Eight Cat machines will make their public debut at CONEXPO and a half dozen more machines introduced recently will be on display for the first time at an equipment show. The newest Cat machines to be displayed include excavators (M317F, 390F and 336F XE), wheel loaders (986K, 950 GC, 950M, 972M XE and 982M ), an updated D6T and new D8T dozer. In addition to these, Caterpillar will also display a new 745 articulated truck, a new TH514D telehandler and three new cold planers—PM825, PM622 and PM312. It will also introduce new remote control technologies and connectivity technologies at the show.
Besides these, Caterpillar will present several innovative solutions also available across its 14-model line of compact excavators. The 300.9D Versatile Power System (VPS) with H25 Hammer represents an ideal configuration for indoor demolition applications. Another unique solution is the 304.5E2 Extra Tool Carrier (XTC), which includes a skid steer loader coupler interface in place of the traditional dozer blade.
