313 GC Hydraulic Excavator

313 GC Hydraulic Excavator

Overview

The Cat® 313 GC excavator matches its performance to your job. A new, larger cab with an ergonomic layout keeps you comfortable all shift long. Combined with fuel-saving features, longer maintenance intervals, and simplified maintenance points, the 313 GC provides the reliability you expect at the low-cost-per-hour you need.

Fuel Saving Performance Matched to the Job
  • Use up to 10 percent less fuel than the 313F GC to keep you moving and productive on the jobsite.
  • Easily work on slopes and move around the jobsite with 10 percent more swing torque.
  • The advanced hydraulic system provides the optimum balance of power and efficiency while providing the control needed for precise digging requirements.
Lower Maintenance Costs
  • Expect up to 25 percent less maintenances costs than the 313F GC.
  • Quickly check and service your machine with all daily maintenance points accessible from ground level.
  • Check the engine oil level quickly and safely from the ground. Fill and check engine oil on top of the machine with a conveniently located second dipstick.
Work in Comfort in the All-New Cab
  • Increase operator productivity with an all-new, larger cab.
  • The cab has a wide seat that adjusts for operators of all sizes.
  • Advanced viscous mounts reduce cab vibration.
  • Control the excavator comfortably with easy-to-reach controls all located in front of you.
  • Stow your gear with plenty of in-cab storage beneath and behind the seat, overhead, and in the consoles.
Reliable, Whatever the Environment
  • Don’t let the temperature stop you from working. The 313 GC has a standard high-ambient temperature capability of 52° C (125° F) without de-rate and cold-start capability of -18° C (0° F).
  • Auto warm-up speeds up hydraulic oil warming in cold temperatures and helps prolong the life of components.
Simple to Operate
  • Start the engine with the push of a button, a Bluetooth key fob, or the unique Operator ID function.
  • Program your preferred power mode and joystick settings using your operator ID. The excavator will automatically remember your selections.
  • Navigate quickly on the standard high-resolution touchscreen monitor or with the aid of the jog dial control.
Safety
  • Access all daily maintenance points from ground level – no need for you to climb on top of the machine.
  • The standard ROPS cab meets ISO 12117-2:2008 requirements.
  • The standard hydraulic lockout lever isolates all hydraulic and travel functions in the lowered position.
  • A ground-level shut-off switch stops all fuel to the engine and shuts down the machine when activated.
Fuel Saving Performance Matched to the Job
  • Use up to 10 percent less fuel than the 313F GC to keep you moving and productive on the jobsite.
  • Easily work on slopes and move around the jobsite with 10 percent more swing torque.
  • The advanced hydraulic system provides the optimum balance of power and efficiency while providing the control needed for precise digging requirements.
  • Smart mode meets your power needs by automatically matching engine and hydraulic power to digging conditions.
  • Get higher production in demanding applications, easier penetration into piles, and faster cycle times with Cat® Advansys™ bucket tips. Quickly change tips with a simple lug wrench instead of a hammer or special tool, improving safety and uptime.
  • Auxiliary hydraulic options give you the versatility to use a wide range of Cat attachments.
  • The Cat C3.6 engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage V, and Japan 2014 emission standards.

Lower Maintenance Costs
  • Expect up to 25 percent less maintenances costs than the 313F GC.
  • Quickly check and service your machine with all daily maintenance points accessible from ground level.
  • Check the engine oil level quickly and safely from the ground. Fill and check engine oil on top of the machine with a conveniently located second dipstick.
  • The new hydraulic oil filter provides improved filtration performance, anti-drain valves to keep oil clean when the filter is replaced, and longer life with a 3,000-hour replacement interval – 50 percent longer than previous filter designs.
  • The engine does not require diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
  • Track your machine’s filter life and maintenance intervals on the in-cab monitor.
  • S·O·SSM ports are located at ground level, simplifying maintenance and allowing for quick, easy extraction of fluid samples for analysis. yeah
Work in Comfort in the All-New Cab

  • Don’t let the temperature stop you from working. The 313 GC has a standard high-ambient temperature capability of 52° C (125° F) without de-rate and cold-start capability of -18° C (0° F).
  • Auto warm-up speeds up hydraulic oil warming in cold temperatures and helps prolong the life of components.
  • Grease sealed between track pins and bushings reduces travel noise and prevents debris from entering to increase undercarriage life.
  • The track guiding guard helps keep the excavator track aligned when traveling and working on slopes.
  • The sloped track frame prevents mud and debris accumulation, helping reduce the risk of track damage.
Simple to Operate
  • Start the engine with the push of a button, a Bluetooth key fob, or the unique Operator ID function.
  • Program your preferred power mode and joystick settings using your operator ID. The excavator will automatically remember your selections.
