More power and stability help Cat's 50-tonne excavator work well with larger attachments

Increased power and a heavier counterweight are central features of the new Caterpillar 352 hydraulic excavator. These updates provide the excavator with the ability to work with larger work tools. The 352 is a 50-tonne excavator that, depending on the configuration, has a maximum digging depth of up to 8,210 mm and a maximum reach at ground of 12,150 mm. It offers fixed or variable gauge undercarriage options. Variable gauge allows the undercarriage to retract to 2,390 mm for easier transportation, and when expanded offers greater stability than the fixed gauge option.
