Construction Equipment Guide


Caterpillar will offer a family of articulated truck bare chassis to support specialty machines not included in the portfolio of Cat products. Sales of the bare chassis without the dump bed will be targeted toward Caterpillar dealers and original equipment manufactures (OEMs) who specialize in such applications as water trucks, high capacity waste, lube and fuel trucks, etc. Cat articulated dump trucks will continue to be sold through Caterpillar dealers around the world.

Caterpillar OEM Solutions Group will assume commercial responsibility for articulated truck bare chassis sold as custom machine solutions. This includes standard and long rear frame length configurations. Working with Caterpillar dealers, OEMs and end-users, OEM Solutions Group can assist with application and integration issues, helping determine the best solutions for mounting a variety of tools and attachments.

The bare chassis product shares very high commonality with Cat articulated dump trucks. Therefore, available Caterpillar information can address many questions related to the bare chassis product.

Service support and financing are available through the worldwide network of Caterpillar dealers. A variety of genuine Cat parts also are available to make customizing the bare chassis easier, such as hoist cylinders and pivot pins.

The articulated truck bare chassis product will be available for Cat dealer and OEM orders during the second quarter 2009.
