Features & Information

  • Emissions and Engine Technology.  The Cat C13 engine can run on biodiesel up349-400px to B20 and meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, Japan 2014, and Korea Tier 4 Final emission standards.  Match the 349 excavator to the job with three power modes – Power, Smart, and Eco.  Smart mode automatically matches engine and hydraulic power to digging conditions, providing max power when needed and reducing power when it isn’t to help save fuel.
  • Lower Maintenance Costs Up To 20%.   With extended maintenance intervals, you get more done at a lower cost compared to the 349F. Consolidated filter locations make service faster. Hydraulic, air, and fuel tank filters have increased capacity and longer life.
  • Protection in All Directions.  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 overswinging and digging.
