M316C Caterpillar excavator


CODIMATRA receives today a renowned excavator : The M316C Caterpillar. This 16-ton machine is equipped with a ripper tooth, and formerly worked in a limestone quarry.
Our M316C Caterpillar excavator will soon be dismantled by us. After a thorough cleaning, his organs will be tested and reconditioned as necessary, in our workshops.

M316C a excavator that has it all

With its compact size, this Caterpillar excavator appreciate small spaces. This model with a particular short orientation radius allows access to areas where a 16 tons classical excavator would not pass. However, its small size contains a 3056E ATAAC 6-cylinder engine, delivering 145 horsepower. A power adapted to its radius of action, but not skipping over the current emission regulations.

This hydraulic excavator offers great stability thanks to its wide dozer blade. It has two front outriggers and a rear blade to a higher breakout force. In addition, the two stabilizers can be controlled individually in order to ensure optimum stabilization in sloped according to the shape of the ground. The blade, although designed for the discharge of loosened material, also serves to stabilize the machine and limit the pressure on the ground (it can be assembled at the front or rear of the machine).

The hydraulic system of our Caterpillar M316C required a lot of Caterpillar engineers to reduce hose lengths and organ size. That is for the entire circuit fits into the upper frame of the machine. Thanks to a main hydraulic pump “load sensing” with high capacity, it allows fast cycle times to achieve maximum productivity and optimal profitability.

Our M316C just went out mines
