Online Catalogue last updated 4th of September 2018
Grass is green, earth is usually brown but Caterpillar equipment is definitely yellow and has had more than just a little impact on the landscape wherever it has been working. This video is a totally unofficial look at a cross section of these yellow machines working in various locations during the last three years. The list of equipment covers bulldozers, articulated front loading shovels, backhoes, articulated dump truck, motor scrapers, quarry trucks and a face shovel. The trucks include two Terex 3307's which were being loaded by a Cat 5080 and too good an opportunity to miss. Two items of kit which I was particularly pleased to capture on video are the D-11R and the 922C. (Listen to the 922C V12 engine snarling back under load). For the equipment enthusiast I know that sound is just as the important as visual appreciation, so narrative has been kept to the minimum and used only in order to impart information where appropriate. Please be aware however that all observations made in the commentary are intended for background information only, have no official basis and are purely personal. Although all technical specifications referred to have wherever possible been checked against catalogue content no guarantee as to their accuracy is implied.
