Bold black-and-red "Modern Hex" design to adorn Cat equipment by 2020

Cat machines, engines, generator sets and work tools will soon have a new look. Caterpillar is replacing the current "Power Edge" trade dress (Cat trademark on a black background accented with a diagonal red bar) with a fresh new graphic design called "Cat Modern Hex." The Cat Modern Hex design combines the traditional Cat trademark and product model names with a bold, three-dimensional red hexagon and grille pattern. The red color is a throwback to the graphics used on the company's very first crawler tractors in 1925.

Reduced Weight Cat 303E CR Mini Hydraulic Excavator Simplifies Transport While Maintaining Performance

The Cat 303E CR mini hydraulic excavator has been reduced in weight to accommodate customers who require a maximum 10,000-lb (4 536-kg) transport weight—yet performance of the lighter excavator has not been compromised when compared to the current model. In many regions a loaded trailer of more than 10,000 lb (4 536 kg) requires the tow vehicle driver to have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL). The new 303E CR weighs 6,750 lb (3 062 kg) when equipped with a canopy, full fuel tank and 24-inch (610-mm) bucket. The weight is down from the previous machine weight of 7,300 lb (3 311 kg), and this difference provides expanded margin to accommodate trailer weight and ancillary equipment while keeping total weight less than 10,000 lb (4 536 kg).
