No matter which Cat model you choose, you can depend on it being a quality-made machine backed by the world's finest product support.

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 352F XE 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.
Our Smart Valve Is Smart for You
Think of the ACS valve as the “brain” of the system – one that independently controls machine functions and directs hydraulic energy where you need it precisely when you need it.
Because the ACS valve is fully integrated with the pump, you will experience the same extraordinary control, hydraulic power, and lift capacity that you get from our traditional valve machines with the added benefit of dramatically reduced 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 is just one example. When paired with our tool control system that remembers the pressures and flows for up to 10 attachments, the quick coupler allows you to switch from one tool to another to get back to making money in a matter of minutes.

Fuel Efficient

A Unique Emissions Solution
The Cat C13 ACERT engine meets today's EU Stage IV emission standards. It provides plenty of power for the work you do consuming only the necessary amount of fuel to do it – all to help keep your owning and operating costs to an absolute minimum.
Fuel-Saving Features
Two built-in fuel-saving features are on-demand engine power and engine idle shutdown. On-demand engine power keeps engine speed low during light loading and adjusts speed up when it senses something heavier out front. Engine idle shutdown automatically shuts the engine off when it's been idling for more than a specified amount of time. Both will help you save fuel, reduce emissions, and extend your service intervals.
Three power modes – high power, standard power, and eco mode – help you actively manage fuel consumption. Simply change between modes through the console switch panel to meet the needs for the job in front of you.
Biodiesel Not a Problem
The C13 ACERT engine can run on up to B20 biodiesel fuel that meets ASTM 6751 standards – all to give you more potential fuel-saving flexibility.

Durable Structures

Robust Frames
The 352F XE 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, skirt, and counterweight removal system. 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.
Stable Undercarriage
The 352F XE's long variable gauge undercarriage contributes significantly to its outstanding stability and durability.
Track shoes, links, rollers, idlers, and final drives are all built with long-lasting, high-tensile-strength steel. Cat Grease Lubricated Track 4 (GLT4) 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. Cat Positive Pin Retention 2 (PPR2) prevents looseness of the track pin in the track link, reduces stress concentrations, and eliminates pin walking for increased service life.
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.
Great Weight
Whether you are loading trucks or picking pipe, a 9.0 mt counterweight gives you plenty of stability.

Durable Linkages

Built to Last
The 352F XE is 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.
Types and Sizes for Every Job
Heavy Duty 6.9 m reach boom and sticks (3.35 m, 2.9 m) offer you excellent all-around versatility for general excavation work like multipurpose digging and loading.
Mass Excavation (ME) 6.55 m boom and sticks (3.0 m, 2.5 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.
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.

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. Real-time bucket tip elevation guidance on the 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 grade. 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 trenches and basements or grading steep embankments.
Cat AccuGrade™
The dealer-installed AccuGrade system uses a dedicated monitor with a digital design plan for 3D bucket tip positioning and elevation guidance. AccuGrade indicates precisely where to work and how much to cut or fill – eliminating staking and checking.
Plug and play capability on the 352F XE simplifies upgrading. Choose from satellite (GNSS) or total station (UTS) control for large projects with complex designs.
