If you are looking for a compact, productive, and fuel-efficient 14 metric ton machine, you will find it in the all new 314E L CR OEM. Built to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4 Interim emission standards, European Union Stage IIIB emission standards, and Japan MLIT Step 4 emission standards, the 314E L CR OEM makes an excellent choice for people who need a well-balanced and versatile utility machine. In fact, this new model comes equipped with several new features and benefits that will please both you and your operators.
You can have flexibility and peace of mind in tight quarters.
If your work space is restricted, the 314E L CR makes an ideal choice because it can get up close to new residential construction, buildings, fences, hillsides, or any other “crowded” environment with ease. During the entire 360 swing the counterweight will never protrude beyond the length of the undercarriage. This significantly reduces the risk of your operator damaging the machine and surrounding structures in full swing, which makes for a safer work environment and lower owning and operating costs for your business.
You can count on reduced emissions, economical and reliable performance.
The Cat C4.4 ACERT engine is built to meet your demanding needs all day every day. There is no interruption to your job process as our new regeneration system works automatically with no operator intervention required.
The 314E L CR features two power modes: High power mode is when you need maximum production; economy mode is when you need to balance performance with fuel economy. Two additional fuel-saving features are on demand engine power and engine idle shutdown. On demand engine power keeps speed low during light loading and idling and automatically adjusts speed up when it senses a heavier load; engine idle shutdown automatically shuts the engine off when it’s been idling for more than a specified amount of time that you set, which can save you significant amounts of fuel, reduce your emissions, and even reduce your accumulated service hours, which will extend service intervals and improve re-sale value.
Biodiesel-Ready Fuel System
The C4.4 ACERT engine runs on ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel, and you have added flexibility of running on B20 biodiesel fuel that meets ASTM 6751 standards. Just fill it up and go.
You can move dirt, rock, and debris with speed, precision, and efficiency.
One of the biggest contributors to your productivity and fuel savings is a well-designed hydraulic system, and this is where Cat excavators stand apart. The 314E L CR is loaded with several unique features that will put more power to the ground with less money out of your pocket.
Pumps and Valves
The main control valve is built to work with any tool, allowing you to take on multiple tasks with one machine. The main pumps are located side by side and are driven directly by the engine for the highest level of efficiency to reduce your fuel costs.
Your operators will enjoy the incredibly quiet and comfortable cab.
The high back with head rest, mechanical suspension seat gives operators all the comfort they need for a long day of work. The seat includes a reclining back, upper and lower seat slide adjustments, and height and tilt angle adjustments.
Your operators can adjust the right and left joysticks for individual preferences, helping the operator become more comfortable, more productive, and more alert.
Power Supply and Auxiliary Audio Port
To keep your operators happy, comfortable and connected, one 12-volt power supply is located on the radio near key storage areas for charging electronic devices such as an MP3 player and cell phone. An auxiliary port allows your operators to plug and play MP3 audio through the cab’s speakers.
Your operators have storage spaces located in the rear. A dedicated space near the auxiliary power supply will hold an MP3 player and cell phone. The drink holder accommodates large mugs with handles, and a shelf behind the seat stores large lunch or toolboxes.
Your operators can keep safely focused on the job at hand with a high-resolution LCD monitor that is programmable in 42 languages to support today’s diverse workforce. It also projects the image from an available rearview camera, further enhancing the safety and productivity of your job site.
Automatic Climate Control
An automatic climate control system features seven air outlets with filtered ventilation to make your operators comfortable in either hot or cold climates.
Structures & Optional Undercarriage
You can take on a variety of tough tasks with this built-to-last machine.
You can expect excellent quality, reliability, and durability with the 314E L CR’s reinforced lower and upper frames. Both are built to handle a hard day’s work over and over again. The upper frame includes reinforced mountings to support the Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) cab; the lower frame is reinforced to increase component durability.
Long undercarriage supports any type of work you can do with a 14 metric ton machine. The track rollers are a double solid-pin-type design to improve reliability; the bottom guard helps maintain track alignment and improves the machine’s overall performance.
A 3.56 mt (3.9 t) heavy counterweight for long undercarriage matches your machine to the task at hand, whether it’s doing light trenching or heavy lifting. With integrated links, you can also easily - and safely - remove the counterweight for maintenance or shipping.
You can depend on safe, fast, and easy access.
Your service technicians have ground-level access to the radiator, pump, and air cleaner compartments through wide service doors, making it easy for them to reach, check, and replace fluids and filters.
The cooling package features an improved oil cooler and engine radiator design mounted side by side and the air-to-air aftercooler and A/C condenser mounted in front. The radiator uses an aluminum square wave fin to prevent clogging with the other components positioned to make cleaning cores easier - a major service convenience.
Other Service Benefits
The engine oil dipstick is conveniently located in the front of the engine compartment. The fuel tank’s remote drain cock makes it easy and simple to remove water and sediment during routine maintenance. Overfilling the fuel tank is significantly reduced with an integrated fuel level indicator.
Several built-in features will help protect your people.
Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) Cab
Your operators will benefit from the protection of a ROPS-certified cab. It is also built to accommodate a Falling Object Guard Structure (FOGS) for industrial applications.
Roof lining and sealing make your operator’s sound experience inside the cab comparable to any of today’s top pickup trucks.
Your operator and service technicians’ slipping hazards are reduced with anti-skid plates on the surface of the upper structure and the top of the storage box area.
Steps, Hand and Guard Rails
Your service technicians can work securely on the machine with extended hand and guardrails to the upper deck and steps on the track frame and storage box.
Time Delay Lights
The cab and boom lights can be programmed to stay on for up to 90 seconds after the engine has been turned off to help your operators safely exit the machine.
You can easily store both the upper and lower window in cab. You also have great overhead visibility and lighting with a large skylight.
