You probably know Cat® equipment for its impressive performance and reliability. If you haven’t checked out a new Cat machine in a while, you’ll be pleased to see that on top of their legendary qualities, Cat has added many modern in-cab monitor features that make operating your machine even easier and safer.
The in-cab monitor in Cat equipment is designed for easy use and helps you control many impressive features:
- The main menu is your home screen, from which you can access all your features. A button at the bottom of the screen allows you to quickly return to the previous screen.
- You can turn auto idle on or off, depending on how often your equipment tends to sit idle. This is an easy way to save fuel and can be switched on and off at your convenience.
- A backup camera is available. With three pushes of the button you can turn it on, and a fourth push allows you to enter full-screen mode for maximum rear view on your monitor.
- It’s simple to adjust the auxiliary flow of your equipment from your monitor. Simply select up or down to set the desired flow rate and hit “OK” to lock it in.

Hey, I’m Colin and this is today’s Quick Tip.
Today I am going to share some of the features of the in-cab monitor in your Cat E Series Mini Hydraulic Excavator.
The first button is your main menu.
This will allow you to access any of the menu items you wish.
To exit this screen, hit the return button.
This button controls auto idle, giving you the option to turn this feature on or off.
By pressing this button three times you’ll engage the backup camera.
Pressing it a fourth time will engage full screen.
This button will allow you to adjust flow between 1 and 15.
You can adjust the flow up or down by hitting the buttons next to the left and right arrows.
Then simply hit OK to lock in the change.
These are just a few of the great features built into your in-cab monitor.
As always, consult your operation and maintenance manual for more information.
That was today’s Quick Tip, thanks for watching.
