Machinery Insights: A Look at the Large CAT 395 Excavator

When you're on the job site, the need for heavy machinery that can handle the toughest tasks is paramount. That's where the CAT 395 excavator steps in, introduced by Caterpillar in 2022. This 95-tonne powerhouse isn't just a piece of equipment; it's a jobsite game-changer, offering faster cycle times, unmatched power, and extended service intervals. Let’s explore some of the most beneficial features of the CAT 395 excavator in terms of real-life applications.

CAT 395 Redefines Efficiency with 10% More Productivity

When you're in the business of moving mountains of material, productivity is king. The CAT 395 excavator takes this to heart, offering up to 10% more productivity compared to its predecessor, the 395F. With increased power and larger buckets, you can move more material, faster. It's the kind of productivity boost that construction professionals need.

Built to Last with 2x More Structural Durability

Demands on the construction site are relentless, and the CAT 395 is more than up for the challenge. With twice the structural durability of the 395F, it's designed to take on more demanding work. Reinforced booms, sticks, and upper and lower frames ensure that this excavator can withstand the toughest conditions, making it a reliable partner for even the most rugged projects.

Saving Time and Money with 20% Less Maintenance Costs

In the construction world, time is money, and the CAT 395 excavator respects that. With extended service intervals and a significant reduction in maintenance costs (up to 20% less), this machine keeps you working efficiently. You'll save both time and money by using less oil and benefiting from improved filters. It's the kind of cost-efficiency that makes a difference on your bottom line.

In comparison to its predecessor, the CAT 395 significantly reduces maintenance needs. It requires only seven oil barrels instead of twelve over the course of 12,000 hours service intervals, with filter requirements dropping from 180 to 104. This means more time working and less time on maintenance, translating to substantial cost savings.
