Reliable, Durable Performance

  • The redesigned 313 GC allows you to be up to 5% more productive than with the previous 313D2 GC model.
  • The C3.6 engine and electrohydraulic system work in sync to help you move loads of material without burning excessive fuel, and meets China Nonroad Stage III emission standards, equivalent to U.S. EPA Tier 3 and EU Stage IIA.
  • The main hydraulic pump is electronically controlled and provides more fluid flow than the previous model, improving control and productivity.
  • Breakout force is increased and a redesigned swing drive gives you improved swing torque and smoothness, maximizing your productivity.
  • Undercarriage and track design balances performance and stability.
  • Boom, stick, and bucket linkage are enhanced to ensure maximum durability.
  • A hammer-ready valve is standard for added versatility.

Low Owning and Operating Costs

  • Match the power to the job with three working modes: Smart for power automatically adjusted to demand, Eco for lowest fuel burn, and Power for highest productivity.
  • The 313GC is designed for easier and less expensive maintenance, lowering costs up to 20%.
  • Hydraulic and air filters have increased service life, while the pilot and case drain filters have been eliminated.
  • Routine maintenance can be performed from ground level, decreasing the amount of time you spend on daily tasks.
  • Swing drive operates on the hydraulic system, eliminating the need to check or refill a separate oil system.
  • Both the hydraulic and engine oil refill amounts have been reduced with no change in performance or service life.
  • When hydraulic demand is low, the Automatic Engine Control (AEC) system reduces RPM, lowering your fuel costs.
  • Cat Product Link™ comes standard so you can remotely monitor fuel consumption, machine health, location, and hours on demand through VisionLink®.

Simple to Operate

  • Start the engine with a pushbutton.  
  • One-button sticks (with adjustable joystick response and gain) make control easy for any operator.   
  • Navigate quickly through simplified control menus on the high-resolution 203 mm (8 in) touchscreen monitor.
  • Easily move soft, wet, and sticky material with a new, optional shallow profile bucket.
  • Cat continues to improve user interface functionality for operators of all skill levels. The touchscreen monitor is an easy-to-use operating tool that presents the jobsite dashboard with an intuitive format. Productivity applications are displayed in grid-view to read on-the-go, and touchscreen navigation is programmed to make sure job performance continues without any hold ups.

Work in Comfort

  • Wide seat (larger than previous models) adjusts for operators of all sizes.
  • Standard automatic climate control keeps you at the right temperature all shift long.
  • Convenience features include a radio, headphone port, and a USB port for connecting and charging devices.
  • Cup holder and storage space in front of the controls can hold large cups and wide cell phones; storage behind the seat can hold a hard hat, large lunchbox, and other items.

Easy to Maintain

  • Nearly all major mechanical components are accessed from the ground or the service platform.
  • Radiator screens can be removed easily, are simple to clean, and keep the radiators free of small debris that can be difficult to remove, such as grass clippings.
  • Engine compartment is easily accessed from the service platform; fluid caps and gauges are easily reached, and an automatic tensioner ensures you will never need to make belt adjustments.
  • Cat technology helps you monitor your machine, and the Caterpillar service network helps you maximize uptime.

Enhanced Safety

  • Access daily maintenance points from ground level – no climbing necessary.
  • Emergency engine and electrical shut-offs are also at ground level.
  • Handrails meet ISO 2867:2011 requirements; steps and platforms use anti-skid plates with countersunk bolts to prevent slipping and tripping.
  • Operator can exit in an emergency through either the rear window or the steel top hatch.
  • New cab has larger windows and smaller cab posts, providing excellent visibility into the trench and in every direction.
  • Bright exterior LED lights and an optional rearview camera ensure you have total visibility on the jobsite.
  • Enhance jobsite safety. Add a swing alarm to alert people when you're rotating from trench to stockpile and back again.
