The new generation Caterpillar excavators (Cat 320 GC, 320, 323) were front and center during the event and Yancey and Caterpillar product trainers were on hand to provide complete demos and walk-arounds of these machines.
The new trio of machines are 20-ton class size excavators with state-of-the-art technology to provide owners and operators with a broader range of choices for increased efficiency and lower operating costs.
To ensure that customers throughout Georgia have access to this demonstration and training experience, Yancey Bros. Co. and Sitech South will hold four additional Technology Day events before the end of the year.
