The 308E2 CR mini-excavator from Caterpillar has an ergonomically positioned COMPASS monitor that provides adjustable auxiliary flow, continuous flow, pattern changer, and work mode selections. It includes a site reference system, rearview camera, light, and auto engine shut-off. The site reference system provides output from pitch-and-roll sensors, which aid in grading and level trenching. The rearview camera offers an increased view on the job for machine positioning. Cab and boom lights can be set to remain illuminated after machine shutdown, giving the operator a clear view of the job site in low-light conditions. The engine can be programmed to shut off when inactive for a set number of minutes. 309/675-1000; www.cat.com.
