New Cat 323 Cab

NEW CAB TAKES THE HARD OUT OF WORK
Sites where excavators typically work are rugged and challenging. That’s why it’s important that the new 323 cab protects the operator as much as possible from fatigue, stresses, sounds and temperatures of the job.

NEW SEAT AND JOYSTICK CONSOLE REDUCE FATIGUE
Comfort and efficiency of movement keep operators productive and alert all shift long. The new standard seat is wide and adjustable for operators of virtually any size. The Deluxe cab package includes a heated air suspension seat; the Premium seat is both heated and cooled.

ISO-CERTIFIED ROPS CAB 
The ISO-certified ROPS cab is sound suppressed and sealed. The windows and lower front profile of the machine give outstanding visibility to the work area without the strain of constantly leaning forward.
ALL-AROUND VISIBILITY 
A standard rearview camera keeps operators aware of their surroundings at all times. An optional 360° Visibility feature is also available.
EASY ACCESS, CONNECTIVITY AND STORAGE 
Convenience features include Bluetooth® integrated radio, USB ports for charging and phone connectivity, 12V DC outlets and AUX port, storage in rear, overhead and console compartments, and cup and bottle holders.

SAFETY FEATURES

Cat 323 Safety

LOOK OUT FOR YOUR PEOPLE AND YOUR EQUIPMENT
Daily maintenance checks can be performed with 100% of the points accessible from ground level, making maintenance faster, easier and safer. Checkpoints include the engine oil dipstick, fuel water separator, fuel tank water and sediment drains, and cooling system coolant level check.

KEEP YOUR EXCAVATOR SECURE
Use your PIN code on the monitor, the optional Bluetooth key fob or your smartphone to enable the push-button starting feature.

STANDARD 2D E-FENCE TECHNOLOGY
The standard 2D E-fence feature automatically stops excavator motion using boundaries you set in the monitor for the entire working envelope—above, below, sides and front. E-fence features protect equipment from damage and reduce fines related to zoning or underground utility damage. Automatic boundaries even help prevent operator fatigue by reducing over-swinging and over-digging.
