You may be able to increase productivity even with the same fleet. Ask about operator training that helps operators get more out of existing and new machines alike.

Quality equipment makes good operators even better. They help with employee recruiting and retention. Quality also means safety, with rear-view cameras to improve visibility, proximity sensors for additional security and dedicated cab guards for added operator protection.

Committed to Your Business Needs

Task, Tool, Machine.

We encourage a simple three-step approach to equipment selection, starting with a thorough understanding of the task. Once the task, or application, is well understood, the appropriate worktool is selected. Finally, the biggest part of the picture, the equipment is chosen. The right machines supports the right work tool for the task at hand. And you get the right solution for your business.

In a site assessment, Caterpillar experts work with you and your dealer to study site objectives and application&emdash;and then suggest the work tools and machines to provide the best productivity.

Committed to Lowering Your Operating Cost

With a complete range of purpose built machinery for demolition and scrap recycling applications featuring:

Purpose-Built Guards

The right guards are built for the application and protect your demolition or scrap-handling equipment from turning into scrap. All machines are protected in key areas, including undercarriages, radiators, axles and cabs. Ask us about guarding options for your equipment.

Cat Flexport™ Tires

These heavy duty applications can be hard on tires. But hard tires aren't the only solution. Puncture-proof Flexport tires ensure maximum uptime. And their exclusive elliptically-shaped sidewall ports produce a smoother, more cushioned ride for greater operator comfort, machine stability and extended tire life.

Air Filtration

Air quality can take a toll on machines and operators in scrap applications. We use independent air filtration systems for the operator cab and machine engine system to ensure improved operator comfort and longer engine life.

Variable Pitch/Reverse Fan

Debris build up can affect cooling systems that aren't designed for it. Our fan design actively expels debris, keeping your system cleaner and cooler at the same time.

Patented Ground Entry/Exit on New MH3000 Series

Slips, trips, and falls are a huge safety concern for owners and operators. The patented ground entry/exit hydraulic cab riser system on the new Cat MH3000 series material handlers minimizes these concerns. One step and you're in.
