Caterpillar finally rolling down the highways!

So .... like so many other people, I've reunited with an old friend through Facebook, and what do you know, he's a truck driver.   The other day, he sent me a photo of a really neat truck from CAT!
Unfortunately for him, he didn't get to drive it, but still .... he's probably one of the first ones to actually catch a glimpse of this new Caterpillar truck!
I had no idea Caterpillar made such nice-looking machines, so of course, nosey me had to investigate.

Turns out these trucks are brand spanking new! It's a Class 8 CT660.  It's a versatile truck, doing anything from hauling your waste to the dump to hauling your furniture, heavy goods and whatever else needs transporting down the highway.

Caterpillar didn't enter the vocational truck business without the proper research!   They sent team members out to ride along with truckers to observe what the truckers enjoyed comfort wise, what they lacked, what they wished for.... They looked into what the ultimate solutions would be for the best visibility, best comfort and best specs, all of the information was gathered from the ones who know these trucks the best: Truck Drivers!

I'm so excited about the birth of a new truck.  Not only is it good looking, but Caterpillar is a trusted brand what heavy machinery is concerned, so it'll be exciting to see what this highway truck of theirs will mount to and how popular it will be.
Cosmetically speaking, I think it bares somewhat of a resemblance to the Mack truck, but it's got its own style as well.

The pictures below have been shamelessly copied and borrowed from the Caterpillar website.
To learn more about this new truck, go visit
There they have all kinds of neat videos posted, as well as more information about their new truck.

Now let's get to the juicy stuff... the pictures!! Away we go!

Again, for more information about this truck, visit 
Their videos are really cool and you can get a better view of the CT660 there.

Anyone driving a CT660, feel free to visit us on Facebook and upload your pic!! (Or at least a pic of the truck ..... who are we kidding, that's really what we want to see ;-) hehe
