New Caterpillar compact excavator lowers maintenance costs by up to 25 percentadmin
Extended and more synchronized maintenance intervals on the new 315 GC excavator reduces maintenance costs by up to 25 percent compared to the 315F. Its new hydraulic oil filter delivers improved filtration and extends filter change intervals to 3,000 operating hours, a 50 percent increase. New anti-drain valves keep the hydraulic oil clean during filter replacement to improve system longevity.
Operators conveniently track filter life and maintenance intervals on the in-cab LCD monitor. All daily maintenance checkpoints, including oil, are easily accessible from ground-level, increasing machine uptime availability. A second engine oil dipstick offers service techs the additional convenience of checking and filling the oil at the top of the excavator. For quick and easy fluid extraction, all Cat S·O·S SM ports are quickly accessed from ground level for easy fluid sample extraction for analysis.
