Cat 315D L Excavator
March 31, 2008

Caterpillar offers the 315D L Excavator, a high-performance, easy-to-operate machine that delivers five percent more horsepower and as much as eight percent more lift capacity than the 315C L, which it replaces. Higher hydraulic pressures boost performance and efficiency, and the new 115-horsepower (86-kilowatt) engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 3 emissions regulations and delivers more work per gallon of fuel. A number of new features extend versatility. The machine leaves the factory ready for fast, economical installation of auxiliary hydraulic circuits, making it an ideal choice for users who do many jobs with one machine. The Cat Tool Control System stores hydraulic flow and pressure for as many as 10 different work tools. The 315D L features the same spacious and comfortable cab found on larger Caterpillar excavators. It offers a quiet and well-ventilated place to work, and it comes with a supportive seat, standard air conditioning and low-effort joystick controls.
