The Cat 304.5E2 mini hydraulic excavator is the first model in the Xtra Tool Carrier (XTC) lineup. Built on the reliable E2 platform, this unit offers the same level of quality, performance, and operator comfort expected from a Cat mini hydraulic excavator. In addition, the machine has an innovative skid steer coupler interface for added versatility and work tool integration. This manual coupler allows for use of compact loader tools, including: general-purpose bucket, multi-purpose bucket, forks, dozer blade, brooms, power box rakes and trenchers. Coupler operation is controlled through a flick of the XTC switch on the right-hand console in the operator station. The standard right-hand joystick then becomes your loader.
