We’re on a quest to find the best — the best equipment operator in the world. Think you have what it takes behind the controls? Sign up for a local Operator Challenge event in 2022 and show off your agility, speed and accuracy in a series of skills-based tests. Local winners move on to the regional finals, and from there to the Global Operator Challenge finals at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas, where Caterpillar will crown one operator world champion. Will it be you?
