Cat Trial 13: Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site celebrates the work that takes place on-site day and night
Inspired by the best-selling children’s book “Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site” Caterpillar has released its latest Trial series video, which tells the story of Crane Truck, Cement Mixer, Dump Truck, Bulldozer and Excavator as they spend an action-packed day in the dirt.
The Cat Trials have taken on multiple tasks over several years, including playing a giant game of Jenga and lighting up a Chinese mountain side, which have racked up millions of views. In Cat Trial 13, the manufacturer brings that story to life with special guest appearances from three Cat dealer service trucks whose motto is “when you go to bed, we go to work!”
Cat Trial 13: Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site was enacted to celebrate the work operators do every single day and the commitment Caterpillar’s dealers make to provide support any time, day or night.
In May 2022, Caterpillar launched three new compact wheel loaders.
Crane Truck is a Cat TL642 Telehandler which can handle any task and “offers stability, maneuverability, speed and power in any application,” Caterpillar says.
Bulldozer is a Cat D6 Track Type Tractor with an integrated engine and power train designed and built by Caterpillar to work together for “maximum productivity, efficiency and reliability.”
Cement Mixer is powered by a Cat On-Highway Truck Engine, built “to have multiple lives,” while Dump Truck is a Cat 745 Articulated Truck, re-enhanced with new controls, transmission-protection features, hoist-assist system, advanced automatic traction control system, stability-assist machine rollover warning system and a fuel saving ECO mode.
In June 2022, Caterpillar said that it would move its worldwide headquarters to Texas.
Finally, Excavator is a 349 Hydraulic Excavator that comes with simple to use technologies like Cat GRADE with 2D, Grade Assist and Payload, helping to “boost your operating efficiency up to 45%,” the company says.
In September 2022, Volvo CE and Brio joined forces to inspire budding engineers through the launch of a wooden toy range.
