Cat® customers tell it like it is

Fencing Business Built on Solid Foundation of Support from Cat® Dealer

Yachal Benedick, owner of Hold ‘Em Fence, has been building fences in nearly every state west of the Mississippi for fourteen years. He built his business on the foundation of loyalty and relationships and continues that focus today.

The 769 made its first public appearance at the Construction Equipment Exposition and Road Show in the Chicago Amphitheater on February 23, 1963. Customers saw firsthand Caterpillar’s answer to some of their biggest concerns – it performed better, ran faster, hauled more, operated more safely and lasted longer than any truck in the marketplace. It was 100 percent designed by one company, and it was supported by a world-class distribution system.
