by - April 14, 2018

With our country in a very sound macroeconomic growth, the construction industry among others is also in golden stage to contribute more in nation building. And in this sound environment that Monark Equipment Corporation, the official dealer and importer of Caterpillar machines to the Philippines, in its help toward nation building, recently launched its newest ground-breaking offerings: The Next Generation Cat Excavators 320 and 320GC.

Specifically, the 320 excavator boasts the industry’s highest level of standard factory-equipped technology to boost productivity, efficiency and safety. These excavators aim to help various industries in the Philippines who depend on heavy equipment, such as excavators, for their projects and daily production.

For over 30 years, Monark Equipment has been contributing in nation-building by catering to the equipment needs and as a world-class solutions and service provider for various industries such as manufacturing, power, construction, mining and agriculture in the country. In fact, Monark played a vital role in the completion of major power plant and dam projects in the Philippines such as; Pantabangan Dam, Magat Dam, Bataan Nuclear Power Plant, Makban Geothermal and Masiway Hydroelectric Power Plant, and among many others.

At present, Monark is widely known as a company that delivers world-class quality products and services. They put their customers first and renowned for their continuous innovations in order to provide equipment and services that can make work easier, smarter, and safer.

And for them to have a better understanding and appreciation of this new equipment’s features and its capacity to “do more with less’, here’s a list of some key features packed in The Next Generation Cat Excavators 320.

Cat 2D Grade with Assist. These smart excavators are equipped with Cat 2D Grade with Assist Technology which offers precision and automation in achieving target depth, slope and horizontal distance to grade. It also helps operators to reach its desired grade quickly and efficiently without the need for stakes and job inspectors. The Bucket and Boom Assist automates boom, stick and bucket movements, so operators stay on grade simply and effortlessly.

Cat E-fence Technology. The equipment’s E-fence feature is programmed using an advance on-board touch display inside the operator’s cabin. The technology enables the machine to work safely under confined structures such as working in between building walls, under electric posts or even on highways near moving vehicles by preventing any part of the excavator from moving outside the operator’s defined working space.

Cat Payload Technology. Cat Payload offers real-time on-board weighing, integrated on the Cat 320 at the factory. The technology delivers precise load targets and increased loading efficiency with on-the-go weighing and real-time payload measurements thus increasing the operator’s efficiency and eliminating costly repairs or breakdown of dump trucks due to overloading.

Cat LINK Technology. Cat LINK connects the jobsites to the office thus providing customers with real-time equipment operating information such as current location, fuel consumption, working hours, alerts for critical-fault codes for efficient and effective equipment maintenance.

Smart mode. The new Smart mode operation automatically matches engine and hydraulic power to digging conditions, optimizing both fuel consumption and performance. Engine speed is automatically lowered when there is no hydraulic demand to further reduce fuel usage, which obviously equates to more savings for the company.

New Cooling system. More efficient than single-fan systems, the new cooling system employs multiple electric fans, which independently monitor hydraulic oil, radiator and air-to-air after cooler temperatures to deliver the exact airflow required.

Improved Filters. Featuring higher dirt capacity, the new Cat hydraulic return filter boasts a 3,000-hour service life, a 50 percent increase over previous filters. A new Cat air filter with integrated pre-cleaner and primary and secondary filters extends service life to 1,000 hours, a 100 percent increase over previous designs, while a new fuel tank cap filter extends service life to 2,000 hours. The three fuel system filters each offer a 500-hour service interval. Ali daily maintenance checks for engine oil, fuel water separator, fuel tank water and sediment, and cooling system level are performed from ground level, making the routine faster, easier and safer. Consolidated filter locations also reduce service time.

In addition, the Next Generation Excavators are also equipped with standard features like keyless push-button start, large standard 203-mm touch screen monitor with jog dial keys for control and sound-suppressed rollover protective structures (ROPS) to offer the next level of operator comfort, safety and quiet operation.
Given all these features, the Cat 320 is expected to be the next big thing for Nation-building. Companies in general construction, mining, quarrying and agriculture can now use the equipment and experience its unique features that were made to do work more efficiently and productively. It will also help operators to deliver more work with fewer resources in terms of time, money and labor force spent. This revolutionary equipment is sure to positively impact your business and contribute greatly to continuous growth of the Philippines.
