The 972M wheel loader was just one piece of equipment on display at the Cat press event in Peoria, Ill. The wheel loader was put through its paces in the spacious demo area at Caterpillar’s Edwards Demonstration and learning center.
Caterpillar announced the debut of several new equipment models and a brand new strategy for migrating used equipment from Tier IV standard to lesser regulated territories across the globe at a press event held at its Peoria, Ill., headquarters Nov. 6 to 8.
The press was given a sneak peak at the new 980M and 982M wheel loaders, the C Series articulated dump trucks — 725C, 730C and 730C EJ ejector — and an overview of the new D series skid steer loaders released in October.
Cat employees were on hand to provide walk-arounds of the equipment, as well as allow time for the members of the press to jump into the driver’s seats of the new models.
