Increased ServiceabilityCat 336DL Service Area

To help reduce maintenance costs and downtime, Cat has designed the 336DL with easily accessible service locations for quick, simple access to the main components. For instance, the radiator is behind the rear left service door, which opens wide for easy access to the oil cooler, engine radiator and air-to-air cooler.

While on the right side of the machine, you’ll find a service door on the upper structure. This provides ground-level access to the pump and pilot filter. To go with this efficient design, Cat has fitted the 336D L with S-O-S sampling ports and hydraulic test ports for the:

  • Hydraulic system
  • Engine oil
  • Coolant

To go with serviceability is the complete customer care that dealers provide. New machines come with warranty and the option for customer support, and regular repair and maintenance program.

Of course, Cat technicians are also experts when it comes to their machines and you can count on that expertise when they are repairing or doing regular servicing on your excavator.

In the cab, you’ll notice the wide, adjustable armrests and a retractable seatbelt. To go with comfortable seating is an ergonomic control layout,  increasing operator efficiency.

Each Cat 336DL excavator is fitted with an LCD display, capable of displaying information in 27 different languages. As well as an automatic climate control system that automatically adjusts temperature and flow, ensuring your operator works in comfort all day.

The gauge display is conveniently placed to ensure the operator is able to quickly and easily monitor key information, like:

  • Coolant temperature

To really make the cab feel more inviting the Cat 336DL has an enlarged skylight with sunshade attached. Providing excellent visibility and ventilation.

Cat 336DL Price

The price for the Cat 336DL comes down to the usual factors—age, condition and attachments. You’ll find a used Cat 336DL excavator for sale for anywhere between $150,000 and $250,000*. The 336DL has been in production for a long time, so older models will be a lot cheaper than a newer, more recent model.
