You don’t need to buy several tons of steel to get the power and performance you need for your jobsite. Sometimes, the best solution comes in a smaller, yet no less performance-focused package. Delivering the right machine for the job is the mindset behind the lineup of Cat® micro excavators. These compact powerhouses offer the versatility your jobsite needs to run efficiently, on budget and on schedule.

Enhance Your Operating Experience

A better operator experience is necessary for increased operator efficiency. Cat micro excavators come packed with multiple features to streamline your control. Every micro excavator—301.5, 301.7 CR, 301.8 and 302 CR—comes with stick-steer, joystick travel and cruise control to minimize the number of actions needed to get the job done, while reducing operator fatigue. Alongside the best monitor options on the market and customizable operator settings, these machines take care of the tedious tasks so you can focus on the work ahead.

For an even more comfortable experience, the 301.8 and 302 CR come with options for Bluetooth and pressurized, enclosed cabs with A/C.
