T he new Cat 365B L Excavator

takes excavator design and
technology to a new level. The 365B
incorporates all the advanced features
of Cat 300 Family B-Series Excavators,
plus it features an electronically
integrated power and hydraulic system
like no other.
This system offers more power,

Designed as a replacement for the

Cat 245B, the 65-ton 365B is an
aggressive performer in digging and
trenching applications, with weight
and working ranges similar to that
of the 245B. Plus, the 365B has the
stability and lift capacity to maximize
production loading of off-highway
trucks. The 365B also features a
variable gauge undercarriage for
easy transport. Table of Contents:

Working Advantage: Innovative Control

T he Cat 365B brings together

the very best power, hydraulic and
electronic technologiesits simply
smarter. And, its easy to operate.

Fully Integrated Control

The 365B is the first 300 Family
B-Series Excavator to feature a
fully integrated system. The operator,
engine, pumps, and hydraulics
work interactively through three
controllersa monitor controller,
a pump-valve controller and an The Vital Information Display

(ADEM II) engine controller. These monitoring and communications

Operating data on demand.
Communication between controllers or
between the machine and operator is
possible via an exclusive, Caterpillar
developed electronic information link.
This link also allows critical machine
information to be downloaded to a PC
using the ET service tool.
Two Work Modes
With two work modes available at the
touch of a button, the operator can
choose the optimum engine speed and
hydraulic flow for the work situation.
Digging Mode. This mode is
designed for high-production truck
loading and trenching, high-speed
travel and hammer use.
Heavy Lift Mode. When activated,
lift capacity or digging force is
increased by 9%. When Heavy
Lift Mode is on, actuator speed
is restricted to ensure excellent

Engine Efficiency
The 365B is the first Cat Excavator to
use the proven 3196 Air-To-Air
Aftercooled (ATAAC) engine with an
Advanced Diesel Engine Module
(ADEM II) fuel system. The system
optimizes fuel injection volume and
timing to improve fuel efficiency and
engine performance.

Automatic Engine Control (AEC)

The AEC greatly reduces sound levels
for easier communication and reduces
fuel consumption. Lower engine
speeds also increase engine life and
reduce repair and maintenance costs.
Activate the AEC by pressing the
button on the keypad. Selecting AEC
1 will automatically reduce engine
speed by 100 rpm if light or no-load
conditions occur for more than three
seconds. In the same situation, if the
AEC indicator is set on 2, engine
speed will automatically reduce to
1300 rpm.
The one-touch low-idle button,
located on the top of the right
joystick, cuts engine speed from
high idle to 1000 rpm.
Using any hydraulic function
automatically returns the engine to
the throttle setting.
