Tech Swap

Tech Swap

See what happens when a Cat® Racing and a Cat dealer technician trade places for a day.

Our customers depend on Cat® dealer technicians to keep their machines and engines up and running, because in their business downtime is money. It’s not unlike how Cat Racing drivers depend on their technicians to keep them going on the racetrack.

Cat dealer technicians do important, engaging, rewarding work, but the reality is there’s more available jobs than qualified workers to fill them. That’s why Caterpillar and many Cat dealers are making technician recruiting a top priority.

In our “Tech Swap” video series, a Cat Racing and Cat dealer technician trade places and learning about each other’s jobs. Watch to get an up-close look at what it takes to succeed in both shops.
