Caterpillar machinery reaches milestone
On 20th August, 2014, Caterpillar HQ made an important announcement: the company has now produced more than 75,000 wheel tractor-scrapers, all made at their manufacturing premises in Decatur, Illinois. Those who know their CAT stuff may be aware that the mighty scraper, along with the motor grader, Caterpillar dozer and the track-type tractor, is one of the ‘product families’ that helped the brand to become so successful following the Second World War. At that time, people starting moving to the suburbs and the demand for excavation skyrocketed.
Today’s wheel tractor-scrapers offer old-school reliability in combination with cutting-edge technology, including high-pressure steering, payload monitoring, automated cycles, engine protection and fuel economy. All in all, they’re built for maximum efficiency, minimum complication with an extensive range of spare parts available.
