Cat trucks take on new life as moving driving range targets

By |  July 7, 2015

The sixth installment of Caterpillar‘s “Built for It” trials relates perfectly to the recent U.S. Open. Cat trucks take on new life as moving targets in a driving range.

The greens, which were built in three days, were installed in the dump bodies of Cat equipment, including a 793F haul truck.

“I would say we probably used every piece of machinery here at Tinaja to build this golf course,” says Bill Olson, senior demonstrator instructor for Cat in Tinaja Hills, Ariz.
