Caterpillar: Modern Earthmoving Marvels

Fans of Caterpillar equipment likely know chapter and verse of the line’s birth and evolution well into the 20th century. In Caterpillar: Modern Earthmoving Marvels, you’ll learn the story of the modern line.

Author Frank Raczon details the largest and most modern earthmoving machines of today’s world, with clear explanations of how and why they work the way they do, as well as interviews and comments from Cat engineers and operators. Featuring rare historical photos and insight from noted industrial historian Keith Haddock, the book offers a glimpse of how the Caterpillar’s rise from an under-the-radar producer of farm and industrial equipment put it on track to its current status as international corporate superstar.
