Whether it’s on the track or moving dirt, success has a lot to do with training. #CatRacing driver @TylerReddick recently experienced that when he used racing simulators to stay sharp when he couldn't go to the track. Machine operators can use similar technology in Cat Simulators. While nothing can replace stick time in a real machine, our simulators offer a great way to get started — whether it’s introducing a new operator to the controls or giving an experienced operator the opportunity to refine skills.

The fully overhauled, next generation 6060 Hydraulic Mining Shovel is more durable and nearly 30 tons heavier than legacy machines, which translates into longer service life and better performance. Thanks to collaboration between our team and our customers who know mining best, the next generation 6060 is ready for the next era of mining and will work harder and last longer. Find out how our customer's input helped in the redesign of the 6060 at caterpillar.com/annualreport. #LetsDoTheWork

For over 45 years, we’ve given end-of-life products a rebirth through the sustainable practice called remanufacturing. Believe it or not, this process starts well before the product is nearing its final days. Engineers use design guidelines to build key products with remanufacturing in mind. When a component reaches the end of its initial serviceable life, dealers return the used component, referred to as core, to us. Then, our Reman team gets to work cleaning, inspecting and remanufacturing it to its original factory specifications. In doing so, we reduce waste and minimize the need for the raw material, energy and water required to produce new parts. Sustainability is a core part of our company. Follow @wearecaterpillar to find out how to join the team that builds (and rebuilds ) what matters. #iAmCaterpillar

Check out this video looking at Caterpillar in the 1940s! In the mid-40s, we introduced the first company-designed-and-built bulldozer blade and the first company-designed-and-built pull-type scraper. Just like today, our products helped customers complete major infrastructure projects like highways and dams around the world. Learn more: caterpillar.com/history #caterpillar95

Check out this medium track-type tractor! It was one of three special edition tractors made to commemorate the 175,000 MTTT high drive production milestone. Introduced in 1985, the MTTT meant improved durability and ease of service of the powertrain components for our customers. The medium tractors also took advantage of one additional high drive benefit – the ability to extend the tracks forward or rearward to optimize tractor balance for unique applications. See the link in our bio for more about the milestone. #LetsDoTheWork

As COVID-19 began to affect people across the country, the company behind Cat Workwear ramped up production of masks for those in need. After delivering 15,000 to local medical workers they received an order for 250,000 to support Caterpillar employees at work, and those who would soon return. “We were able to use our company’s values to be nimble and find a solution to an urgent need that was there and that’s kind of how we got behind it. It was our supply chain, our freight forwarder, people in the office breaking shipments down into smaller packers for delivery. Everyone was pitching in.” See more at cat.com/95. #LetsDoTheWork #Caterpillar95

Many hospitals have veered into uncharted territory during the COVID-19 pandemic, requiring them to operate differently to limit virus spread, while also still caring for patients. For many Atlanta hospitals, that new way of working now includes tents. Lots of them. This isn’t your typical camping or tailgating tent set up; these tents need plenty of power for lights, medical equipment and AC to ensure patients and staff are both safe and comfortable. For Cat Dealer @yanceypowersystems , it’s been an opportunity to step up and help local hospitals adapt to a new way of working. From the very beginning, the Yancey team considered every detail of the medical tent set up: the exact equipment and generators required, the equipment set up as well as the type of generator power required to ensure the sites could stay up and running without interruption. “It’s about taking care of the customer, and that’s ingrained in our culture. It’s really about follow-up, follow through, and truly caring during this time when lives are on the line,” said Drew Eckford, Yancey Rental Power manager.
