Cat 326F L Hydraulic Excavator

326F L Hydraulic Excavator

Overview

The 326F L is built to keep your production numbers high and your owning and operating costs low. The machine’s C7.1 ACERTâ„¢ engine and state-of-the-art hydraulic system seamlessly work together so you can move tons of material all day long with tremendous speed, precision, and efficiency.

BUILT TO PERFORM
  • The C7.1 engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage IV emission standards, and the diesel particulate filter requires no maintenance.
  • Integrated electronics, fuel, air, and aftertreatment reduce fuel consumption and emissions and extend service intervals.
  • The machine can run on up to B20 biodiesel fuel when blended with ultra-low-sulfur diesel for fuel-saving flexibility.
ONE MACHINE MANY JOBS
  • Utility and finishing work are fast and flawless with a Cat® compactor, thumb, finishing bucket or tilt bucket.
  • Demolition work is easy with a Cat hammer, grapple, shear, or multi-processor.
  • Couplers let you swap between attachments in seconds without leaving the cab.
EFFICIENCY THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
  • Product Link™/VisionLink® connects owners to their equipment, providing access to machine location, hours, fuel consumption, idle time, events, and diagnostic codes.
  • Cat Grade Control Depth and Slope helps operators work more productively and accurately with less rework.
SAVE MAINTENANCE TIME
  • Routine maintenance items like grease points and fluid taps are reachable at ground level.
  • The service door design helps prevent debris entry, and doors latch in place to enhance ease of service.
  • The cooling system adjusts to make maintenance easy.
WORK IN COMFORT
  • The full-size roll-over protective structure (ROPS) certified cab is quiet and comfortable.
  • Automatic climate control helps maintain consistent cab temperature.
  • Joystick consoles and armrests are adjustable.
  • Seats are adjustable and feature air suspension and heated and cooled options.
HEAVY DUTY CONSTRUCTION
  • The large swing bearing is secured with elongated bolts to help handle the most swing-intensive work.
  • Abrasion-resistant Cat XT™-6 hose can stand up to high pressures over the long haul.
  • Booms and sticks are built for long service.
  • Box-section structures with multi-plate fabrications, castings, and forgings are used in high-stress areas.

  • The machine can run on up to B20 biodiesel fuel when blended with ultra-low-sulfur diesel for fuel-saving flexibility.
  • Three power modes – high, standard, and eco – help manage fuel consumption.
  • Automatic engine speed control lowers rpm based on load for reduced fuel consumption.
  • Smooth multi-function control is built in for easy operation.
  • The Heavy Lift mode increases maximum pressure, reducing engine speed and pump flow to improve controllability.
  • The emissions package works behind the scenes and won't interrupt the job process.
