Caterpillar 320 Hydraulic Excavator
The 320 has two different engine configurations: a Cat 3116 or 3066. Both are turbocharged diesel engines producing 128 flywheel horsepower (FWHP). It comes standard with a variable flow hydraulic system with a power and work mode selector, pilot activated control, horsepower summation control, a high level of operator comfort, large cross-section design for the boom and stick, a modified X-shaped carbody, increased stick and bucket pressure, and increased pressure in the travel circuit. It is available with a standard, narrow or long undercarriage.
Standard undercarriage units were manufactured in Japan, with a 3XM, 7GJ, 7WK, or 8LK serial number prefix; in Belgium, with a 4ZJ prefix; and in Indonesia, with an 8HL prefix.
Narrow undercarriage units were manufactured in Japan, with a 1XM prefix; and in Belgium, with a 6KM or 9WG prefix.
Long undercarriage units were manufactured in Japan, with a 1KL, 1TL, 2DL, 4BK, 4JM, 8HJ, or 9KK prefix; and in Belgium, with a 3XK prefix. All long undercarriage units have a large lifting capacity.
The 1KL, 8LK, and 9KK units have in-line mounted pumps.
The 3XM, 7WK, 8LK, and 9KK units have modified cabs.
