Caterpillar announces it is entering the railway-construction/maintenance industry through the development of a Railroad Wheeled Excavator. A prototype was displayed in Hall B6 at bauma 2016 in Munich. The excavator will be available for Germany, France and the United Kingdom.
As the design process for the Cat M323F railroad excavator progresses, Caterpillar continues to solicit the guidance of experts in the railway construction/maintenance industry—those who use these machines on a day-to-day basis and know first-hand what characteristics are necessary for optimum performance, efficiency, safety and reliability in this highly specialized sector. The M323F will comply with the strict EN15746 European railway standard and add further customer value with exceptional on-track stability, low operating costs, simplicity of operation, ease of maintenance and a comfortable, secure operator's station.
