Kent R Pellegrini, global product application specialist of Caterpillar Inc., explains the features of the new 336EH hybrid excavator.
Ohio CAT held two “Get In Get Real” events on Sept. 17 and Sept. 19 as a part of Caterpillar’s national demonstration events program. The events were held at the Ohio Operating Engineers Training Facilities in Richfield and Miamisburg, Ohio, respectively, providing ample space for attendees to get in and put the machines to work.
Each of the events began with classroom presentations followed by machine walk-arounds and stick time for attendees. In addition to Ohio CAT representatives, Cat factory representatives were on hand to provide insights into the design benefits being introduced. Products featured at the events were Caterpillar’s new 336EH hybrid and 320L RR (reduced radius) excavators, Cat’s CT660 vocational truck, and a variety of backhoes, dozers, skid steer and compact track loaders and wheel loaders.
According to Ohio CAT’s Mike Burdett, a major theme at the events was the cost/value proposition of machine control and guidance paired with machines capable of moving more dirt while burning less fuel.
Attendees at the event were provided lunch and an opportunity to win door prizes including a one-week free rental of a Cat machine.
