The 352F L is built to take on your up-close and far-out excavating tasks. The 52-ton machine features a variable gauge undercarriage that retracts for transport and expands to help increase stability and lift capability, particularly helpful when you do a lot of work over the side. Where the real power comes in is through the integrated engine, hydraulic, and work tool systems. You can move tons of material – literally – every hour, on the hour, all day long with a great deal of speed, precision, and efficiency.

Key Features
Built-in benefits and available options

Following are the built-in benefits and available options that make 352F L an outstanding performer and an excellent choice for your line of work:

  • The C13 ACERT engine meets U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4 Final emission standards.
  • The emissions package works behind the scenes without interrupting your job.
  • Engine speed control automatically lowers rpm when the machine doesn’t need it to help you save fuel.
  • Three power modes – high, standard, and eco – and automatic engine idle shutdown help you more actively manage fuel consumption.

  • Major hydraulic components are located close together so shorter tubes and lines can be used, leading to less friction loss, reduced pressure drops, and more power to the ground.
  • The main control valve opens slowly when the range of joystick lever movement is small and opens rapidly when movement is high, putting flow where you need it when you need it for smoother operation and greater efficiency.
  • Electric boom and stick regeneration keeps oil flow at the head and rod ends of the cylinders instead of going back to the tank, which results in less pressure loss for higher controllability, more productivity, and lower operating costs.

  • The full-size roll-over protective structure (ROPS) cab is both quiet and comfortable.
  • The automatic climate control system maintains consistent cab temperature.
  • Joysticks, armrests, and seats adjust to your preference.
  • Seats include heated and cooled options.
  • The LED monitor is programmable in 42 languages.
  • A drink holder, storage areas, and auxiliary power outlets are in easy-to-reach areas.

  • Heavy-duty (HD) reach and mass excavation (ME) booms and sticks are available.
  • HD reach booms and sticks offer you excellent all-around versatility for general excavation work like multipurpose digging and loading.
  • ME booms and sticks provide higher digging forces for heavy material like rock due to special boom and stick geometry, bucket linkage, and cylinders built for greater durability.
  • The upper frame is built with special mounts to support the ROPS cab.
  • The lower frame is reinforced to enhance component durability.
  • Track shoes, links, rollers, idlers, and final drives are built with high-tensile-strength steel.
  • Grease-lubricated track link prevents dirt and debris from entering.
  • The counterweight is bolted directly to the main frame for added rigidity.

Work Tools
  • Multiple Cat Work Tools – designed specifically for Cat machines – are available for a wide range of applications.
  • Cat quick couplers allow you to switch from one tool to another in a matter of minutes.
  • Cat tool control remembers pressures and flows for up to 10 tools so you can quickly get to work after each tool change.

  • Routine maintenance items like grease points, fluid taps, filters, and drain tubes can be reached at ground level.
  • Compartment doors are designed to prevent debris entry, and they securely latch in place to enhance ease of service.
  • The side-by-side cooling system is efficient and easy to clean, and it is capable of being upgraded for high-ambient conditions.

Technology Options
  • Cat Grade Control delivers 2D bucket tip elevation guidance to the cab to help you create precise planes and slopes with ease, eliminating the need for staking and checking.
  • Cat AccuGrade™ provides 3D guidance for making complex cuts and contours.
  • Product Link™/VisionLink® connects you to your machine, providing access to its location, hours, fuel consumption, idle time, events, and diagnostic codes.
