Cat Excavators:

374F L Hydraulic Excavator

Engine Model
Cat® C15 ACERT™
Net Flywheel Power
472 hp
Operating Weight
165721 lb
Maximum Travel Speed
2.6 mph

The 374F is built to keep your production numbers up and your owning and operating costs down. Not only does the machine’s C15 ACERT engine meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage IV and Korea Tier 4 emission standards, but it does so while giving you all the power, fuel efficiency, and reliability you need to succeed. Where the real power comes in is through advanced hydraulics and the new Adaptive Control System (ACS) valve. The ACS valve and other integrated components allow you to move tons of material all day long with a great deal of speed, precision, and efficiency. In fact, the hydraulic system and engine team together to keep fuel consumption to an absolute minimum – with zero impact on your productivity. When you add in a quiet operator environment that keeps you comfortable and productive, service points that make your routine maintenance quick and easy, and multiple Cat work tools that help you do a number of jobs very well, you simply won’t find a better machine in this size class.
