal for a range of applications, especially in difficult-to-access areas and low-clearance work sites that larger excavators can’t access. While small in size, the Cat 301.7 CR is a powerful machine that can manage a dig depth of up to 2340 mm and an operating weight of up to 1,915kg, making it a highly versatile mini excavator that can be used across a wide range of digging, filling, grading and backfilling tasks.  

As a Cat mini excavator, operator comfort and safety have been prioritised with the new Cat 301.7 CR, which features fully-certified ROPS, TOPS and Top Guard and skid steer control to give your operators more control for less effort — easily switch from traditional travel controls with levers and pedals to joystick controls with a push of a button. Further operator and comfort features include the Next Generation LCD screen for easy-to-read critical machine info, adjustable wrist rests, tie-down points on track frames, fluoro operator seat belt and extra work lights. 

The Cat 301.7 CR is the third size in Cat’s Next Generation mini excavator class, which includes the Cat 301.5, Cat 301.6, Cat 301.8 and Cat 302 CR, all of which are in stock at Hastings Deering branches across Queensland and Northern Territory. When you’re ready to trial the Cat 301.7 CR or learn more about its features and pricing and purchasing options, contact your local Hastings Deering branch and speak with a Cat specialist.
