CAT 325 Excavator

The CAT 325 Excavator is a powerful and versatile piece of heavy equipment commonly used in construction, demolition, and mining operations. With a standard digging depth of 22 feet and a standard digging reach of 31 feet, this excavator is capable of handling a wide range of tasks.

One of the most common uses of the CAT 325 Excavator is in digging and excavation. The machine is equipped with a powerful hydraulic arm and bucket, allowing it to easily dig into the earth and remove large amounts of dirt and rock. This makes it ideal for tasks such as trenching, grading, and foundation digging. The excavator’s cab also rotates 360 degree which gives great flexibility to the operator.

In addition to digging and excavation, the CAT 325 Excavator is also commonly used for demolition work. Its hydraulic arm and bucket can be used to tear down buildings, bridges, and other structures. The excavator’s ability to rotate its cab also gives it the ability to reach tight spaces and hard to reach areas with ease.

The CAT 325 Excavator is also equipped with a number of features that make it more efficient and easy to operate. For example, it is equipped with a control system that allows the operator to control the speed and power of the machine’s movement, as well as the movement of the arm and bucket. The operator cab also provides a comfortable and ergonomic space for the operator, which can be equipped with air conditioning, heating, and even a radio.
