Caterpillar, booth G-4490

numberone

The M317F wheeled excavator has a compact radius design that expands the versatility of the machine working in tight spaces. It will represent Cat’s new F Series line. (Caterpillar also has an indoor exhibit in the North Hall, N-10924.)

Other equipment on display: The 950GC wheel loader, which will be compared to the full-featured 950M; the Cat Command remote control system for the D8T; a 988K wheel loader with Cat Command; the 309.9D Versatile Power System with H25 Hammer; and 304.5E2 Extra Tool carrier, which includes a skid steer loader coupler interface in place of a traditional dozer blade.

Booth activities: In-booth teleremote control of a D8T dozer working near Peoria, Illinois. Demonstrations of line-of-sight remote control systems for skid steers.

Volvo Construction Equipment, booth G-3894

numbertwo

In its outdoor booth, Volvo will showcase its compact equipment and attachments, including the EC60Ecompact excavator. (Volvo’s indoor display is in the North Hall, booth N-10036.)

Booth activities: Pan for gold with stars of Discovery Channel’s Gold Rush and get photos and autographs from the crew. Win cash prizes in hands-on contests on the two compact excavators. Experience what it’s like to steer a crew on the high seas with the Volvo Ocean Race simulated game.

Terramac, booth G-1716

numberthree

Four Terramac crawler carriers will be on display, including the RT14R (pictured), along with several attachments, including a hydroseeder for environmental restoration and a digger derrick. The company’s rubber track technology enables units to exert the low ground pressure necessary for environmental work even at full capacity. Flotation from the units’ rubber tracks leave a minimal footprint while also reducing slippage in rugged terrain.

Booth activities: Product demonstrations and the unveiling of a new crawler carrier.
