Overview

The 326F is built to keep your production numbers high and your owning and operating costs low. The machine’s C7.1 ACERT engine not only meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards, but it does so with all the power, fuel efficiency, and reliability you need to be successful. Where the real power comes in is through Caterpillar’s unparalleled systems integration and state-of-the-art hydraulic system. You can literally move tons of material all day long with tremendous speed and precision. When you add a quiet operator environment that keeps you comfortable and productive, easy-to-reach service points that make routine maintenance simple and fast, and multiple Cat work tools that help you take on a variety of tasks with just one machine, you simply won’t find a better, more efficient 26-ton excavator. If productivity, comfort, versatility, and fuel efficiency are what you want, you need a 326F in your fleet.
