The new Cat 313FL is being heralded as a big excavator in a little body – able to prepare sites or carry out utility or services work.

The new Caterpillar 313FL hydraulic excavator is designed to be versatile, reliable and durable

Weighing in at 13.5 tonnes and fitted with a powerful and efficient Cat C4.4 engine, the Cat 313FL delivers ground-breaking power with control like no other.

Brett Lenz, hydraulic excavators sales manager for local distributor Hastings Deering, says the new 313FL provides excellent breakout and performance to the operator when they need it.

"It’s the complete package. Coming standard with high pressure and medium pressure auxiliary lines from the factory, the 313FL provides all the flexibility needed on site," he says.

With a long undercarriage on a robust frame and a 4.65m boom and 2.5m stick, the 313FL is reinforced with thick, multi-plate fabrications, castings and forgings to ensure the machine can cope in high stress areas and is able to withstand all conditions.

The spacious ROPS cabin comes with climate control air-conditioning and a comfortable air suspension seat to ensure operators are comfortable and can maximise productivity while in this machine.

With advanced controls for maximum efficiency and performance, the Cat 313FL Hydraulic Excavator is a versatile, reliable and durable machine.

Lenz says that while the world is going through difficult times, Hastings Deering is working to ensure that they’re able to take the pressure off customers that need to keep up with demand.

"We’re offering no repayments for 3 months on a new Cat 313FL," he says.

"This comes with our ‘Go To Work Pack’, a Cat Quick Hitch and Cat 600mm GD Bucket, so you’re ready to go straight to work."

With a starting price of $180,000 + GST, Lenz adds that customers will also be able to take advantage of the Federal Government’s ‘Backing Business Investment Program (BBI),’ which applies to eligible assets acquired and first used or installed by June 30, 2021.

In March, the Government introduced a time limited 15-month investment incentive to support business investment and economic growth over the short-term, by accelerating depreciation deductions.

"What this BBI program means is that for any new machinery, over the value of $150,000, customers are able to potentially apply higher accelerated depreciation to their new asset," Lenz says.

"This is an attractive offer from the Government, and one that we believe our customers can really benefit from."

"We encourage them to speak to their accountants on how they can take advantage of the program." Lenz says.
