Cat hydraulics deliver power and precise control to keep material moving
The hydraulic system includes three pumps with an independent swing circuit. The hydraulic circuit utilizes a load-sensing system to ensure high hydraulic system efficiency and excellent productivity with little hydraulic loss.
- Large, heavy-duty main pumps and a separate swing pump provide quick cycle times during multi-function operation.
REVERSE SWING DAMPENING VALVE
Swing dampening valves reduce swing wag and produce smooth swing stops.
The following are hydraulic system features of the 374D L:
- The electric re-generation system is incorporated into the hydraulic system to improve hydraulic efficiency and lower fuel consumption.
- The main pump flow has increased 10 percent to provide shorter cycle times.
- The main implement pressure has been increased 9 percent. This also provides shorter cycle times with higher digging forces and increased bucket fill factors.
- Stick cylinder diameter for mass and reach configurations has been increased along with the bucket cylinder diameter on the reach stick. These increases produce 17 percent higher digging forces.
- These features all combine to provide a significant increase to machine productivity.
PROPORTIONAL PRIORITY PRESSURE COMPENSATION (PPPC) HYDRAULICS
Load-sensing, PPPC system, with Caterpillar developed electronic actuation, provides high efficiency and excellent controllability.
- Cylinder speed is directly related to operator’s movement of joystick from feathering to full speed.
- Flow to cylinders during multifunctional operation is directly controlled by the operator and is not dependent on loads.
- Controller reduces pump output to minimum to save power when joysticks are in neutral position.
374D L is designed for simple, easy operation and comfort
The spacious cab provides good visibility and ergonomics. The monitor is a full-color graphical display which provides the operator with easy-to-read, comprehensive machine information. The cab provides a comfortable environment for the operator to work in and helps reduce fatigue over long periods.
HYDRAULIC ACTIVATION CONTROL LEVER
The hydraulic activation control lever deactivates hydraulic functions during engine start-up and prevents unintentional machine operation.
Utilizes thick steel tubing along the bottom perimeter of the cab, improving the resistance of fatigue and vibration. The cab structure allows the FOGS to be bolted directly to the cab, at the factory or as an attachment.
The cab shell is attached to the frame with viscous rubber cab mounts, which dampen vibrations and sound levels while enhancing operator comfort.
The 374D L operator station has many features for operator comfort:
- Premium KAB seats with adjustable height consoles.

The maximum power is 355 kW (476 hp), which is 18 percent more than the 365C. Power Management System (PMS) is now standard to better manage productivity and fuel economy.
IMPROVED FUEL EFFICIENCY
The 374D L fuel maps provide additional power and performance with optimized fuel consumption through flexible power settings incorporated into ADEM™ controller.
The titanium-aluminum alloy rotor in the turbocharger improves reliability/durability and contributes to faster response of the turbocharger.
HYDRAULIC COOLING FAN
The 374D L uses a variable speed, hydraulically-driven fan for quieter operation and reduced fuel consumption during cooler ambient conditions.
A reversible fan option is offered as an attachment. The reverse function is operated through the monitor. By selecting this function, the fan rotates in the opposite direction for a preset time to help clean the cooling package for increased uptime and reduced service cost.
MONITOR DISPLAY SCREEN
The monitor is a full color, 400 × 234 pixels Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). A master caution lamp blinks ON and OFF when one of the critical conditions below occurs:
- Engine oil pressure low
- Coolant temperature high
- Hydraulic oil temperature high
- The monitor display screen is divided into four areas: clock and throttle dial, gauge, event display and multi-information display.
Three analog gauges, fuel level, hydraulic oil temperature and coolant temperature are displayed in this area.
Electronic joysticks provide features not possible with hydraulic pilot valves:
Eliminate pilot lines in cab for quieter operation
Simple pattern change through the monitor
This is used to suit the operator preference or application needs.
- Quicker for fast response
- Slower for more precision
- Contains three preset settings with 21 control perception patterns available
PATTERN CONTROL CHANGER
The standard hand control pattern changer can be accessed through the monitor, to utilize either the standard excavator control pattern (SAE) or Backhoe Loader pattern (BHL).
The alternator is 24 volt with 75 amp capacity and is driven by a serpentine belt off the front pulley. A snorkel pulls cool, clean air from the outside for increased service life.
Product Link on the 374D L is standard in some markets and available as an option in others. Product Link transmits diagnostic information from the machine back to Caterpillar, Cat dealers and customers.
Rugged structures designed for maximum durability
VARIABLE GAUGE UNDERCARRIAGE
The long variable gauge undercarriage is standard, providing a wide, stable base for operating, or a narrow gauge for reduced shipping width. The undercarriage gauge in working position has been increased by 160 mm (6.3 in) for improved stability.
The upper frame is designed for maximum durability and efficient use of materials. The boomfoot, skirt and counterweight mounting area have been strengthened for longer service life and increased durability. The outer frame utilizes curved, die-formed side rails for excellent uniformity and strength through length. The box section channels improve upper frame rigidity under the cab, while the boom tower and one-piece main rails are constructed of solid, high-tensile strength steel plates.
The catwalk width has been increased by 110 mm (4.3 in) from the 365C L. Catwalks are provided on both sides of the skirt for easy access of the maintenance points. Slip resistant plates are used on the full length of the catwalks.
CROSS ROLLER BEARING
The 374D L swing bearing is a cross roller type, with 54 mm (2.13 in) diameter rollers. The cross rollers have a much greater contact area than ball bearings particularly during boom down operation, providing increased stability and reducing machine pitching.
TRACK ROLLER FRAMES
The track roller frame is made of thick, steel plate that is bent into a U-shape and welded to the bottom plate to create a box structure for increased rigidity and impact resistance.
The link that transmits the reaction forces from digging to the ground
The undercarriage supports the swing bearing and upper structure and is the link that transmits the reaction forces from digging to the ground. The strength of the undercarriage plays a major factor in machine stability and durability.
TRACK ROLLER FRAME
The track roller frame has been improved by installing a longer stroke recoil spring and lowering the front idler. The longer recoil spring increases the stroke by 25 percent while improving durability and service life of the undercarriage. The offset idler increases the stability of the machine while working over the front.
POSITIVE PIN RETENTION 2 (PPR2)
Track links with the PPR2 are provided as standard on the 374D L. The PPR2 track link is designed to prevent looseness of the track pin in the track link and to reduce stress concentrations, particularly in severe underfoot conditions. The PPR2 system eliminates pin walking for increased service life.
The carrier rollers use a floating “Duo-Cone™” seal. The Duo-Cone seal protects the moving parts in the carrier roller from water and dirt and makes lubrication maintenance-free.
Designed for flexibility and high productivity
Cat Excavator booms and sticks are built for performance and long service life.
Castings and forgings are used at high stress areas such as boom nose, boom foot, boom cylinder and stick foot.
All booms and sticks are stress-relieved for optimal life and durability, while minimizing weight for improved performance.
All booms and sticks are ultrasonic inspected.
Two bucket linkages are available for the 374D L. Both linkages are available with or without a lifting eye on the power link.
The VB2 bucket linkage is for use with the reach sticks and VB2-family buckets
The WB2 bucket linkage is for use with the mass sticks and WB2-family buckets
374D L booms feature a large cross-section to improve strength and reduce weight. Baffle plates reinforce the boom interior for higher rigidity. Booms are designed for strength and maximum payload.
Sticks are made of high-tensile strength steel in a box-section design, making them strong and light. All sticks are reinforced with a thick baffle plate for added rigidity. The connection between stick and boom is made of forged steel, and a thick steel plate is used at the bucket connecting location for increased strength and rigidity at load-bearing points. An additional wear plate is added to the working side of the stick for protection. All mass sticks include additional wear bars on the working side to protect the structure during operation. There are four reach sticks and two mass sticks available to meet your needs.
Bucket cylinder pin and idler to stick pin diameters for the reach boom have been increased. The pins have thick chrome plating for high wear resistance and long life.
BUCKETS AND TEETH
Designed and built for total system performance
Caterpillar offers a wide range of buckets, each designed and field tested to function as an integral part of your excavator. All Cat Buckets feature K Series™ GET (Ground Engaging Tools). Buckets are available in four levels of durability and are built to take full advantage of the machine’s power.
GENERAL DUTY (GD)
