Overview

One name stands at the top of the earthmoving industry: Caterpillar. The company’s bulldozers, loaders, haulers, scrapers, graders, excavators, and other heavy equipment have literally altered the Earth, helping to build our modern civilization. Constant development and innovative engineering have made “Caterpillar” the measure by which all other equipment manufacturers are judged.

Caterpillar Chronicle traces the evolution of the company’s earthmover, industrial, and agricultural equipment lines. Veteran author and earthmoving industry insider Eric C. Orlemann has gone behind Cat’s corporate doors to get the untold story as well as never-before-seen photographs of rare prototypes, experimental machines, and special-application machines. The earliest steam tractors, early diesel-engined tractors, the first elevated-sprocket-drive machines, and the largest modern mining machines are reviewed in fascinating detail. Over 200 color and 50 black-and-white photographs of modern mining marvels and antique machines make this a must-have for any Cat fan.
