The Big Excavator in A Little Body

Weighing in at 13.5 tonnes and fitted with a powerful and efficient Cat® C4.4 engine, the Cat 313FL delivers ground-breaking power with control like no other.

Whether it be site preparation, utility and services work or simply finishing off work, this small machine with big performance can cover all situations.

Brett Lenz, Sales Manager – Hydraulic Excavators said that the 313FL provides excellent breakout and performance to the operator when they need it.

“It’s the complete package. Coming standard with high pressure and medium pressure auxiliary lines from the factory, the 313FL provides all the flexibility needed on site.”

With a long undercarriage on a robust frame and a 4.65m boom and 2.5m stick, the 313FL is reinforced with thick, multi-plate fabrications, castings and forgings to ensure the machine can cope in high stress areas and is able to withstand all conditions.

The spacious ROPS cabin comes with climate control Airconditioning and a comfortable air suspension seat to ensure operators are comfortable and can maximize productivity while in this machine.

With advanced controls for maximum efficiency and performance, the Cat 313FL Hydraulic Excavator is a versatile, reliable and durable machine.

Mr. Lenz says that while the world is going through difficult times, Hastings Deering are working to ensure that they’re able to take the pressure off customers that need to keep up with demand.

“We’re trying to ensure that during these uncertain times, our customers are able to know they have the certainty of a reliable machine along with guaranteed fuel consumption under Cats Fuel Edge program, ensuring that they have the right equipment to get the job done, while also helping to take off some of the financial pressure away.”

“We’re offering no repayments for 3 months on a new Cat 313FL. This comes with our ‘Go To Work Pack’, a Cat Quick Hitch and Cat 600mm GD Bucket, so you’re ready to go straight to work.” he states.

Mr. Lenz said that with a starting price of $180,000 + GST, customers would now also be able to take advantage of the Federal Government’s ‘Backing Business Investment Program (BBI).’

In March, the Government introduced a time limited 15-month investment incentive to support business investment and economic growth over the short-term, by accelerating depreciation deductions.

“What this BBI program means is that for any new machinery, over the value of $150,000, customers are able to potentially apply higher accelerated depreciation to their new asset. We encourage them to speak to their accountants on how they can take advantage of the program.” said Mr. Lenz.

“This is an attractive offer from the Government, and one that we believe our customers can really benefit from.

Full details are available on the ATO website.”—accelerated-depreciation/

The BBI Program applies to eligible assets acquired and first used or installed by 30 June 2021.
