Something to keep in mind with this list is that the attachments that will work best for you and be worth the investment really depend on what applications you’re doing the most. If you’re not sure where to start, go with more generalized attachments that work on many different applications. You can reassess your needs down the line to see whether it makes sense to start adding in more specialized attachments. Your local Cat® dealer is a great resource to help you address your pain points on the job site and come up with a plan to get you the equipment you need.
