Al-Bahar introduces next generation Cat equipment at the Big 5 Heavy
New machines on display included the Cat 320 excavator and Cat 962L wheel loader
Al-Bahar in partnership with Caterpillar unveiled two new machines the Cat 320 excavator and Cat 962L wheel loader at the Big 5 Heavy 2018 Expo in Dubai. In addition to these two launches, the stand exhibited a wide range of latest offerings including Cat 950 GC and 966L wheel loaders, Cat D8R dozer, Cat 340 excavator, and Cat 239D compact track loader. Cat Connect offerings, including both the technological updates and services, were among the other updates displayed at the Caterpillar/Al-Bahar booth.
The Cat series of next generation excavators have features that provide up to 45% efficiency improvement for the operator, up to 25% reduction in fuel consumption, and up to 15% maintenance cost reduction. The new range will reflect Cat’s simplification strategy, which would mean slashing the number of its platforms, cabin types, and air filters by more than half.
Samer Ismail, earthmoving and excavation product manager, Cat, said: “The construction industry is one of the most demanding segments these days. With newer challenging projects and scenarios, the industry is known for its attribute to stay competitive. We understand the industry is in need of revolutionary solutions, and as a leading brand offering construction machinery, we are prepared to help our customers navigate through challenges with the 'New Challenger' range that will help their operations succeed. Our exhibit has helped our customers to realize the benefits of our new and latest range of offerings. The idea was to show our customers what Caterpillar along with Al-Bahar could offer them throughout their project life cycle, from beginning to end.”
