Cat Excavators:

390F L Hydraulic Excavator

Engine Model
Cat® C18 ACERT™
Net Flywheel Power
524.0 hp
Operating Weight
190204.0 lb
Maximum Travel Speed
2.8 mph

The 390F is built to give you the highest production with the lowest owning and operating costs in its size class. Not only does the machine’s C18 ACERT engine meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards, but it does so with all the power, efficiency, and reliability you need to succeed. Where the real power comes in is through the advanced hydraulic system and the new Adaptive Control System (ACS) valve. You can literally move tons of material all day long with a great deal of speed, precision, and efficiency. In fact, the 390F’s ACS valve and engine work together to increase production and significantly decrease fuel consumption compared to our 390D model. That means more work per unit of fuel for you. That’s fuel efficiency. 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, more productive, more fuel-efficient machine in this size class.
