Excavatoare de talie mare Cat® 374D L
- The hydraulic system includes two large, heavy-duty main pumps and a separate swing pump to provide quick cycle time and easier controllability during multi-function operation.
- In case the main pumps reach relief pressure, the High Pressure Cut-off System automatically destrokes the pumps to reduce energy waste and, therefore, improve fuel consumption.
- Controller reduces pump output to save energy when joysticks are in neutral position.
Proportional Priority Pressure Compensation (PPPC) Hydraulics: Main Valve
Load sensing, Proportional Priority Pressure Compensation (PPPC) allows the operator to control the cylinder speed directly related to operator's movement of joystick and not dependent on load for an easier control. Caterpillar developed electronic actuation and offers three predefined modes activated through a switch (Soft, Normal and Quick) to match operator preference and application needs.
Proportional Priority Pressure Compensation (PPPC) Hydraulics: Electrical Regeneration Valve
A hydraulically-operated stick regeneration circuit saves energy and improves multi-function performance during stick-in operation. The boom regeneration circuit is operated electronically, managed by the controller of the machine. The system improves cycle times and fuel efficiency, increasing your productivity and reducing operating costs.
Reverse Swing Dampening Valve
Swing dampening valves reduce swing wag and produce smooth swing stops.
The following are hydraulic system features of the 374D L.
- The electric re-generation system is incorporated into the hydraulic system to improve productivity and lower fuel consumption.
- The main pump flow has increased 10 percent to provide shorter cycle times.
- The main implement pressure has been increased 9 percent. This also provides shorter cycle times with higher digging forces, increased bucket fill factors.
- Stick cylinder diameter for mass and reach configurations has been increased along with the bucket cylinder diameter on the reach stick. These increases produce 17 percent higher digging forces.
Variable Gauge Undercarriage
The long variable gauge undercarriage is standard, providing a wide, stable base for operating, or a narrow gauge for reduced shipping width. The undercarriage gauge in working position has been increased by 160 mm for improved stability.
The upper frame is designed for maximum durability and efficient use of materials. The boomfoot, skirt and counterweight mounting area have been strengthened for longer service life and increased durability.
- Outer frame utilizes curved side rails, which are die-formed for excellent uniformity and strength through the length
- Box section channels improve upper frame rigidity under the cab
- Boom tower and one piece main rails are constructed of solid, high-tensile strength steel plates
The catwalk width has been extended to 500 mm (+28 percent wider than the 365C L). Catwalks are provided on both sides of the skirt for easy access of the maintenance points. Slip resistant plates are used on the full length of the catwalks.
Cross Roller Bearing
The 374D L swing bearing is a cross roller type, with 54 mm diameter rollers. The cross rollers have a much greater contact area than ball bearing, providing increased stability and longer life.
Track Roller Frames
The track roller frame is made of thick, steel plate that is bent into a U-shape and welded to the bottom plate to create a box structure. The box structure design provides increased rigidity and impact resistance.
Increase Machine Versatility
The Cat combination of machine and tool provides a total solution for just about any application. Work tools can be mounted directly to the machine or a quick coupler can be added, making it quick and easy to release one work tool and pick up another.
Cat quick couplers enable the operator to simply release one work tool and pick up another. Your hydraulic excavator becomes highly versatile. The dedicated CW-Series quick coupler enables a quick tool exchange while maintaining top machine performance. A lifting hook is added for maximum lift capacity.

Long service intervals reduce maintenance costs. Engine oil, oil filter and fuel filters are at 500 hours.
Oil Sample and Pressure Ports
Oil sample and pressure ports provide easy checking of machine condition and are standard on every machine.
Hydraulic Capsule Filters
The return filters or capsule filters for the hydraulic system are located beside the hydraulic tank. The filter elements are removable without spilling hydraulic oil.
Service points are centrally located with easy access to facilitate routine maintenance.
Pilot Hydraulic System Filter
Pilot hydraulic system filter keeps contaminants from the pilot system and is located in the pump compartment.
Remote Greasing Block
A concentrated remote greasing block on the boom delivers grease to hard-to-reach locations.
Radial Seal Cleaner
Radial seal main air cleaner with precleaner has a double-layered filter element for more efficient filtration. No tools are required to change the element.
The water separator removes water from fuel, even when under pressure, and the water level can be monitored in the cab.
Rock Scraping (1)
Scraping rock and finishing work is easy and fast. SmartBoom simplifies the task and allows the operator to fully concentrate on stick and bucket, while boom freely goes up and down without using pump flow.
Hammer Work (2)
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 the machine. Similar advantages are applicable when using vibratory plates.
Truck Loading (3)
Loading trucks from a bench is more productive and more fuel efficient as the return cycle is reduced while the boom down function does not require pump flow.
ACERT® Technology is a differentiated technology that reduces emissions at the point of combustion. The technology capitalizes on proven Caterpillar leadership in three core engine systems: fuel, air and electronics.

Buckets and Teeth
Caterpillar offers a wide range of buckets, each designed and field tested to function as an integral part of your excavator. All Cat Buckets feature Cat K Series™ GET (Ground Engaging Tools). Buckets are available in four levels of durability and are built to take full advantage of the machine's power.
General Duty (GD)
General Duty buckets are designed for use in low impact, lower abrasion materials such as dirt, loam and mixed compositions of dirt and fine gravel.
Heavy Duty (HD)
Heavy Duty buckets are the most popular and a good “centerline” choice. This bucket style is a good starting point when application conditions are not known. Heavy Duty buckets are designed for a wide range of impact and abrasion conditions including mixed dirt, clay and rock.
Severe Duty (SD)
Severe Duty buckets are designed for higher abrasion conditions such as shot granite. When compared to the Heavy Duty bucket, wear bars and wear plates are substantially thicker and larger for added protection.
Extreme Duty (XD)
Extreme Duty buckets are designed for very high abrasion conditions such as granite quarries. Corner shrouds have been added and side wear plates are larger for added protection.
The undercarriage supports the swing bearing and upper structure and is the link that transmits the reaction forces from digging to the ground. The strength of the undercarriage plays a major factor in machine stability and durability.
Track Roller Frame
The track roller frame has been improved by installing a longer stroke recoil spring and lowering the front idler. The longer recoil spring improves durability and service life of the undercarriage while the offset idler increases the stability of the machine while working over the front.
Positive Pin Retention 2 (PPR2)
Track links with the PPR2 are provided as standard on the 374D L. The PPR2 track link is designed to prevent looseness of the track pin in the track link and to reduce stress concentrations. The PPR2 system eliminates pin walking for increased service life.
The carrier rollers use a floating “Duo-Cone™” seal. The Duo-Cone seal protects the moving parts in the carrier roller from water and dirt, and makes lubrication maintenance-free.
The more durable forged idler is standard on the 374D L.
