Caterpillar to exhibit at Northeastern Forest Products Equipment Expo

Caterpillar will exhibit at the Northeastern Forest Products Equipment Expo this week and bring its popular Caterpillar Loader Championship contest to the trade show.

The Northeastern Expo is the premier annual logging, sawmilling and pallet equipment show in the Northeast, co-sponsored by the Northeastern Loggers' Association and The Northern Logger & Timber Processor magazine. It will be held in Essex Junction, Vermont, May 6-7.

Milton Cat, with locations throughout the Northeast, will represent the Cat® brand. The Cat dealership will exhibit a number of forestry machines, including the Cat 535D skidder, Cat 521B feller buncher, and a Cat 501 track harvester, as well as other equipment.

The trade show will be held in three large buildings of the Champlain Valley Exposition and also will feature a large outside demonstration area for static demonstrations and live demos. 

The Caterpillar Loader Championship contest will feature a Cat 559C loader with a live heel circle. Contestants demonstrate their skill with the loader by picking up blocks of wood and moving them between two checkerboards. Loggers with the fastest times are the winners.

The Caterpillar Loader Championship benefits Log-A-Load for Kids, which raises funds for hospitals associated with the Children’s Miracle Network.
