Caterpillar’s 1000th Cat® 24 motor grader recently rolled off the production line!
To celebrate this milestone, Caterpillar management and production line employees gathered at the Decatur, Illinois, motor grader plant in the United States for a grand ceremony.
Tina Czerwinski said.
For 26 years, it has been the combined efforts of all of us that have gotten us to where we are today. I am very proud of everyone’s hard work and dedication.
The landmark motor grader will work for Rio Tinto’s mines in Australia.
Stephen Jones, Rio Tinto’s General Manager of Planning, Integration and assets, gave a strong endorsement of the Cat 24 motor grader, saying.
We have been using Cat 24 graders haul roads at our mines, and the Cat 24 graders offers the perfect combination of power, machine weight and shovel width to better maintain haul roads for our large mining fleet. We are proud to have received our monumental 1000th Cat 24 motor grader, the third generation of motor grader we have used in our Pilbara mining operations.
Caterpillar has introduced the Cat 24 grader on 1995, which is primarily used to build and maintain driving roads for haul trucks on mining sites.
The Cat 24 grader is now in its third generation. Compared to its predecessors, it has further improved its performance in all aspects.
