Heavy Machine Of The Year

Caterpillar 374FL Excavator

The Cat 374FL has proven to be the standout performer in its class.

Built with the understanding that production and fuel efficiency are the key drivers in this size, Caterpillar developed a machine that keeps customers production numbers up and their owning and operating costs down.

The combination of an efficient Cat C15 engine and a powerful hydraulic system ensures our customers get the most out of each litre of fuel they use.

The whole machine has been designed around long-term production with box section structures having multi plate fabrications, whilst castings and forgings are used in high-stress areas to ensure durability.

Our booms and sticks are built for long term service and our greased track link increases our undercarriage life. Operators regularly comment how quick and powerful the 374FL is and the proof is in the dirt they can move!

When fitted with a 5m3 bucket, the 374FL can move dirt all day with speed, precision, and efficiency like nothing else and the quiet operator environment keeps the operator comfortable and productive. There isn’t a better machine in this class!

We are excited about the launch of the new 374 in 2021 as this will take performance and production to new levels. It will prove to the world that if you are serious about moving dirt and doing it efficiently, then the 374 is your machine!
