Variable angle boom configuration allows the 308E2 to work closer to the blade and tracks for added lift capacity in confined areas.
Variable angle boom configuration allows the 308E2 to work closer to the blade and tracks for added lift capacity in confined areas.

The Cat 308E2 mini hydraulic excavator is now available in a variable-angle-boom (VAB) configuration that provides an expanded working envelope and increased application flexibility. While providing a maximum dig depth of 169 inches (4,290 mm), the VAB extends the 308E2’s maximum reach by 30 inches (760 mm) to a total of 306 inches (7,780 mm), compared with the standard boom-and-stick configuration; dump clearance is extended by 56 inches (1 410 mm) to 239 inches (6,080 mm). In addition, the VAB allows the 308E2 to work closer to the blade and tracks, resulting in added lift capacity when working in confined areas.
