Cat Grade Control Depth and Slope
The factory integrated Cat Grade Control system delivers 2D bucket tip elevation guidance to the cab to help operators create precise planes and slopes with ease. Real-time bucket tip elevation guidance on the easy-to-read standard cab monitor indicates how much to cut or fill. Fast response sensors deliver immediate feedback, while optional integrated joystick buttons help operators make quick adjustments to maintain consistent, quality grades. Built-in alerts can be set to warn the operator if the linkage or bucket approaches a predefined elevation or depth, such as when working in areas with low ceilings, or digging near water lines. Staking and checking is minimized, which reduces ground crews and enhances job site safety. Works best in simple 2D applications, such as digging basements or grading steep embankments. Easily upgrade to AccuGrade™ when 3D control is required.
The dealer-installed AccuGrade system provides 3D guidance for making complex cuts and contours, eliminating the need for staking and checking. A dedicated monitor displays a digital design plan with 3D bucket tip positioning and elevation guidance, indicating precisely where to work and how much to cut or fill. Plug and play capability on the 336F L/LN simplifies upgrading. Choose from satellite (GNSS) control for large projects with complex designs or total station (UTS) systems in areas with limited reception.
Easy to Operate
Safe and Quiet Cab
The cab contributes to your comfort thanks to special viscous mounts and special roof lining and sealing, that limit vibration and unnecessary sound. Operators will enjoy the quietness and comfort of the all new cab.
Wide seats with air suspension and heat/cooling options, include a reclining back, upper and lower slide adjustments, and height and tilt angle adjustments to meet your needs for maximum comfort. The fully automatic climate control system keep operators comfortable and productive all day long in either hot or cold weather. Storage spaces are located in the front, rear, and side consoles of the cab. A drink holder accommodates a large mug, and a shelf behind the seat stores large lunch or toolboxes. Power supply sockets are available for charging your electronic devices like an MP3 player, a cell phone, or even a tablet.
Controls Just for You
The right and left joystick consoles can be adjusted to improve your comfort and productivity during the course of a day. The right joystick features a button that will reduce engine speed when you are not working to help save fuel. Touch it once and speed reduces; touch it again and speed increases for normal operation.
Easy to Navigate Monitor
The new LCD monitor is easy to see and navigate. Not only can it memorize up to 10 different work tools, it's also programmable in up to 42 languages to meet today's diverse workforce. The monitor clearly displays critical information you need to operate efficiently and effectively. Plus it projects the image from the standard rearview camera to help you see what's going on around you so you can stay safely focused on the job at hand.
Built to Last
The 336F L and 336F LN are offered with a range of booms and sticks. Each is built with internal baffle plates and stress-relieved for added durability, and each undergoes ultrasound inspection to ensure quality and reliability. Large box-section structures with thick, multi-plate fabrications, castings, and forgings are used in high-stress areas such as the boom nose, boom foot, boom cylinder, and stick foot to improve durability. Also, the boom nose pin retention method is a captured flag design for enhanced durability.
Booms, Sticks and Bucket Linkage for Any Job
Heavy Duty (HD) 6.5 m reach boom and sticks (3.9 m, 3.2 m, 2.8 m) offer you excellent all-around versatility for general excavation work like multipurpose digging and loading. Mass Excavation (ME) 6.18 m boom and stick (2.55 m) offer you enhanced performance in heavy-duty material. They provide higher digging forces due to special boom and stick geometry, and bucket linkage and cylinders are built for greater durability. Sticks are matched to the booms. Longer sticks are better when you need to dig deep or load trucks. Shorter sticks provide greater breakout force. Bucket linkages with or without a lifting eye are available.
All front linkage pins have thick chrome plating, giving them high wear resistance. Each pin diameter is made to distribute the shear and bending loads associated with the stick and to help ensure long pin, boom and stick life.
Talk to your Cat dealer to pick the best front linkage options for your applications.
Safe Work Environment
A Safe and Quiet Cab
The ROPS-certified cab provides you with a safe working environment.

Reliable and Productive
Powerful, Efficient Design
When it comes to moving heavy material quickly and efficiently, you need hydraulic horsepower – the type of ground-breaking power the 336F L/LN can deliver. Major hydraulic components like pumps and valves are located close together so shorter tubes and lines can be used. This design leads to less friction loss, reduced pressure drops, and more power to the ground for the work you need to get done. The heavy lift mode increases machine system pressure to improve lift – a nice benefit in certain situations. Heavy lift mode also reduces engine speed and pump flow in order to improve controllability.
Control Like No Other
Controllability is one of the main attributes of Cat excavators, and one of the key contributors to this is the main control valve. The valve opens slowly when your range of joystick lever movement is small and opens rapidly when movement is high. It puts flow where you need it when you need it, which leads to smoother operation, greater efficiency, and lower fuel consumption.
SmartBoom™ – Reduces Stress and Vibrations Transmitted to the Machine
- Rock Scraping – Scraping rock and finishing work is easy and fast. SmartBoom simplifies the task and allows the operator to fully concentrate on the stick and bucket while the boom freely goes up and down without using pump flow.
- Hammer Work – It has never been this productive and operator-friendly. The front parts automatically follow the hammer while penetrating the rock. Blank shots or excessive force on the hammer are avoided, resulting in longer life for the hammer and machine. Similar advantages are applicable when using vibratory plates.
- Truck Loading – Loading trucks from a bench is more productive and fuel efficient as the return cycle is reduced while the boom down function does not require pump flow.
Auxiliary Hydraulics for Added Versatility
Auxiliary hydraulics give you greater tool versatility so you can take on more work with just one machine, and there are several options from which you can choose. A quick coupler circuit, for example, will allow you to switch from one tool to another in a matter of minutes.
Boom and Stick Oil Re-circulation for Added Efficiency
The 336F L regenerates the flow of oil from the head end of the boom and stick cylinders to the rod end of the boom and stick cylinders during the work cycle to save energy and improve fuel efficiency. It's optimized for any dial speed setting you select, which results in less pressure loss for higher controllability, more productivity, and lower operating costs for you.

Biodiesel Not a Problem
The C9.3 engine can run on up to B20 biodiesel fuel that meets ASTM 6751 standards – all to give you more potential fuel-saving flexibility.
Long (L) and Long Narrow (LN) undercarriages contribute significantly to outstanding stability and durability. Track shoes, links, rollers, idlers, and final drives are all built with long-lasting, high-tensile-strength steel for long-term durability. Cat Grease Lubricated Track 2 (GLT2) track link protects moving parts by keeping water, debris, and dust out and grease sealed in, which delivers longer wear life and reduced noise when traveling. Optional guide guards help maintain track alignment to improve the machine's overall performance – whether you're traveling on a flat, heavy bed of rock or a steep, wet field of mud.
The 336F L/LN is a well-built machine designed to give you a very long service life. The upper frame has mountings made specifically to support the heavy-duty cab; it's also reinforced around areas that take on a lot of stress like the boom foot and skirt. Massive bolts are used to attach the track frames to the body, and additional bolts are used to increase the machine's digging force, which leads to more productivity for you.
The 6.0 mt counterweight is built with thick steel plates and reinforced fabrications to make it less susceptible to damage, designed with curved surfaces that match the machine's sleek, smooth appearance along with integrated housings to help protect the standard rearview camera.
