Work Efficiently.

Get the job done faster with strong lift and dig performance. The reduced radius tail swing design provides exceptional stability and performance. With a maximum width of 1700 mm (67 in), the 304 can access those hard to get into areas. 

Be Versatile.

Moving around the job site is even easier with the Cat Stick Steer option. Easily switch from traditional travel controls with levers and pedals to joystick controls to move the machine and to operate the blade. The benefit of less effort and improved control is in your hands!
