DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

The experience to harness the “feel” of a machine. A commanding knowledge of the power of technology. A sixth sense of surroundings and the safety of others. All of these skills and more make operators the heroes of the job site. The Caterpillar Operator Challenge is an opportunity for operators to put their skills to the test against the best in their area at participating Cat® dealer locations.

Local event champions advance to the North American Regional Finals in Clayton, North Carolina, October 21-25, 2019. Regional champions advance to compete against operators from around the world at the Global Finals at ConExpo 2020!

Using the bucket of a Cat compact track loader, operators will transport a horizontal bar through narrow gates in a tight, winding course.

A Cat wheel loader is used to carry upright cones through a demanding course. Balance, speed and precision will be needed to win this round.

Operators will use a Cat excavator to move a disorganized pile of tires from one area to a neat stack in another area in the shortest time possible.

A Cat mini excavator is used to relocate key objects and place them in designated areas on a staggered platform.
