During the event, area contractors and municipalities were given the opportunity to see the newest models of Caterpillar equipment at work in a quarry setting. Throughout the day, participants were encouraged to operate the new equipment.

Milton CAT also held a red tag sale, offering significant discounts and strong financing on equipment purchased at the event. Factory representatives were on hand to answer questions and representatives of Cat Financing arranged the purchase of equipment.

The event also featured a Milton CAT Solutions tent where attendees had the opportunity to become familiar with some of the other Caterpillar and Milton CAT offerings, including crushing and screening equipment, paving sales and support, undercarriage solutions, used parts, and much more.

Food and refreshments were provided during the event.
