Estimated Hourly Fuel Consumption
323D (Tier 3)
Liters (U.S. gal)
Low = 6.5-12.5 (1.7-3.3)
Medium = 12.5-18.5 (3.3-4.9)
High = 18.5-24.8 (4.9-6.6)
Typical Application Description
(relative to work application)
Low = Mostly shallow depth urban utility construction where excavator sets pipe and digs less than 50%
of the daily work schedule. Sandy loam, free flowing, low density material. Most scrap handling
applications. Little traveling and little or no impact.
Medium = Most residential sewer applications. Continuous mass excavation and trenching in natural bed clay
soils. Digging 60-85% of the daily work schedule. Most log loading applications. Some traveling
and steady, full throttle operation.
High = Continuous trenching or truck loading in rock or shot rock soils. Most pipeline applications in hard
rocky material. Digging 90-95% of the daily work schedule. Large amount of travel over rough
ground. Working on rock floor with constant high load factor and high impact.
