Showcasing the new Cat 320 Next Generation excavator with integrated technology
With a wealth of technology solutions and live demonstrations, Finning UK & Ireland say this year’s show will be all about Software, Hardware, Everywhere.
On stand Z5 there will be a Cat D6T LGCP 3D dozer, a Cat 745 three-axle articulated dumptruck and the brand-new Cat 320 Next Generation excavator, which features integrated Cat Connect technology.
The Next Generation excavators are Caterpillar’s most advanced machines yet, with the integrated technology providing 45% higher productivity. In addition, the Cat 320 has smart engine controls that reduce fuel usage by up to 25% and are as much as 15% cheaper to maintain than standard equipment.
Finning’s technology partners SITECH UK & Ireland will also be on stand Z5, demonstrating their Trimble 2D and 3D grade-control software, alongside RedBird’s aerial survey drones.
Tim Ferwerda, Finning UK & Ireland’s sales and marketing director, said: ‘We’re particularly excited about Hillhead this year; not only are we looking forward to introducing the UK market to the Next Generation excavator range, but we’re keen to demonstrate further developments in our technology-driven solutions. We’ve also continued to invest in our retail offering, which includes initiatives such as Ready2Go for smaller kit such as the Cat 308E2.
‘Visitors to the stand will be able to speak to our experts and engineers to learn more about our smart solutions that aid productivity, efficiency and performance. We can assure you that we’re taking ‘connectivity’ to new heights in 2018!’
