March 4, 2014
LAS VEGAS – Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE: CAT) is highlighting the latest technology solutions and fuel efficiency for its U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim and Tier 4 Final construction equipment at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014. An estimated 125,000 show attendees will have the opportunity to experience four Caterpillar exhibits, totaling nearly 60,000 square feet of floor space and featuring more than 40 machines.
“While our customers experience the advantages of Cat equipment and our dealer network daily, we look forward to this opportunity every three years to show them the latest in our product lineup at CONEXPO-CON/AGG,” said Caterpillar Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Doug Oberhelman. “This year, we are excited to demonstrate how our Cat® Connect portfolio of integrated technologies can help our customers get the most out of their current machines and our newest construction products.” Cat Connect offers flexible services and solutions for customers to monitor, manage and enhance job site productivity, safety, fuel usage and equipment utilization and uptime. By leveraging a broad suite of technologies, Cat Connect can integrate products, processes and people to not only help customers succeed on the job site, but also across mixed fleet operations of any size.
“We continuously hear from customers who use our products that in addition to technology advancements to help improve operator performance and productivity, fuel efficiency is a key driver for improving their operations,” said Caterpillar Group President Ed Rapp. “We’ve responded with Tier 4 Interim and Tier 4 Final machines that deliver significantly improved fuel efficiency, and our customers have noticed the difference. Not only does this help our customers succeed through reduced operating costs, it also results in fewer emissions for more sustainable operations—better quality, better emissions, better fuel economy. It really does show the power of systems integration and the power of Cat products and services.”

More than a dozen new Cat machines will make their North American trade show debut at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, including the new 336F Hydraulic Hybrid Excavator.
