Cat 320 GX offers a unique combination of tailor-made features designed to match customer productivity and cost targets. The excavator is suitable for work in the construction, forestry, agribusiness and other industries.

The 20.5 tons hydraulic excavator features a 0.9 cubic meter general duty bucket that is optimal for most machine applications. Powered by a 4-cylinder engine Cat C4.4 with 145 horsepower which is strong, tough and field tested, making the Cat 320 GX even more fuel efficient. The engine is also environmentally friendly because it is ready to use biodiesel, both B30 and above. The combination of high productivity with low fuel consumption, low maintenance costs and low purchase prices has become the hallmark of Cat 320 GX and it will help quickly return the customers' investment.

Reliable products, competent technicians, advanced facilities and after-sales service in more than 60 locations in Indonesia, make Trakindo ready to help customers advance their business anywhere and anytime.
Desman Parulian Tambunan, Product Manager of Trakindo explained, “The Cat 320 GX is able to save fuel up to 15% compared to the previous model. This improvement resulted in an electronically controlled valve to direct power to the hydraulic right target, thus saving fuel. We also provide a Fuel Savings Guarantee Program, the average fuel consumption of Cat 320 GX is 12 liters per hour*, meaning that if there is an excess, Trakindo will replace the difference*.”

There are two optional modes in Cat 320 GX — Power and Smart — which help operators in managing fuel consumption. Power mode is a traditional setting in which the operator can manually increase or decrease power. Smart Mode works by automatically adjusting the power for various workloads; maximum power for difficult digging, and lower for lighter loading, resulting in higher operating efficiency without compromising performance.
Another plus point is the maintenance cost, which can be lower by up to 20% than its predecessors. The filter change interval is extended by increasing the life of the fuel filter to 1,000 hours, hydraulic filter to 3,000 hours, and air filter to 1,000 hours. Regular maintenance is also easier because Cat 320 GX is designed with access to ground level maintenance.
Cat 320 GX equipment management is also made easy with remote monitoring through an embedded Cat Product Link which can be accessed via satellite network. With Product Link, users can monitor various information regarding the heavy equipment remotely; starting from the equipment’s location, operating conditions, duration of work, average fuel consumption, maintenance schedule, as well as error code information by accessing my.cat.com.
Cat 320 GX will be officially launched in various regions in Indonesia; starting on October 14 for the Sumatra area, October 21 for the East Indonesia area, November 4 in the South Kalimantan area, November 11 in the North Kalimantan area, and, lastly, Java area on November 18.
