Meet Your Targets Every Time, in Less Time

Whether you’re looking to get to grade in fewer passes, load and haul material more efficiently or get to compaction levels in fewer passes, it all comes down to one thing—getting more work done in less time. But how do you achieve that without cutting corners on quality or eating into profits? Cat® Connect Technology and Services can help you solve big production challenges. Cat Connect is an intelligent suite of hardware, software and services that help you get more out of every asset and jobsite.

All the Work, Half the Time

Adding Cat Grade technology to its fleet is paying off big time for Eagle Excavation. Using a GPS-equipped Cat dozer recently shaved two weeks off the duration of a 95,000-cubic-yard earthmoving project. Another bonus? Cost savings in the range of $12,000 to $15,000.

“GPS keeps people on tractors all day long,” says President Bill Dillan. “There’s no one running around trying to put stakes in the ground. There’s nobody getting off to check grade.”

That includes operators like Corey Mikell, who can now get to grade in just two passes. “Production efficiency is way higher because you get the job done in half the time,” he says.


45 Days Ahead of Schedule

An 861-acre site, five million cubic yards of earth to move and a tight timeline may sound daunting, but not to Brad Cole Construction.

“Having GPS technology allows us to be more competitive,” says Executive Vice President Ron Cryer of Cat Grade with 3D on the company’s dozers. “It’s really helped us on this project by allowing us to establish grades accurately and more efficiently.”

It’s helping Brad Cole Construction stay ahead of project deadlines, too.

“3D grade control definitely speeds up production,” says Project Superintendent Jeff Weaver. “It gives our operators the advantage of making one pass versus three or four passes.”

The result? “We’re actually slated to complete this project about 45 days early,” Cryer says. “That translates into a satisfied customer.”

9,000+ Passes Eliminated

Facing an enormous soil compaction challenge on an earthen dam project in northern Greece, the TENA SA crew tackled it with the help of Cat Compact.

TENA was responsible for placing 138 feet of compacted material on an existing 108-foot embankment, applying it in 7.8-inch layers and compacting it to 5.9 inches. Working in sandy clay made achieving uniform compaction and monitoring densities difficult.

Enter Machine Drive Power (MDP). This machine-integrated soil compaction measurement technology evaluates rolling resistance while it works, enabling much faster discovery of inconsistencies across an entire site—and it works in any type of soil.

“MDP saved us considerable time and certainly money,” says President and CEO George Nathanailidis—and he has the numbers to prove it. MDP helped eliminate a stunning 9,520 passes, and it more than doubled productivity on the remaining passes by increasing the compactor’s working speed from 1.2 mph to 2.8 mph.

“I would recommend others use it because of fast measurement compaction, accuracy, reliability and increased productivity,” Nathanailidis says.
