Focus on the history of Caterpillar
The Caterpillar brand has many enthusiasts, and for good reason the company has been noticed since its beginnings at the end of the 19th century. One of the founders, Benjamin Holt, created his first machines (combine harvesters and steam tractors) in late 1800 before founding the Holt Manufacturing Company in California. It was not until 1910 that the Holt used the name Caterpillar for the internationally recognized brand today. It is also the story of a merger in 1925 between two manufacturers of the time. Indeed, at almost the same time as the Holt was developing, C.L. Best produced its first steel tracked tractors, with a simple canopy on top like the Best 30, and like many brands at the time, it was in agriculture that Caterpillar machines proved their worth as the Tracked Tractor 20. The company is continuing its development and their machines will be found on the largest construction sites such as the construction of the Hoover dam on the Nevada-Arizona border. But also the construction site of the no less famous Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Caterpillar will then expand its range of construction machinery with those we know today: graders, compactors, loaders and excavators... to reach an international reputation that will allow the huge CAT 77C rigid dump trucks to participate in the construction sites of the Three Gorges Dam in China and Kansai Airport, in Osaka, Japan. Caterpillar is also recognized in the design of engines such as the C13. You can find a lot of information on the history of this brand on the Caterpillar website.
