Features & Benefits

Electronic Standardized Programmable (ESP)

The Cat Electronic Standardized Programmable (ESP) pump smoothly transitions between the hydraulic hybrid power sources, engine, and accumulator to conserve fuel.

Adaptive Control System (ACS)

The Cat Adaptive Control System (ACS) valve optimizes performance by intelligently managing restrictions and flows to control machine motion.


LINK technologies like Product Link are deeply integrated into your machine and wirelessly communicate key information, including location, hours, fuel usage, idle time, and event codes.


Payload technologies accurately measure material being loaded or hauled. Payload data is shared with operators in real time to improve productivity, reduce overloading, and record progress.

Cat C9.3 ACERT U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final engine

The Cat C9.3 ACERT U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final engine is built to meet your demanding needs all day long. There is no interruption to your job process because the Cat regeneration system works automatically with no operator intervention required.


The 336F XE features three power modes to help manage fuel consumption: high power, standard power, and economy. Two additional fuel-saving features are on-demand engine power and engine idle shutdown.


The 336F XE runs on ultra low sulfur diesel fuel, but you have added flexibility with the C9.3 ACERT engine because it’s equipped to run on biodiesel up to B20 blended with ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel. Just fill it up and go.


The ROPS cab provides you with a safe working environment. It also contributes to your comfort because it’s attached to a reinforced frame with special viscous mounts that limit vibration and unnecessary sound.


Not only can the right and left joystick consoles be physically adjusted to improve your comfort and productivity during the course of a day, but joystick lever gain and swing braking can also be adjusted – right through the monitor.


Several seat options help give you all the comfort you need for a long day of work. Air suspension, heated and air cooled seats are available; all include a reclining back, upper and lower seat slide adjustments, and height and tilt angle adjustments.


You can expect excellent quality, reliability, and durability with the 336F XE. The machine’s lower and upper are built to handle a hard day’s work over and over again.


A wide range of buckets dig everything from top soil to harsh, abrasive material. For finishing and grading work, compact and shallow ditch cleaning buckets fit the need. A Cat compactor prepares the area for the next phase of construction.


A hydraulic hammer equips your machine for breaking rock and prepping trenches. A multi-processor, pulverizer, and shear take your machine into demolition jobs and help process debris for reuse and recycle.

Ground-level access

You can reach most routine maintenance items like fuel and oil filters, fluid taps, and grease points from the safety and convenience of ground level.

Smart design

The high-ambient cooling system features a fuel-saving variable-speed fan and a side-by-side-mounted radiator and oil and air coolers for easy cleaning.


The Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) cab provides you with a safe working environment. It also contributes to your comfort because it’s attached to a reinforced frame with special viscous mounts that limit vibration and unnecessary sound.
